how can the smileybox be adjusted?

Is it in the template or in the VSA Code?

We have made categories for the smileys but they will not be shown in the smileybox.
An the clipping of the smileys is a bit disturbing. Any ideas how we can fix this ?

Thanks a lot, and sorry for my bad enlish

Would it be to annoying for me to keep asking for help with my previous posts pertaining to changing the background color in the chatbox?

Lynne if you should just happen to see this post, what would be your suggestion for where to look in the code to do as I'm trying to do?

Probably so, since this has been answered about as well as it's going to be already. However, it's well buried by now so if you figure it out please repost the instructions in simple form.

I have made it *very* wide, that worked. Altering CSS didn't work, i couldnt find the css properties and I got tired of searching.

These are my settings:

smileys per row: 13 (i know this is very wide)
Smileys to show on startup: 26
Total smilies available (0 to disable smiliebox, 1 to use all smilies): 39
Smilie clipping in smiliebox (in pixels): 50

This looks OK in default style as well as my modified style.

Fail moment!

I wanted to change the title of the Chatbox to something other than "Chatbox"

I replaced all instances of "Chatbox" in the xml file with my own title then imported with overwrite.

Now it's giving me the following error on every page and the sidebar has disappeared:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/mysite/public_html/forum/global.php(29) : eval()'d code on line 99

I've tried undoing the changes and reimporting but still the same error.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Stop playing with the xml. Hopefully you can get back to a starting point by importing (with overwrite) a clean copy (not by 'undoing the changes' and editing yet more!).

Then you only need to read the thread to have all questions answered.

I dunno then. My global.php from vb405 only has 51 lines in it, nowhere near 99.

It may be a good time for you to upgrade to 406. I hope all your backups are current.
