If I am not mistaken, you need to go to:

AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Plugin Manager -> Cyb- Chatbox -> parse_templates -> Edit

Find:

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


Replace with:

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


This should open the Chatbox Full version (the link in the navbar) in a new window. I'm not sure of the HTML command for a new tab, nor if that feature even exists. Let me know if that works.

Once a user changes their text color, there is no way to change it back to the default... am I missing something here? The problem is that most attempt to change it to black thinking that is the default text color so in the end the users who use our dark skin can't read the black text, they need a way to select the default text color.

Scratch that.... For what ever reason the .xml file won't load from the browse button on either my mac or pc but it loads just fine when i manually place it in the includes/xml folder on the server.


Thanks
Thanks...this worked for me.

Need Help (Loading Error)

Hi,

I've had this mod installed for around 6 weeks. It worked great. Yesterday got home from work, haven't modified the site at all and the chat box says 'Loading' and also the same applies to the 'CYB Stats'

Any ideas would be really appreciated. It's obviously something to do the AJAX but can't figure it out.

Cyber, can you help me please?

Thx

Zboss

Just go into VBulletin Options >> CYB - Chatbox >> You will then see an option saying 'Position on page (Disable if you add ChatBox manually in templates)' >> Change this to disabled as you have manually added the code to each template.

That should work.

I think cyb doesn't want his hack to be used by vBulletin users. Reason lies in my previous posts, he could at least say "sorry, I can't answer this problem."

Agreed <.<

I have a rather straight forward problem appears to be some sort of bug and haven't heard anything since posting in this thread already. If the damn thing wasn't so popular on my site I'd just remove it..

Once a user changes their text color, there is no way to change it back to the default... am I missing something here? The problem is that most people attempt to change it to black thinking that is the default text color, however that is not the case for all skins, so in the end the users who use our dark skin can't read the black text, they need a way to select the default text color for the skin they're currently using.
...maybe Cyb is away on vacation? At any rate, a simple reply here letting us know you can or can't fix the problem would be cool.

Cyb,

I was wondering if it'd be possible to add a feature that would turn the chatbox on and off at certain times of the day. For instance, I'm interested in turning the chatbox on only between a certain set of hours.

If this is possible I'd be willing to compensate you for the work.

Thanks.

-TN

Think this has been asked before without an answer, so wondering of someone got it figured out....

1. Disable edit button from all users (except mods, maybe) <-- solved
2. Disable archive for all users (except mods)
3. Do not delete messages when user is banned
4. auto scroll to bottom when message order is top to bottom

hide edit link...

Figured one out... To hide the edit message link for non-mods:
Find (in the product's .xml file) -- There are 2 instances of this string... :

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

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

Alternatively, to INHERIT the *can delete* setting, Replace with:

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


Import the product, allow overwrite.
Both methods work fine...

Suspect someone could construct the link and then edit messages, But i can live with it...
To disable it in the code (not tested), search for Ccb_controlArcMessage.prototype.Save and edit the function >> edit the condition???: if (this.active)


===
disabling the archive might require a lot of code to be edited?
