Do you have modified chatbox templates ?
Have you checked that you uploaded all files correctly ?

Thanks you
Seems like you had an error in chatbox install. Would recommand you to uninstall and install it again.

Regarding bbcodes, have you uploaded the images directory to your style misc image directoy ?

I am wanting to use image names in replacement of the current names or html markup.
I can do this forum wide using the replacement variable.
Only problem is the chatroom does not display them correctly.
Its able to show them in the online bit breifly until it refreshes then it just picks up the original name again and not the replacement variable like below.



Also when you look through the Archives of the chatroom the image names appear ok. It seems its only in the actual live chat area its not appearing?



I would really like to be able to have this work.
