cant disable shoutbox
« on: August 19, 2019, 10:37:15 pm »
The disable shoutbox button only makes the shoutbox larger not removes it. And since the shoutbox is always on by default for some reason you can no longer remove it? Is this a bug or a new change?

Same thing happens to me, when I disable shoutbax it gets large and the site gets weird.

I think something went weird with the CSS or something?

As well as the shoutbox acting oddly, I usually use the pink and gray theme and it suddenly looks very strange.

Close shoutbox works.. somewhat. Mirrah pointed that out to me. (You rock!)

I believe that Veks is playing around with a few things, trying to fix another issue.   ;)

Close shoutbox leaves an extra vertical line with the shoutbox buttons

I can't open mine (not that I use it that often, but now that I'm used to it up, it's weird seeing it closed).

Fixed that bug.

The theme selector is being especially stubborn. -_-

Shoutbox is currently not visible on the default theme.  Full-screen functions, but the 'in-site' version does not appear.  The 'Disable Shoutbox' is there (and doesn't do anything), but the channels (Public/ApprovedBox/Close Shoutbox) do not show.

I don't know if it's a bug. You could set a theme with _ns at the end (in the Look and Layout section). A number of the themes have _ns versions (but if there's one you want to use that doesn't, try setting a different one then change back). That means 'no shoutbox' and it should just be disabled by default.

You could also try ctrl-f5 on the page to refresh it or clear the cookies and see if it solves the problem.

Is that a good or a bad thing?

of course unable to close shoutbox properly is a bad thing. What else would it be??
