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.

Hm.. can´t remove it completly, because it does not save the changes than.

I have now tried the following settings:

%X
%I:%M %p

Did not work.

Sorry, but can you describe more exactly what to do?

EDIT: Had to remove this Plugin, as it caused issues in 5.3.0 (and lower) when I use the "Turn off site" function.

See this thread over on vbulletin.com - https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/foru...or-has-occured

Look at posts 168, 169 and 170:
https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/show...ff#post2576155

just the way it is, it's not really an "error" per se - I just live with it, but if you wish to eliminate the error, turn off all DBTech hacks before turning off your forum, and then turn them back on afterwards.

I turn my forum off only when upgrading anyway, and that is a rather fast process these days, so having this "error screen" as opposed to "the forums are now closed" is a definite inconvenience, but a manageable one.

Yes just go to its settings. Admin CP / DBTech - vbShout / Instance Management
Edit
Then change the Title.

I do wish that with this, and all other DbTech mods, that whenever anything at all is updated/changed that you would simply assign it a new version number, rather than designating it a "hot fix" and retaining the same version number.

The subtlety of this "hot fix" approach is lost when we have multiple forums running, or even just one forum, and need to ascertain quickly whether we are running your latest version.

Strange - when I updated to 5.3.1 even though I touched nothing, my Shoutbox under
DBTech - vBShout / Chat Room Management
had turned itself to "No" for Active so it was off.

I thought there was some incompatibility issue with 5.3.1 when shouts were not working, but it was simply that the app had turned itself off.
