Solved Styling the default FM chat box

Post by SWS on May 15th 2017, 11:09 am

So, the other day I had a glance at what that Forumotion's YouTube channel had to offer on chat and what online documentation you guys have to offer about styling the default chat box (burnt my eyes lel (so ugly, ughh), you should be upgrading that default look of it soon). Found nearly nothing that covers the lot, like a few toys / gadgets (notifications and chat line colors only) and some scattered support tickets. Where can I find an update on this covering most of it? I mean, styling is a bit of my thang, but it could / should save me some time. Are they categorized somewhere? This is getting a bit ridiculous getting bits and bites of like everywhere. Anyone? You engineers got any Easter Eggs we're not aware off and wanna share with us (humble ppl Laughing )?

And if not available, could I use screen2gif to upload some to the FM channel when I get started?

Would be nice to see that staff back in France answering this one. Oh, and... thnx in advance Wink

Hello Samantha.

As you know SWS the chatbox is really basic and the only real way to change the look in with CSS and some basic templates change.

We know you have been using the system by LGforum but that was a plugin and we do not have anything that can match that sort of thing.

As for staff from the French forum posting here well i think your be asking for something that will not happen unless @Walt is about to post. but as far as i know there is nothing better then what you have already found

sorry Sad

Yeah, I really had a unique, one of a kind, chat box. One of the best ever on FM if I may say, if not... THE best. Having been cut an arm and a leg because of LG's site shutdown, did you get any word yet from @Walt ? And could you pls send me the link(s) on that/those hidden chat template(s) so I can have a look?

Hello,

I have no better answer to give you, @APE is right, the only way to customize your Chatbox is mainly with CSS. The templates of the chatbox aren't editable anymore (they weren't supposed to be in the first place).

If you understand French, there is some classes and id which can be used in your CSS in that topic (don't know if this one exists here too) :

some chatbox templates can be found in

ACP >> Display tab >> Templates >> General >>
in the search box type in chatbox then you will be shown the chatbox codes that are in the templates but we do not have a list of hidden templates as they are not listed in the main ACP but server side only.

But most change is only done with CSS and maybe if your good at JavaScript then maybe you can change things there also.

Other then that I can't really help any more as the coding side of things is not on my side
The link Walt has sent is a good one for basic CSS file change.

Sorry I could not be of any more help to you.

Right... Thanks so much for your support. Really appreciate it, @Walt & @APE. If that's about all the elements I can style using CSS, which is kinda my thing, styling, I'll be fiddling around with it and try and put it in an HTML page (if there's a doc on making the default cb work in an HTML page already, would be nice to see that coming in via PM). It's a real shame to see LG's codes gone for now, but I'll be saving them anyway just in case LG decides to bring back AvacWeb another day and when able.

Meanwhile, this ticket can be closed for now. Thnx again, both of u, for your support.
