you have to have your forum chat activated first.
Admin panel>modules>chat box.

Activate = yes and and you will not need to select display because you are using the code for version 3

where is the tread to the tutorial you used,
I think there are a couple different ways,codes floating around here on this support forum.. It may be the one you have is only for phpbb3?


But you do have the forum chat activated right?

Oh actually if using phpbb2 i would just add the script/code to the over all header or footer template, But i have to see exactly what script you are using,

yeah i need the link to the tutorial where you got this to go over the directions on what it says, It's not the one i thought it was, css, i don't recall using any css in the version i have, but that's not really a big deal, however i still need to see what directions they have and who created the tutorial Smile
so post the link to the thread then may be i can try t make some sense out of it for you Smile

Oh have you added the css to the css sheet in your admin panel.
Because if you added in the widget, then that's why it is not showing, you will have to add the css to your css sheet.

Other then that please post the link to the thread where you got it from.
Thanx

well i got it working on my forum no problem.
However i do not like it.. lol

Anyway make sure you have your css set to

Deactivate the basic CSS = No
Optimize your CSS yes and hit save.

then just add your css to the css sheet, The directions are pretty easy and stright forward.

So you can see it on the bottom right hand side of my test forum here,



the only reason i don't like it is because it has to be in a widget, and i don't want widgets showing through the forum.. But since the forum i have it on is only a test forum not it don't matter Smile lol

All and all it seems to work fine though, so just go over all the instructions one more time and it should work fine for you.

If not then you will have to set up a temp admin account and send me the log in info so i can log in and set it up for you, But i would not do anything no different then what is instructed over there, So i think you ma have just missed a minor step for not hitting save somewhere or something?

Info added
Ok OK you can add the script to your homepage announcement as Rideem3 said above as well, so that's cool thumright

I only say to use widgets in order to prevent guests from seeing the chatbox button Wink.

You can put the HTML in annannouncement, templates, and etc. Wink

Right i kind of figured that, we sent the replies off the same time.
Sorry for the confusion bro... lol Razz
