I apologize if this has been asked before but how many members can "chat" in this at a time?

Thanks!

I'm so sorry to have to ask this question - I really feel stupid, but I can't find > Plugin System > Manage Products. I can find AdminCP with no problem, but I don't have those other files/folders. Would someone please be so kind as to point me in the right direction! Thanks so very much!

Terri

It's located on the bottom left menu column. It should be third from the bottom listed as Plugins & Products. This is assuming you are either the root admin or have that type of admin acess if you're not.

Cyb, nice neat mod - thank you.

Something I found out that may help others:
To prevent huge posts, entering size into the bbcode ban box doesn't work, it needs to be size=3,size=4,size=5 etc.

Suggestion:
How about being able to specify number of messages in the small chatbox, and number of messages in the large chatbox?

Possible issue:
If a user leaves their computer on all day with a page showing with the chatbox on all day, it keeps polling all day. It would be nice if it checked for activity (user logged in) and stopped polling if appropriate.

I am wondering if anyone has had server problems with this mod? Hostgator point it out for me, thats it was seeing to much activity coming from the chatbox that they shut me down. Anyone has had a similar problem? I knew for a fact that my chatbox had well over 200k post and over 3k of pages, probably that was macking the server to high load. Let me know


Regards
-Leo

How would I get this to show on my homepage which is vbadvanced? Thanks in advance.

I found the instructions for my question about VBA CMPS on page 9 of this thread and added it to my site, it works great... next time I will read all the questions before asking.

Hack is installed and working great on my forums and vbadvanced - thanks a bunch 8)
