    You need to add the full url of your forum to the file in the file footbox.js in this part of the url instead of the relative url like below

    Then you need to also put the correct urls in the html file ftbiframe.html so it also calls the stylesheets

        <link media="all" href="" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet">
        <link media="all" href="" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet">

    ok Thanks, I try it later today.

  • DenisSDenisS My brain hurts Buriram ✭✭

    Yes put this in and can put text in and email links, ok but what the "More" button does i can't figure that out. I'll play around with it and see if i can get it all sorted.
    Thanks for your time.

    You can replace the content with your own just respect the column layout or the css won't work. The more buttons are in case you want to link to even more information or a discussion or something else . You don't have to use them . It is pretty basic html then the iframe puts it in the foot. You can replace the html and content with whatever you want it is only a container. I simply made it into 3 columns ready to use.

    please update to the new version which works better

  • I've installed Footbox and find that it is interfering with the "New Discussion" button in the left panel.

    You can see in this screenshot that the button is only half the width it needs to be:

    Here it is live: (If you aren't logged in, then it shows correctly with "Sign In" and "Register" but they are stacked on top of each other.)

    I know the interference is from Footbox because when I disable Footbox, the New Discussions button is the right size, across the entire "New Discussion".

    Any suggestions on how I can still use Footbox and not mess up the New Discussion box?

    That's what responsible for it:

    a.Button {
        width: 60px;

    But I do not know if you can simply delete that... :-/

    Yes, look in the css file for the footbox plugin and remove or comment out that css rule for a.Button

  • yes! It worked! thank you so much. I commented it out instead of removing it (just in case :-) )

    Loving Vanilla, Footbox, and your support :-)
