Multiple shout boxes was created by vanderslikke
Hi,
I wanted to have multiple shout boxes for different sections on my Joomla 3.6 site. Thought I just could copy the module and set different access levels.

It doesn't seem to work that way as my output stays mixed and I was expecting that each copy would generate and produce its own output.

Is this possible?

Hi vanderslikke,

Unfortunately this is not possible. The shoutbox uses 1 database table, so having multiple shoutboxes would push the same shouts to each one.

We did start adding unique ID's in the Javascript to make it a little more future proof, but decided not to support multiple shoutboxes as there wasn't a high demand for it, however we may look into supporting it in the future.

Regards,
Lodder

Ok, thanks a lot for your quick reply. At least I can stop tweaking and searching now :-)

There is no solution as we work heavily with ID's for performance purposes. Until we move towards classes, multiple shoutboxes isn't possible
