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. I dig the Shoutbox...but I wanted something a little more advanced with a few more features on my site, so I went for it. Thanks for the kind words.

I've been testing this on my forums too [www.gamerforums.com/board/shoutbox.php] and it's definitely what I was looking for - I recommend it to everyone!

fantastic mate, I had only one small problem in shoutbox_postshout I had to change <form action="/shoutbox.php" too <form action="shoutbox.php"

also if anyone else wants to have the shoutbox on their forumhome page with more then 1 shout do the below,


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

open forumhome_shoutbox and replace it with,


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

thanks for the hack again mate, great work!

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 ^_^

And I have fixed it - in the template shoutbox_postshout, I changed:

to

Another small problem - when you click on a smilie, nothing happens - except for an error:

Line: 1
Char: 1
Error: Object Expected
Code: 0
URL: URLetc..\shoutbox.php?
