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.

I did like to be able to give guests permission to shout too, on my board.

and somewhere a little bix where they can type a name

example; I'm a guest and goes to the shoutbox, and type in: TK in the little name box: writes: hello in the type box and presses shout.

it will say: [Today 12:07 AM] G_TK: hello

(all guest will auto get a G_ infront of their name, and the name wont function as a link)

possible?

It would be great to give admins the opportunity to define x shouts per x posts/day

Example : makes 5 posts on one day , therefore he can make 20 shouts on that day.

Or another great option would be :
USers cannot post X shouts in a row


Great Mod !

Is it possible to restrict who has access to posting shouts in terms of post counts? We have a lot of people sign up just to spam the shout box, I would like to restrict it so that only people with 1000 posts are allowed to use the shout box.

I think it's already a feature in the shoutbox. Flood shout - look for it.

You could create a new group called Shouters based on your registered users group and then create a cron job to change members into that group at 1000 posts... Then entered the registered users group into the ban box in shouts settings...

I have run into a bug while using konqueror (browser for linux)

The scrollbar to the side apparently doesn't work and it stretches the entire shoutbox out.

here's a screenshot

Probably related to the safari complaint as the both use a form of khtml.

Installed, flawless and done in 5 seconds flat. Thank you very much, this is a terrific mod.

I have a small suggestion/question: what is the AJAX polling time set at? It might be an idea to allow that as an option, for those with serious hardware they could set it low to give a proper chatroom feeling, and those without the hardware could set it lower so as not to upset their hosts

Re-install the hack and see if that will fix it.

Hi all,

ist there any way to include the shoutbox into my arcade.php also? I'm not using the add-on "vbshout on all pages". I only want the box on forumhume, vbadvanced portal AND v3arcade. Maybe i can add some additional code to my arcade.php?

Best wishes, Wachtmeister
