vB Shoutbox 1.0
Mod Version: 1.00, by TWTCommish (Member) TWTCommish is offline
Developer Last Online: Dec 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 2.2.x Rating: (3 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 263
Released: 16 May 2002 Last Update: Never Downloads: 147
Not Supported  

Well, people wanted it, so here it is: a vB-integrated Shoutbox. It's a little different than the one they used to have on this site, however. The moderation functions are VERY basic...but they'll be improved for 2.0, most likely, if there's any interest.

A short breakdown:
  • It's a chatroom-esque page that everyone can use.
  • Shouts that day, shouts in last 24 hours, shouts by YOU, and total shouts, are all tracked.
  • Leaderboard (top shouters) is tracked.
  • Clickable smilies automatically added below the add shout box.
  • "delete" link shown on all shouts if you're an admin or a moderator (usergroupids 5, 6, and 7 by default).
  • bbCode parsing included.
Attached is an archive containing all the files you'll need for the basic installation, AND for the optional features. NOTE: the vBHacker compatible file included within does NOT constitute a full installation. You'll still need to upload the shoutbox.php file to your main forums directory.

Enjoy. Here's a live demo: http://www.movieforums.net/shoutbox.php

If you change the name of the file you will have to change any references to the file name in the templates, also.

Sure. I changed the MetaRefresh in the File itself, and the Form in the postshout template.
But at first, this has no effect, and it is for the first call of the site unneccesary.

This is an outstanding hack (the best since FireFly's "Quick Reply Box")! Thank you VERY much, TWTCommish, your work is greatly appreciated!

Here's an idea - wouldn't it be great if the actual shouts (in the left column), were loaded into an <iframe>, where they could then be refreshed at a frequent interval? This would allow you to see new shouts without loosing a message you might be typing...

Just a quick question - is it possible to limit the number of characters per shout?

Some of my users have been posting shouts that are more like mini-novels, and its throwing my entire front page out of whack!

A quick improvement to the shoutbox_postshout template:

This allows you to limit the characters posted by checking the form onsubmit. Javascript taken from here because I'm lazy. Replace the shotubox_postshout template with:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Thanks to TWT for a great piece of work!

This is working great on my site, but I was wondering if it would be possible to add a "Who is chatting" I want to use this as a chat for my site.

Thanks!

Ian

Hey this is an awesome hack :smoke: Thanks for your hard work on this one my members love it.

I have one ???, is there a way that I can make the shoutbox invisible or disable it for a specified user group? Our 'trolls' like to use it to post garbage.

thanks for your help
