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

Auto-Idle
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.


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

Enjoy!

Thanks!

I am having the same issue. Any fix?


Thanks,

Question

Okay, here is something interesting that I have not been able to find - yet...

The shoutbox shows up find on the main page (still trying to get it to work with vbadvanced) however the collapse graphic is showing up as not found:

When I check a correct collapse button the URL is as follows:
forums/images/hexcell/buttons/collapse_tcat.gif

However the shotbox collapse button is as follows:
forums/{IF}/buttons/collapse_tcat.gif

If you want the full URL, PM me

Any suggestions? I have looked all over the place and cannot locate where this is called out to correct it.

BTW, once I get lite working with vbadvanced - I will be upgrading, as there as some additional features that I want!

hello! I've just installed this, but I have an issue with this line (I've edited the original code to this line):


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

if I remove it - nothing works,
but if I don't - shoutbox looks ugly (http://latforums.lv/)

how do I remove it and make everything work?

thank you!

EDIT

nevermind that, I got it

I have already set up the page for it but cant get it to show think its something to do with the page deployment thing having there own defined names does anyone know how to add pages to this??

Searched and did not see this.

Is there a way to prevent invisible users from showing in the active users? I get flooded with pms when people see me on my forums.

This would be a fine hack if it were for the simple addition of being able to edit or delete shouts ..... and maybe usergroup control as well - shame really

*clicks uninstall
