vB Version: 3.5.0 RC2 Rating: (107 votes - 4.66 average) Installs: 1832

Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

Staff Edit/Update

I have released an updated version of this hack (version 2.0.1), this version fixes some security issues with this hack. All version prior to this one allow users to insert html in their shouts, this can cause problems with them using html that breaks the site layout or malicious javascript. Download the new zip file (vBshout_fixed.zip) and upload the new vbshout.php file to patch/upgrade. If you want to manual instructions they are in the zip file, in the file bugfixes.txt

Second Staff update

I've uploaded a new version of this hack, dubbed '2.0.2'. This one should fix the html injection issues without breaking special characters. To upgrade, download the new zip file and upload the new vbshout.php file.

Please note that this only fixes the html injection issues. I do not use this hack on my own forum (although I've tested this on a client's board) so I will not be fixing the server load issues. I suggest you do not install this hack if you can't deal with the extra server load, as it's rather intensive.

End staff edit

Well, been a while since I've been to vb.org and released anything, thought i'd break the trend and whip up something quick while I have a little spare time.

I got that once too, but I refreshed and it went away. I would take a wild stab in the dark and say it's something to do with your connection to the db/server, how's your resource usage?

Along w/ the question of how much server load it causes...is there a way to slow down the shouts a member makes? Like x secs between shouts, sort of like the vb's search feature? That would probably prevent shout abuse.

I know it's possible to ban abusers...but I prefer to moderate the amount of shouts instead of just ban people.

Is there any way to embed the shoutbox into an iframe/something so I can display it on a seperate page?

although a superior modification, there should be a warning to the HUGE HUGE HUGE amount of bandwidth (transfer) this script utilizes
