Hi Andrea,

Ensure that hack templates are unmodified.

What happens when you submit new message?

Cyb,

2.2 now loses the "x messages since your last visit" on the collapsed chatbox. This was nice, because you could see if you were missing anything without having to open (uncollapse) it.

Other than that, niiice!

What exactly do you mean with "Ensure that hack templates are unmodified." I've installed the new release over the old one allowing overwriting. I've not touched the templates. In case what I've to do?

When I submit a message I get this message

Your submission could not be processed because a security token was missing or mismatched.

If this occurred unexpectedly, please inform the administrator and describe the action you performed before you received this error.

I tested it in safari, firefox 3, and opera 9.5. Not tested in IE6/7 so if someone will please test there, thanks.

I also fixed a bug with the refreshing of the chatbox, not it will reset the refresh timeout after every submit so that you do not get lots of refreshes when submitting alot of messages.

And a bug where the character count is not reset successfully after each message submission.

And lastly I added a loading indicator..

Hi Cyb, I've had the mod installed since September and I'm going to be updating to v2.2 soon. I've searched and I can't find an answer to this. Is there a way to display the date as "Today 12:31" for example like vBulletin does. I can't find a way to do it using the php time codes.

Thanks.

It was not removed. I guess you have customized hack templates. Revert them to restore missing features.

I really don't know why this happens on some forums. I've asked in coding forums about this, still no replies.

It's strange that you get "security token" error on message submission. There are no changes in latest release which will cause such problems.

Version 2.1 is attached to this post. Before downgrading to 2.1 try to fix problem by re-importing v2.2 and/or clearing forum cokies/re-loging in.


ATTACHMENT NOTE for other users: Attached zip contains older version of ChatBox hack. Check first post in thread for latest version.
