Add "%" before each format parameter.

This is required for some languages, don't know why...

Go to hack settings and change m-d-y to %m-%d-%y, and H:i to %H-%i.

Thanks for this, replaced my old chatbox in a second with the easy install!

But I've got a small question: In future versions, will we be able to replace the "Ask your questions in the forums. The ChatBox is for small talk." text to whatever we wish?

Text formatting options (color, weight, style, decoration,...)?? I only see bold, italic and underline? Can we not change the actual font?

How server intensive is this? All other chatboxes I've looked up would kill my server. Is this on par or better than others?

Is there anyway to get a "Shout/Submit" Button?

I have users who sometimes login from PS3's and other such devices and apparently are having trouble shouting in the shoutbox due to the lack of an "enter" key on the device they are using.
