Project Description

This is the latest version of Inferno vBShout LITE, the free version of our Inferno vBShout Pro product (see above link).

Additional Features

Auto-Idle
The auto-idle system will drastically lower server load on sites with many users on at the same time. It allows you to automatically set the user to "idle" in the shoutbox, meaning the shoutbox will load shouts once, then idle the user until the click the unidle button or make a shout. Afterwards they will idle as normal (as set in the ACP).

Shoutbox Advanced Optimised Protocol
The Shoutbox AOP is a brand new feature that when turned on will dramatically cut server resources/bandwidth used by the shoutbox. Instead of the shoutbox refreshing every X seconds to check if there is new data, it will know when there is new data and only refresh then, meaning when there is no activity in the shoutbox, no resources will be consumed, or bandwidth.

Shoutbox Low Level Logging
The shoutbox low level logging system will provide you with a log of shout edits, deletes, bans, unbans, notices and remove notice commands. This will help you keep track of commands being used in the shoutbox. This can be turned off.

Private Message System
When clicking a username in the shoutbox, it will now open a new "tab" (This is a shoutbox tab, not a browser tab). In this tab you will be able to privately chat to the member where only they and you will see the messages. This helps split private chats and the main chat, and you can have as many private chats open as you like!



vBSEO Issues?
If you're encountering issues with vBSEO this is most likely due to the option within vBSEO to "clean html", you do not need to turn this option off, but you will need to change the plugin for vBShout. Go to the Plugin Manager within your ACP, and find the plugin: "Inferno Shoutbox: Deploy Shoutbox". Edit this plugin, and where you see the option "Execution Order", set this to 1 and save, you should no longer encounter issues.


Note
I'll update screenshots soon! 5am here right now...

Enjoy!

Installation instructions are included in the zip file. Read them carefully.
Personally, I'd advise against installing a shoutbox or chatroom until you become more familiar with vbulletin, as these items can seriously affect your site's performance.

Is there anyway to get shoutbox stats so that users can see who has the most shouts?

Make sure your shoutbox is set to on before doing the following.
If you go into the "settings" table and sort by product. You will find a product called _inferno_shoutbox. Int he column called "value" you will find the words array. They dont belong there. You will need to replacement them with their proper #'s.
For editor tools use the following #'s. Add them up to get the total value # you need to put in depending on what options you want on. I use 127.

For bbcode use the following #'s. Add them up to get the total value # you need to put in depending on what options you want on. I use 639.

You will also need to manually input your usergroups. Here you put in the usergroup #'s seperated by the usergroups. Example
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Now go into your vbulletin admin CP > vbulletin options > vbulletin options > backup / restore settings. Please note this is not on the drop down menu its to the left of it.
Now export your vbshout settings and then reimport them. This is how we fixed it our board. I can not guarentee this will work for you but feel free to ask questions.

Slippy, this has saved me! I have changed it so many times now that I'm a pro at it.

YOU RULE!!

It would have been ok if I were able to prevent certain usergroups from using it but all I can do is ban a user after he joined which isn't enough. I am getting a lot of hate posts in the box and I can do nothing about it!

Hello, thanks for making this Add-on, but I'm having trouble using it

Inferno vBShout enables you to place the shoutbox on any page you desire, by default we allow you to place it on the 'index' script of your forum.
Edit the template: FORUMHOME
Find: $navbar
Underneath this add: <!--{%SHOUTBOX%}-->
I have added <!--{%SHOUTBOX%}--> underneath the $navbar in FORUMHOME template.

I still have the template edited the way you guys wanted.

I do not see any shoutbox in my forum.....but I don't really want it there, I want it on my homepage/other pages because I use vbAdvanced CMPS


so I was wondering if I can use this add-on as a module and I can add it to my center column ??

thanks again.....my website is www.gibsrus.com

Hi Inferno,

Regarding Inferno Shout Pro, when the new edition comes out, will you be able to edit archived shouts? Currently, that feature isn't included.

Best
