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!

So yeah..this script has just become completely useless to me since it overloads servers..

Dear Customer,

This script has been suspended as it was overloading our server:

top - 02:08:21 up 79 days, 11:52, 2 users, load average: 6.61, 5.60, 5.52
Tasks: 247 total, 10 running, 235 sleeping, 0 stopped, 2 zombie
Cpu(s): 60.6% us, 17.1% sy, 2.0% ni, 9.9% id, 10.4% wa, 0.0% hi, 0.0% si

15819 sixthgen 17 0 0 0:00.00 0.1 15484 1848 1568 R /usr/bin/php infernoshout.php

This is unacceptable. Please replace this script with the fixed version of it.

Best regards,

are you on a shared hosting plan, or VPS, or dedicated?

I believe it's a VPS due to the amount of space & amenities we have.

Hmm very strange, i know when we used a VPS we never had any problems, even when we were using a more server intensive version of the shoutbox.

A new version of the shoutbox pro using AOP to massivley reduce server load will be released in the next day or two, but i don't think we'll be making a new lite version any time soon unfortunately.

Occasionaly people do have issues with the shoutbox server load, but that's almost exclusivley on shared hosting.

If you throw me a PM on the itech site, i'll try to get you hooked up with a test copy of the new version, if it runs ok on your server you can purchase it, if not, you can delete it =)

Well, I'm getting a database error too:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I just moved to a new server that has PHP 5.2.5 and MySQL 4.1.22, so I upgraded my vBulletin to 3.6.9 and set it to use MySQLi instead of just MySQL.

Any ideas?

And I uninstalled it, reinstalled it (without reuploading the files) and it seems to work fine, except, like ranj, the shouts are not visible. Also, the "Options" page is... empty. 0_o
