Is there no way to set guest viewing? Thanks.

One more thing I've noticed. When someone uses the '/me' function the 'ban' option next to their shout is gone.

Mind you I am not complaining, just pointing these things out for the benefit of the creator.

This mod really slowed my forum down, to the point it where it was unusable. Sorry dude.

it seems yes it was... especially if you have onlined users 100+ but still I have to investigate further.  ;D

How I can dele some part of history file? I thing that is this that make the forum slowed! If the history.tct was reset x in x time was great, keeping some lines, the last ones  :D

I cant seem to get passed the Shoutbox loading....

I have this same problem. It says shoutbox is loading... And then doesn't.

try to chmod yshout.php to 755.  ;)

Thanks man.
Nice work.

Me and my buddy were playing around and she banned me.  We tried /banuser -u Riotblade and it said that I was unbanned but I wasn't.  Is there any other way to manage this?

Also, I see that it gets stuck at loading whenever I go to another page besides the main page.  This only occurs with the latest update of Firefox :(

Thanks

I have not installed it yet but in a demo, it is a vertical shoutbox. Is a horizontal version available? If not, please tell me how to change it to horizontal shoutbox. Thank you in advance.

Gobo

by default its horizontal

in the demo i put its modified to be a vertical one

Hello again.

After using it for a couple of hours without problems i notice that connection to db are overloaded and in a few minutes a got the SMF message "Connection Problems
Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later."

My Server Status report are:
Processes by CPU:     php (17) 88.3%, (other) (3) 0.0%
Memory usage:    68.273% (1415436k / 2073192k)
Swap: 0.398% (8148k / 2048276k)
MySQL processes
Total processes:    3 (2 sleeping, 1 running, 0 locked)

I will try other ShoutBox, maybe a lighter one.

Bottom Line: Nice work, it install and unistall very very easily and looks great. With me works on SMF 1.1.1 default theme and PHP 4.4.4.

Cheers

Hi! Nice work BTW!

I installed this and it didnt work it just says
Shout Box

...loading shoutbox...

so when I tryed uninstalled it, it still showed
Shout Box

...loading shoutbox...

and I deleted the package to see if it would go away but its still up there and it shows 2 shoutboxes that both say loading shoutbox. so how do I get them off?

Be careful with playing around like that. I don't know why it will not actually unban u.
Anyway tell the admin to type /banlist in the chat then tell the admin to click on your username and it will unban you. If it doesnt work ask nneonneo

@DarioX: If you get a writeLine aborted error, it's probably PHP being unable to write the chat file. Try to chmod the yshout/chats folder to 777.

@<Anyone with speed/efficiency problems>: If it slows down significantly, I recommend getting a PHP-accelerator (eAccelerator, Turck, etc. will work fine; this has been tested on eAccelerator but any non-broken caching extension should work). This script is called very often, and with hundreds of members this can be many times a second. A PHP accelerator will ensure that it runs very fast (FYI my personal benchmarks suggest that you would get a 80% speed increase _at least_ over a non-accelerated installation). If you can't install an accelerator, then I'm afraid you will have to use a different shoutbox, as the AJAX functionality does demand a fair bit of processing power, I suppose.

@Miraploy: Guest posting is disabled for a few reasons; mainly it is because it is harder to track guests (though I guess I could use base36 IPs like other shoutboxes). If you want that, you might be better off with a different shoutbox.

@Mark Thomas: This behaviour is intentional. It results from the way "/me" shouts are written to file.

@Riotblade: I'm pretty sure the command is "/banuser u Riotblade" (no "-" before the "u"), so that might be the problem...I'm not 100% sure though.

@OrangeStar: Did it say "Test Failed" on any installation/uninstallation? I highly doubt that SMF's package manager would insert the code twice unless there is some sort of bug in the PM or my mod install file.
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

Great mod.  I like the way it places itself inside the user box by default.  One thing, I fall under that "<Anyone with speed/efficiency problems>" category.  Not so much that the forum slows down but users running on dial-up experience a slowdown.  This is because of the constant 50 to over a 1000 bytes moving without doing a single thing other than having the window open.  As soon as you minimize the user box, thus effectively closing the shout box, the bandwidth draw drops down to zero.  Is there anyway to change the SB so that it only refreshes every 10-15 seconds?

Thanks.

i saw a feature on the IPB ajax shoutbox which could be helpful here if it can be implemented

If the user is idle for more than 1 minute, the shoutbox shutsdown displaying a message saying u have been idle for over 1 min and a button saying "click here to resume"

could come in handy
