Description

When I had left the vBulletin world, I was in the past the co-author of a little chatbox (shoutbox), very well known in the vBulletin world.
This chatbox had been developed by Svaliotti (known as Poseidon on vb.org) for vB2 in the past and I had made the porterage (with is authorisation as we were both members of the same french non-official support forum) and the improvement for vB3.

It is thus normal that in my return in the vBulletin world, I begin by getting down to this hack. Even if several versions of chatbox are already present in the vBulletin world, I said to myself that it would be a good thing to make a made in France.

Naturally, I don't deal with a "copy" version of the other chatbox, I have any coded at the beginning (it was preferable because the front code wasn't so clean any more), and I integrated a good quantity of very interesting features.

New version features

The new version contains all the features from the previous version. Description of these versions can be found in Sofia's post hereabove (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1257510&postcount=3).

Modifications from previous version are the following :
  • 1.5 :
    • Fixed bugs :
      • Chatbox is shown two times in full page mode when the Display on all pages under the navbar option is selected.
      • "Fermer" is not in a sentence.
      • Overflow problem with Netscape.
      • Uppercase transformed to lowercase in the PM channel.
      • The ban cron debans user indefinitly banned.
      • Chatbox continuously loading on some forums.
      • Inactivity and guests problem.
      • Team icon blinking is not working properly.
      • Coma error in the who is online.
      • 2 spaces instead of one between the date and the time.
    • New functionnalities :
      • Option to deactivate the random smilies.
      • Option to deactivate the automatic PM sending when banning a user.
      • New permission to allow or not the downloading of shouts.
      • Option to specify the name under which unregistered users shouts appear.
      • Syntax change for the /ban, /ignore, /del, /pm commands : Possibility to use them with the username or the userid (For more information about the new syntax, check the help button in the chatbox).
    • Removed functionnalities :
This hack is very light in term of queries : only one for every recharging / refreshment of the chatbox and 5 for the statistics in the load of the page if you actiate them. If you don't activate advanced options of course as stated aside each in the acp

Installation

Read the file "Installation" in the pack.

Once the installation is ended, go in usergroups and edit permissions to see the Chatbox.

By default, no group has access to the chatbox.

Screenshots

The screenshots are in french as I have made it on an online website which is in french. Don't hesitate to give me new one if you want in english

They are up to date of 1.3 version.

See the following post : http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1292136&postcount=559

Anyone know why when I try to import the XML files I get an error "Invalid File Specified". This happens both when trying to import from the XML folder on the server (files uploaded via FTP) and when trying to upload via the admin console under the import plugin.

Do you experience that problem only with my chatbox ?
Have you tried to import them directly from your computer ? (could be a problem of url as I can see from your error).

As you seem ok for partial releases, I think I might make one for this weekend !

Waiting with bated breath. Especially if 'To-Do' number 12 has been implemented
Put the chatbox in a global var in order to be able to show it everywhere
Which hopefully will enable us to include it in vBAdvanced.

topsy turvey means upside down which is how they feel about the new entries are when coming in from the top.

Yes this only happens with this mod. I get the same error when I try to import from my computer and from files already on the server.

I didn't understand everything in your post kind of strange english for me

For the smilies, you can set the number that can be shown in the option of the acp.

What is exactly your problem with the " and & characters ?

You can see screenshot in the post no ?
