Chatbox Display Button??

Post by curby23 on June 21st 2010, 11:17 pm

Hi all, not sure if iam posting in the right place so please modz move it please if so...
Right here's my question.......
I have the chatbox enabled on my forum but recently ive had quite a few members moaning that they cant really find it, although it is easy to find as you no...
What i want to do is apply a button on the main forum underneath the banner...
Ive already got something similar with the donation button i have in place so surely there must be a way of adding a button that says Chatbox and when they click it it will take them directly to the chatbox??

Iam sure this is do able but how ????

Any help would be greatly appreicated.... Smile

Got to ACP/Display/Homepage/Headers and Navigators then choose 'add a customized menu'.

At the box 'Redirection URL', put the following URL in: chatbox/chatbox.forum?

Choose the rest as you wish, and press OK Very Happy

You can follow what Et3rn1ty stated above. ^

Also, you could just add a button in your homepage message that links to your forum's chatbox. Here's the code:
Code:
<div align="center">
<a href="http://www.bristlenoseworld.com/chatbox/chatbox.forum?" target="_blank" title="Visit the chatbox and chat with the board members!"><img src="http://i67.servimg.com/u/f67/13/67/77/07/chat10.gif" border="0" alt="Chatbox image"></a>
</div>

It will appear as:

When I add/save the code as you suggested. All I see in the box is the code. I know I'm doing something wrong. I don't know what. ouou ~Ape~ ouou your Help is appreciated.

Could this be a problem because you are running Invision and I'm running phpbb3?

before you add the code in the box make sure you have it set right

make sure this is green if its red click on it and the try again once you have added the code save it should then be ok and it will not matter what sort of forum you have Invision/phpbb3 or phpbb2

I tried this.. and I dont have a "big box" to place it in, nor do i have a button that says "HTML" i'll take a screen shot and post it.

Here is what my ACP > Display > Homepage > Headers & Navigation > Add a customized menu| looks like:
