* cleaned up the thread*

Chatboxs can harm your forums in  many ways they are a magnet for trolls and spam and also the forum itself may suffer due to lack of posts being made.
No one will join a site where all the talk is in the chat box they might as well go to yahoo chat. But if you still require one then please read on.


There are many free Chat boxes on the market just do a google search for free chat box.

There are some good and bad ones personally i would prefer to goto one that has a good support forum.

A list of the most used shoutboxes

http://www.myshoutbox.com/
http://shoutbox.sourceforge.net/
http://www.ukchatterbox.co.uk/


There are of course a few more minor ones out there that offer little or no support at all, and some are even it would seem run by children.

What you have to remember is that some chat boxes do not like to be put in a forum description so it is best to add them to the forum footer read more on forum footer Here

Also you will have to allow html tags in your profile and forum config read more HERE Forum config and HERE Profile Settings

that would be cool if admin could make like an official mff plug in shout box. like one that uses your registered user name. instead of typing a random name every time. and only members can use it. amazing if in configuration all in said was shoutbox: on or off

why not create a sticky thread named "shout thread" and all your answers will be solved almost. As Symon says shoutboxes can kill your forum.

Look in you login portal cms file and copy the switches(and only the switches) and place the BEGIN one at the top of the code and the END one at the bottom, thus members only as it only shows when logged in Wink .

it's better then normal. but i'm looking for a code where you cant change your name. it automatically uses your forum name only and if you click the persons name it will bring you to their profile

basically this one http://www.hpisavageforum.com/forums/index.php but they arent phpbb. xjeepguy there said he could give me the code for that one and try to alter it but i'm not that good

I wouldn't touch it as it is Vbulletin and the shoutbox could be an option that is only for vbulletin. I'd keep looking for a shoutbox that has admin control.

It is simple. Copy and paste the code you are given by the chatbox service.

You need to paste the code into your forum footer (Go to the control panel), in a forum description (forum management - admin panel) or by editing the template and putting it in overall_header.tpl
