Installed it, works great. I'm making this available to my paid subscribers, I'm sure it'll be a good incentive!

Unless you exclude them, they can see it.

I understand #3. Can someone explain to me how to accomplish numbers 1 & 2?

To add to desired template (example FORUMHOME):
1. Add 'index' to THIS_SCRIPT locations (Product options)
2. Add 'FORUMHOME' to template names (Product options)
3. Open 'FORUMHOME' template and put "{vb:raw vsachatbox}" to desired line (for example after '<!-- /main -->') -> Save

My members love this chatbox, so first of all I'd like to say Thank you very much to the creators.

My question is this. Has anyone else seen large increases in bots and spiders as a result of adding this plugin. Right now on my who's online I'm showing about 300+ guests and bots as 'Viewing Chatbox Archive'. Trust me, this is way above normal.


It seems to happen about once a day. Out of nowhere tons of bots show up to view the chatbox archive. Its puzzling.

Let me guess. You didn't search this mod for "Viewing Chatbox Archive" before you posted?

Anyway, no real solution has been posted yet. Since I never see anyone viewing my archive I'm left to guess it may be I just have a more restrictive robots.txt file than you do.?

And you didn't check threads for previous versions of this chatbox

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?p=1866133

This hack worked on VSa's predecessor for vB3.x ("cyb chatbox"), should give you an idea on what to modify in this vB4 version.

You must be referring to "Add conditional to block unregistered and other usergroups from chatbox archive".

I
didn't have to hack the mod to stop search bots, so clearly it's not necessary. Which is good, because I want Guests to be able to see the chatbox and it's archive.

How can I get the ChatBox to appear on its own page within vBulletin? I don't want it on every page or even on the main page. I just want it on its own page.
