My search has resulted in very few posts and none from this section so I make it here.

The chatbox is heavy on a page and it requires that the user separately signs into it.

I suggest that a shoutbox be added, or that the admins have the ability to turn a shoutbox into a chatbox.

My reasons are simple.

1. If i add a non-forumotion shoutbox to the page, it won't be able to recognize the member, so it is rather easy for someone to pretend to be someone else. Identity theft 101 eh?

2. If I add a non-forumotion shoutbox, that would mean constant page refreshes resulting in a waste of bandwidth (yeah I have lots and so do my members, but waste not, want not)

3. I like and trust forumotion, so I want to be stubborn and want to only utilize its services, not get an ajax/java shoutbox and embed the {user} code into it.

Thanks Smile

yea sure i too agree with him and the shoubox will hav its logs without cleared but in this chatbox it gets cleared every now and then I also prefer shoubox
Or else is the login scheme is removed from the chatbox then its well enough to use
