I'm having the same problem as playerfr. Can you tell me what CSS the shoutbox grabs so I can edit it?

Thanks. :)
I'd recommend you guys def grab not only Firefox if you have't, but also firebug add-on...

you can right click any element, and it gives you a inspect element option, when clicked will take you in a window below, right to the actual html markup, and also show you all the css that interacts with it...

Will help you quickly identify the css elements you need to modify.

I am also using firefox for years , but did not know about firebug, let me install it whne i will be back home :D thanks for the tip :)

Edit: WOW! I can see this coming in handy! :o Thank you!
Yup! I'd be miserable without it! Not only to navigate the CSS, but these templates!

A great mod almost perfect! I prefer this one than other ajax chat mods here. The only thing I think not so elegant is the "post message" manner. If I'm a guest , due to unseen "post message" line, I had no idea how to take part in the chat. If I'm a registered user, the "post message" line was a little glared, and it always exists even if I don't need to post new messages.

As a suggestion, I would like the "post message" line to be shown only at the time I needed it. I list the details of improvement in my opinion below:

1. Remove the "post message" line. (in fact be moved to the bottom)
2. Make the page number (navigation) line always visible.
3. Add a "POSTMESSAGE" (imitate POSTREPLY) link (or button) to the left of the page number line. (figure 1)
Image
4. If a guest click the "POSTMESSAGE" link, display a "need to login" infomation.
5. If a registered user click The "POSTMESSAGE" link, now reveal the "post message" line on bottom of the shout box. (figure 2)

Thank you in advance for your regarding my idea.

No, that isnt going to change. Also, the page navigation is already always been displayed when needed.

Ok I was able to Chaneg colors thanks to firebug :) Also I have a problem. The corners of the box are round in Firefox but straight in IE any version tsted with 5.5, 6 and 7. An otehr bug in IE there is no Scrollbar verticall and it keep making the box biger. In Firefox after 5 messages I haev scrollbar instead of making the box bigger. ANy way to do smae or limit it to less number of message per page in IE ?

Hi paul, the main idea I would say is I wish the "post message" line not to be shown if the users do not need to post new messages. Thank you for your respondence.

Hey, great shoutbox. One of the best I've ever seen/used. I only have one problem. I think people previously said this but I couldn't be hassled to look through 29 pages. Sorry...

Anyway, can I change it from showing 10 shouts per page to something a little smaller so the shoutbox doesn't seem so big.

Edit:
Nevermind I found it, Thanks.


Second Edit:

How can I remove the image and URL buttons. First off, I don't feel there's a need to post images in the shoutbox nor links unless it's a text one.

There's a screen shot.
The box said 'You need Windows XP or better' .... so I installed linux.

thank's paul for your mod! I want give my little contribution:
translation in Italian

Code: Select all

$lang = array_merge($lang, array(
	'missing_div' => 'Il div della shoutbox non può essere trovato.',
	'loading' => 'Caricamento',
	'post_message' => 'Invia messaggio',
	'sending' => 'Messaggio in invio.',
	'message_empty' => 'Il messaggio è vuoto.',
	'invalid_xml' => 'L\\\'xml non è valido: tr/td senza tabella',
	'invalid_el' => 'Elemento non valido: ',
	'xml_er' => 'errore XML.',
	'no_message' => 'Non ci sono messaggi.',
	'no_ajax' => 'No ajax',
	'js_err' => 'C\\\'è stato un errore di JavaScript. \nError:',
	'line' => 'Riga',
	'file' => 'File',
	'flood_error' => 'Errore: intervallo di flood',
	'posted' => 'Messaggio inviato.',
	
	//Added in 0.0.3
	'no_quote' => 'Non usare i seguenti bbcodes: lista, quote e code.',
	'smilies' => 'Faccine', 
	'del_shout' => 'Sei sicuro di voler cancellare questo messaggio?',
	'no_shout_id' => 'Nessun id per questo messaggio.',
	'msg_del_done' => 'Messaggio cancellato',
	
	'SHOUTBOX'		=> 'Shoutbox',
));
?>
Can I ask you something:
1) it's possible to give the possibility to can call someone with a sound? also just a sound that can be listened by all users when someone push a button or a pop-up windows without refresh page, so it's possible to understand soon that someone is online and want speack!
2) how it's possible to do work all installated bbcodes (not only default bbcodes), for exemple I'd see fonts on shoutbox! ...and how I can eliminate the limitations of list, quote and code bbcodes?
3) there is the possibility to show all smiles and not only those present on posting phase?

thank's!

1. Would require major javascript changes. Try it yourself by editing ajax.php.
2. It will take up a lot of space, but you can manage it by editing ajax.php
3. Edit the query in ajax.php :)

Hello Paul,

i just did the install.xml and prosilver.xml instructions, but simply did not create any effect.

It's like i did nothing. :cry:

I'm testing on RC4

Thank You anyway.
