Screenshots:

(see attached)

Features:

- Uses AJAX so new shouts show up without the page having to be refreshed
- Set the title and other language features to anything you want
- Will ignore empty shouts, and ones that are being repeated one after the other
- Enter how many shouts you want it to show
- Enter how many days you want it to store shouts in the database (even forever)
- Enable or disable guest shouting
- Members names are linked to their profile pages
- Admins can delete shouts directly through the shoutbox itself
- A fully customizable shout archive with pagination
- Works with any custom theme automatically
- Parses BBcode, smilies, and images if you allow it to
- Installation takes about 5 minutes and is all done through the admin CP
- You can even modify the amount of time it waits in between checking for new shouts
- Plus lots more!

Installation instructions:

1.a) Extract the "ddshoutbox2.zip" file onto your computer using a program like winrar, or winzip

2. Log in to your admin CP, everything will be done within here

3.a) Go to Plugins & Products -> Manage Products
3.b) Click on the "[Add/Import Product]" link
3.c) Browse for the "product-ddsb2.xml" file
3.d) Click on the "Import" button

4. Upload all the ".js" and ".php" files into your main vbulletin directory (the same directory as index.php)

5 Decide where you want the shoutbox on your site (I recommend the top of your forum index)

If you want the shoutbox at the top of your forum index, go to the "FORUMHOME" template, find:
"<!-- / guest welcome message -->
<br />
</if>"
Copy and paste the contents of "template.txt" underneath.

If you want it at the top of every page, go to the "navbar" template, find:
"<!-- / nav buttons bar -->
<br />"
Copy and paste the contents of "template.txt" underneath.

6.a) Go to vBulletin Options -> vBulletin Options
6.b) Select "Dion Dev Shoutbox v2.0 Options"
6.c) Click on the "Edit Settings" button
6.d) Edit all of the values as you desire
6.e) Click on the "Save" button

Additional options:

1. If you want to change the time in which it checks for new shouts, open up "shoutshow.js" with notepad, find "timeint = 2000" at the top of the file, and change "2000" to the time (in milliseconds) you want it to wait before checking for new shouts. 1 second equals 1000 milliseconds. If you want shouts to show up faster, set it to a lower number. If you are worried about server load, set it higher. Don't forget to upload it to your server after you change it so the new timer takes effect.

2. You can edit the shoutbox width and height by changing the iframe width="100%" and height="200" attributes from the "template.txt" file.

The BBcode is mainly used to turn URL's into links. However, it will convert other BBCode (if you enable shoutbox bbcode in the admin CP). Also, smilies are automatically converted into images so if someone type it gets turned into the image.

I made it this way so that the shoutbox isn't cluttered. I wanted to keep it simple and clean.

Yes

In the admin CP, under "Dion Dev v2.0 Shoutbox Options" you can change the time format to whatever you want. The time format uses the php date() function: http://ca3.php.net/date

It is really easy to do.

Does the shoutbox use vbulletin's censor system?

Also, can you add the ability to ban specific users from using the shoutbox?

Yes. The reason words are not censored in my demo is because I do not have any censored words set up yet.

Hey goxy

Did you check his Readme/Install file??

It was in there

5. Decide where you want the shoutbox on your site (I recommend the top of your forum index)

If you want the shoutbox at the top of your forum index, go to the "FORUMHOME" template, find:
"<!-- / guest welcome message -->
<br />
</if>"
Copy and paste the contents of "template.txt" underneath.

If you want it at the top of every page, go to the "navbar" template, find:
"<!-- / nav buttons bar -->

<br />"
Copy and paste the contents of "template.txt" underneath.
So basically open up template.txt included in the download and copy the entire code...


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

Now paste it in any template i.e.
  • Forum Home for main forum
  • Forum Display for Subforums etc
  • Navbar if you find a good spot
  • Header
  • Footer
  • etc
  • etc

Also note you can change some of the variables i.e. height width etc as seen in the code!

--> width="100%" OR just 900 for px

--> height="200" Same as above but you can increase to 300px by changing to 300 etc etc.

--> frameborder="0" To add a border etc so put in 1 or 2 etc etc.

Enjoy and thanks DionDev for the new Shoutbox for vB owners

it does not support Arabic language, it gives unknown output characters when input in Arabic.
also, it does not Arabic language direction which is rtl.
see the attachment.

if you can find a workaround it will be really great.
thanks again
