I normally use firefox and I've noticed an issue with the ocportal shoutbox panel.
I'm not sure if this is something caused by my custom theme or what.

I have all of my other side panels set to display their contents with a width of 150px. But I can't seem to find where to edit the width of the shoutbox. Or how to remove the scrollbars in Firefox.

This issue isn't as obvious in Chrome but it is still visible.

Screenshot in Chrome:

Screenshot in Firefox:

Notice Chrome has no scrollbars. But also notice, in Chrome, the "send message" button is cut off partially.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Take a look at View topic: shout box "send message" - which might offer you the solution.


Take my advice. I'm not using it!

thank you that fix worked.
I had to adjust the width to 97% for it to fix in firefox, but now it looks great in both :)
