Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits  

I put a shoutbox on most of my pages, at the bottom of the page. Users complained it was hard to see if there were any new shouts so I hacked up this lil' plugin to display it

1 - Import my plugin thelastshout_v11.xml (no bbcode parsing) or thelastshout_v12.xml (bbcodes parsed)

2 - On Header template

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

BELOW that, add this code

3 - You can add $thelastshout to any other templates where you want the last shout to show but you must install this mod first.
PS: You might have problems with empty values on $thelastshout. If that happens just edit my plugin and change the "hook" from "global_start" to "parse_templates"

PS: This was done here with the latest vBShout for flatfile, but it should work with the regular vBShout.

PS: Parsing bbcodes might mess up your forum layout, as smilies and images will make the one line entry on header higher. If you use that version (thelastshout_v12.xml) I recommend installing it on navbar not on header template.

Code for that wouldn't be hard as the shouts are saved already parsed to a database table. Want me to give it a try ?
