vB Shoutbox 1.0 Details »
vB Shoutbox 1.0
Mod Version: 1.00, by TWTCommish (Member) TWTCommish is offline
Developer Last Online: Oct 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

v nice hack

i've found that shift clicking (open in a new window) [Reload this Page] causes IE to endlessly loop (love javascript)

to do roughly the same thing without javascript i did:

edit shoutbox.php and just near the top (11 lines down) add

then edit the shoutbox template and change the javascript reload link (_javascript_:window.location=window.location) to:

<a href="shoutbox.php?s=$session[sessionhash]&action=reload">[Reload this Page]</a>

I'm confused, Bald Bouncer: are you saying you want them to be taken back to the forums main page after they've posted a shout?

inphinity: very cool...I'll change that for the next version, for sure.

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.
the person you sent it to is Crater Seraph, who sent it to me, and i also added an edit button and an install script (pretty useless since it has a vbhacker file).

In forumhome_shoutbox replace the $shout[shout_text] variable with your $shouts variable. I think that'll do it.

That's the code you put in the index.php file instead of the code listed in the instructions. Stick it in place of that, and in the same spot. That should do it.

Make sure it edited your index.php file successfully...and then, go shout. It needs at least one shout if it's going to display anything on your main forum page.
