You also will have to do the edits in the install.xml for index.php

The step I have for index_body.html is to find

Code: Select all

<!-- IF S_DISPLAY_ONLINE_LIST -->
and add before:

Code: Select all

<!-- INCLUDE chat_body.html -->
but that's for styles/prosilver/template/index_body.html, no other index_body.html steps
I tried putting it before and after, but it didn't show up on index anywhere
It works fine with /chat.php

If you put it before or after <!-- INCLUDE forumlist_body.html --> After that is done and saved you have to go to ACP > Styles > templates and select refresh on the style line you are working with.

What are you using to do your file edits?

Thanks, I never refreshed the template :D :D :D works fine now

How do I put it on a specific page? IE if I have a chat topic, can I put the chatbox there too?

jack and clhenry

On your address bar when you first go to your site it will be something like www.yoursite.com/index.php. Instead of saying index.php type in chat.php then hit enter. Tell me if that is what you want.

No, I want to know if I can put the shoutbox on other pages.
Example:
topic
post
post
post...
buttons and stuff
chatbox (or on top)

You can put the shout box in viewforum, viewtopic, but they would all be the same shout box.

Open: chat_body.html
find:

Code: Select all

.shouts {
In this small section I believe 2 lines down you will see height.
Change that to the size you want.
After each change you will have to go to ACP>STYLES>Template and select refresh on the line of the style you are working with.

Hope that helps?

I am trying to figure out how to delete old messages with this chat.
When I am signed is as the admin there is an option to delete individual posts, however if I empty the chat box completely and press refresh all of those message show up right back again.
If I sign in as another user, the posts reappear also.
I think we are dealing with javascript, specifically,

"javascript:void({chatrow.MESSAGE_ID})"

can someone please try to help me out with this. It would be really appreciated.

Thanks

I even looked here http://74.125.47.132/search?q=cache:y5x ... clnk&gl=us but I have waited a couple minutes and the messages STILL don't erase.

Thanks for any info! :idea:

I would love to have something similar to the IM system used on myspace and facebook. Perhaps this chat could be modified to fit in a DHTML/AJAX window. It wouldn't be Instant messageing but it could be a cool way to chat with all the current members who are currently logged into the forum. It would allow global access to all currently logged in members so that they may chat with each other. Basically the only difference between the current chat and this idea is that instead of going to the right page with the chat.html; chat.html would be available from anywhere on the site and when someone says something it would show up on a popup DHTML layer of it's own. This would greatly increase chat participation. It would allow the chat to be used from anywhere on the forum website while allowing people to keep browsing while they chat. starting chats would be so much fun and a great way to integrate the community.

here is a little closer.

BTW I think this is an EPIC IDEA!!!! let me know if this is something the respected creators of this mod would consider doing.
