rotfl… I've never heard that one before.
@Jerx, do you have any idea how hard it is to talk to you without calling you a jerx? ;)
Anyways, it is a planned feature… but probably not for a couple months.
I'm working my way down my mod list updating mods and releasing new versions.

But I decided not to prune anything for Beta 7 because I'm going to have a logs page where you can view past posts… so I don't want anything deleted yet.

But you can clean out the chat with a db query similar to this:

Code: Select all

DELETE FROM phpbb_chat WHERE time < 1177625700
of course change the timestamp to whatever you need it to be.
That timestamp will delete everything that is older than April 24th.

Hey Groove,

Firstly, I love the mod. It's a great addition to my forum. However, I've noticed that it current displays users flagged as "do not show online" in the online list in the shoutbox. Can we get a fix on that, or some direction on how to patch it up?

Secondly, my forum is filled with a lot of trolls. I've noticed that thusfar the chatbox hasn't cleared any entries from the database, but rather just from the view entry. Will it eventually begin clearing away old posts from the database? I ask because within the first couple hours of adding this I'm up to 1050 shouts in the db already...

It would not have been the first time, someone called me a jerk. :D

I just requested pruning, because it was not listed on your roadmap. For the beginning the db query is good enough for me.

I am really looking forward to upcoming releases. Thanks for your hard work!

Greetings, GroovePlugs. Try as I might, I can't get this mod to work. After doing all the uploading and editing, I keep getting this result when I try to access chat_install.php:

Code: Select all

Information

NOT_AUTHORIZED
Any idea what little gremling might be causing my problems?

EDIT: I've tried setting all the permissions on the chat_install.php file to 777, so it's not a permission issue.

you have to be the board founder to be able to run that file.
So make sure you are logged in and you have board founder status.

I would like to say Thanks for this shoutbox. After a bit of playing I got it working with my modified subsilver2 style and it looks flipping great.

I did have to add a bit of code, in chat_body.html, to stop the Online List going over to the left if there were no shouts and a guest was viewing.

Code: Select all

			<!-- IF S_USER_LOGGED_IN -->
				<tr>
					<td align="center" class="cat nav" width="85%">
						<form name="text" id="text" method="post" action="javascript:void(0);" onsubmit="handle_send('add', this)" autocomplete="off">{L_MESSAGE}: 
							<input type="text" tabindex="1" name="message" id="message" class="inputbox" size="28" />
							<input class="button1" type="submit" name="submit" value="{L_SUBMIT}" />
						</form>
					</td>
					<td align="center" class="cat nav" width="15%">{L_ONLINE_LIST}</td>
			<!-- ELSE -->
							<tr>
					<td align="center" class="cat nav" width="85%">
					</td>
					<td align="center" class="cat nav" width="15%">{L_ONLINE_LIST}</td>
			<!-- ENDIF -->
Maybe you have a better solution or is it because I have missed someting somewhere else? You can take a look HERE

I Appologise for my lack of knowledge, I have had no PC training at all so I'm learning as I go.

Anyway thanks for the mod, it really helped me out. Will keep my members quiet for awhile. :lol:

Internet Explosion makes my head hurt (i.e. 6/7)
Take a look at the shoutbox on my forum and see if it's having the same issue… if not, than I think I know what will fix it.

No clue. I have an old shoutbox that has an edit button. I was just curious. :)
