after install i noticed this IE error when I first go to the site i get this attached error.
Chatbox is empty and showing "Loading".
In firefox it shows loading as well, but not the error.
If i hit refresh on the page, it goes away. Any fix for this?

I had GCBOS, which was ok, but most have been a resource hog. I disabled it, and tried this..WOW, the forums seem so much faster now..I had no idea.

Fantastic MOD. Marked as INSTALLED!!!

Took less than 30 secs to get it working on Google Chrome. No other bugs fm other users.

How can I change the background colour of the main chat box.

I assume its something to do with CSS, but thats all voodoo to me.
