Vertical direction of the NAME of shoutbox - Ajax Shoutbox

Vertical direction of the NAME of shoutbox

by Lech-u » Tue Sep 12, 2017 5:43 am

My name is Lech-u. I am an admin in my forum (www.fawa.pl). On my forum I have installed Ajax Shoutbox. My forum is working on phpbb in 3.2.1 version.



If you have a few seconds for me please look at my forum and check how Ajax Shoutbox looks like.

The problem is that the name of Shoutbox showed on my forum is in vertical direction (not horizontal as other names).

Do you have any solution how to solve this problem?

I have the same problem. Any solution? See my shoutbox at the bottom. It also goes vertical and wastes space.

Your shoutbox isn't viewable to guests.

Ok I set the permissions so that guests can view the shoutbox at the bottom. Do you see it now?

It is due to you using the 3.1 files on a 3.2 forum. Basically, you have this within the shoutbox html file

Code: Select all

<dl class="icon">
when it should be

Code: Select all

<dl class="row-item">

Ok I got it to work correctly now. The "Shoutbox" is now horizontal. Whew. Thanks.

Btw, how did you get that screen shot of my forum with the correct alignment before I even fixed it? Wow. Did you do some magic? lol

Also, how do you change the font size of the shoutbox chat text? It looks kind of small.

Also, how big does the shoutbox grow before it starts scrolling inside of it?

Thanks for the beer or dog biscuit as the case may be.
