2.5.1 Update
Fixed Bug: Archive Pagination wasn't working (page 2 showed same content as page 1)
Fixed Bug: Archive member links did not work
AOP Change: AOP now uses aop.txt, to work on IIS servers.

Project Description

This is the latest version of Inferno vBShout LITE, the free version of our Inferno vBShout Pro product (see above link). Those who were running 1.0.1 Lite will find a lot of useful upgrades and additions, including aesthetic changes and many bug fixes and most importantly a huge decrease in server load and bandwidth consumption.

This version is supported, exclusively at our support forums.

  • Enter forum ID(s) which are exempt from new thread/reply shoutbox notices
  • Archive System (view all shouts, see shout statistics, view top shouters)
  • Shoutbox Lockdown Mode (Only 1 userid will be able to shout)
  • Shouts To Display (How many shouts you want to display)
  • Flood Control (Shouts cannot be posted after X seconds of shout)
  • Use Normal Font Size (instead of using small font)
  • Shout Listings Order (Show newest at top or bottom)

  • Maximum [SIZE] (Set the maximum size allowed for the [SIZE] tag)
  • Protected Usergroups (cannot be banned)
  • Disable Thread/Reply Notices
  • Thread/Reply Notice Exemptions (Enter forum IDs to be exempt)
  • AJAX Refresh Speed (Set how fast ajax will refresh)
  • Smilies Menu
  • Hide Shoutbox To UGs

Additional Features

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.

I'll update screenshots soon! 5am here right now...

I didn't bother with the lite version, went right for Pro... wow! Install was SO easy, (two minutes max!) and it only took one template edit to get the shoutbox showing on all pages! Thanks for a great product, my members are going to love the surprise when they wake up

I'm having trouble just getting the shoutbox to show up on my page article. I put the shoutbox code underneath the navbar just like my index page, as well as added the script to the inferno shoutbox options, it just won't show up!

Can anyone help me?

I like this MOD, but I was wondering if I could do without the "Active Members" indicator and the load graphic than comes up every few seconds.
