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

Um, you should probably go back and edit your post so you can remove the attachment, then.

Chris, I just wanted to say again how truly solid this is

I had installed Sinecure's shoutbox and it took me 2 hours to customize it and make it work properly. I dropped yours in and bang it worked. Since users had been using Sinecure's, they were quite shocked when everything switched to the new one.

In 1 hour there have been 200 shouts. The users love it, thank you again so much!

No worries mate, good work deserves praise

Yeah, I do plan, I think, to upgrade this script after awhile...assuming it continues to get this positive reaction. "Who's Shouting" is a very good idea...I guess it'd work a little bit like "Users Browsing this Forum"? I suppose I never thought of it because my board isn't big enough to warrant such a thing. And I've been busy with two other significant hacks.

I had a few other ideas, too:
  • Comprehensive admin script to edit/delete shouts easily (perhaps in bulk for the latter?)
  • Who's Shouting? (good idea )
  • Shoutbox Search
  • Shoutbox Smilie Selector (allow admins to easily select which smilies they want below their text box)
  • Shouts in last 24 hours (as an admin, and user options)
  • Refresh intervals: allow user to select how often the page should refresh, if at all.
That's all for now...a few of those are quite easy of course, but I'd rather do things in bunches. If anyyone else has any other suggestions, don't hesitate to speak up.

Yeah, it would be just like the "Who's browsing this forum".

A few things I've noticed is that the breadcrumb doesnt' show up properly (http://www.ringquest.com/forums/shoutbox.php), and smilies don't show up in posts at all...

I'd just like to say that I'm addicted to your hacks *L* Of the 20 odd new features this week, I think nearly half were yours One day I need to learn PHP *L*

Open shoutbox.php, and find this:


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

...right before it, add this...


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

Let me know if that helps with the smilies. If it doesn't, add this:


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

That should help. I think. I hope. You probably have that line in your file already...but without the ", 0, 1" in the function call.

It now reads something like:


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

But still no smilies (from old or new posts)

I mean, it's not a big deal but they would add lots of "ambience"

Ok, 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.

In place of "X" add the forumid number of one of your forums...one that supports bbCode. I think that'll do it. Not positive...but it's worth trying.
