If I use index bottom it does not fit the theme.

Are there any manual edits I still need to do?
You may have a custom style there Mess if I'm looking in the right place.

Your header of your style starts out with a...

Code: Select all

		<div class="category-wrapper">
		<div class="category-header" style="">
If that is the correct style I looked at. mchat's header will have to be re-written like your style.
Anything you put in that style will have to be written to form to that style.

Thanks for your reply mate. :)

My website is the same as in my signature. And the style is default for guests.
Mchat has a style folder for canvas so I didn't realize I had to do other "hacks". If I change mchats header will still work on our other styles?

As far as I can see the Canvas style doesn't have the event index_body_markforums_before which mChat uses to display at the top.

Go to /ext/dmzx/mchat/styles/canvas/template/event, create an empty text file index_body_forumlist_body_before.html and add this code:

Code: Select all

<!-- IF MCHAT_INDEX and MCHAT_LOCATION --><!-- INCLUDE mchat_body.html --><!-- ENDIF --> 
Refresh your board cache.

I think mchat should deliver "user logout notification" just as it delivers "user login notification"

Yes, that is something reasonable to add but it won't happen anytime soon. I'm playing with the idea to move the posts & login notifications to a separate extension but I'm not sure yet if it's worth it. Once that is decided, the logout notification can be added. It won't happen in 2.0.0.

This is a job for another extension.

That worked, thanks mate.
Now I just need to match it with the style a little better. But I can figure that out myself when I get a little time. :)

Wait a few days for RC7 to be released. ;) It will allow you specify the pruning interval in the ACP. You will need to set it to 24 hours at midnight and set the number of messages to retain to 0.
