I have messages set to be at the bottom, and each refresh forces the user to the top of the chat box, rather than the bottom where they can see new messages. Anyway to change that?

After upgrading to 4.2.2, the chatbox constantly sits are "Refreshing Messages" with "Loading" where the messages should be. Any suggestions?

It seems to be having trouble with www.domain.com/forums vs domain.com/forums

Any suggestions on how to remedy this?

Are you sure it is from this mod, I see no split in the mod, and no plugins running on the hook location from the error.

Disable the mod and see if the error still shows.

Is there anyway to force the background color of the chat box across all themes? We use several themes and it's a pain at time with people using different font colors.

Also anyway to set it so it remembers your font color and your font size for the messages?

I'm getting a server 500 error when uninstalling this addon. How can I fix this?

I go to Admin CP / Plugins & Products / Manage Products / under CSa - Chatbox I change Edit to Uninstall, hit Go, hit Yes, and get "Error 500 - Internal Server Error".

Edit: I figured it out.

You should really explain the procedure. It may seem silly to you now, but when the next person finds your post after a search, 'I figured it out' won't help them at all.

Works great, but every once in a while we'll get a random user who is able to get a message through to the chatbox. Very weird. No idea why.

Settings are in place not to allow anyone other than Moderators and Admins to see it.

Running 4.1.11 PL 3.

question. How do you have different chat boxes for different forums.

We are looking for a couple of different chat boxes for each of our leagues.

Example

NHL would have 1 for NHL only
NBA would have 1 for NBA only.

We do not want to mix the members up while chatting about a topic of sports. We do not wnat NHlers talking NHL while others are trying to talk NBA or NFL. We are looking to give each sports it's own chat boxes

Don't think you can

Someone can feel free to correct me, but I don't think that works with this product. One chatbox per board.

I am happy to find a fluid Cb

thank you for your work

In the next version
would it be possible to just add:
- Members connected to the cb
- Display latest topics posted on the forum

It would be great full shot after

thank you again

Any luck with this? The ability to assign a chatbox to one or more forums would be ideal.
