That tutorial will do as you say and provide the chatbox in every page.
If you don't want it as a popup then the HTML will just need some tiny edits.

here you go.
You can add this to your home page announcement , forums description,the over header template, or overall footer template.
Code:

<center><iframe frameborder="0" width=70% height=300 src=http://darkgaming.forumotion.com/chatbox/index.forum?  marginheight=2 marginwidth=2 scrolling=auto allowtransparency=yes name=Chatbox style="border:#505050 1px solid"></iframe></center>

fell free to change the border:#505050 1px solid to what you want,
And if you want to up the width, then just change where it says 70% to like 85% 100% may be too much and you dont want it under 70%

I can show you the edits to the HTML to make, if you don't want it as a pop up.

With the code above, you'll need to change the src to "/chatbox/index.forum"
rather than the actual chatbox from that other forum you posted Razz

Have you tried the HTML kirk provided. As it might satisfy your want just fine.

Use this though:
Code:

<center><iframe frameborder="0" width=70% height=300 src="/chatbox/index.forum"  marginheight=2 marginwidth=2 scrolling=auto allowtransparency=yes name=Chatbox style="border:#505050 1px solid"></iframe></center>

And it will show your chatbox.

Kirk, you are incredible, a genus. You are so much help to people with excellent answers my hat goes off to you. You're the best I've seen here.

I know this post is out of context, but I think it was worth mentioning and giving credit to Kirk. I always post in context as my record proves that. So give me a break folks.

Then you must have put two codes in two places.

This in an announcement or homepage message is ALL you need:
Code:

       
        <center><iframe frameborder="0" width=70% height=300 src="/chatbox/index.forum"  marginheight=2 marginwidth=2 scrolling=auto allowtransparency=yes name=Chatbox style="border:#505050 1px solid"></iframe></center>

Are you using the original chatbox or Chatbox V2.0?

I am not sure what code he is using now?
But if he wants to use the one i provided all he has to do is add his forum link to it/Whicth i think lgforum may have done it already?,

then go to chat box options and select not to show the chat, That's most likely why you are getting two chats, so you have to choose not to display in your chat options and the one from the code will only show Smile

then if you want it on every page, place it in one of the places i have explained above Smile

If you want it to appear on all pages, You dont want it in your home page message

You either want to put it in Home page announcement, forums main description, or the overall header or footer template..
