First of all: THX a lot for this very nice Addon. Really great.

Unfortunately it seems not to work proper on IE6+7, as for Firefox it runs very nicely.

So, need urgent help to fix the IE display prob as to be seen in the attachment.

Since this is not solved, I cannot use the ChatBox

Best,

adusei

I installed this a few days ago, and as far as I knew it's been working flawlessly, with one exception... At least once each night, new posts made in chat show up in the incorrect order. It's as if the timestamps are incorrect. I just experienced it for the first time a moment ago. Any ideas?

Just wondering, I installed this and its working fine, but a couple of users have said they can't see any smileys in the box. What's strange is that they're both using different browsers, have both cleared their cache etc, so is there anything else that could be causing the problem?

Thanks,

Mike.

Howdy and THANK YOU for an excellent program! (Marked installed)

Feature request if it's not too much trouble - We have different classes of users on our site, assigned different usergroups, as many sites do. Would it be possible to assign either a text, or a color change to the different usergroups?

I.E. New users names are green, senior users names are black, moderators are blue, etc?

Thank you!

Are you using vBA or a custom style? I had the same problem and it was due to the custom replacement variables being used in my style, combined with vBA. Basically, I had to go into the vBA setup again (the installer, you can rerun it) and select the images rebuild. It'll show you what paths are wrong. Then you manually edit those to point to the smilies. The easiest way to find out this was the problem is that if you looked at the archive, the smilies appeared, but not in the main chat box.

Anyway, hope that helps, I got zero support for the problem here, but finally figured it out myself.

Good chatbox, the main thing is the server load prob. If you leave it at 10 it eats up server load, if you change it to above 10, then the chats will not update often, and the chatbox won't be as effective. A idle feature would be great, but thanks for this chatbox, it is the best on vBulletin.
