But of course we can't design websites around our own eyes. I just use ctrl+middle mouse wheel to zoom on text when I need to, including this shoutbox.

Not saying that at all.. Just made an inquiry to find out if anyone knows where the css is for this alteration. But never mind, there is a way to do it...

And in future, if you are willing to help someone with a small issue, then do it in a manner that is less arrogant.

Thanks for your feedback...

I've got a new request/query:
I want guests (non-logged in/no account) to view the chatbox that I've placed in my template, however I don't want guests to have access to the archive.

Is there any way I can mod the code to do this? (I'm not particularly good at this)

Would love this.
Or channels. 1 public and 1 user group permitted.
Those alone would make this the #1 chatbox for vbulletin IMO.
This chatbox is lightweight and i love it!
Sadly it not having public and private prevent me from using it.
Ohhhhhhhhhhh how i wish though.....

It works. 4.2.1

There is a small issue, minor if you like but still relevant..

Look at the picture



Here we have 2 users chatting.. There is a confusing space between the users.
There is no definition to who said what...
This occurs after a longer than usual post is made.

It looks normal to me. I see no "confusing" spaces, and I plainly see who said what.

So, please tell me did Squire_BankS say ***t! It does work........
Not fully tested yet and there are certain usergroups that can't see it, etc


Or was it MightyMoiety that said:

server requirements I think but I need to consult, etc............................


And then followed up with:
It does seem to work....

What do you think?

Oh okay now I see - yours isn't justifying all the way to the left. I dunno, mine is. I have no idea why yours wouldn't. Custom skin?

Yes that would be confusing for any person other than the two posting to read, but surly the people "in the conversation" would know what they did, or din't say, right? Still, it isn't supposed to display that way and needs to be address. I don't use this hack (anymore) but I will look at it to see if I can find something to solve this issue

Which hack did you switch to? Or did you just stop with chat altogether?
