vB Chatbox 1.2.4 Details »
vB Chatbox 1.2.4
Mod Version: 1.00, by p0s3id0n (Member) p0s3id0n is offline
Developer Last Online: Apr 2006 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 2.3.x Rating: (2 votes - 4.50 average) Installs: 212
Released: 25 Aug 2002 Last Update: Never Downloads: 79
Not Supported  

What this hack does : Adds a box on top of your vB home page
where all members can chat/shout in an IRC like way, with all the
vB options added (smilies, vBcodes....)

I started this hack by modifying the shoutbox made by Doug
Tanner for phpnuke (i think).. And it went far far from his original
code. As far as i think he wouldn't recognize it .

I integrated it as far as i could with vB, and in the admin CP,
with every bit of it being possible to modify trough the admin
CP (prune, ban, censure...)...

SCREENSHOT

This hack has been tested and used by some people out
there in france .

1.2.4 changes :
Install problems with the mysql reserved words solved,
Uninstalling option added to the install script,
Possibility to automaticaly add the templates to the
templatesets you chose in the install script,
IE6 problem with divs solved,
timezoneoffset mod integrated,
text input limited to 255 characters.

1.2.3 changes :
security hole on the pruning of the admin part fixed.

1.2.2 changes :
templatesused var filled with all templates used by the
script in the shoutbox.php file and in the index.php file.
And chmod 777 made on the admin/shoutbox_config.php file
by the install script. Thanks to erwin

Name changed from shoutbox to chatbox, because some people
thought of this hack as related with TWT-commish's shoutbox...
no more excuses


Here is some sort of FAQ from all the thread,
hope this helps, and prevents you from reading all that i just read :

#----------------------------------------------------------#
Erwin : limit of smilies a person can post in the shoutbox.
This is to prevent smilie spamming : HERE
#----------------------------------------------------------#
Erwin : Another tip for installers - instead of manually having to
ban users in the shoutbox, to automatically ban users who
you have already banned from the forums : HERE
#----------------------------------------------------------#
For the shoutbox to be in a popup : HERE
#----------------------------------------------------------#
To have 5 'shouts/chats' visible when the chatbox is reduced :
HERE
#----------------------------------------------------------#
SpeedStreet : This simply creates a link for people to click on so
that they can easily view the 'Who's Online' page without
having to dig for it : HERE
#----------------------------------------------------------#
ThoughtDiver: if you want the date format on the shout timestamps
to read Month/Day instead of Day/Month : HERE
#----------------------------------------------------------#

I beg you - can you add (as an option), so that guest can type a nick and could chat and should register (as another option), later. :surprised:

I am using this wil vb 2.3.2 www.abfnet.com/forum you may have either left the chatbox out of the template or placed it in the wrong place. Either of those will cause it to not show up.

How can you make the name of the user a link to his/her profile. All I need is the php code to call out the id of the user. When I put the link say,
member.php=s?$session[sessionhash] (blah blah blah)
and at the end of the link it says "$userid". Well, there is no number at that end. Any help would be appreciated.

Some of my members have a \ in there name and when they post in the chatbox, the backward slash is removed, but the forward slash isn't. Anyone know how to fix it? TIA

Okay, I reverse my previous statement. Our programmer-cool guy has almost got the user end working perfectly.

No admin options yet, though.

Oh, sound nice. Have you thought about guest chatting option with limited rights for limited time, so that new users would want to register after? :ermm:

Is it possible to have a more detailed Who is online, because it's always showing Is currently reading the chatbox. 15:33 and always the latest time, but it's not true. The times should be the last time user was active in the chat and it would be great, if it would show - does the user only reads or types an answer as it is in ICQ. :nervous:
