Major Lite Features

Advanced Shout Control: You have the ability to post shouts, edit your shouts, PM shouts to other users, Ignore other users, insert /Me commands, insert smilies, Bbcode, change font, text colour etc.

Advanced Staff Control: Give your staff members customised permissions to allow them to do certain actions, on all or selected instances and chat rooms. Permissions include: Silencing users, banning users, editing user shouts, Creating/Editing "Sticky Notices", Pruning shouts and much more.

Resource Optimisation: vBShout implements an Advanced Optimisation Protocol to save your forum resources. Enabling this will further reduce the amount of resources consumed by the shoutbox. AOP was originally featured in Inferno vBShout, and DBTech vBShout takes it to the next level by ensuring that all your chats are always up-to-date without taking up needless amount of resources.

Shoutbox Tabs: New PM's or User Chat Rooms create Tabs. Tabs will highlight to let you know something new has happened, and you can even set them to make sounds to alert you.

Active Users Shout-bit: Shows the users active in the tab/instance you are, with the option to view everyone who can enter/exit the room at will (and thus see any shouts posted) in a pop-up to save resources. Perfect for seeing what's going on and who's around at a glance.

Context Menus: Many places now make use of context menus less having to remember /commands, one click access to the most useful and commonly used functions, and the ability for users to access their shoutbox settings directly from the shoutbox itself.

Custom Chat Rooms: Your users can now set up their own Chat-Tabs, where they get to set who can come and chat. Perfect for clubs, guilds etc. Admins can also create permanent Chat rooms for specific usergroups etc. perfect for a staff only chat room for instance, or to reward loyal members!

Custom Shoutbox Instances: Ever wanted a separate shoutbox just for your admin forum? Got a part of your board only for VIP members? Now you can set a shoutbox specific to those areas.

Shoutbox Sounds: You asked for it, we delivered. Customisable sounds now available on receiving shouts, Invites, PM's and more. (Requires QuickTime Plugin)

Logging: Worried about staff members pruning the shoutbox to cover their tracks? Don't worry, with our advanced logging options, you can make sure a hard copy is kept of every action taken.

Downloadable Shoutbox Archives: You and your shoutbox admins can download a complete dump of the Shoutbox' archive for all instances. With 3 supported formats (tab-delimited CSV, XML and TXT), there's something for everyone whether your purpose is review or programming.

Easy Shoutbox Notice Editing: You and usergroups with the "Can Set Sticky" permission can now edit the notice by double-clicking the Sticky in the shoutbox. Quickly fix typos or rapidly update with new turn of events, editing it is never more than two clicks away.


Professional Only benefits:

Ignore List: Allows users to keep track of who they are ignoring, and control this option via a list.

Additional Moderation Commands: The ability to add/edit the sticky notice through the shoutbox.

Extended Instance Options: Allows you to have separate notices per instance, set usergroup settings for individual instances, and even set unique staff permissions for each individual instance.

Expanded Context Menus: Lets your member/staff use the context menu to add/update the sticky note, Ban and Unban users, Ignore/Unignore users and prune individual user shouts.

Moderator Edit:


Due to changes in the Javascript Structure in vBulletin 5.6.4, this addon was not working. Below are steps to resolve this issue:

Shout is looking for a .js file. But it isn't here.

1. go to : https://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jque...ry.tmpl.min.js
2. copy code and paste it in notepad
3. save it as : jquery.tmpl.min.js
4. copy via ftp to ---> board/js/jquery
5. Reload page and shout is working ( VB 5.6.4)

I am experiencing a new issue with the shoutbox with vb5.0.3 . Some messages aren't showing even though they are sent, and they are definitely sent as they are currently showing in the downloaded archive. I have tried to clear the cache but this has no success. It also doesn't seem specific with a certain browser, do you have any ideas?

Can you please install the "Firebug" extension in Firefox and inspect its Console when you're sending the shout, to see the status of each AJAX request?

I do not use firefox and I am unable to replicate the issue, however most people on the site have given up due to how many "shouts" are not being sent.

I think I may have worked out how to replicate this issue. It appears that it occurs in all browsers.
When the forum has been opened and logged in (Shout box showing). Then the log in times out, the page on vBulletin doesn't change so it still appears to be logged in and the shout box still shows. This fools the user to think they can just continue to post in the shout box as they can still see everybody else's posts. However when you click onto another page you do actually realise you have been signed out. Is there any way to have this not occur or have vBulletin auto redirect to a log in page when it times out?

Thanks

Mark

Unfortunately not, no

If someone posts a shout before their timeout period appears, or they use the "Remember Me" checkbox when logging in, this issue does not occur.

Hey,
I just installed this today on VB 5.0.4 but the installation stopped unexpectedly.

I found it's in the 610a3.php install file - the "metakeywords" field didn't exist in my 'page' table (I'm not sure why - but it was a fresh install of vb 5.0.4).

So, I just commented out line 36 in that file and it completed.

Now it's working - it looks great so far. I'll also be looking to buy the Pro version of this (and the Arcade)

I'm not expecting a reply - just letting you know (in case others get a similar problem trying this out).

Actually, that entire file is obsolete as of 5.0.4 - I had forgotten I made it that way

I've fixed it in the Lite (& Pro) version available @ our site for now.

Thanks
