To each their own! Perhaps Valter can add an input field in ACP for optional text that goes between the name and the message. Just my $.02.

Someone sent me a private message on how to change the bg color of the input box, so I'll just say it here.

in the vsa_chatbox_input template will make it white (as you can see by the #fff). Just change the hex code to whatever color you wish. Be careful in the color you choose though because the color of the text is variable depending on what color you're typing in. You can make that static though by changing the variable which is right before this text under "color:".

How can change the height of the chatbox
In the options "Message listing area height (ChatBox)". But note that you may not need to do this, as there are two viewing modes. When a user selects "Chatbox full" they get a much larger box.

For anybody who wants to do this, in the vsa_chatbox_bit template,
replace

I took this a bit further:

Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And enabled "Align messages to usernames"

Love the new update, this chat has been a huge hit on my site.

Few things I'd like to see in the future if possible:

-Disable Login/Logout on Chatbox Full
-Option for alternate background colors on odd & even lines

Thanks Valter!

To assist future searches, you really should explain what the problem was, and what you did to fix it.

You have to revert your templates for the chatbox.

Is there any chance someone can make this into a Widget so we can include it in the CMS aswell?

Cheers

Good morning,
after long time i've discovered the problem of my chat.
it was my pc because i've tried form an other pc and all was ok.
Said that today i see with pleasure that there is an update but i do not know what does it mean revert the template to install the update.
In thepast when i update a product is only necessary to import the new .xml file and stop.
In this produvt there's to do other operations? if someone can say better to me what is revert the template i'm happy.
perhaps it means that i must leave the code that i past in forumhome and AFTER i must REpast in template? i'm trying to understand what can be.
