Makes the -/+ the same colour as the forum title not the general link colour and puts a space in between the three characters to make them easier to click.
Thanks for the suggestions im currently having issues with vB4 RC2 on IIS7 so i hope to actually get something done tomorrow.

Oh btw i have 'Notifications on new thread' working but it currently doesn't not filter forums and can not be disabled, this will be added in the near future.

Also anyone using PHP 5.3+ who wishes to apply for a beta program please contact me. As i hope to iron out all of the current bugs before releasing 0.7

Just an fyi - the name and the focus on explaining commands made me think this wasn't actually a chat box at all. You'd probably get a wider install base if it was clearer that it works as a simple shout/chat box

One smell suggestion, you have the background set to use the same CSS as whatever the forum's forum-row is set to. This is fine except if you are using a texture for the forum row, as the CSS for the forum row does not currently have the repeat attribute, therefore depending on the texture used the background of the chat box can be half texture and half color. And of course as the chatbox can be made bigger sooner or later the user will see the gap however big the texture used is.

I fixed this on my forum by just adding the repeat to the forum-row CSS, but you could perhaps at this to that div it's self to avoid this cropping up for your installers.

lol I have to be honest, I can live without all the extras, I just wanted a simple chat box with a couple of commands but I guess a lot of people like all the extras (till their forum gets much bigger lol).

Currently that would require a custom hook, however in GCBOS 0.7 you just need to insert <!-- {SHOUTBOX} --> where ever you want it to display. For example hooks take a look at the plugin's Display: forumhome etc that are installed by default.


Oh the current release should work fine with RC4

In .7 did you make it so that the date format can either be customized or isn't reliant on military time display?

So I just noticed something. In version 6.5 a .svn folder is uploaded. In all the other installs its not present. What was that folder for?
