Love this addon, it is realy shaping up to be a MOD of the year.. question, like another user asked, is there any future option to have it timeout/idle. Because there is no idle feature, currently, it continues to display shouts to those who just keep my url loaded.. so it does cause a server problem.

thanks and keep up the hard work

I agree if this thing gets an idle feature it will be perfect.

It also really could use an option to disable smilies and a quicker way to setup permissions.

I have recently installed this on my forums, but it seems like it is loading one line of text at a time and scrolling with it, this is kinda boring to wait for if the display limit is high like 50-100 or so.

And as I read it should have been dealt with in version 0.6.9 but its not loading the chat instantly.
Is there an option for it that I have not seen or is there some thing else I can do about the issue?

Other than that I really like it, figured out how to change the colors on it was a bit of a pain, but I blame that on the new StyleVars as I looked for ever for that.

A couple of suggestions...the submit button should either be invisible or grey-ed out when a user doesn't have permission to chat...it prevents people from typing in a long sentence then realising they aren't logged in. Also, I don't like the way it retypes the history with Internet Explorer - it types lines twice or more times if they have been edited - looks kind of silly if you ask me.

Just a feature suggestion

I know you are working hard on this mod - and I really enjoy using it. You've been helpful in answering questions and so - I thought - what could I do in return?

Well - while lurking around - I grabbed a screenshot of IP Shoutbox and thought you'd enjoy seeing the controls, etc and how they are arranged. The controls would really help my new users (some are really young) who do not know BBCode.

I totally understand if you are not interested in adding these types of features.

Keep up the great work.

I have been messing with IP.Shoutbox myself on one of my forums

And a idle timeout will most probably be in the next release along with instant display options

Very cool. Now I'm getting more excited about this product than 4.0 Gold ... LOL.
