Shoutbox tweaks
« on: Sep 22, 2014, 22:12:58 »
I took the liberty of lengthening the shoutbox as screen resolutions have generally increased over the years :)

However there was one thing that was very odd still. the post entry box was at the bottom but the last msg was at the top.   this is completely counter intuitive and no other chat program i know of does this.

It would be particularly annoying for small screens and mouse less devices like phones where scrolling p/down all the time is frustrating..

So... I have told it to reverse the order.. now just like Skype , messenger, IRC etc.. the latest message is at the bottom next to the box you type in to reply to said latest message  :blues:

ha haa, nope, no censoring here :) .. The shoutbox does have a fit occasionally it seems though.

4 times i tried to post 1 comment by the time i got through the conversation was way ahead of me  :( its hard enough to keep up when you type with 1 finger ....................................   
how long before the new web page is ready ?

i know its not an easy fix ( and your probably doing this in your own time ) but sometimes its a tad frustrating  >:(

Shoutbox does seem to have issues, when there is time free I will take a look at other shoutbox options.
