Changing size and color of Chatbox

Post by lesliewest_guitargod on April 8th 2011, 8:09 pm

Here's our page: http://tyrspaladium.forumotion.com/

The chat box is big and ugly. However, we NEED security, and the chatbox links to the member directery making only members post thats good!



#1: How do you change the nasty orange bars without changing them for the rest of the website?

#2: How do you change the size? We want it half the length.

#3: Is there a way to replace "chatbox" with another name?

Thank you all for the help!

Hello,

What is your forum version? You can check by going to:

1. Administration Panel (advanced mode)
2. Display Tab
3. Choose a theme (on the left, under Skins)
4. Version Tab

Okay, thank you. To change the orange background, please add this to your CSS code:

Code:
.chatbox .forabg {
    background-color: #0076B1;
    border: medium none;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
}
.forabg {
    background-color: #0076B1;
    background-position: 0 0;
    background-repeat: repeat-x;
    border: 2px solid #FFFFFF;
    clear: both;
    margin-bottom: 4px;
    padding: 0 5px;
}

You can change the #0076B1 in both cases to a different colour if you wish.

Okay, then please try adding this instead and see if it works:

Code:
.forabg {
    background-color: #000000;
    background-position: 0 0;
    background-repeat: repeat-x;
    border: 1px solid #404040;
    clear: both;
    height: 1%;
    margin-bottom: 0;
    padding: 0 5px;
}

Not going to go with the forumotion Shoutbox. Too many clicks to get it active.

I wish it was live and had a captcha type security built in

Since you're not going to use the Forumotion ChatBox, does this mean that this problem is solved?
