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.

Moderator Edit:


Due to changes in the Javascript Structure in vBulletin 5.6.4, this addon was not working. Below are steps to resolve this issue:

Shout is looking for a .js file. But it isn't here.

1. go to : https://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jque...ry.tmpl.min.js
2. copy code and paste it in notepad
3. save it as : jquery.tmpl.min.js
4. copy via ftp to ---> board/js/jquery
5. Reload page and shout is working ( VB 5.6.4)

What does that solve? Does this make vbshout work in 5.6.5 or is that a solution to the smilies list issue posed by LuckyRiver?

I was able to get it running on 5.6.5 with the help of @heugabel suggestions

but when I try to send to a certain user (shout target) I get the error "Error: 200 parsererror"

any idea?

TIA.

From what I can see, these modifications will enable vbshout to work on vb 5.6.5 running something like PhP 7.4
If you try to run it with PhP 8 even with these modifications you'll get a new error,

unexpected_error,Unsupported operand types: string - int

and vbshouts will not load.

I have to do some further checking but on my test forum it seems like vb 5.6.6 made the username of the shoutbox user disappear from the shout. The shout remains but to the left of it the username is no longer there.

When I look at your demo https://vbyilmaz.com/vBShout

I see this

is that how it will be without identifying the username of the user who is making the shout? To the left of each "shout" is a generic face

no username.

Okay this is what I found out.

The Yilmaz new shoutbox.php will allow shoutbox to work with PhP 8.

Without this new file, you will get the
unexpected_error,Unsupported operand types: string - int

error when you try to run shoutbox on PhP8. So the new Yilmaz file SOLVES that error - that error will go away and Shoutbox will run okay now on vb 5.6.5 running PhP 8.

HOWEVER, there is a new issue that has to do with vb 5.6.6 When you run 5.6.6 , the shoutbox username disappears from the left side of the shoutbox,

and there is no way to tell who is making the shout.

Yes, I noticed that too, and if you assign this file to its full path, it will be fixed.

Great work!

On just one of my sites, the core/packages/dbtechvbshout/aop/shouts1.txt
keeps failing to load, and when I look at that file it hasn't been modified in years. The shoutbox works fine, but page source shows this error:

Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 () myforum.com/forums/core/packages/dbtechvbshout/aop/shouts1.txt?v=34947294495928.133&securitytoken=1642433169-95f49972fc0b3612619709343386665cfc6afdaa[/url]



Also when I try to access core/packages/dbtechvbshout/aop/shouts1.txt I get a file not found (missing) error on that site.

I don't know what is different about my installation of shoutbox on that one site that might be causing this error.
