help...regarding Shoutbox/chatbox
« on: March 19, 2016, 04:51:38 pm »
I've been reading some of the posts regarding problems installing a chatbox and can't seem to find my problem.  I have opened a new forum and have been able to figure out everything so far that I need...EXCEPT how to get a chatbox working.  A friend of mine allowed me to get into her forum's Admin and see if I could figure out my problem, but that has not helped.  I figure I have failed to include a step or two in trying to set it up.  Is there anyway someone could go into my forum's EZPortal and tell me what I'm doing wrong?  I wanted to be able to figure this out by myself, but I'm about to pull my hair.  By the way, do I have to get a chatbox from another site?  Or does Createaforum provide one?

Any help would be greatly appreciated...thanks

First you have to enable the shoutbox in ezportal under ezportal settings
Then you have to add a shoutbox to a column such as the top, right/left sidebar etc.
Make sure when adding the shoutbox the permissions are set so all membergroups can view it

It's dummy again....*laffs*

1.  First you have to enable the shoutbox in ezportal under ezportal settings
Center & Top are enabled, everything else is disabled.

2. Then you have to add a shoutbox to a column such as the top, right/left sidebar etc.
Top had *shoutbox* added already

Make sure when adding the shoutbox the permissions are set so all membergroups can view it
All membergroups were marked

Am I supposed to do something with the Page Manager?  Am I supposed to have a SHOUTBOX Category?  Because I do have one, but the shoutbox is still not showing. 

Where I have Center enabled, I show ParseBBC ezBlock...is that correct or should it be something else?
