Hello,
i consider using your Shoutbox instead of Ajax Shoutbox ( joomla.batjo.nl/ )
There's no support for batjo shoutbox since months now.

However this shoutbox has some interesting features which i'm missing here:
- Archive
- Avatar Support (Kunena)
- User link (which links to the user's profile)
- An easier Captcha (or let's say a smaller one)
- Maybe also adding Kunena emoticons

Maybe you can realise some of these features in the next version(s).
I would much appreciate it.

Greetings

Thank you for sharing you suggestions. We always welcome them as we are always trying to make our extensions better.

You have made some good points which we will definitely consider in our next update. Currently, we are working on making our extensions Joomla 3.x compatible, but after this, we will work on a Shoutbox update with new features.

Should you think of anymore, please share them.

Regards,
Lodder

Hiya, guys -

My community is in love with Shoutbox. I took my forums down for a day to do some maintenance and they went through withdrawal. :lol:

They want to know if it's possible to add Twitter functionality, so they can reTweet whatever they're sending to the shoutbox? The idea is that if they have a Twitter account, they could do a one-time choose to retweet their shout to our community Twitter feed, so that people who aren't registered on our site will see my feed and be interested enough to take part.

I hope I explained that well. Let me know.

Thanks again for all you do!

Hi Katannah,

Glad to hear the shoutbox if liked :)

I will look into the Tweet feature tomorrow afternoon.

Hi Katannah,

We have been discussing adding the twitter integration into the shoutbox and decided that it won't happening. Code wise, it will be a bad idea as the majority will be based on javascript and thus won't work for those who have javascript disabled on their browser. We also don't think it will be a popular feature to the shoutbox.

In the next week or 2, we hope to bring out a shoutbox update with more bug fixes and a few new features.

Regards

Any chance of using AJAX so the whole page doesn't have to refresh with a post to the shoutbox? For me personally that's a real breaker. I want to move away from AJAX Shoutbox and to your app but I can't get past this page reloading thing. Our current shoutbox is heavily used and I can't have full page reloads happening all day long. Thanks!
