How to get an extra chatbox.

Post by medusa on January 15th 2014, 8:34 am

Hallo Everyone.

My RPG-forum has one main problem which is that there are too many users who write pervert and other inappropriate things like curse words with their characters.(they like to write ingame in the chatbox)
We would like to know if there is some kind of way to make two chatboxes, one for the people who don't want to read mature and inappropriate chat like that and one for them because we do have quite a lot of people who want to be able to write stuff like that but we still have a smaller group of younger people who don't want to read stuff like that.

Me and my admins are frustrated over this because we do not want to remove the chatbox because it is the best way for the users to learn about one another especially when all people can't RPG with one another. We have told people to behave but we still get complains. (of course we could ban people but we rather want to do something else besides that, and we know that we can make chatadmins)

OBS: I do have to tell that it is still rare that people use the chat for inappropriate things, but we still want to be able to make two chatboxes ^^

Yours
Medusa

Hi.

To my knowledge you'd have to install an external chat system/code. One chat many FM users use is the avacweb chat. It allows for separate/multiple chatrooms in one. It's also a popup chat.

Take a look here:

If they are down for maintenance then yeah that is normal. Like every forum they do have to go down for maintenance every now and then.

Just try the link again as when I clicked on it, they were up.

I might be asking stupidly but seems that it does not work.
I have written the code
[panda=css].a_chat_pm tr, .a_chat_pm td, .a_chat_tab tr, .a_chat_tab td { display:none!important; }
.a_chat_pm:before, .a_chat_tab:before { content: 'Hidden Content'; font-style: italic; }
in the CSS which was described.

I have then written the javescript code
[panda=js]var avacweb_chat_config = {
version : '1-8',
new_chat_title : 'AvacWeb Chatbox',
auto_log_in : 'open',
archives : 1,
sound_file : 'http://www.freesfx.co.uk/rx2/mp3s/2/1305_1256857800.mp3',
stylesheet : 'http://chat.avacweb.net/avacweb_chat.css',
disable_timeout : 0,
allow_private_messaging : 1,
allow_user_resize : 1,
commands : {},
can_open_tabs : [1], //user ids of users who can open new tabs.
tabs : {},
allow_copyrights : 1, //please be kind and allow AWC to place small discreet copyrights and backlink on your forum.
// DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING BELOW
message_hook:[],user_hook:[],events:{},add_event:function(t,f) {t=/^on/.test(t)?t:'on'+t;t in this.events?this.events[t].push(f):this.events[t]=[f]}};
document.write('<script type="text/javascript" src="http://chat.avacweb.net/v' + avacweb_chat_config.version + '.js" id="achat_script"></script>');

But it does not work O.o I do not how to view the chatroom. It does not pop up anywhere o.o

This will sound like a stupid question but did you turn on Javacript?

Plus: It does say that it might not work on PhpBB2 as it does have many bugs for PhpBB2.

Can I ask what you did to fix it? Just so others who read this thread will understand?

I fixed my problem by rewriting the code again. I must have had written it wrong or something.
but I have just one question, is there anyone who knows, how to make the text in the textbox a little bit larger because some of our users have a hard time reading the small letters.
