Quick follow up. I've fixed it. It turns out Cloudflare (which I've been using for some time) has changed how they cache our forums and it for some reason renders the chatbox unusable. Putting Cloudflare into development mode or purging the cache had no effect. I had to disable it entirely.

They're still my DNS but my site isn't being accelerated by them anymore. It's all working fine again. Hope this helps anyone else with the same problem.

I just wanted to say thank you for this. I know it was a long time ago, but after reading about 40 pages, it was very nice to find the answer! (Since the OP is not quoted here, the above were the instructions on how to remove the chatbox from a certain theme.)

Hey there, I have installed this specially when our chat rooms go down for technical reason. However although I edit settings so only banned users cant post on the chatbox, I find that guests can't post either. Is there a fix to that? I want guests to be able to post too.

Hello,

The chaybox has been installed on our site for a long time. Suddenly the chatbox stopped accepting characters other than english as the forum is in greek, even a text color change in english characters is not working.

Any help would be great

Thanking you in advance

Antonis

I don't know about date as I don't use the date, kind of useless in my opinion.

But just search for PHP date formats.
