You have likely done this, but I forgot so I'll suggest it.

You have to go to each usergroup and turn on each option before it will show up.

The instructions are so vague that most of the users of this shoutbox seem to figure out the solution themselves for most of the problems. looking at the writeup for this mod I thought it would be MOD of the year but the work around for all the problems made me change my mind regarding this being the best Mod on VB 4.

Atleast now can someone help me displaying it on my Forum?

hridayath,
I'm no expert... yet let's see.
What are you having problems with?
1- upload contents of 'upload' folder to your forum
2- install new product with the attached .xml file
3- To add the "<!-- {SHOUTBOX} -->" do it like this:

Admin CP >> Styles & Templates >> Style Manager >> drop-down menu "Edit Templates"
Then, scroll down on the list until you see Forum Home Templates, then double-click on it.
Below that, a template called "FORUMHOME" will appear.
Click on that, then click on the "Customize" button on the right (or on the "Edit" button).

Then, here was my edit (there might be a better way to do it... this is what I did and it works)

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Hope that helps!

Question:
In what template should I add:
<!-- {SHOUTBOX} -->

So the shoutbox shows in the CMS home?
At the moment, it displays perfectly in the Forum home.

Suggestions?

Thanks for the help and hard work!!

This would likely be a permissions issue. Remember you have to manually set everything in vb4. To get it at the top you just want to use the Advertising Manager. AdminCP>Advertising>Add New Ad . It will show at the top of all 3 products - the CMS, Blog, and Forum.

Thanks for the reply and help Videx!
So I go to Add New Ad... Select "Below Navbar"
What code should I drop in the "Ad HTML" box?

Please excuse my n00bness....
Help much appreciated!

Oh dear. No, I'm the one that must beg forgiveness. I think. Actually, I was thinking of a different mod where I slipped the call into an ad block. But really, I don't suppose you couldn't call the shoutbox that way. I don't know. For mine, I just followed the instructions and inserted the call below the navbar line.

Thanks for the reply Videx!

I placed it below {vb:raw navbar}, yet it still only shows in the forums.
What template should I edit in order to have the shoutbox displayed everywhere on the site?

Here's what I have at the moment (partial copy/paste, with the pertinent info)

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

==========

My other query, if somebody could please shed some light:
Unregistered / Not Logged In users are not able to see any of the messages.
The shoutbox displays in the window, yet it contains no messages.

I went to the Unregistered / Not Logged In group, and set the permissions to:
GCBOS Permissions
Can View GCBOS
YES
Can Talk in GCBOS
YES


Any ideas?

THANKS!
