vB Version: 3.5.0 RC2 Rating: (107 votes - 4.66 average) Installs: 1833
Released: 28 Jul 2005 Last Update: 23 Apr 2006 Downloads: 9318
Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

Staff Edit/Update

I have released an updated version of this hack (version 2.0.1), this version fixes some security issues with this hack. All version prior to this one allow users to insert html in their shouts, this can cause problems with them using html that breaks the site layout or malicious javascript. Download the new zip file (vBshout_fixed.zip) and upload the new vbshout.php file to patch/upgrade. If you want to manual instructions they are in the zip file, in the file bugfixes.txt

Second Staff update

I've uploaded a new version of this hack, dubbed '2.0.2'. This one should fix the html injection issues without breaking special characters. To upgrade, download the new zip file and upload the new vbshout.php file.

Please note that this only fixes the html injection issues. I do not use this hack on my own forum (although I've tested this on a client's board) so I will not be fixing the server load issues. I suggest you do not install this hack if you can't deal with the extra server load, as it's rather intensive.

End staff edit

Well, been a while since I've been to vb.org and released anything, thought i'd break the trend and whip up something quick while I have a little spare time.

A shoutbox as you would assume, a very simple one to start off with, but does include AJAX Technology, which pushes the shoutbox 1 step closer to live, messages from other people will appear with no refreshing, and so will yours that you post

Littleman, my installation said "Loading" too. I didn't have the vbshout.php in the forum directory. Copy that file there and it should start working [assuming permissions are correct].

Maybe this question has been answered before, but I couldn't find it in this thread. I'm runnin' 3.5.4 and special charactors like quotation marks and greater than/less than symbols show up as HTML code in the shout box unless I turn the vBcode and smiley option off in the ACP.

Sooo, now my users can't use smileys because of this glitch. Any fix for this??

possibly?

A possible quick solution to limit access to the archive and archive functions by user group :

There is a template called forumhome_vbshout that has as part of its contents a line with the following info: <a href='vbshout.php?{$session['sessionurl_q']}do=archive'>Shoutbox</a>

Perhaps one could possibly change that line so that it reads:

<if condition="can_moderate()">
<a href='vbshout.php?{$session['sessionurl_q']}do=archive'>Shoutbox</a>
<else />
Shoutbox
</if>

While that will not prevent a user from manually typing in the name of the link. It will prevent those without the knowledge of the links parameters from going further.

If one is a bit more interested in digging deeper one could, possibly, open the vbshout.php file and find:

if ($_GET['do'] == 'archive')
{

located around line 356/357

Then one could, possibly, insert below the line with the "{" and above the line "$navbits = array("vbshout.php?" . $vbulletin->session->vars['sessionurl'] . "do=archive" => 'Archive');"

something like:

//use for an individual access
//if ($vbulletin->userinfo['userid'] != X)
//use for usergroup access
if (!(in_array($vbulletin->userinfo['usergroupid'], array(6,7))))
{ print_no_permission();
exit();
}

Where 5=super moderators, 6=admin, 7=moderators, and (optional) X1= what ever other usergroup one wants to include (if one was not to use X1 then do remember to remove the "," as well).

Then it should be highly possible that one would, possibly, be able to highly limit the access to the Shoutbox, a most wonderful product!, archive functions.

Of course one would be on their in doing such things.:surprised:

I've just noticed after installing vbShout (although it may have been happening before) that, when I log in from the forum home (where the shout is) I get the Thank You and am redirected back to the forum home but it doesn't recognize that I'm logged in until I go to a second page. Any ideas?

Message with quote truncated in edit box

Whenever I enter a message with a quote in it and go to edit it, the message is truncated after the quote. Are others seeing this problem and is there a solution? Thanks!
