Chatbox problem

Post by Zerotheheroe on April 2nd 2012, 10:20 pm

Sorry for posting 10000 topics and I thank you for your continued help.

My forum, http://www.clancaos.net/forum has a chatbox

The shading is black, but the area where it says "You are disconnected" is grey.

Can I make the whole thing grey?

Also,

My widgets are higher than the chatbox and forum.
Can I even them out with a CSS code?

What chat box are you using? the new version or the forums default one?
Because if it's the default i have no way of seeing it thus will not know if i can provide the proper css for it.

If it the new updated chat that you had to create a widget for, then change the permissions the widget to guest so i can take a look.

info added

I may have a way i can see test it, but will have to find the old chat box code first.
oops

I've found out how to change the color.

Is there a CSS to make the widget's the same height as the chatbox?

I'll unlock the forum so you can take a look

i cant see anything you will need to provide a screen shot.
I dont know what you mean by having any widgets the same size as the chat, but i do not know what size you chat it either.

Please provide a screen shot of what you mean.
Also your using punbb. What is the link to the skin you have so i can install it to my test forum and see whats what that way.

Do you mean you want the chat box lined up even with the top of the widget widget?
Because there is no way you going to get the widget the same exact size as the chat box without it pushing everything off to the side (making the page offset)
that will not have a very nice appearance.

Like i said provide the link to the skin so i can install it on my test forum.
They only way i can be sure is to test everything and see whats what.

Yes. I want the top of the widget to be at the same level as my chatbox.

I just want to lower the widgets a little bit to be the same height.

yeah well, it's either raising the chat or lowering the widget,
But i will need the link to the skin, I have to install the to know how it has to be done.

i am not sure try this, Not sure if it will work or not, That's why i need to install the skin

Code:

th {
    background-color: #000000;
    background-image: url("http://hitskin.com/themes/18/13/20/i_back_title.png");
    color: #FFFFFF;
    font-size: 11px;
    font-weight: 700;
    height: 29px;
    padding: 2px 3px;
}
td.cat, td.catBottom, td.catHead, td.catLeft, td.catRight, td.catSides {
    background-color: #000000;
    background-image: url("http://hitskin.com/themes/18/13/20/i_back_catg.png");
    border: medium solid #0D0D0D;
    height: 29px;
}
td.cat, td.catBottom, td.catHead {
    border-width: 0;
    height: 29px;
}


 

Once again if you have the whole skin css in your sheet already, then just find that section and change heights: 29px; or 28, the first one was 25, so i think thats what was doing it.. But cant be sure.

you are in the portal, because widgets only show on one side.


Drag the chat all the way top center over the widgets,
Or to center in between the widgets,

I dont think it's a css issue, when i imported the skin to phpbb3 it did not even install any css, Odd?

I'm not using the portal for the home page.... you can use widget management and apply them on the sides of the main forum also.

yeah beats me i cant seem to get anything to work with it?
Not sure what i am doing wrong but dont want to work Sad

INFO ADDED

Ok lets go old school trick? LOL! guitar

go to your chat settings and select do not display and hit save.
keep it activated just select do not display.

then go to

Admin panel>display>Homepage>Generalities

past this code and hit save.. no need to create a title for it.

Code:
<iframe frameborder=0 width=750 height=300 src=http://www.clancaos.net/chatbox/chatbox.forum marginheight=2 marginwidth=2 scrolling=no allowtransparency=yes name=chatbox style=border:#002EFF 1px solid;border-top:0px></iframe>
 

You might have to adjust the width in the code, It looks fine on my test board and is lining up with the widget, But thats the best i can do for now, Nothing i have tried with css seems to be working so i am not adding the right css or something..

So try that.
