hmm. weird. Your code works for me - see picture. (of course without the graphics in the source code because the urls are different). But it works, the code is correct.

CMPS:
do you have a created html module?
have you created a new template and then insert your source code?
and the template (for example: adv_portal_vsa_chatbox) inserted into the module?
Module Wrapper Template set to use no? (see picture)

I could find an answer posted already so here's my question?

How would I move the chatbox from under the navbar to say the header, sidebar, vb cms, etc?

I couldn't find any .css for it in the style manager and can only find how to resize it. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Installed, like it and removed it. It seems every chatbox is having scrolling issues. Using Chrome and if a chat box gets a scroller because of too many text, it won't scroll down to the latest message. Even when you already scrolled down entirely, a new message won't show up as you'll have to scroll down again..

Whitey, use the "{vb:raw vsachatbox}" code in any template to customize it's appearance in a different position. Make sure you disable the auto-insert first (the option where you set it above the footer, below the forums, etc)

Sorry if already explained but i just find a fix in languages (not easy with other mods)


To fix date / hour bug


Go into OPTIONS -> VSA Chatbox

Find fields.

Date format (blank to disable)
Time format

Replace content
d-m ----> %d-%m
H:i ----> %H:%M

OK how would I implement that code in somewhere like the global 1 header advert spot?

Valter,
Nice mod, I appreciate being able to use it. Curious as to what if any improvements you have in store.
I'd like to see avatars added to chat line and admin tools in the chat front end.

Cheers,
helwoe

Presumably you have your permissions set incorrectly AdminCP>Settings>Options>Vsa Chatbox>Permissions.

I recently moved the chat box to the bottom of the page.

When I did this IE users started getting errors. They get 404 errors and page moved errors. IF they wait the page will refresh.

Suggestions?

All installed fine, have selected it to be in 1 forum only, which is fine. However it still displays on my main page.

Can I get rid of this, so the only place you can see the chatbox is on the forum I specify in the settings?

Sorry if this has been asked before.

Looking for an FAQ :/

Sup, im pretty new to VB (moved from SMF a week ago) code backend is so different

Anyway, i got the shoutox installed on FORUMHOME but when i access the forums from my domain the shoutbox sits there "loading...." and wont ever load

when i once reloaded the site it works flawlessly, but this bug is annoying like mad
prolly some ajax probs
and somehow the shoutbox causes HAVY serverload :P compared to others
