I made it so the IF it's not using custom colors, or users can select it, it would use the color of the class smalltext as you can see in the CHATBOXSTYLE. If smaltext is already defined in your theme.css or another css, you could edit the default color there. That's the best option IF you don't want to turn on the custom colors.
If it isn't defined, you could always define it yourself in the theme.css and set the color and other attributes.
I am considering redo'ing the chat2.php page so that it looks more like the layout of the chatpage. This way you can go through all the posts and either , edit, delete, or ban user. Not just block the one post.
this along with the other fixes mentioned above would be next release, but none are urgent.
I can't customize this to match everyones view. I commented the code and left it straight-line so if you know php and follow the code, you can see where it's laid out in the bottom.
$texto is users online $textm is the menu (message area and controls) $textc is the chat $textr is the remaining post link
So, chatpage.php would be the file to edit, and customize by moving them around, or recreating each one individually. You want to deal with $textm.
I spend 3 months on this, and didn't get a donation. I did get about 10 thanks though.
I had hoped for better, so that I could do a few more plugins, (gambling related, ladder system (better than my basic TMS), and a few others, but I can't afford to. 3 months on this, and a month or so on Sight FX and simple pref is enough for me, I am just here to do basic maintanence, one more pass through and I will be done, it should be stable.
So, I don't plan on spending a whole lotta time doing more 12 hour a day, free coding.
*************************** LANGUAGE FILES ***************************
I have spent a number of months writing this plugin. Apparently the Dynamic Updating is VERY popular as I've seen from searching the net for 'chatbox2_menu'. There are a number of sites using it with the Dynamic updating. Some are still using it, just without the Dynamic updating.
PLEASE - There are a number of sites in different languages, and I am not the brightest lightbulb in the pack, so I only know English.
If you have converted the Chatbox II Language files (and possibly the language var's at the top of chatbox2.js and chatpage.js. PLEASE contribute them by adding them yourselves at [-link-]
There should be one more release coming, that may change the language files a little, but PLEASE consider sharing.
Becuase I can't, I hope people will chip in and create the language files so everyone can enjoy these plugins. It seems easy enough to upload them at [-link-]
*************** STABILITY *************** Also, at that time, it should be fine to redistribute ChatBox II elsewhere, to reduce downloading loads, but I thank all those that left it here, so I got a lot of helpful feedback as it evolved.
I thank all that that did give positive feedback, and There have been some great new plugins really evolving lately (OIM, Krooze Arcade, Gold System and more) that have made e107 sites pretty fun to build.
