A couple of my users have been having the issue with Chrome not scrolling properly. It only seems to be an issue with the input box and new messages at the bottom. If I put the input box and new messages at the top, it seems to fix the issue.

They are using Chrome Version 27.0.1453.xxx

not sure if this has been mentioned before but;
I have cloudflare configured, and I edited the class_core.php file to make the vbulletin see the real IP. Everything is reporting the real IP, except the chatbox.
Is it ignoring the class_core.php instructions or something?

ps, I'm on shared hosting

I'm not sure if the problem is with this mod or if its with the New post on high score mod but when an arcade game highscore is posted in the chatbox for some reason it shows that the post came from another member and not the admin. Ive looked and found no place that that would be changed in the admin panel.

Hi. I have the same question. Is this possible?

Thanks in advance.

I've tried changing the background colour of the chatbox, in Style Manager > "Your Style" > StyleVars > blockrow_background, but no matter which colour I choose, it's still white. Anyone able to help?

Ok sorry if this is a remedial question but I'm trying to add the chat box to the "new posts" page of my forum, but I cannot seem to locate the correct template for "new posts" to add it. I keep searching the templates but am having no luck. thanks for any help

I wouldn't be surprised if you couldn't since "new posts" isn't actually a page; it's search results.

This might seem like a weird question...

But is it possible to get 2 different chatboxes going? What I have is two leagues in my forum, I have one forum running the chat. I would love to have another separate chat running in the other forum.

Not an uncommon question at all. I have seen some success in the past but you'll have to do some thread digging to find it.

An alternative may be a more rounded chatbox like Dragonbyte? Does it do something like that out of the box I wonder?

That was addressed a few pages back.

No, there hasn't been a way to display in the WGO. The only edit is to have the same "active users" box that appears on the full page with the chat. For such a good mod, would have been great to have it in the WGO.
