Is this a widget? Because I have my CMPS disabled, and I would like to use this as a module for vbadvanced, how would I use it as a module?

Thanks.

cant put the box in my footer

I copy {vb:raw vsachatbox} in my Footer under the old chatbox but nothing to see :/
the "above footer" option is not working with the sidebar.
