The BBcodes are automatically parsed. Just limit the size and the type of BBcodes in AdminCP. To embed a MP3 BBcode, take a look at https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/show....php?p=2602256

You can see it in action at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPPw5NXOako

Hi,

I read several demands about how to change the default font color when typing a message, and didn't find any answer or else.

Does anybody know how to change this ? We have a dark skin and the background of the entermessage is dark too, and when typing in black (which is the default font color)... nobody is able to read it.

The very first color available in the drop-down menu is AntiqueWhite, which is... almost white so the problem seems to be elsewhere.

Thank you for your answers !

Hope I get the right code lines.
First short look into code shows - default color is value of style var "body_color" (to change in admincp / manage style vars) and only if unset it is the first color value in the available color list of the mod.

So if changing of option "Colors available in drop-down menu" shows no result change style var. And if that is not possible go to hook "VSa - ChatBox - IL" and edit the php code

Change

Solving reverse chatbox scroll bar issue

Hi,

Since we recently activated the reverse display for the chatbox, we experimented the scroll bar problem that occurs when someone posts a message in the chatbox (which seems to be a good usage of the mod ) or when the chatbox refreshes itself.

So I asked some help to a friend of mine (his nickname is Elzen, many thanks to him !!!) who has some JavaScript knowledges, and he found that solution :

1) load the vsa_chatbox template.

2) find these lines :


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


3) replace them with those five :


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

This modification allows the rest to work


4) in the same template, locate those lines :


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


5) replace them by those :


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


6) save and enjoy



Bonus : if you use some smileys which are too big to fit in the chatbox lines, that can cause those lines to be shifted a bit (or more). Elzen also provided a solution :

7) find the three lines showed in 5) :


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


8) replace them with these :


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


According to his demand, this patch is licensed under the WTFPL.

I love this chatbox, the only thing I miss is sound when someone shouts.
Is that possible to do?
