Find
return $chatText.' '; // hack: totally empty responses can break some browsers in the readChat function and replace the line with
return str_replace("\n","\n<hr>",$chatText.' '); // hack: totally empty responses can break some browsers

Hope that helps.

Where is the readchat function located?

@Johnny:
1) Disabling BBC: there are two spots in yshout/yshout.php where the code "[list]" (*with quotes*) is found. Add "[img" (no closing bracket) and whatever other tags you want to disable to *each* instance of the replacing code.
It should look a bit like this
str_replace(array("[list]",[*other replaces*],"[right]","[img")"",$newText));
It will disable images, but please do note that some raw BBC will show through (unless you do some more advanced PHP stuff, like adding preg_replace).
2) readChat is in yshout/yshout.php.
3) Type /help impersonate to get help on that command. [/list][/list]

How can I change the position of the shoutbox? I would like to place it under the top horizontal menu (  Forum Help Search Profile My Messages Calendar Members Logout) and just above the forums.
In index.template.php, try to locate the <div id="yshout"> piece of code (in between //YSHOUT HERE and //YSHOUT END so you know where to cut). Move that piece to another location, wrapping it in a div/table/what-have-you if desired. Voila, a moved shoutbox.

that's not sufficient.  you also have to modify the domFunction in index.template.php, to wit:


    var myfunc = new domFunction(function()
    {
        loadChat();
    }, { "yshout":"id"});


to remove all reference to the open/close state of any boxes/areas on the page.

How to Display the Moderators Colors in Shoutbox..

Quote from: Sarke on February 13, 2007, 11:39:19 PM
I have one concern with the this shoutbox.  I've been using it for a few days now, and my logs are filled with "404 /yshout/yshout.php".  I realise that this is how the shoutbox works, but it's quite significant.

Just today, I have about 115,000 error messages logged because of the 404 that the shoutbox uses, and that's about 87% of the total hits on my site (today).  Put another way, the amount of requests increased by about 650%.

Isn't there another way of doing this?  Can't the server contact the client when a new shout is made, instead of the client having to check in all the time?

in my /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file, inside the VirtualHost directive for the sites using this shoutbox, i replaced the line
CustomLog logs/my.access.log combined
   with
SetEnvIf Request_URI /yshout/yshout.php shout
CustomLog logs/amber-access_log combined env=!shout

  poof... no more /yshout/yshout.php 404s.

I added my shoutbox to the Boardindex, and it works OK. But the links (history, commands, etc..) open fullsize in the same window, which is really ugly. Like having a href with target="_top" that is. Where can i fix this? Woulöd it be possible to open the shoutbox in a new window? If I create  a new php-file in my theme with the shoutbox-stuff, would it be possible?

@Sarke: The "404" are due to a hack I had to do for Opera. Evidently, if I do not send a 404, but use a 302 (content not modified), Opera will repeatedly close and reopen the shoutbox. So, I had to resort to using 404 to prevent this behaviour. Also, sending the entire content of the shouts is a quick way to waste bandwidth, which is why I chose to use a 404 message (which uses much less bandwidth).

@tsmalmbe: Are you using 1.06? I thought I fixed that...

Thanks for being thorough and replying after such a long time, but you missed my point; a 304 (302 is "found" ;)) would still be logged, and it would still be a request to the server.  This can be very taxing on a server if there are lots of viewers of the shoutbox (as some replies in this thread show).  It is a resource heavy mod because of the short refresh rate.

My point was that it would be better if the server contacted the client instead.  Perhaps have a long timeout period where the client is waiting for info, and then the server can check on it's side if it receives a new shout and if it does send the new info.  If there's no new shout before the timeout period then just send a 404 and the client will send another request that starts a new timeout period.

Basically, put something like this in refreshChats().  I'm just thinking out loud and haven't really tested this, but you know what I mean:

<?php
$start_time time();
while (time() - $start_time 20 && $time == filemtime("$logDir/$chatFile"))
{
sleep(1);
clearstatcache();
}
?>


It would remove the need for a short refresh with the client since the checking would all be done server side.  Something like a timeout period of 60 sec would reduce the number of requests by a factor of 40.

Since you asked so nicely... ;)

In yshout/yshout.php, find:


    $p_class = "";

    if($user['is_admin']) $p_class = ' class="owner"';
    if($user['is_mod']) $p_class = ' class="moderator"';
    $shoutName=$user['name'];
    $userID=$user['id'];
    $writeText = "<p$p_class><em title=\"".time()." | $ip\"><span class=\"shout-timestamp\">[<timeval=".time().">]</span> <a href=\"index.php?action=profile;u=$userID\">$shoutName</a>:</em> $newText</p>\n";


replace with:


    global $user_profile;
    loadMemberData(array($user['id']));
    if (!empty($user_profile[$user['id']]['member_group_color']))
       $color = ' style="color: ' . $user_profile[$user['id']]['member_group_color'] . '"';
    elseif (!empty($user_profile[$user['id']]['post_group_color']))
       $color = ' style="color: ' . $user_profile[$user['id']]['post_group_color'] . '"';
    else
       $color = '';

    $shoutName=$user['name'];
    $userID=$user['id'];
    $writeText = "<p><em title=\"".time()." | $ip\"><span class=\"shout-timestamp\">[<timeval=".time().">]</span> <a href=\"index.php?action=profile;u=$userID\"><span $color>$shoutName</span></a>:</em> $newText</p>\n";



This will make the shoutbox use the forum group colours.

Thanks much.

nneonneo

@DJ: in yshout/yshout.php, change allowGuests to false.
It should read
$allowGuests=false;

if your using tab browsing or have more than one browser/window open with more than one incident of the shout box ..it will say that in one incident. close the second incident.
