Chat Box information!

Post by brandon on Sun 21 Feb 2010, 02:19

What is a ChatBox?

A ChatBox, is one of many ways of communicating, chatting with the members of your forum. ChatBox is to some extent, a software of instant communication (Msn Messenger) integrated into your forum. The ChatBox present on your forum, uses AJAX "technologies" (Asynchronous JavaScript And XML).

Commands of the ChatBox

These following commands must be typed in the "message" field, as if you were posting a message :

Erase messages:
You simply have to write




A confirmation message should appear:

Ban a User: (from the ChatBox)
You simply have to write

/ban USER

You have to change USER by the name of the user.
The user will then not see the ChatBox, like guests. (The ChatBox is reserved for members)

A confirmation message should appear:

Unban a User: (from the ChatBox)
You simply have to write


/unban USER
You have to replace USER by the users name

A confirmation message should appear:

* Only chatbox moderators can ban and un-ban users! ^^
* Users banned from the ChatBox are not banned from the forum!

Access to the banlist
You simply have to type


This following popup window will open

Then it will be possible to :
look at the member's profile
Unban a banned member

Writing a message to the 3rd person
You simply have to write

/me message

A confirmation message should appear:

Kicking a member from the chatbox
You simply write

/kick USER

You have to replace USER by the users name

Then the member will be immediately disconnected from the CharBox. Take notice that he can log-in back after. If the member tends to not respect the rules, use the ban command.

[12:04:32]Max--- has been kicked by IsabelLim105

Leaving the ChatBox

This feature can be used only by members. It has the same effect than the /kick command. This means that this will log you out. Take notice that you can also use the "Log out" link on top of the chatbox page.

You simply write


A confirmation message should appear:
[12:04:32] You are disconnected.[/b]

Mark yourself as Away:
You simply have to write




This command will transfer you in the Away users block and a confirmation message should appear:
[i][12:02:09] IsabelLim105 is away

You can also leave a message while putting yourslef on "Absent"
You simply have to write

/away message


/abs message

A confirmation message should appear:
[12:03:36] IsabelLim105 is away : My cat stole my clothes !

To get back to the "Online" members block, you just have to type one of the previous commands, click on "Refresh" or type a message.

To type a complicated username

Have you already encontered this situation when you had to talk to a specific member, but you fainted at the idea to type his super-complicated username ? In this case, it's possible to do a copy-paste of the username, but there's a way which is even simpler. You just have to click on the username, in the Online/Absent column and/or where the messages are displayed.

The right-click

Right-clicking a member's username allows you to access to a few features :

View the member's profile
Send a PM to this member
Show yourself as Away (a popup window will ass you to give a reason, it's up to you to fill in this field or not)
Leave the ChatBox (a popup wiindow will ask you to give a reason, it's up to you to fill in this field or not)
Kick a member (depends on the permissions)
Ban a member (depends on the permissions)
Give him the moderationi status (depends on the permissions)


Who are the members with the @ ? These are members who can use the ChatBox moderation commands.

Which are the rights of the Chatbox moderators ? the moderator members can clear the messages, kick and ban members from the CharBox. The Administrators can use these commands mentioned above, but they can also give and withdraw moderation status to a member.

What is the ChatBox's capacity ? The ChatBox can store up to about 195 messages maximum

I can't ban a member ? In most cases, it comes from the fact that the member to ban has moderation rights on the ChatBox. Remove them from this member then try again.

The ChatBox is invisible/ There is a white frame / I don't see the ChatBox ? This comes from a Javascript cache memory problem. Just a Ctrl+F5 and/or a cleanup of the cache memory should solve the problem

[url=LINK TO INSERT]Clear the cache memory and modifications not done[/url]

I don't see some infos in the ChatBox such as logins/logoffs, kicks and bans of members this problem comes from the fact that you are viewing your ChatBox's archives. To have access to these infos, you just have to click on the "Without archives" link which is next to "Refresh", "Auto-refresh", etc.

My parameters (bold, colors, etc.) aren't saved. These parameters are saved using Cookies, so make sure your browser accepts Cookies.

Are the Chatbox ads disabled when I pay to have the ads removed on my forum? Yes, disabling the ads via the points management will also disable the ads in your ChatBox.

Why am I disconnected after a refresh (F5) / Why aren't we automatically connected ?

<BLOCKQUOTE>A technician wrote:This process is necessary. Otherwise, a person who comes on the homepage without wanting to use the ChatBox will see his page being regularly refreshed for nothing... This makes the servers, your machine, etc. work for nothing.

Only the chatbox is refreshed, but this is using some database and then, sends requests, so this consumes server loading uselessly for some cases.

So, when you access the homepage (or portal), the chatbox stays (and will stay) logged off.
