vB Shoutbox 1.0 Details »
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

thanks for the hack again mate, great work!
Thanks for pointing that out. I'll change it tonight.

Interesting..I have a shoutbox I downloaded yet to try but its called Shoutbox V2 and it was made by Mewtwo, Crater Seraph, and TWTCommish. Is this the same one you have just released? If so, you forgot to include 2 others who helped make it ^_^
No one helped me make this hack. However, someone who I sent it to for beta testing purposes apparently made some change and is calling it "vB Shout Box 2.0" -- they sent me a copy and I'm basically trying to figure out what's going on. I certainly didn't know anything like this was going on and I'd rather not release a second version until I've added more.

I get a JS error when I try to use the clickable smilies: "'message' is null or not an object'
I'm trying to get to the bottom of this. Hopefully I'll manage to figure things out.

And I have fixed it
Thanks for your patience -- sorry about that!

I'll try to work out some of these bugs and re-upload tonight. Sorry for any inconvienence.

Apart from the smilies not working, everything is great - a fine hack! - No need to say sorry for anything!

What version of vB are you running? I'm on 2.2.4, could this be the reason?

EDIT: I just realised someone had already said this. Oh well LOL.

I was a beta tester for this also, it works perfectly on my forums. I did tell TWT about the form error, rather than hard coding it you could use $bburl/shoutbox.php. But he frgot, though I'm not complaining because he never stops working!

Yeah, that's what baffles me; I guess there's a difference in versions. Perhaps the vbcode.js file has changed recently?

Fixed it!

Now, this left me really confused. I had no "vbcode.js" file at all in my root directory, only a "code.js" - but the forum still functioned perfectly! (And I never changed it )

Put a fresh vbcode.js in the root and it works fine...

Sure. In your forumdisplay.php file, replace this:


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

...with this...

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

Whatcha got in mind, out of curiousity? I'd be interested to see where you put it. You'd probably want to change the HTML in the forumhome_shoutbox template, however...it's designed specifically for the mainpage, what with the colspan and all.

Right above the threads? Yeah, I can do that. Hang on, I'll get back to you. Glad you dig the hack, BTW, though personally I think the next one I'll be releasing is even better.
