Major Lite Features

Advanced Shout Control: You have the ability to post shouts, edit your shouts, PM shouts to other users, Ignore other users, insert /Me commands, insert smilies, Bbcode, change font, text colour etc.

Advanced Staff Control: Give your staff members customised permissions to allow them to do certain actions, on all or selected instances and chat rooms. Permissions include: Silencing users, banning users, editing user shouts, Creating/Editing "Sticky Notices", Pruning shouts and much more.

Resource Optimisation: vBShout implements an Advanced Optimisation Protocol to save your forum resources. Enabling this will further reduce the amount of resources consumed by the shoutbox. AOP was originally featured in Inferno vBShout, and DBTech vBShout takes it to the next level by ensuring that all your chats are always up-to-date without taking up needless amount of resources.

Shoutbox Tabs: New PM's or User Chat Rooms create Tabs. Tabs will highlight to let you know something new has happened, and you can even set them to make sounds to alert you.

Active Users Shout-bit: Shows the users active in the tab/instance you are, with the option to view everyone who can enter/exit the room at will (and thus see any shouts posted) in a pop-up to save resources. Perfect for seeing what's going on and who's around at a glance.

Context Menus: Many places now make use of context menus less having to remember /commands, one click access to the most useful and commonly used functions, and the ability for users to access their shoutbox settings directly from the shoutbox itself.

Custom Chat Rooms: Your users can now set up their own Chat-Tabs, where they get to set who can come and chat. Perfect for clubs, guilds etc. Admins can also create permanent Chat rooms for specific usergroups etc. perfect for a staff only chat room for instance, or to reward loyal members!

Custom Shoutbox Instances: Ever wanted a separate shoutbox just for your admin forum? Got a part of your board only for VIP members? Now you can set a shoutbox specific to those areas.

Shoutbox Sounds: You asked for it, we delivered. Customisable sounds now available on receiving shouts, Invites, PM's and more. (Requires QuickTime Plugin)

Logging: Worried about staff members pruning the shoutbox to cover their tracks? Don't worry, with our advanced logging options, you can make sure a hard copy is kept of every action taken.

Downloadable Shoutbox Archives: You and your shoutbox admins can download a complete dump of the Shoutbox' archive for all instances. With 3 supported formats (tab-delimited CSV, XML and TXT), there's something for everyone whether your purpose is review or programming.

Easy Shoutbox Notice Editing: You and usergroups with the "Can Set Sticky" permission can now edit the notice by double-clicking the Sticky in the shoutbox. Quickly fix typos or rapidly update with new turn of events, editing it is never more than two clicks away.


Professional Only benefits:

Ignore List: Allows users to keep track of who they are ignoring, and control this option via a list.

Additional Moderation Commands: The ability to add/edit the sticky notice through the shoutbox.

Extended Instance Options: Allows you to have separate notices per instance, set usergroup settings for individual instances, and even set unique staff permissions for each individual instance.

Expanded Context Menus: Lets your member/staff use the context menu to add/update the sticky note, Ban and Unban users, Ignore/Unignore users and prune individual user shouts.

No idea, they could try another browser I suppose.

With this mod installed I have the following issue:

On the Page of the User Settings (www.myurl.com/settings/) this message is shown:

"Invalid Page URL. If this is an error and the page should exist, please contact the system administrator and tell them how you got this message."

If I disable the Mod then the link still works.

Any ideas?

Thank for your help!

I'm unable to replicate either of these issues. Please provide me with URLs and forum accounts so I can check them out in person.

Got worst now in VB503
http://screencast.com/t/yFGamiLOZI
I get this error 500 then it disappears and a few seconds later the text appears.
It takes twice as long now for text to show up in the box and still have to clear the input box every time as well.

I have just had from quite a few members that they never see the shoutbox if they are logged in. While they are logged out they can see it but of course can't use it. As soon as they log in they lose it completely. I have used one of the members credentials to test this and in fact it all disappears on log in.

Please fix this. It is a great addition to my forum but like this it is a disadvantage to many.

This is because of the 500 ISE you yourself discovered. Please check your Apache server's error_log file.

On cPanel/WHM systems, this is located in /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log though your system may vary.

I am unable to replicate this issue on your site or on my local test board. Please provide me with the credentials of a user that is affected by this issue.

In that case you'll need to find the error log yourself or contact your host - you may need to Google to find out where 500 Internal Server Error messages are logged for your system & web server.
