Just trying it again, but I'm having the same problem with not being able to write any message. (Both on my local test site, and the live Forum).

Odd !

Then all of a sudden it starts working !

The only difference is a change of colour - but I refuse to believe that's the answer.

Thanks again.......

Hi

I have a problem with this mod. Time is not displayed correctly. It is shown like this [d-m, H:i] with no numbers just the format with letters as I mentioned. How can I fix this?

Thank you

In Admins panel... Try this

Settings -> Options -> VSa - ChatBox, and in the options put,
"Date format (blank to disable)"-> %d-%m-%y or %d-%m (not show year)
"Time format"-> %H:%M

How do you make this show up on the CMS page?

I have it working great on the forums page and the activity stream but I can't seem to make it work on the content.php page.

Did you try this?
Settings: VSa - ChatBox ->
Show ChatBox on pages (comma separated THIS_SCRIPT locations)
Blank to show on all pages (not recommended because of server load)


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

or blank to show to all pages.
probably you tried it

Yes, I have mine set to.... "index,content,activity". It works on the Activity stream and forum page but not on the CMS content page.

I wonder if the setting... "Show ChatBox in templates (comma separated template names)" could help me? Currently I have it set just to... "FORUMHOME". Is there a template I could put in there to make it show on the CMS?

Just discovered there's a particular User Group that can only view the Chat - not post . Anyone else experienced this - Nothing obvious can be gleaned from settings , either UserGroup or Chat .

warmly

Geoff

The chat box has stopped working on my forum and is logged off. Nothing on the forum has been updated or changed, so I don't know what has happened. When I click on any of the options on the chatbox it takes me to a forbidden page.

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /misc.php on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

All help appreciated.

Anybody know why when loading the page for the first time, the chatbox starts in the middle instead of the very bottom? In 10 seconds after it autorefreshes it goes back to the bottom.

Translated with Google Translate (I can not speak English):

My problem is the following:
stands:
Turned message sequence in the chatbox (newest below) to NO, you can read the chat history. If it is YES, it will be updated every 5 seconds and you will be on the last post. Reading is thus not possible here.
What - or what file - can I change, so that it also works normally here?

Thank you and best regards:
Tammy


Originaltext auf Deutsch falls googel wieder Mist übersetzt hat:
Mit Google Translate übersetzt (ich kann kein Englisch):

Mein Problem ist folgendes:
steht:
Umgedrehte Nachrichtenreihenfolge in der ChatBox (neuste unten) auf NEIN, kann man den Chatverlauf lesen. Steht es auf JA, wird alle 5 Sekunden aktualisiert und man ist beim letzten Beitrag. Ein Lesen ist somit hier nicht möglich.
Was - oder welche Datei - kann ich ändern, damit es auch hier normal funktioniert?

Danke und liebe Grüsse:
Tammy
