Solved Can't sign onto chatbox

Post by Diana on August 24th 2011, 7:11 pm

I used this code:
Code:
<iframe src="/chatbox/chatbox.forum" scrolling="no" width="810px" frameborder="0" height="300"></iframe>
And for some reason I cannot log on.

Also how is it possible to put it into a pop up window?

you have to add your forum link to the code.

it would have to look like this.
Like if it was for my forum i would add this link to the part thats in the code.
http://www.forumsuccessors.com

so it would be like this.
http://www.forumsuccessors.com/chatbox/chatbox.forum

and then the code below

Code:
<iframe src="http://www.forumsuccessors.com/chatbox/chatbox.forum" scrolling="no" width="810px" frameborder="0" height="300"></iframe>
 

as far as pop-out it depends what kind of pop-out.
this works good, and there is some other cool stuff there you might like as well.

It still doesn't seem to work even when I put my forum'sname in it.
This is where I have my chatbox:

Is this why it's not working. I'd like it to be a link under Vaba Teema and when you click on it, the chatbox would open in a pop up window.

I have ti there so I can hide it from regular members (whose IP hasn't been checked) and display it for a special group (checked members).

edit: Okay, I got it in pop up but still can't sign on

you have to click the logi sisse thing... lol Razz

why dose it say it like that, different language or something?
anyway click that and you should be in Smile

fro the code it's because you had to remove the /forum from it.
you want it like this
http://velvet.forum.co.ee

Code:

<iframe src="http://velvet.forum.co.ee/chatbox/chatbox.forum" scrolling="no" width="810px" frameborder="0" height="300"></iframe>
 

pop-out code.
Code:
<a href="http://velvet.forum.co.ee/chatbox/chatbox.forum" target="_blank" onclick="window.open('http://velvet.forum.co.ee/chatbox/chatbox.forum','pop-out chat','resizable=1,width=810,height=330,top=60,left=60');return false;">POP-OUT CHAT</a>

or once again you can create your own code here.

use this link

Thank,Kirk for the pop up, it's working. But when I click on the Logi sisse/Log on, nothing happens. And it'snot just for me like that, other members can't log on either.

My forum's in Estonian, Log sisse means Log in.

I can give my username and password if you want

no need for that, is it only the pop-out, you can get into the regular chat right.

Ok i have to get a different pop-out code, may be that generator is not the nest to use for pop-out chat..
But i have a better pop out code that will work..

check back here in a bit i have to snag it from one of my pop-out music players.

I can't sign on to it at all. Doesn't matter where it is.
The pop up code is fine.

well what about your regular chat? forget the popout for now set your chat up regular,
Can you log in that way?
If so follow the directions below.

If not set up a temp admin account or regular member and send me the pass and user name to my PM.


---------------------------------------
ok put this code on one of your html pages.


This is your chat box
Code:

</div><center><table height="300" width="100%"><tr><td><center><iframe frameborder="0" width=100% height=300 src=http://velvet.forum.co.ee/chatbox/chatbox.forum?  marginheight=2 marginwidth=2 scrolling=auto allowtransparency=yes name=Chatbox ></iframe></center></td></tr></table></center>

Now place your html page link in the the two places i have written in caps in the code below where i have it marked,

see the two spots where it says
YOUR HTML LINK HERE, place your html page link exactly over the text

this is the pop-out code.
Code:

<tr><td style="text-align: center; vertical-align: middle;"><a href="YOUR HTML PAGE LINK HERE" style="text-decoration:none" target="popup72" title="text" onclick="window.open('YOUR HTML PAGE LINK HERE', 'popup85', 'width=810,height=310,height=310,left=200,top=275,scrollbars=no'); return false"><font face="Times New Roman"> <span style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal">POP-OUT CHAT
</span></font></td> </td>

 

I just tested it and all works fine, if you have problems with placing the html page link then just post the link here, because it has to be placed exactly over the text in between " " and ' ' or it wont work

It doesn't seem to work when it's not a "regular chatbox". It doesn't even work on html page.

It worked as a regular one.

I put the chatbox to the bottom of the forum and signed on. Now that I removed it I can't log out.

ok i thing because you have other coding thats conflicting with the codes i put up?

Because it works fine on my test forum.
So this is the best i can do right now.Check the bottom right corner of your screen.
I adjusted the colors to go with your forum and it did work for me no problem.
So try that out and see if you like it, because other then that it has to be some kind of coding conflicting with things , i did notice you had some other stuff on your home page etc... and it's hard for me to navigate around because i dont know the language... lol Rolling Eyes

The code to the chat i added is in your homepage message Generalities in case you do not like and want to remove.

you can delete or deactivate the account you sent me know.

I tried the one you put there right now before and the thing I don't like about it is that everyone can post there, even the users who don't have the acess to the whole forum. And I have people who sign up to advertise.

But thank you so much for helping.

Hi,

the shortened URL /chatbox should work, and I've been able to check it works myself Smile

What are you preventing with the no scrolling, and specific frame lengths?
I personally wouldn't use them as they adjust automatically to each person's monitor Smile

Have you modified any templates (or added any new scripts?) around the time this started occurring?
If so which ones?
It's my day off, so Ill probably be around, but I might pop out to help with the night shift

I'll run a few idea's around and see if I can do anything with your iframe script abroad, but if you modified any templates/scripts thats more then likely the issue, and should be easily fixed Cool

well you can just remove that, you have to be logged into the forum of course to be bale to use the chat.

But what you want something just for staff or certain people you only want to allow.
the embed code should still work if you wanted to adjust the size and put it in a forums description with the permissions set for the forum for those you want to allow in with permissions to the forum.

then you just have to remove the (join in chat) in your home page index, and set the chat setting not to display.
