Ah, this is a problem with versions with the ckeditor. Here's what you're gonna do:

- Find out the names of the missing files and their paths. You can do it right clicking on the missing image and clicking Properties.
- Reupload the missing files to your server (if you don't have them, create a default style and get them)
- Refresh the browser

Might take a while for the files to load, but it worked for me.

Those are the files you need:

<your style's folder>/editor/smilie.gif
<your style's folder>/statusicon/post_new.gif
<your style's folder>/statusicon/post_old.gif

Hope this helps.

My thanks for a great mod.
Simple yet enough features to appease the members...
Works well without being demanding on the server...

Is it possible for a moderator without access to the vBulletin Options section in the admincp to turn the chat off/on?

For example, maybe the chatbox moderator groups in the "Groups able to moderate ChatBox" config being able to do this?

I doubt it's currently possible, but might be a useful idea to allow certain usergroups or maybe even specific members to be able to turn the chatbox on/off from the main chatbox page.

At this point, the only place I see where the chatbox can be turned on or off is within the vBulletin Options section, but I do not want to give access to that section of my admincp to chatbox moderators.

I like the ChatBox itīs a great add-on. A sound after a new message had been send would make it perfect.

Also I want to know if itīs possible to put a "Whose-in-Chat"-lsit into a siedbar via the vBulletin BlockManager.

Great ChatBox and it works with 4.1.6 just like a charm. It's light (does not affect the server load like some others do) and easy to install. Thanks!

Valter said he'd look into it, but that was about two years ago. Chances are it's not going to happen.

Icon missing

The icon to the left of date and time has been missing since I upgraded to 4.1.5. Any suggestions on where I can find the settings to put an icon there instead of the default "question mark box"?
