Re: [BETA]Ajax Shoutbox

It's a really good shoutbox mod, less bloated than mChat - but I've ended up removing it yesterday. It desperately needs the delete shouts added seeing as permissions are there for it to be used. And only allowing a certain limit of shouts to be stored in database table (trims old ones away after a set limit) is a real must, otherwise you have to manually go into table using phpMyAdmin to delete old shouts.

How comes you based user permissions on User Roles and not Usergroup Permissions. As there is no option using User Roles to show it to guests or let them use it.

Because the extension is simply still in development. The next beta will contain a delete function, but implementing simply costs time.

If you attempt to delete a post error:

Code: Select all

The controller must be a callable (Array(0 => Object(paul999\ajaxshoutbox\controller\main_controller), 1 => delete) given).

Don't use the development release. The delete function is still in development and not working yet.

Both chat mods are different and will appeal to different users. While mChat is far more feature packed this is still a very good shoutbox when finished for those wanting something more basic offering less options. It also uses Ajax, does mChat use JavaScript. I have used it before but not sure if it's Ajax or Java based

I tried it out

I found that in Chrome, Firefox the messages when posted to the shoutbox appears within seconds]

I found that in IE11 the messages when posted to the shoutbox just don't appear, if you REFRESH using the "recirculate" icon at the top of the IE browser they then appear but this applies to all messages in IE11 not just your own, did anybody else use IE11 to test this please? :D

BTW great great permission system in place there, allows you to choose who views it, who posts, who is allowed to use BBcode etc, very impressive indeed!!

Can't wait to see next steps (->delete function).
I like Ajax Shoutbox, it's simple and easy to use.

The cause was not IE11, but wrong cookie settings at my board in combination with a missing SID in some form. It should work now fine at my demo board.

I spotted a problem with this other day downloading it and installing. You changed the delete error message to a pop upbox. But when I was logging out forum and trying to log back in again. At times that same Error box was being displayed (while still logging me in). Think it shows up when logging out as well.

I know the delete function doesn't work, did you read what I actually said?

I have been following the mod and installed it before the change was made with delete button now showing an error "pop-up box" instead of showing an "error page" like before with a path name displayed on it. I'm simply pointing out in-case he's unaware of this with latest changes made. That the error pop-up box is also getting shown at times when you login or logout forum.
