Project Description

This is the latest version of Inferno vBShout LITE, the free version of our Inferno vBShout Pro product (see above link).

Additional Features

The auto-idle system will drastically lower server load on sites with many users on at the same time. It allows you to automatically set the user to "idle" in the shoutbox, meaning the shoutbox will load shouts once, then idle the user until the click the unidle button or make a shout. Afterwards they will idle as normal (as set in the ACP).

Shoutbox Advanced Optimised Protocol
The Shoutbox AOP is a brand new feature that when turned on will dramatically cut server resources/bandwidth used by the shoutbox. Instead of the shoutbox refreshing every X seconds to check if there is new data, it will know when there is new data and only refresh then, meaning when there is no activity in the shoutbox, no resources will be consumed, or bandwidth.

Shoutbox Low Level Logging
The shoutbox low level logging system will provide you with a log of shout edits, deletes, bans, unbans, notices and remove notice commands. This will help you keep track of commands being used in the shoutbox. This can be turned off.

Private Message System
When clicking a username in the shoutbox, it will now open a new "tab" (This is a shoutbox tab, not a browser tab). In this tab you will be able to privately chat to the member where only they and you will see the messages. This helps split private chats and the main chat, and you can have as many private chats open as you like!

vBSEO Issues?
If you're encountering issues with vBSEO this is most likely due to the option within vBSEO to "clean html", you do not need to turn this option off, but you will need to change the plugin for vBShout. Go to the Plugin Manager within your ACP, and find the plugin: "Inferno Shoutbox: Deploy Shoutbox". Edit this plugin, and where you see the option "Execution Order", set this to 1 and save, you should no longer encounter issues.

I'll update screenshots soon! 5am here right now...

Actually I have already fixed it. I just re-uploaded and over wrote all the old files. Then it worked perfectly! Great product!

Should I uninstall vbshout 2.0 after I install this one and upload the XML and overwrite?

I dont wanna mess anything up

It doesnt seem to be working though.. I mean it seems like the old vbshout 2.0 is still working.. but the upgrade doesnt seem to have done anything..

any pointers?

I uploaded all the files to my root.
I imported the XML
I even went in to my vbulletin options and checked out the settings/options in the Inferno vbshout section.. i checked the first box (turn on/online)

is there something else I need to do for it to work?

I believe I may have found a bug. When I edit the option that determines how many shouts are shown, it will not change. The value is changeable, but the actual number of shouts shown seems to not change - at least when the number is bigger than the default (I have not tested it with a smaller value).
