Installed and seems to work well.

But is there any way of changing the background colour of the chat box without editing the background colour of the style like this?

Style Manager > "Your Style" > StyleVars > blockrow_background

Thanks.

Regarding the Database start / stop using cron sessions

You need to update the datastore database as well

"vsachatbox_enable_product";i:0;s:22: needs to become "vsachatbox_enable_product";i:1;s:22:

In the Options title

Hi,
nice chat addon, but my member complain that everybody is able to read the messages and it is more a shout box than a chat. I am sure there is a setting to disable the archive isn't it?
Would be happy to get some help / advice with this. Thanks! Fränk

The above should enable the live chat for you

My new issue is getting more than 50 posts to display on one page in the archive. Anyone have a solution for that?

Thanks

chatbox in popup window

I would like to have chatbox in a popup window. A new window without the header, navbar and footer. Just the chatbox. Do you think it is possible?

I would like to have Private Room tabs. Is that available? I have installed and it's great but our members would like PM options.

Thanks.

Uninstalling subsequently causes a database error when editing usergroup. There were left-over blank, non labeled (with the radio buttons and textboxes intact) options for the chatbox in the usergroup editing. (never configured them)

I couldn't get it to work with my custom pages, as stated here, so I uninstalled it after waiting 9 days for support and never got around to configuring the options.

Outdated code (VSa forum stats uses a table for display instead of the vbulletin standard div), lack of support, and errors with your MODs, Valter? Not good. Perhaps it would be more helpful to focus less on quanity and more on quality.

Edit: Sorry if that was harsh, being frustrated is bad time to post I guess.
