Project Description

This is the latest version of Inferno vBShout LITE, the free version of our Inferno vBShout Pro product (see above link).

Additional Features

Auto-Idle
The auto-idle system will drastically lower server load on sites with many users on at the same time. It allows you to automatically set the user to "idle" in the shoutbox, meaning the shoutbox will load shouts once, then idle the user until the click the unidle button or make a shout. Afterwards they will idle as normal (as set in the ACP).

Shoutbox Advanced Optimised Protocol
The Shoutbox AOP is a brand new feature that when turned on will dramatically cut server resources/bandwidth used by the shoutbox. Instead of the shoutbox refreshing every X seconds to check if there is new data, it will know when there is new data and only refresh then, meaning when there is no activity in the shoutbox, no resources will be consumed, or bandwidth.

Shoutbox Low Level Logging
The shoutbox low level logging system will provide you with a log of shout edits, deletes, bans, unbans, notices and remove notice commands. This will help you keep track of commands being used in the shoutbox. This can be turned off.

Private Message System
When clicking a username in the shoutbox, it will now open a new "tab" (This is a shoutbox tab, not a browser tab). In this tab you will be able to privately chat to the member where only they and you will see the messages. This helps split private chats and the main chat, and you can have as many private chats open as you like!



vBSEO Issues?
If you're encountering issues with vBSEO this is most likely due to the option within vBSEO to "clean html", you do not need to turn this option off, but you will need to change the plugin for vBShout. Go to the Plugin Manager within your ACP, and find the plugin: "Inferno Shoutbox: Deploy Shoutbox". Edit this plugin, and where you see the option "Execution Order", set this to 1 and save, you should no longer encounter issues.


Note
I'll update screenshots soon! 5am here right now...

Enjoy!

Inspired by Distance.. wow

Although I already had it installed before you released it and I was the first to download it.. (Sorry, Had to let everyone know that.. xD)

Its a great improvement from the vbshout 2.1 you released..


The only things I think could be added are:

Ban usergroups
Show shoutbox to usergroups... x,x,x
New shouts at top / bottom
Shoutbox lockdown (Only userid1 can post)
Have a smiley menu


Anyway great release.. My users are already loving it

Found a small bug .. If a member makes a post, it's added to the shoutbox but if the post is deleted it still shows in the shoutbox.

Members are missing the clickable smilie row from the old 2.1 shoutbox.

How does this compare to the regular vBshout in regards to server load?

EDIT: Also, any way to get it on the vB CMPS?

The mod hasn't been tested on a slow server yet, but thanks to some of the new features (idle timeout etc) and a complete code optimisation and overhaul, it should be much MUCH more efficient.

Pro version is in the works, our aim is to release it within the next week, it will have lots of cool new features. Planned is:

Multi-Shoutbox Page Deployment
Double Click Fast Edits
Smiley Menu

The following commands

/silence
/private
/ignore


There are other features planned as well, but those will stay a secret for now

Doesn't seem to work with vBSEO enabled.

after disabling vBSEO it works pefectly fine. instead of index every thing is simply rewritten to /, ex:

http://www.yoursite.com/forums/index.php = without vBSEO
http://www.yoursite.com/forums/ = with vBSEO
