Please please please mod this for 4.0... It's so freaking awesome, and the chats that they currently have for 4.0 suck.

Actually, please just mod all your mods for 4.0. I miss having them.

Suggestion:

With the "onkeyup" the character limit can be bypassed if the user does not lift the key when submitting the message (try holding the key down while submitting).

In addition to "onkeyup" in the textarea add "onkeypress" like below:


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

It basically is a duplicate of the "onkeyup" but using "onkeypress".

Now when users try to bypass the character limit it'll allow just one more character and you can't type anymore.

For pasting:

Users can still bypass the character limit if they paste. You can set it where users can paste but disallow additional/repeated pasted messages by:


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

Still, if the text is extremely long users will still be able to bypass the character limit. So to prevent pasting all together you can add into textarea:


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

That was my workaround. If there's a better solution please post it in this thread.

I just tested all those exploits and nothing happened. I've known about the pasting thing, but it never flooded the chatbox, it just allowed you to paste messages...

Problem with Date/Time post!!

I have this Hack/Mod installed and the time/date was not showed right. So i change the format for date / time. Now this hack works fine but i have a problem with another of your hacks CYB.

The problem is with the CYB- AUTO BIRTHDAY GREETER.

When the system write a post for a birthday the date is in wrong format.
The post look like this:

Today %25-%b-%2009 is celebrating one of our friends.

All this happend when i have to change in cyb-chatbox the date format, etc because the correct hour and date was not showed in that chat, When i change that, i get this error here.
You can help me?

Thanks in advance!

PD: I have vbulletin 3.8.x
