Afternoon,

Just a quick heads up to anyone that uses our shoutbox. We are purchasing a paid upgrade later this afternoon to give us a better box. I'll link the download in below us but basically, the shoutbox will dissapear for a short period of time and come back with the following;

- Ability to ignore users
- Ability to ignore users posting in the shoutbox
- Thread updates (not sure if people would want this or not)
- The ability to BAN people from the box
- Smilies at the touch of a button instead of manually coding them in.
- The ability to change the colour of the font you want to use.

Link to the add-on > https://xenforo.com/community/resources/taigachat-pro-realtime-chat-shoutbox.1224/

It shouldn't take more than a small period of time to add and make live to the site, but if the shoutbox dissapears for a short period of time, it's not that we have removed it or banned it (god forbid).

Enjoy!

The smilie function will be so useful for myself. Cheers Rad/TB.

Being able to change font colour will surely lead to instant enemies.

Yes this is the biggest plus point for me. I can never remember the code for the smileys so I don't bother using them.

(Plus the ban ability ;))

I was reading through the link you provided.... hypothetically could I change the Box Message of the Day to a particular quiz that day/evening?

Eg. LGQ at 10:15pm, tonight in the Box.

Probably more of a question for TB that, but I'd presume that's something that can work.

You can change your font colour anyway, just use BB Code...

Shoutbox has been upgraded but I MUST STRESS that I haven't customised anything NOR enabled the 'Hide shoutbox' code as yet. These will follow suit later this evening so just bear with us. Ty ty.

I'm getting Shoutbox notifications at the top of the page, although I've got it hidden.

That's how many people are active in the box.

Hide feature is being reintroduced in a moment.

Hide feature should now be working once more. Simply navigate to your preference, click the checkbox and hit save if you don't want to view the box on the forums index.

What if I want to view the shoutbox but don't care about how many users are on it, if that what the red box with a number is at the top?

In short how do I get rid of that red box?

Not possible as it stands, I'll see if I can adapt the code in the coming days.

It's the server dropping out, you've probably noticed the site sluggish and posts delaying etc. We're switching servers imminently to hopefully resolve this.

How can I stop getting notifications from it? I click on it and they still don't go away.

They aren't notifications, they are the amount of users that are currently inside the shoutbox.

At present, it cannot be disabled. It's on the list for me to look at in the near future.
