Thanks a lot for your help!
I posted this on the old mchat area ( thread )


****As for the copy right moving.*****


go to your mchat_body.html ( in your style/template folder )

look for

Code: Select all

</div>
</div>
</form>
add before

Code: Select all

<!-- IF not MCHAT_READ_MODE --> &bull {L_MCHAT_COPYRIGHT}<!-- ENDIF -->

Then Look for

Code: Select all

<!-- IF not MCHAT_READ_MODE -->
<div style="text-align:center;">{L_MCHAT_COPYRIGHT}</div>
</div>
<span class="corners-bottom"><span></span></span></div>
</div>
<!-- ENDIF -->
replace

Code: Select all

<!-- IF not MCHAT_READ_MODE -->
with

Code: Select all

<!-- IF MCHAT_ARCHIVE_MODE -->
your done.

If It's not a problem, Is there any chance of see this on future versions of Mchat.

To me and others. Space is hard to come by.

Would be better if Auto refresh, Sound option, and Copyright all on the same line.

The Copy right takes a whole line. I think that is why others are moving or deleting it. because on the space it takes up. Not because of the lack of respect. You guy deserve it. For the time, put into it.

I wouldn't agree to that. Copyright notice has nothing to do with Auto Refresh and Sound option. IMO, it seems out of place that copyright be in the same line with MOD features.
If it's me, I would rather ask the author if I can move it on the footer together with the phpbb copyright but at the moment it doesn't bother me at all. I will let it stay and hope it will stay that way :)

This is how I did mine...

To move the buttons next to the text box

Open styles/template/mchat_body.php

Find:

Code: Select all

<input type="text" tabindex="1" name="message" class="mChatText" id="mChatMessage" /><br />
Replace with:

Code: Select all

<input type="text" tabindex="1" name="message" class="mChatText" id="mChatMessage" />
To move the copyright link next to the sound check box

Open style/template/mchat_body.php

Find:

Code: Select all

{MCHAT_REFRESH_HTML} &bull; <label for="mChatUseSound">{L_MCHAT_USESOUND} <input type="checkbox" id="mChatUseSound" checked="checked" /></label>
Replace with:

Code: Select all

{MCHAT_REFRESH_HTML} &bull; <label for="mChatUseSound">{L_MCHAT_USESOUND} <input type="checkbox" id="mChatUseSound" checked="checked" /></label>{L_MCHAT_COPYRIGHT}
Find and delete:

Code: Select all

<div style="text-align:center;">{L_MCHAT_COPYRIGHT}</div>
Hope that helps. Dont forget to refresh your template. :)

Looks like JonM_RTL beat me to it. LoL There were a few posts while I was making mine. Either way it will work and yes, I moved mine to reduce space. Seemed to take up alot of space with everything on all them separate lines.

Deleting this line of code . Deletes the copyright on the Archive page.

Use my edit , to keep the copyright on the archive.

I found that changing just the one IF tag messed up the style do to it removing the DIV tag from the index and then messing up the archive page having it there so here is what I ended up with to make it all work and keep the copyright on all the pages that I can see. On my site anyways.

Open mchat_body.php

Find:

Code: Select all

{MCHAT_REFRESH_HTML} &bull; <label for="mChatUseSound">{L_MCHAT_USESOUND} <input type="checkbox" id="mChatUseSound" checked="checked" /></label>
Replace with:

Code: Select all

{MCHAT_REFRESH_HTML} &bull; <label for="mChatUseSound">{L_MCHAT_USESOUND} <input type="checkbox" id="mChatUseSound" checked="checked" /></label>{L_MCHAT_COPYRIGHT}
Find:

Code: Select all

<!-- IF not MCHAT_READ_MODE -->
<div style="text-align:center;">{L_MCHAT_COPYRIGHT}</div>
</div>
<span class="corners-bottom"><span></span></span></div>
</div>
<!-- ENDIF -->
Replace with:

Code: Select all

<!-- IF not MCHAT_READ_MODE -->
</div>
<span class="corners-bottom"><span></span></span></div>
</div>
<!-- ENDIF -->
<!-- IF MCHAT_ARCHIVE_MODE -->
<div style="text-align:center;">{L_MCHAT_COPYRIGHT}</div>
<!-- ENDIF -->
:D

Is there any way to make the newer messages appearing form the bottom pushing the older messages upwards?

May I ask how many additional queries does this mod add to the index page?

Thanks!
