Is it possible to download them, first? after all, they are part of the forum's history...

thnx
There is no easy way to do this that I'm aware of. Worse, the box is inaccessible to mobile style and Tapatalk users.

But that is not a issue with the mod, the mobile style is coded with alot of hooks missing to make it lightweight, so many mods wont work on it, and the same thing for Tapatalk.

Oh I dunno about that. I understand the difficulty, but with ever increasing numbers of phone and tablet users I hope some sort of solution may be possible. Perhaps a separate URL or some sort of echo to what looks like a forum.

I don't know the answer, only the problem. Desktop users carry on conversations in the box and we have to constantly urge them to start threads since a) nothing is archived and b) mobile users can't see it.

I imagine if chat boxes were being invented just this week instead of in the era of desktops they would all include mobile capabilities.

You need to put this option:

- Format de la date (laisser vide pour désactiver) : %d/%m
- Format de l'heure : %H:%M

I've looked inside the forums as well as on here and google but for some reason my Regular members or other groups are unable to see the shout box. I can and so can the Moderators but that's it.

Is there a easy fix to this that I am clearly missing.

NVM, I take that back. Apparently it has to do with people trying to view it through their phones.

The info.txt file says:

"-View users active in ChatBox (available in CBFull and Archive)"

Where may I view who is actively logged onto the chatbox? For some reason I don't see it anywhere.

Thanks

Sounds like it may have been a groups permission setting in the app, ay?

Edit the vsa_chatbox_input template and find this bit of code:


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

And change it to this:

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