Modern Shoutbox Style (added in 1.1.0)

Thank you friend. Do you intend to shed some similar version with the Arowchat?

I haven't considered making an Arrowchat-type system as of yet, if that's what you mean.

Yes, exactly. Thanks.

If you can create something and that does not consume a ridiculous amount of processing and queries'm sure the community would be very happy.

Thank you friend.

Firebolt's source code is now available on Github under the MIT license, and I plan to release 1.3.0 within the next few days, featuring a Facebook-like messaging system.

Installed on my site and looks good. Would be nice to have the option to hide/minimise. Nice job mate, i'll be keeping an eye out for updates.

A couple of other improvements that would be nice now that i've played around with it.

1. Admin can change user timeout limit, i changed manually but would be nice to be able to do it from the shout if possibe?
2. Would like the option of having the shoutbox show on all pages rather than just Forum Home.

Feedback from my members so far has been positive.
