There seems to be a path issue with the icon next to the date/time stamp. Can you point me in the right direction as to where I can find this path? I went through the templates and could not find that particular image path.

We're supposed to change colors in CSS these days, but the title can be changed in Phrases. AdminCP>Languages and Phrases>Search in Phrases>"Chatbox" leads you to vsacb_chatbox - just hit the Edit button next to it.
Try "<font color="red">My Shoutbox</font>".

I did a complete search for post_old.gif and post_new.gif in the code and it shows as "not found" on the following templates.

vsa_chatbox
vsa_chatbox_archive_bit
vsa_chatbox_bit
vsa_chatbox_input
vsa_chatbox_status
vsa_chatbox_topchatters_bit

What's a "CB Log-in/Log-out"?

And I wonder what these two lines in the Options means?
Log-out user from ChatBox after X minutes of inactivity
Logged-out by default Yes No
I mean, I understand the first by itself, but then what does the second mean? You mean when the page is first loaded they're logged out? Until when?

edit: Okay, I see the answer to my second question now. A button appears that they can click to log in. Still, I might like to change the wording for my non-techie forum.

Could I suggest adding colons between the username and the message?
I did this myself and in my opinion it looks a bit better.
For anybody who wants to do this, in the vsa_chatbox_bit template,
replace

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

with

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I also changed the background color of my input box because the white hurts my eyes against a dark forum background.

Eh, I don't like the colon suggest. Looks weird now... but to each their own, right?

Latest release works great as long as everyone does what is suggested and reverts their template for the chatbox.

Thanks for the update Valter!

Thanks for the suggestion ChopBam! I'm using this one:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I think it looks better without the extra space before the username.
