I have smilies which are encapulated with < or > tags

for instance, a thumbs up is <ok> - this doesn't seem to work with the chat box, any ideas?

Also is there a way to show user avatars in this?

cant get the post_new.png and post_old.png to display in the chat box causing an alignment issue in chat.

.postbit .posthead .postdate.old, .postbitlegacy .posthead .postdate.old {
background:transparent url({vb:stylevar imgdir_statusicon}/post_old.png) no-repeat center {vb:stylevar left};

.postbit .posthead, .postbitlegacy .posthead {
background:transparent url({vb:stylevar imgdir_statusicon}/post_new.png) no-repeat center {vb:stylevar left};

and hte image directory for them is correct

IS there a way to change the background color? My site uses a custom background and because the chatbox is transparent its very hard to read. I've looked through the templates but cant find anything. And I cant find any of the css for it. Help!

Yes you set that up in the options for the mod. The developer has made a great options screen to allow and not allow usergrougs ids to see, or message the chatbox.
