If you're on shared hosting then there has been ample warning that any chatbox hosted on your own site will at some point become too much of a load. You may get away with it for a while, but eventually someone may take notice.

You either need to opt for a hosted chatbox, or get a better server (VPS/dedicated), or configure as a shoutbox (logging people out quickly). On our shared site we've opted to go the shoutbox route.

Hi,

Can someone point me to where i can stop images from spreading outside the limits.

People are using img tags and not resizing the images.

It's in Settings>Options>vsa chatbox>"Banned BB Tags (comma separated, example: img, code)" - make sure you didn't remove img from that list. There is no easy way to resize images on the fly so your only real choice is to disallow them.

Thanks Videx but that is not an option.

Thought i may be able to control the page width of chat box as it breaks out past the forum.

If you read back a ways you may get other ideas. People have successfully put the box on separate pages and I dunno, maybe in iframes.

Not a bad idea for a

Feature Request: On-the-fly resizing of imgs to max x,y


That would have to be a heavy server load and I fear what would happen when people try to implement it on shared servers. Probably just mostly time out and not work.

Hi,

I hope you can help.
I see the Chatbox, but when I write something in it and press "enter" I am forwarded to a message complaining about a "missing security token".

where is that coming from?!

this is weird, the chatbox works if I open "ChatBox full", but if I use the lean ChatBox I get that Security Token message?!
