worked fine for me .... after I struggled with my template set (being a newbie). I think a small example (even if the shoutbox is not at the right location) will be useful.

Secondly, I increased the size of the submit box : a bit small maybe ? :)

thx

I succesfully installed the mod, but I can't see it yet. Do I have to manually edit some of the templates and where can I find more information about it? (Using dutch RC2, classic and modern theme).

Grudge

Installation instructions should say when you install it - and it's been asked many times before. You need to edit the index.template.php file of whatever templates you want to add it to, and add the following functions:
smfshout();

An example (Incase you have trouble working with quotes) may be:

<table>
<tr>
<td>
', smfshout(), '
</td>
</tr>
</table>


Insert that within the HTML in the template and it will work. Obviously you'll need to adjust the HTML to fit your needs

doesn't this work with other language? my forum has chinese language, but it doesn't work. it works when i change the language to english though.

Grudge

It should do if you put the language entries manually into Modifications.chinese.php. It won't do it for you. Just copy the contents it added to Modifications.english.php to your language of choice.

Maybe it's a good idea to automate that. For example: while installing the mod, you get the message: 'The language files need to be updated. Please select which languages you want to modify'. And then a multiple selectbox.

an example would have been cool, but it all worked out :). The SMF template system was easy for me to learn, http://www.raclan.org/forums/ I put mine to the left of my boards. probably not the most popular spot for it :P but thats what my members wanted.

It works perfectly now.

Would it  be possible to have also the smileys ? Even within a popup ?

My problem with shoutbox is that after following all the steps included in the installation documentation, the shoutbox shows an error with the message:
      'Unable to load the 'shout' template. '

Can anybody help me?

Thnx in advance

Jerry

make shure the shout.template.php is in your themes/default :)

Thnx... I was sure I had the shout.template in my Theme directory, but I had some problems with the name of the directory (I had it duplicated under another directory) and that was the problem, because my themes settings where pointing to the old directory where y didn't have the shout.templates file

Thnx

the shoutbox eat a lot of bandwith ?

Jerry

no, not that I notice since it only loads once when you open the page you have it installed on. think iof it as a never ending post I guess :P

I shall address this, it should just be that no install actions are defined

Please remember to always make regular backups of your sources and database before installing mods, especially beta versions. 

Package Manager - Install Actions
Install Actions for archive shout_v1_211f.tar.gz:
There are no installation or uninstallation actions defined! 

Grudge

That makes no sense at all! I removed all of the specific install actions just so it would work! Can you do a hard refresh (Ctrl + F5), and also delete it off your server, check it's not showing it as present then reupload it?
