Installed and working lovely, thanks.

But can I ask for a small change please? If "ChatBox always collapsed by default (ChatBox Full not affected)" is set to true would it be possible for the ChatBox not to download any messages until it is expanded? I tried setting "Logged-out by default" on as well but still the ChatBox loads its list of messages when the page is loaded even though they are not going to be displayed.

Great Mod !

Need help on what to put in this box (below) I tried putting only the forum name but it showed up on all pages.
Show ChatBox on pages (comma separated THIS_SCRIPT locations)
Blank to show on all pages (not recommended because of server load)

I want to use it only for our staff forum and not the public forum . any help please?

Thanks

Hi Dale.B

you have to Block the users that you dont want to view the Chatbox

In usergroup permissions
Look at the last pic on right above in Screenshot (by the coder)

set usergroup NOT able to view forums to all but your staff/member that you want

to see your usergroups goto to
admin C/p
Usergroups
Usergroup manager
Then on the right hand side of the screen you'll have user Id

Thats the number you type in
default is 1,8 (unregistered & Banned)


Then to edit like SS
goto admin c/p
Options
Vsa Chatbox
Permissions
Usergroups NOT able to view ChatBox (comma separated ID list)


P.S
In that box you mentioned Show ChatBox on pages
my says
index

Hope this helps

Ok guys do the following to fix the issue until they update the plugin

Goto: Plugins & Products

Export the VSa - Chatbox, saving it to your computer.

Open with text editor or xml editor

Find & Change the following lines:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

If you smilie button isnt working replace this line also.


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Re-install the plugin replacing the old version and bingo.. all fixed.

**This edit is done solely on helping the community.
I take no credit for the plugin.

Hi, there is a lot of pages here and im struggling to find the info I need. I would like to place the shoutbox in one forum only. Basically my site has 2 levels of users, pg13 and over 18's. I want the chat box to the in the over 18's forum only.

Is there a way to do that? Example the forum number is 98 (no not that many forums, just a number of changes over the years)

Thanks.

I'll appologise in advance if this has been answered.

Now please stick with me as i'm a total noob at all this. I've downloaded this chatbox and it's exactly what i'm after.

My only problem is that the icon to the left of the time/date and the text for the smilie drop down box are not showing. The link is there but the image/text is not shown. What is in place is a small icon in the shape of a page with 3 colors in it.

This icon is putting the text out of place etc

Please please please help
