how would I move the box to its own page? I know I would add this: $cybchatbox

But how would I make a blank vb page to put it on?

You realize however, that It comes with a built in full page chat option, right?

Will this work with vBadvanced? I tried creating a module with the contents of "$cybchatbox" but that didn't work, as expected.

Any ideas?

EDIT: SO i was able to get the chatbox to appear on the page but just sits there and says "Loading..." on the vBa index page. On the forums index page it works fine.

Any ideas?

Like sephv1, I'd also like to place this on my vBadvanced home page as a center module. Can you check this out please and get back to us? Pretty please?

Oh, and *installed and marked as such*!

This hack ROCKS!!!

Is anyone else having trouble with search spiders/bots attaching the archive? I just tried to add a bunch of nofollows in there, but I'm still about 4000 over my normal number of users online because of Yahoo Slurp.

Any suggestions? I really don't want them scouring the chat archive, and they are destroying my stats.

Well, you could set it so that only registered members can see the chatbox... that would solve the spider issue. It is doesn't, you can use the set it so that only members with X posts can see/use the chatbox.

On our forum, you have to have 50 posts to see/use the chatbox to make new members familiar with the rest of the forum before they get sucked into chatting.

I have it set so that not logged in users can see it, but not post of course. And I do have it set to 10 posts or greater to view, but I'm currently only using the ChatBox Full, since I can't find an easy way to only have it inline in one specific forum on the site, not sitewide. I guess adding not logged in people to the list can't really cause that much harm since if they aren't a user they can't use it anyway.

The root of the problem here is Slurp, it's just completely ignoring the robots.txt file. I found more than a few instances of this while googleing for more info. So I'm not the only one this is happening to. People are reporting that Yahoo is crawling their site, but the stuff it shouldn't be searching never seems to make it into the search engine, however that's still breaking the robots.txt rules, even though Yahoo is adamant they obey them 100%.
