1. I changed:

post_old.gif -> post_old.png
in Plugin > plugin manager > VSa - ChatBox - MN

2. I changed:
smilie.gif -> smilie.png
in the Template section

*I guess the newer vbulletin version uses png's instead of gif's? (most of it)
Thanks! VSA needs to update this soon

Moin...

Lade die Sprache unter Sprachen & Phrasen, Sprachen Herunterladen/Hochladen hoch und Übertreibe die Deutsche Sprache einfach...

Die XML ist aber NICHT Aktuell !!!
D.h. es wird nicht alles Übersetzt....

Well, thanks for the info anyway! Glad the old instructions are still helpful.

I have just upgraded my forum to VB 4.1.4 and it seems the chatbox is not working as it should. It seems to slow down the loading of the forum more than it did before to a point where the page just hangs at times

Font color

Do you guys know how to change the font color of the posted messages in the Chatbox? I got the dark theme and fonts are black so practically text is not readable. Any help would be greatly appreciate!

Is there a drawback if one changes the "Log-out user from ChatBox after X minutes of inactivity" to some bigger value, say to 60 minutes?

If you have a lot of users, that can put a big strain on your server resources. If you're on a shared server or one with limited resources, this can slow the responsiveness of your site to a crawl.
