sounds like a tinyportal issue you may be best asking on the TP forum.(as well)
I reject your reality, and substitute my own.

Thanks @rjen I just can't figure this shout box out.

You didn't say where you wanted the shoutbox to be displayed or if there was something else you were trying to do with it...

For the image, I believe it has to do with where it's hosted (not on your site). If I try to adjust the width it enlarges the entire image...width and height.

In what way Ronald.  It should be pretty straight forward, what exactly are you trying to do with the shoutbox? we'll help you get there. ;)

I want it to display on the front page and the arcade page. I did figure it out by accident, but ended up with two shout boxes. I got rid of one and now the other one doesn't want to show until I log out and back in or I have to click another live link, then it'll show and disappear again..

Did a ctrl f5 and cleared the cache, didn't work..

Was going to register and take a look for you, but your verification questions isn't working.

Oops, just noticed you sent me a message.  Take a look at your site now, is it working as you wanted now?

Yes I see thanks.

How do I stop the scrolling.

Sorry it was getting late last night in the UK.  I see you found the setting to stop the scrolling.  Though not sure what happened to your arcade page, it was working last night but something has broken the page, it's displaying the site inside itself.  Some dodgy code there methinks.

Ron, I've been seeing errors when using PHP 7.4 and think you should be using 7.3 instead. Remember 2.1 is not a stable version and will have bugs. I tend to have less issues using 7.3 than 7.4.

It's running 2.0.17.  :???  Looks like TinyPortal has gone and been replaced with SP, not sure why as it was working ok, guess this is a personal preference thing. Not sure we'll ever convert Ronald where this is concerned. lol..   

Curious though, why is the GDPR helper installed when 2.0.17 already has GDPR stuff built in.  :dontknow

Skhilled

Ron, tends to give up easily. Yeah, the issues may be mod related and make sure they are all installed properly first.
