The color pallete doesn't show in Opera (in the Usergroup Manager nor UserCp and Chatbox). It opens a blank combo, but when we select a "color", the tags are inserted correctly.

Oh what you mean is adding a prompt in the text field that would disappear upon click on the input field to warn them that they shoud input text in that field ?

Yes but how is it working ? Does the page reload upon quick reply or do you have the please wait and then message is added without page reload ?

Oh really ? Seems like I have used a property which is not handled by opera

I must admit I haven't tested the chatbox with opera but only with IE and FF on my computer + Safari on my Mac.

I'll have a look at it then with other bugs.

Look at the help in the chatbox once you have installed the ban command, it's well explained.

That's strange I did test it that's strange. Color palette was working fine.

Do you have an old version of firefox or are you running the latest one ?

Hello, great work on the new chatbox! I have 2 things I'd like to bring up. First, some people have reported being randomly booted for inactivity in approx 2 mins, when the setting is 8 mins. (firefox and IE) it's not a consistent though...
Also, I see a few questions about something similar, but not an answer- the times are off... It seems to be set to eastern time, no matter what we have our profiles set to.

Thanks!

Really ? I had tested the inactivity and it was working. Could you ask your users to test a bit more to see if it's something that is repetitive or not ?

About time, look at the bug list this one is listed

Yes I can do the command, when, perhaps this weekend but not sure.

About the ajax, the fact that the page reload means that the quick reply is not ajax powered (thus disabled by the option the vb staff stated you).

So it seems that they are no clean solution to make accents works

Had you tried with other chatboxes, did you encountered the same problem ?

About the text in the input field, I add it to the todo list.

Thumbs up

Thank you for your support, works great now.

One suggestion: Make chatbox english by default after install and the languages in UTF-8 if possible.
