Hi there,

since i was searching for a easy shoutbox i can not find any good one, so i though lets make one.
Please be nice to me its my first phpBB3 mod :P
I have no release data so its ready when its ready.
There is not yet a download or demo, but we got a screenshot:

Click for full size.

i'm taking feature request , so you like a option that your are missing new is the time to ask :ugeek:

The features I'm thinking of:
  • Prune option, controlled on the acp
  • Refresh button, auto refresh controlled on the acp (you can set the time for refresh)
  • permission who can see the shoutbox, edit etc etc
  • BBcodes , smilies buttons

For the record this is not a ajax chatbox , only a shoutbox like you can compare it with the 2.0.x shoutbox of Niels.

What is/will be the difference between this mod and the AJAX shoutbox with exception of it auto-refreshing?

That this mod not use the ajax function ;)
It used a auto meta refresh that you can adjust on the acp of the shoutbox, i should put today a demo online of it :).

How do you mean ?
And yes i have set the permission that only registered users can use the BBCode, smilies etc.
It will be full compatible whit permissions.
Also I'm thinking about the refresh , i would like to use meta refresh , or did somebody have other ideas ?

Hej Raimon. I tested your shoutbox and the the BBCode thing is really great! But the BBCode also allows me to post full-size images. I think some guys will really love this, but others will find this very annoying to have big images on their board. It's just a thought, but maybe, if this is possible, you could implement an image resizer to avoid this.
Btw, the girl in the picture on your demo board is unfortunately not my girlfriend :P

Raimon, i though it would be nice if you put a bbcode just incase another user need it,
if the bbcode is too much of trouble, just put a smilie, because, i believe lot's of user don't know the exact code for the smilies

@ XToF.be , that not a bad idea , perhaps that i add a image resizer that users can enable if the like to use it , I'm going to think about that.

@ Kojek; the BBCodes are visible ( buttons ) for registered users, you can edit it with the permission , same counts for the smilies (on a pop-up to show all the smilies ) ;)

@ ferra1980: i think I'm going to add a scrollbar , show you can add more shouts per page on the shoutbox :)
