It looks to me like its something with the permissions.

@carlito: so it is solved? Excellent! You may also want to copy or localize the Modifications.english.php file (probably to Modifications.greek.php) to ensure that all the text shows up.
@bobbbb: You have a problem with suexec -- how did you install the mod? Was this the same way you installed SMF? Finally, are there any other errors?
Check out the AJAX Shoutbox (my one and only mod to date :P)
Do you like SMF? Are you using ProBoards, InvisionFree, ActiveBoards or some other web-hosted forum? I can help you convert to SMF (without having to purchase a DB conversion)...contact me [nneonneo {at} gmail *dot* com], and see this topic

It would seem that the shoutbox crashed my server today, I can only assume that it was lots of people logged on at the same time overloaded the server with calls to yshout.php any recommendations?

brianjw

If you mean it crashed your server like you can't access it and can't get to admin panel.. I would manually uninstall it by extracting the file you download and open the xml file via php editor (dreamweaver, frontpage, etc). And that will tell you files and code that was added now open those files and manually remove it, also delete the file from the Packages folder ;)
Then you can request support with it here. ;)

Hope this helps.

@raymond8505: what is the size of your forum? If it is quite large (30+ active members on at some time in the day), then you will want to turn down the refresh rate. It's in yshout/js/yshout.js, near the top, in milliseconds.

Other things to try: get a PHP accelerator (if you can install one), and, if raising the refresh delay beyond 15 seconds (15000 ms) doesn't help, then it probably isn't my script.

Also make sure that in index.template.php that you change the ?Mar42007, to force cache updates in browsers (otherwise they may continue to refresh at the old rate)

Everything is working fine both in firefox and IE, but in IE there is a script error. Trying to debug it with excellent web developer firefox extension  and here is the report:

Line: 151"

error2 Error: $A is not defined
Source File: http://www.skifun.gr/forum/yshout/js/prototype.js [nofollow]

I've been trying to uninstall this shoutbox and Package Manager SAYS it's uninstalled but it's still there and not working.  What did I do?  Or what should I do?  Thank you for any help!

Panic first, figure it out later

nneonneo

@carlito: I have no idea; I've never seen the error and I cannot reproduce it. Any more details about it?
@adelshehadeh: Have you checked the web server error log? The script may be failing to load (also possible: the first block of code is missing which prevents loading; I'd need to take a look at the forum if that was the case)
@skase98: If you installed the shoutbox to another theme then the modifications must be removed manually. Also, did any errors appear during installation?

First of all thanks for quick response. OK, let's try to describe better the problem.

First of all shoutbox is working just fine both in IE and firefox. But (always there is a but) this little error script appears in IE (see attachment). I am using firefox mozilla web developer extension and trying to debug the error. From Web Developer,Tools, Error Console, I am getting the errors I posted above (see attachment also).

Since shoutbox is working fine it is not a great matter. But I am trying to get rid of that annoying IE error script since it spots overall image site. Using final version 1.6, followed the exact instructions to modify the theme template and did not face any error, just this little one. There are not any log errors, checked for web server logs, neither there. Anybody with IE has similar error script ? Any ideas ?

skase98

nneo, thank you for the reply!  I installed it in the default (basic blue) template.  When I added a new template, it didn't appear which worked out fine but if I go back to the default, it's still there.  However, it is not in my package manager list so I'm quite baffled!

I won't allow users to use any other template than the one where it doesn't show so it's more of an oddity than a serious functionality issue.  No one's going to accidentally find it but I want to give the options of other themes for folks with different viewing tastes.

Thank you again!

@carlito: How often can you reproduce the problem? Does it appear on every page load?
@skase98: OK, odd...though it sounds as if there was an error removing the mod. Also, if you installed other mods, that may have prevented correct uninstallation.

Yes nneonneo, everytime. You can reproduce it right now if you wish easily with web developer extension.

I follwoed the instruction here
Also you may check Modifications.english.php (or other languages) for the nneonneos shoutbox code. and make sure that the yshout directory is there in your forum directory. Also make sure you have the new code that was originally for TinyPortal on the modsite for this mod page in your index.template.php (where you want it) :)

Hello nneonneo!

your mod is great! we're transfering a forum from one server to the other, it works fine in the original one, but now i'm trying to install it to the new server, and I got this error.

8: Undefined index: yshout_loading
File: /home/rufenn/public_html/ldb/forum/Themes/Theme_LDB/BoardIndex.template.php (main sub template - eval?)
Line: 348

also, if I tryed your yshout/yshout.php, it give me that error.

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

my board has only your mod installed so far, but it's not on the default theme. I have modifed the theme however reflecting the change.

thx in advance. :)

brianjw

What I would do is uninstall nneonneos shoutbox while you are transfering your server and then when you have completed that install it.

rufen

yeah, that's what I plan to do, but I wanna know what to do if this error pop up, to have as little downtime as possible. (the user are attached to their shoutbox...)

This should fix any errors that are appearing to this shoutbox -
You should use nneonneos shoutbox version 1.06. You should use smf 1.1.2 or 1.1.1.
And make sure everything is installed correctly - meaning nneonneo code in Modifications.english.php, a yshout directory with a bunch of files in it. You may want to reinstall. Then manually install it. Next you are going to want to use the code meant for TinyPortal and place it on the theme anywhere - find this code on the modsite page.
* brianjw wants you to post your sites url anytime you ask for support on anything / or brianjw wants you to put your url in your profile.

rufen

well, tryed today.

created the database, loaded the backup, installed the shoutbox and did put in the code required, same error.

http://www.lendemaindebrosse.net/forum/index.php is my forum index.


brianjw

You need to go to the place where you have put the word shoutbox and under where there is that big space there needs to be this code: <div id="yshout"></div> and you must have the code that goes in the themes index.template.php. (ask nneonneo)
