vBulletin 3.x Shoutbox 1.0 is a simple PHP and AJAX shoutbox script that is fully integrated with the vBulletin forum system. Once you have installed it you can place it in any of your vBulletin forum templates.

Features:

* Tested to work with vBulletin 3.x.
* It uses AJAX. This means that every time a new shout is posted by someone it will instantly display in the shoutbox without the page having to be refreshed.
* It is fully customizable. You can allow guests to post, select the number of shouts to display, and even change the name of the shoutbox.
* Only takes about 2 minutes to install. With very simple instructions in a small text file, you will have a unique shoutbox on your forum up and running in no time.
* It automatically inherits the style of the forum. If your forum has multiple style options, it uses the style the user has selected.

if you are logged in it shows your username as a link to your user profile

it only shows "guest" (or whatever you want anonymous names to be) if the person shouting is not logged in

you can take it down by simply removing the iframe code from your template file and then deleting the shoutbox_* files from your web server

thanks Dion. I was hoping there was simpler way to "turn off" the shout box. maybe next version or not, I really do not know much about how development works. but thanks for this, I've been hoping to find a shout box and will use this one...

the shouts are stored in a mysql database and are automatically removed once they reach a maximum amount (which you specify in the config file)

it is not server intensive, all it is doing is pulling a very tiny amount of information from the database on a persistant connection every 2 seconds

This looks nice, but doesn't this belongs in the "Chat Modifications" Section?

Secondly, does it has any special features? Such as ban capabilities, chat moderator abilities for specific users, removing posts, chat archive, etc.
