after having this mod for over a year, and no problems, am now missing the message box area including the input box. This is the case for both the full chatbox and the mini shatbox that I have constantly open. I checked all the settings and can see nothing wrong there. Can someone tell me how to fix? Thanks

Never mind. I figured it out. The chat box was collapsed. Now I am wondering how the default got set to Collasped mode. Anyone have idea to change this option in vbulletin admin? Default was set to show it open at all time.

There is an "collapsed by default" option in product settings.

Question.

I have a Logician's Webtemplates Mod template with PHP code embedded in it from another mod and I would like to add the Cyb Chatbox in that custom template page as well.

The call to code is "$cybchatbox"

I'm willing to pay $25 via paypal gift if someone can send me the code to get this web template working with both included mods.

PM me if interested. Thanks a ton guys in advance for your help

I'm having trouble with the vbulletin censorship and this mod. When I have the censorship replacement include a bbcode:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

the chatbox doesn't display the color but instead just displays
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

for a curse word. (ignore spaces it's just to display on this post)

Can you help me fix this? Whenever I copy the
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and paste it into the chatbox it displays the red asterisk just fine. But it doesn't display if I type in a censored word.

Example of what I mean:

In the picture the censored word is replaced by bbcode but the bbcode does not display. However if I copy the text and paste it into the chatbox it displays the colored bbcode just fine.

When u are using the option to show newest messages at the bottom (reverse order) u cant see the previous messages by scrolling up becouse everytime the autorefresh refreshes the page the scrollbox goes down automaticly which doesnt happen when u are not using the reverse order. any idea how to fix this ?

same happens in the vb4 ver

If you set the CB to: Reverse message order in ChatBox (newest at bottom) the CB will load with the last message not at the bottom, however it will scroll down after it auto updates.

This is a great chatbox. It would be great if you could exclude certain styles from using this. I have an iPhone style and the chatbox doesn't load correctly. It seems to cause the entire page to refresh.
