mChat no scroll bar NEED HELP PLZ!

by ogchad » Mon Jan 14, 2013 9:41 pm

I installed the mchat shoutbox and the only problem is there is no scroll bar, the text in the shoutbox does just keeps going and going and going, no scroll bar appears to hide the old messages.


I have read many of the posts on this site, dealing with the stylesheets, and mine are setup properly, but it will still not work.

mChat is not using the mchat.css stylesheet, i believe this is the problem, it is trying to read from the stylesheet.css that is in my template folder, and i have mchat included in this template and will post code below, but it still does not fix it.

The template im using is Mozilla.

forums/styles/mozilla/theme/stylesheet.css CODE BELOW

Code: Select all

/*  phpBB 3.0 Style Sheet
Style name:   mozilla
Based on style:   proSilver (this is the default phpBB 3 style)

Ensure the mchat.css file is in the correct directory of the style and ensure you have refreshed the styles theme in the ACP as well as CTRL + F5 your browsers cache.

If I'm posting in wrong place or if posting in an old topic is disallowed, I apologise, I just registered here. I have the same problem, scroll bar doesn't appear and messages just keep going down, displaying over things below the mini chat. The overflow messages fix somewhat after refreshing, but it still doesn't allow to scroll. Everything works fine with prosilver style (scroll boxes, separating lines between messages, correct font-size). It also works fine when I use preview on my custom style from the styles section in admin panel (although the MC background is white there). There is also an issue with title of the chat displaying as { MCHAT_TITLE } (this happens in both styles).

I probably messed something up as I basically did everything for the first time (importing existing style, installing mods) and I had to install the chat twice, because first time I coudn't type or send anything (it was non-responsive). If anyone could at least point me in the right direction, I'd be grateful.

PS There is also another issue not connected to MC, the title of the topic in the given forum isn't displaying on the main page near author and date.

And here's the forum: http://darlton.prv.pl/index.php

edit: It seems I managed to sort the issues out, even though MC does have a white background now. Sorry for the trouble. However if someone has any tips/comments, I'd appreciate a PM or something. Cheers.
