phpBB 2.x Shoutbox 1.0 (AJAX)

Post by DionDev »

phpBB 2.x Shoutbox 1.0 is a simple PHP and AJAX shoutbox script that is fully integrated with the phpBB forum system. Once you have installed it you can place it in any of your phpBB forum template files.


* Tested to work with phpBB 2.x.
* It uses AJAX. This means that every time a new shout is posted by someone it will instantly display in the shoutbox without the page having to be refreshed.
* It is fully customizable. You can allow guests to post, select the number of shouts to display, and even change the name of the shoutbox.
* Only takes about 2 minutes to install. With very simple instructions in a small text file, you will have a unique shoutbox on your forum up and running in no time.
* It automatically inherits the style of the forum. If your forum has multiple style options, it uses the style the user has selected.

This mod is great. So easy to install and works a dream on my forum.

One piece of feedback I have been given by the members of my forum is asking if the shoutbox can play a sound when a new message appears (msn style). I have hunted around the web for about an hour but cannot find anywhere that can help with this.

Are there any php experts who can explain what code I need to add and where I need to add it?

Best Wishes,
