Eric Allione got a reaction from tAPir in [IF] IPB Shoutbox
I would agree with you on this normally, but in this case it's basically the same code as shoutbox 1.3.7 and is just another upgrade. It's just called 'Beta' because some of the advertised features (like a built-in notification system) have not been developed yet.
I am running Beta2 and it is working perfectly. However, I wouldn't try running any 3rd party shoutbox hooks.

Let's keep this topic clean, guys, please. The current discussion is going no-where but back and forth. This is a support topic, so let's keep it as such.
I'm sure JLogica will answer your questions about 3.4 when he actually has a chance to look at 3.4. (which isn't even released yet).
Eric Allione reacted to DeRealDeano in Download: Shoutbox
Come on guys, lets stick to the topic this thread is for support not a back and forth battle on this or that. Development is costly and to be honest $12.50 a year for a mod that we all use and like isn't expensive at all, lets be real. When Micheal had it he choose not to charge and he ended up pay the price for that and now that Larry took it over its only fear if he want to charge a little extra to compensate for his time and dedication.
Eric Allione reacted to Andy Rixon in [IF] IPB Shoutbox
What? Your charging for Shoutbox I can understand why your charging for this, but why have the price so damn high. Many of us like me rely on shoutbox for instant messaging on our websites, and I can not even afford the $12.50 offer you have going right now. Personally, I'd lower it to $6 with $6 annual renewal, if I had taken this application over and decided to charge (Which I wouldn't of) that's what I would of charged.
Never mind, just noticed you still have a free version as well. I should really learn not to jump the gun sometimes :(

I remember when Michael (not the "shoutbox" Michael, the guy from Devfuse) was first developing his amazing donations app, people were complaining about it not being free. They were using it to make money with it and still wanted the coder to do it for free!! (I got enough donations to cover the price I paid for it the first week, by the way).
I'd like to remind everyone that most of us live in capitalist society where we actually pay for the time others invest on the products and services that we use. Anyone whinging about shoutbox becoming a paid product, well... guess what? you could have bought the copyright to develop it and support it for the rest of your life (support it for free too, now I'd like to see you do that!) or do what you wanted with it. You could, yes, but you DIDN´T.
All it took was to talk to the previous owner (who, by the way, spent HUNDREDS of hours just supporting it and got very little for it in return except users providing negative feedback and requesting new features all the time, and nobody every suggesting that it become a paid product...) and reach an agreement.
Now, you didn't do that but you still want Shoutbox to be what you want and not what the new owner wants? er... I don´t think that's very realistic.
I've been around the ipb community for a while and have seen many coders come and go. Many mods come and go too... they worked fine for one version, then stopped working for the next and they were never updated. Needless to say, the mods that are most likely to become "abandonedware" are the free ones.
Shoutbox is IPB´s most popular app ever. Some of the new features look promising. JLogica has made some free apps and thus contributed to the community also.
We need to move forward...
Eric Allione reacted to 3DKiwi in License expired, how to download old version I paid for?
Perhaps let this serve as a wake up call that you should have a well thought up folder structure for saving important IPB etc programs and files plus a duplicate of everything on an external storage device.
Eric Allione reacted to Adriano Faria in Download: Shoutbox
I don't know mate... AFAIK, free Shoutbox dies here, since we're having many changes on editor stuff for 3.4, like BBCodes, etc.
I will for sure make it compatible with 3.4.0 to be used on my board and probably will release the edits as a tutorial on my board. Understand your point of view, sure... Go on with your paid version; I will keep the old one alive; at least on my board.
PS: not that I like; actually I hate it. But my (damn) users like it.

Updated. The latest version is now compatible with Shoutbox 1.3.7
I highly doubt that this hook is causing these issues with your site. If you can somehow prove it then I will be interested. The hook itself doesn't ever even touch the database at all. The issue that you could be running into is that you installed this hook with the wrong version of shoutbox. It overwrites one of the core files in the shoutbox app and thus it has to be updated with each new version of shoutbox that is release. Using the wrong version of this app with your shoutbox would very likely cause problems. Try downloading the latest version and see if that helps. I am sorry for all of the trouble you had with the hook!
Eric Allione reacted to Aussie Cable in Smush.it
I have been testing this app and there are a few things that bother me with it.
1. It does not refresh the page when I click on 'Smush All', so it times-out and we are redirected to index.php due to mod_rewrite
2. It does NOT close mySQL connections properly (I have documented this in detail)
If these 2 major issue's can be fixed, this will be a great app.
Another thing is I would like you to add the screenshots of where this app is, in 'Forums', 'Smush It' >> 'Smush All' etc, members need a better description of how it works within the ACP.
Here is my screenshot of where the app is, and please note that when in testing, the '0bytes' is only due to uninstalling, then re installing the app, there still was around 7 images left, but I simply could not get past them (no idea why, maybe timeout constraints of my php or Apache.......
EDIT: I see that you have updated the screenshots

This is a modification of IP.Shoutbox that adds a small audio notification whenever there is a new post in the shoutbox. It is very useful for active shoutboxes or if you just want to ensure that you never miss a message. It is especially useful when you are browsing the web on another tab but still wish to monitor shoutbox activity.
Plays a sound on every new shout! Users have 100% control over volume level with View 1 Enabled Second Volume Display setting (Configured via ACP) which allows for a "Toggle Only" volume control to save space on the shoutbox interface. Third Volume Display setting (Configured via ACP) allows for a single button click volume toggle. Volume levels are attached to the account so once it is set it will stay with that user every time they view the shoutbox. So if they mute it, it will remain muted. Volume level updated via AJAX for a application like interaction (no refreshing while changing volume) Page Title notifications of new posts when you are on a different tab (Similar to Facebook Chat Notifications) Control whether an Audio Alert is played when you submit a shout (Hear sound for your own shouts)
Requirements:IPB 3.x.x IP.Shoutbox 1.1.3+
If you have any feedback on ways I could improve the application please let me know!
