Iv'e aded some cool things to spark up the chat box on the main page and the Main Chat Window.

You can change the colours to suit your site. The black background you see is my site and is not part of the chat box. There is some rotation applied in the Main Chat Page so keep an eye out for that. :-)

OK Update- "Glassy Reply's"... "Check out Update 2"

                            " Check Out Update 3 "

Just add to your advanced css Thank you for looking :-)

Check it out , i hope you enjoy :-)

  • CSS update !!

  • Very nice work, my friend!

  • Thanks Tj :-)  and Deb this is the code for the message border radius& gradient , this works fine on my test site and my live site, so not sure whats happening on yours although i know you always have more than 1 thing going on  :-) Try moving this code top a different section in you css, I know you will work it out :-)

    li.message {
    -moz-border-radius: 50px 50px 50px 50px;
    -webkit-border-radius: 50px 50px 50px 50px;
    padding: 1px;
    background: -moz-linear-gradient(center top, #1fadd1 3%,#ffffff 89%);
    background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0.03, #1fadd1),color-stop(0.89, #ffffff));
    }

  • Update 2 for the new Chat Box hope you like it :-)

  • Excellent!! I'm using version two right now... I'd like to make the blue headers on main page chat yellow or red, which code changes that color? Thank you. This TIP is excellent. :)

    • Hi Damien, i'm glad you like it, you can customize the sound file if you would like it to sound more like the iPhone :-) here is the code you need just change the

      #31cde8 to the colour of your choice

      div.xg_chatBar.xg_titleBar.xg_theme-ningbar-bc.xg_theme-ningbar-c {
      border:groove 5px #31cde8;
      -moz-border-radius-topleft: 15px;
      -moz-border-radius-topright:15px;
      -moz-border-radius-bottomleft:5px;
      -moz-border-radius-bottomright:0px;
      -webkit-border-top-left-radius:15px;
      -webkit-border-top-right-radius:15px;
      -webkit-border-bottom-left-radius:5px;
      -webkit-border-bottom-right-radius:0px;
      border-top-left-radius:15px;
      border-top-right-radius:15px;
      border-bottom-left-radius:5px;
      border-bottom-right-radius:5px;
      }

  • The sound is changed?? I didn't notice!
    Had no idea you could change the sound this way too..


    Is there any way you could do this for the sound of a camera taking a picture? You know, the signature sound everyone knows. :) Being a photography social network, this would be awesome for me!

    So would I find the sound file, and then link to it inside your code? Where would I find the sound file reference? Thanks again!

    • Hi Damien, Go to 

      Settings

      Features

      Chat

      choose file and upload your sound file.

    • I just sent you the link for the sound file you needed :-)

      • amazing!! Thank you so much Dave! I appreciate your TIP and your help! I have it all working perfectly now! :)
