Does NOT work for me, layout seems to be good, however I do not see a submit button. I do not want a submit button but when typing a msg and click <ENTER> to end the msg, the msg is not displayed but the cursor will go down one row in the msg-entry field. So I can not get the msg displayed in the chatbox area. {I'm using vbulletin 3.7.3 na cyb chatbox 2.3}

Could you please post, complete (changed) xml?

I know in Chatbox Full you can empty the entire chatbox. I liked to have a command (/prune) so that the chatbox will be empty (truncate database). Finally I edited the xml. I added lines 887-908 and 1936

Having an option to "reverse" the display order of the archive would be a nice addition to this very cool mod. It's kinda hard reading going up...

Voted! Cyb-Chatbox rocks!

I have been using Cyb-Chatbox on my site and it works great for me. hats off. thank u

I wanted to request if somebody could integrate post count with chatbox so that whatever a user says in the chatbox increments his / her post count and if the chat is deleted from the archive it should reduce the post count.

I would be highly obliged if you could help me with this.

Thank you in advance!!!!!!

I wouldn't recommend doing this. First, it encourages spamming and it will reduce the amount of posts you will get in the forums.
