Can't edit shouts anymore. Not sure if this just happened since I updated to 1.41 but either way, I can't edit or delete any shouts anymore. Help please.

I can see the edit button and the "load moderator options" button but when I click on either, nothing happens.

NM. It seems to be skin related. I have a Holiday skin where editing shouts will not work. But when I switch to my normal skin, the edit and delete shouts works again.

Thanks

Is there a better way to install this on a IPS hosted site than dealing with FTP uploads?

Shoutbox ought to be a core feature of IPB... it's too damn cool.

its too resource hungry for that. for a short time, until some tweaks were made, it was not allowed on any ips hosted sites.

Q#1 Is there any way to bring the shoutbox all the way to the top? Members keep mistaking the shoutbox for the search box...if it was all the way to the top it might be easier for those who search.

Q#2 A while back I somehow changed the text input box from right to below the shoutbox but I can't see how I did it and would like it back where it was but can't find the setting for it.

Thanks

No, it didn't work even before I added the extender


I'll try uninstalling the entire thing and then reinstalling

ETA: did uninstall and fresh install and still not working :/

If like me look into issue i can but do need root admin username/password and will need ftp username and password plus your forum web address and any useful stuff might be needed send via PM.

Yes you can turn tab off with in Admin CP depending if using the Pro Plus menu system or default Menu system will depend on how turn off but the default way is

Admin CP - System - Applications & Modules - Shoutbox - edit - Tab Restrictions

The Pro Menu way is Admin CP - Other Apps - Pro Menu - More Menu - Visibility - untick all

Request!

Can you add an option to have the "bot" give out auto-responses to specific inputs? For instance, at a phpbb site that I own, I have a chatbox bot that replies instantly to ?fact, replying with a random fact from a list that I have saved in the ACP. It works with ?rules, where when a member enters that, it prompts the bot to reply with a link to the rules. I also have it so if you say "hello bot", it will reply with a clever response such as "hello [user], how is your day?"

It's a fairly simple concept, and is one of the funnest features on our site. I am migrating it to ip.board soon, but I really do not want to lose our bot. I have an active ip.board site now, and the members often wish that we had the bot that is used on our sister phpbb site.

Thanks for the consideration!

Hi

how can you display the avatars bigger?

Shoutboxversion 1.41

The class being used there to define the size is

.ipsUserPhoto_icon 

which is located in the main style .. problem is the developer uses the class provided by IPS versus making a new one for the application .. and changing the value will most likely cause avatars to be altered in other locations as well ..

I suggest finding what template is being used ... alter that class to something unique .. and add that class to the style

Ok to do what asking will need few edits depending on size like it to be first please do following

ADMIN CP - LOOK FEEL - SKIN - EDIT - SKIN_SHOUTBOX - SHOUT_ROW

FIND :

<if test="$this->settings['shoutbox_show_photos']"><td style='width: 1%; white-space: nowrap;'>{$d['photo']}</td></if>

REPLACE :

<if test="$this->settings['shoutbox_show_photos']"><td style='width: 1%; white-space: nowrap;'><img src='{$this->memberData['pp_small_photo']}' alt="{$this->memberData['members_display_name']}{$this->lang->words['users_photo']}" class='ipsUserPhoto ipsUserPhoto_medium photo' /></td></if>

To change size might need change ipsUserPhoto_medium photo there be different css with in ipb_styles like following

.ipsUserPhoto_large { max-width: 90px; max-height: 90px; }
.ipsUserPhoto_medium { width: 50px; height: 50px; }
.ipsUserPhoto_mini { width: 30px; height: 30px; }
.ipsUserPhoto_tiny { width: 20px; height: 20px; }
.ipsUserPhoto_icon { width: 16px; height: 16px; }
just change one works for you.
