Cyb,

This is one great hack, congratulations.
I'd just like to second some previous comments that mentioned that the only thing this hack is lacking IMHO is a reporting feature.
Thanks,

That wont work.. The problem is that even if you remove all the color options, the drop down menu is still there and the only color shown in it is the default text color for the skin you're currently using. So, if the member is using a white skin and they use the color drop down menu selecting the first and only text color for that skin which is black, then the other members who use the dark skin can not read their posts in the chat box because the text is black.

Please see the bug report linked below for more details with screen shots. I think the best option in a future release would be the ability to disable the color drop down menu all together in the admin panel for those who don't want to use it.

Thanks for your consideration with this issue.

So some people were asking about how users could disable their chatbox based on user option. It's really simple, this is how I did it:




Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Where XX is your profile field, and YYY is the answer to your profile field. (you should make it Radio selection, with Yes and no.)

Personally, I would allow chatbox to be activated (appear) by default.

then you stick it in into whichever pages you want it to appear. (IE if you want it on forumhome, place below $navbar on FORUMHOME.

I prefer to put it on every pages, so I placed that code at the extreme bottom of Navbar template.

Finally, go to Cyb chatbox option in "Position on page" Make sure it is set to disabled, and Make sure "Show chatbox on" is blank.

Is there a way to create a 2nd chatbox that does not have the same content as the 1st?

Eg 1 for members and another for staff only?

Not possible with the current version.

I can not promise that such feature will be added in the future...
