Guide: How the chatbox works

Post by WrapB4UTap on July 22nd 2010, 7:20 pm

How to activate your ChatBox:



























How the ChatBox works:





Member List

This is where you can see who is in the chat, and who is viewing but not
currently active. If you're replying to a comment, check to see if
they're around first! Clicking a name here will copy it into your
outgoing chatbox bar.


Chatbox

The main body of the chat. This is where the text each member submits is
sent. The name of the player, date and time of the post are given.
Text can be any color, and special commands detailed at the end of this
guide always appear in white, with an asterisk before the player's name.
Log In messages are displayed in green,
while Log Out messages are displayed in red.
Once again, clicking a name of a player will copy their name into your
outgoing chat bar.


Toolbar
Refresh

Refreshes the chatbox immediately, displaying new messages at the bottom.


Archives

Switches between showing posts since you logged in/limited amount, to showing a larger amount of
older posts that took place long before you logged in.


Auto refresh

Check this if you would like the chatbox to refresh on its own every little bit, so the chatbox
stays up to date. If this is unchecked, the chatbox will update only
when the Refresh button is manually clicked, the Auto Refresh button is
checked, or the user types a new message.


Log Out

Logs you out of the chatbox.



Text Format
The text format bar allows you to modify your text's style. You can adjust
your text into Bold, Italic, Underlined,
or Strikethrough. You can combine any
combination of the four, and your preferences are stored between
visits.


Font
Color

Like the text format bar, this modifies your chat, and is saved between logouts. Here, you
can chose a color. The ones in the very left collumn are the basic
colors, while the others are variations and shades. If you understand
hexadecimals, you can input your own 6-charicater color code at the
top.


Smilies


Smilies, everyone loves them Very Happy This is where you can select a smilie. Selected smilies
will be placed in your chatbar and sent when you send your text. At the
very top is a bar which in future, may allow you to select from a
different set of smilies.


Your Text

This is where you input your text. You can enter and delete text as normal,
but it will only be sent upon pressing enter or clicking the Send
button to the right of the input box. Upon doing so, the bar is
cleared, and the text is sent to the Chatbox.
