option of putting either an embeded shoutbox or chatbox onto our forum

Post by CrazyDave on April 26th 2009, 12:44 pm

i suggest that forummotion members should be allowed the option of putting either an embeded shoutbox or chatbox onto our forum and not just a chatbox.

kinda like this shoutbox, with also the option of placing it at the top or bottom of your forum.



every forum is made for different things and different uses. not everyone likes to use a chatbox. with having the option of either a shoutbox or chatbox more people will be able to make their forum more unique and useful to its members.

This is a mod, and has to be added by the techies.
Don't think it will be done, but anyway... Wink

it can be done and thats without any techie or frenchie Razz

I did this on my old forum...
look in the top right corner of your browser there should be a search box ...
type in free shoutbox
locate this page: http://www.shoutmix.com/main/
follow the 3 easy steps : create | customize | code

once you get the html code.... you pop over to your forum
if you want it on top:
admin panel-> display -> general -> homepage message-> paste the code there.

if you want it on the sides (you need widgets active on one side)
admin panel-> modules -> forum widgets -> create new -> paste code -> save
you can do the same for your portal

on http://www.shoutmix.com/main/ make sure to get the size and shape and colors of your shoutbox right. I recommend shoutmix, i used it before the interface is simple and easy to work with

Hi there every1,

I have been running shoutmix for almost 3 months now with my forum.... and I must say it's really cool!
But the thing is that, I need it to be integrated with my forum Anubis KO Any1 have any idea how to integrate shoutmix with forumotion without my users "re-loggin to shoutmix"?

Cheers!
