Thank you!
Only if you make your own hack for it. Valter said he would look into it at some point, but that was almost a year ago. Updating this mod doesn't seem to be a priority for him.

This happens to me when you are part of a usegroup that does not have permission to view the chatbox, for example banned users or unregistered/not logged in. Perhaps it's to do with you being logged out due to inactivity and becoming part of the not logged in usergroup?
Thank you for your response. I can confirm this as well, when I try to view the chatbox logged out it goes to the smilies page. BUT WHY THE SMILIES PAGE? How can I intercept this within the hack to make it go to a 404 page or something, lol.

Still looking for answers on how to make the "error" page go from smilies page to a different page. Anyone know how to specify which page the 404/no access page displays?

Hey,

How would you get this to display in a specific forum section only? For example, if I wanted it to display in only: forum -> uk -> business forum? Which has a forum ID of 8?

How can I set the default text colour? I have removed black from the colour menu but it is still the default and my site is dark, so unless users change the text colour manually it writes invisible text.

I could use either tbo but check them out and decide which ones best for you!

To add to desired template (example FORUMHOME):
1. Add 'index' to THIS_SCRIPT locations (Product options)
2. Add 'FORUMHOME' to template names (Product options)
3. Open 'FORUMHOME' template and put "{vb:raw vsachatbox}" to desired line (for example after '<!-- /main -->') -> Save

OK, I got #3 done but I don't understand 1 & 2. When I add 'index' to that I get a php error mainly because I do not know how to write the code. And #2 I got no idea.

Never mind I did not have to do one and two its working great! Thanks a bunch!

--------------- Added 22 Dec 2010 at 12:10 ---------------

Oooooooops, slight problem! Shoutbox is at the top and bottom of the forum how do I get rid of the bottom one?

--------------- Added 22 Dec 2010 at 12:16 ---------------

If I disable it it goes to the bottom. I need it at the top and remove the bottom one but how?
