I have two questions. First this thing installed like a champ and I love it.

My first question is, can you censor out words that are in the chatbox? I thought I would give it a try and was shocked to see that I could enter several bad words that are censored out in the forum.

Second, my background is black so the initial text box is colored white where you enter your chat text. Because the text is normally white with a black background the initial text will not show up unless you pick a text color of something other than White or black.

For me, the words I have defined to be censored on the forums are also censored in the chatbox. I don't see any options to enable/disable this, so it should be enabled by default as far as I can tell.

Try adding this to "additional.css" for each active style:


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

where "XXXXXX" is the color you wish to be the default text color in the message entry element.

I don't know if this is directly related to this plugin or not, but I figure I could get some direction here.


I see this on the chatbox when installed.


How do I fix/install the relevant images for the chatbox smilies button & the "remove text formatting" button?

Click on the "Locate Message In Archive" icon associated with the message, then once you are in the archive, you will see a checkbox for that message, check that, then go down to the lower right of the form and click "Delete Selected."
