not sure if I'll get in trouble for doing this but here is copy of the mod with the links for the smilies, post_new, and post_old fixed so you don't have to resave and upload gif files.

Just import this and over write the old one.

Any ideas how to fix it?

Well this work for my Hosting plan

Okay I already have it installed and really like this chatbox but I have a little concern to ask about this.

My host has this rule

8.) CHAT ROOMS
We do not allow YOU to install YOUR own chat rooms within a shared hosting account, without approving it with ATBHost. This includes, but not limited to, chat applications written in PHP, Perl, CGI, Python, Ruby, etc. Any web application that provides 'real-time' chat is also not permitted. Most chat rooms tend to be large system hogs and we cannot allow it as an account option. However, web based forums such as vBulletin, phpBB or similar forum scripts are acceptable.

Does this ChatBox/Shoutbox break this rule and make it to where I couldn't use it. For the most part I do believe its okay but my host is weird and the guy I talked to seems like I'm breaking the rule so I figured I would ask here.

Can Someone get back with me please and thank you.

This mod can also be configured as a shoutbox, and should be on a shared server. Basically this means setting a low timeout for everyone to keep them from hanging out.

If you really want a chatbox on shared hosting, just use one of the other ones that hosts it off-site (e.g. Addonchat).

Okay thank you for responding. So since i don't want to go to off site how would I configure this one as a shoutbox then.

Great stuff venom, I've been google-ing for a fix with this all day. Cheers.

Just noticed that the chat room users list in the bottom left of the screen is still missing though!

I already told you what to do. Look in the options section "Auto-refresh & Status" and adjust those settings. Mine is set to an auto-refresh interval of 30 seconds, a-r disabled for guests, and logout in 5 minutes.

You may also want to change the name to clarify it's no longer a chatbox.

Cheers to the OP, looks a nice Shoutbox.

Hi Valter,
any chance you could transform your chatbox in a way so it works with the original vb mobile style?

Surely the whole point of a mobile style is that is it light in design/looks and thus have quick load times...

Adding a chat box to the mobile style would go against all of this.
