Thank you for your time.
Just do exactly what he did for the archive page.

(Find code like this and modify as below.)

In the future it would be nice to be able to report messages people post. If not in the main box, perhaps in the chatbox archive? You could even select a spread of messages if they posted it over a couple messages.

go to vbulletin options > cyb-chatbox

find the field that says "index", should be labeled as:
Show ChatBox on (comma separated THIS_SCRIPT locations)
Blank to show on all pages (not recommended because of server load)
delete the word "index" and it will now be on every page.

How was solved the problem with the security token? I had this problem too and I had to uninstall this Chatbox, although it was very nice

*installed*

But it isn't working correctly. I'm still getting the security token error. I've upgraded to the gold 3.7.0 version -- I completely uninstalled and then reinstalled the chat box but I still get the error

Your submission could not be processed because a security token was missing or mismatched.

If this occurred unexpectedly, please inform the administrator and describe the action you performed before you received this error.

ETA: It works ok in Internet Explorer, but gives the security token error for *some* foxfire users (myself included)
