Thanks!, in that case all the text is a button but it's no important.. I thinked that the menu would appear at the end of text.. instead it is always at beginning great!

Finally i have Chatbox in my CMS home page!

You will have to find where the code begins with the chatbox and then stops

Example: When I start the chatbox code like this:

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

and ends with:

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

Buried way back in the thread someone actually figured that out. But it was a lengthy kluge and it was probably on a dedicated server. This mod was just never designed as a full feature chat solution.

There are a few around though ($). Try Dragonbyte:

Dragonbyte crashed the site. The chat is perfect as it is.

The beep solution must be simple. Just adding ASCII-code "7" before the message will be posted.

How do I change the default color from black to white. My site's background is black and I can't see anywhere where I can change the default color. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Anyone know if I can remove the white text font ? It doesn't actually say "white" anywhere in the "Colors available in drop-down menu" but it's there as a option in the little drop box when you click it to choose a color.

Not that it's really a big deal.

Awesome mod! I am looking to get this working on the portal page of vBadvanced and not on any other page. There were instructions on how to do it, which I have followed to the letter, however it still does not display. Some others mentioned it might have something to do with how vB changed the last couple of releases? Unfortunately, the person who made the instructions hasn't been online in months, so I'm hoping someone here can help?

So basically what I'm looking for is to have the Chatbox (only) on the vBadvanced home/portal page.

- vBulletin® Version 4.2.0
- vBadvanced CMPS v4.2.1

Thanks in advance!
