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 :)

nothing happened after i installed the plug-ins....
and upload the file...

can u tell me whats wrong?

bleodler 28 Jul 2005 23:54

Excellent, it's working great on my test board. One very minor complaint though, when a member is viewing forumhome page now, their location listed in their profile is "Unknown Location /testvb/vbshout.php" It would be nice to have it say Forum Index like normal.

Make sure you go to "Manage Products" and click on "Add/Import Product" and are not going to "Download/Upload Plugin". That could be the problem.

I think you'll need to upgrade to RC1 for this hack, that's the version that introduced the product manager.

I'd be interested in that as well. Our users would love to have the shoutbox back, but it looked like a dog's breakfast at the top of the forums. I'd be tempted to reload it if I could get it to appear at the bottom.

Very nice... What are the maximum shouts it shows? I'm assuming once it hits a quote any older shouts are deleted?

You are so nice... Zero Tolerance put in the effort to make a shoutbox and you say it looks like a dog's breakfast. I, for one, like the shoutbox at the top.

Good work on the shoutbox - I like it. Do you have a timeframe for when this will include permissions and the ability to edit shouts? I really do like the simplicity and I hope it doesnt get overblown like most of the ones for 3.0.7 have.

Edit: This is an extension not a plugin :D

Biker_GA 29 Jul 2005 00:42

The style we're using doesn't lend itself to using a shoutbox at the top. And I don't know if it was ZT's hack or not when we were using it.
