First topic message reminder :

This is one of the biggest projects I've worked on in awhile; a fully customizable shoutbox. The shoutbox runs off it's own code alongside the fa_database, so it will work even if the default chatbox does not.. You can use it as a public shoutbox, or private for staff members. Wink


It features :

  • WYSIWYG Formatting buttons with bbcode support
  • The ability to have the shoutbox take up the whole screen
  • Title bar notifications
  • Live chatting with auto-refresh
  • Command lines ( press the help button(?) for more info )
  • Clean message layout inspired by the Nodebb Shoutbox by Schamper

More features will be added in the future thanks to member suggestions and feedback. Smile


Creating a new table

To get started, we need to create a table for our database. If you haven't setup the database yet, read this topic.

Go to your database, and click "new table" to add a new table. Paste the code below and click submit.
Code:
[table id="fmd_chat" class="database_table"][tr][td]User[/td][td]Avatar[/td][td]Message[/td][/tr][tr id="shout_u1-1424221656927" class="db_chat_row"][td]1:Ange Tuteur:Thank you[/td][td]http://i38.servimg.com/u/f38/19/06/98/92/roa10.png[/td][td]Thank you for installing the FMD Shoutbox. For assistance or questions feel free to open a topic on the [url=http://fmdesign.forumotion.com/f8-questions]forum[/url].[/td][/tr][/table]


Installation

The first thing we need to install is the style of the shoutbox. Go to Administration Panel > Display > Colors > CSS stylesheet and paste the following code.
Code:
/* --- START FMD CHAT --- */
#fmd_chatbox { color:#666; font-size:12px; background:#EEE; border:1px solid #CCC; border-radius:3px; padding:3px 6px; margin:6px auto; width:95%; }

You can change the CSS above to fit with your forum theme, and share it with members if you like !! Very Happy


Next go to Administration Panel > Modules > JavaScript codes management and create a new script.

So the shoutbox functions properly you need to replace YOUR_PID by your table's PID. You can find the PID by going to your database, click on the fmd_chat table, and copy the PID from the header.

After you've made this modification, you can save the script. To make sure the installation was successful, go to your forum index and write a message into the shoutbox. If it pops up shortly after sending, then you now have a working shoutbox !!


Configuration

At the very top of the shoutbox script you will see a set of options. These options can be modified to change how your shoutbox acts. Read on for an explanation of each option. Wink

pid : The pid is necessary for the functioning of the shoutbox. Without it, you wont be able to store or send messages.

char_limit : This is the character limit for messages. By default it is set at 750 characters, you can increase or decrease this amount. It's important to include a limit due to the character limitation of messages. ( 65,000 characters )

msg_max : This is the total amount of messages that display in the shoutbox at once. By default it is set at 50 messages.

msg_del : This is the amount of messages that are automatically deleted after the msg_max limit has been reached. By default 10 messages are deleted.

timeout : This is the amount of time before auto-refresh is disabled. This feature helps prevent extra requests to the server, and members appearing active when they left their browser unattended. Here is an explanation on how it works :

Each unit (1) is equal to 5 seconds. So if we wanted to have auto-refresh disabled after 1 minute, we would put 12. By default after 5 minutes has passed of inactivity, auto-refresh is disabled.

5 seconds multiplied by 60, equals 300 seconds. ( 5 minutes )

It is possible to set this limit very high to eliminate the timeout.

public_chat : This option allows you to show the shoutbox to guests. By default it is disabled, but if you want to enable this option, set the value to 1.

0 = disabled
1 = enabled

title : This allows you to change the title of the shoutbox. By default it's "shoutbox"

mods : A list of members that you want to have access to moderation commands such as /clear. It takes an array of user IDs. By default you're the only moderator, to add more members, simply add their user ID. Make sure to separate each ID by a comma.

Example :
Code:
mods : [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8],

banned : A list of members who are restricted from sending messages. It reacts the same as the mods. By default, guests are prohibited from seeing the shoutbox commands.

timezone : The timezone is not calculated by a server, so we have to set the timezone manually. By default it's set to -5 (-0500 UTC). Change this to the timezone offset of your board.

rights : This allows you to show a small back link to our forum. If you don't want to display it, set the value to 0.

plugins : This allows you to install plugins developed by other developers, or yourself.. Make sure that the code installed is between the curly braces to prevent errors !


Special thanks and information

Over time I'll work on adding more functionality to the shoutbox. Think of this as a beta release so we can get a full scale test. If you notice any bugs, have feedback, or suggestions, then feel free to let us know below ! This project will be open from now on, so anyone will be able to contribute to help make this shoutbox better ! ( you can find the source on github too )

Lastly, I would like to thank everyone who was involved in the project, providing feedback and chatting in the box. Also thanks to @JScript for giving me feedback and the idea of using topics as a database, and @_twisted_mods_ for providing ideas such as the 8ball, as well as breaking the shoutbox numerous times.

No not the groups, the section. The sections permissions seem to be the problem.

Brandon, everything is set as it should. But the fuckin' problem is still there. I noticed that it's also happening here, on FMD. Sad 
Anyway, I think I will use the avacweb chat. Can you please provide me with some themes for it?

Actually there is a topic there on avacweb with some links for css files. The problem is that those css files aren't anymore on the avacweb server. Sad I found some themes by searching on google, but I don't like them. Sad

My database of shout-box deletes itself. Any help?

Edit: Oh, I guess i figured it out. Database post harms itself. I couldn't find any solution for this.
