Hi everyone. Im asking for some advice here as i do not understand how to do something.

The chatbox is installed fine and works fine.

However only a limited amount of people are allowed to see this shoutbox. Those people all have access to a single subforum : http://forum.clipwiregames.com//foru...e-Shit-General

The rest of the forum population use a different chat system.

On 3.8 i had this setup and had no issue, but I am not seeing or understanding how to do this now in 4.0 and with this updated version.

To add to desired template (example FORUMHOME):
1. Add 'index' to THIS_SCRIPT locations (Product options)
2. Add 'FORUMHOME' to template names (Product options)
3. Open 'FORUMHOME' template and put "{vb:raw vsachatbox}" to desired line (for example after '<!-- /main -->') -> Save

But where to i put this or..how do i define this so it is only forum 98?

THanks

One question from my side.

After standard installation the chat have the complete width of my webside. What I have to do to use this only at the same dimension as my category ( forum ) because I have boxes on the left side.

Need some help here customizing this a bit and I know one of you can or has done this. I want to basically do a cut and paste of the chatbox to post outside the forum. I did this before with phpbb3 but have not been able to do this with the chatbox.

Fox example, the chatbox has a "full version" which you could use in an iframe on an external page. However you get the header and footer which is not good. You can get rid of some of that with the iframe but would still have the header. I basically want a 720px by 350px (roughly) of just the chatbox.

Has anyone done this or have any ideas on how to accomplish?

****Resolved*****

I see no option in this mod to do that. If one of your members can't help themselves, infract them. And of course keep a low logout set - no more than maybe 5 minutes.

In chatbox CP I set 'Show chatbox on pages' to

and 'Show ChatBox in templates' to

and set 'Position on Page' to 'Disabled'
Thank you for the tip. Works perfectly

Chatbox archive is limited to 50 entries per page. Any value above 50 in ACP will result in 50 entries per page displayed. I want to have 100 entries per page in archive. How can this be done?
