Oh well, I guess I can do without the autorefresh feature. I had set it at 30 seconds anyway and now I'll save even more bandwidth with it turned off.
Here's another Shoutbox bug:
- HTML special character codes appear as plain-text in shouts (e.g. ă
On a positive note, it seems the no-autorefresh workaround also solves the problem with the shout-text-area of the Shoutbox having the same background image as the overall forum page and thus appearing to be "transparent" in a very ugly way. Two birds with one stone, cool.
Another small Shoutbox inconvenience: if I turn off the "says" text from appearing after every username, the text of what they're shouting comes directly after their name with only a space character as a separator:
user2 I don't know.
user1 Does this work?
This is weird, there should at least be a colon character after the name:
user2: I don't know.
user1: Does this work?
... or maybe the names could be surrounded by angular braces:
<user2> I don't know.
<user1> Does this work?
