[For 1.6] [AJAX] Inferno Shoutbox for MyBB
#1
Inferno Shoutbox for MyBB

  • [AJAX] Inferno Shoutbox

  • Created By ectomatt @ MyBB.com

  • Project started 12/16/2013




Preface



Please note that this is the first version of this shoutbox. There are many more updates to come. All major updates to this shoutbox will be free, as expected.



If you want additional functionality which doesn't match my idea for this shoutbox, such as your own personal custom commands or other major features, PM me here with your personal requests. I will give you a quote based on the size of the work.



Description

This is the long awaited Inferno Shoutbox Lite for MyBB! This shoutbox was inspired by "Inferno vBShout for vBulletin"*. Many people who have used that shoutbox in the past know that it was easily the best shoutbox available for vBulletin. Unfortunately, nothing like it existed for MyBB, until now! The lite version is and will always be free. The download link is included below.

This plugin will be supported in this thread ONLY.

Inferno Shoutbox for MyBB 1.6 Download
[Image: plugin.png] Status: Validated, visible


***** MYBB 1.8 UPDATE *****
A temporary 1.8 update of this shoutbox has been made by user Clank and can be downloaded via his github. More information here.


Additional Information



Auto-Idle

Auto-Idle is a feature that is included to help optimize the shoutbox and save server resources. If a user has the shoutbox loaded but isn't actively participating in it, they will be marked as "Idle" after a certain amount of time (definable in the ACP). This prevents unnecessary requests for data if the user isn't even there to read it.



Advanced Network Updating System

The Shoutbox ANUS is a feature that (when turned on) will drastically reduce the amount of bandwith/server resources used by the shoutbox. Basically, instead of constantly refreshing the shouts every X seconds, it will check to see if there is any new data worth updating for, and if there is, it will update.



Private Message System

If enabled, the PMS (Private Messaging System) will allow users to communicate with each other quickly and effectively in secondary shoutbox "tabs". All conversations via private messaging can only be seen by the sender and reciever, and the user can have unlimited amounts of private conversations. To start a private conversation, click on a user's name in the shoutbox, or alternatively use the command below.

Looks good so far. But why in the hell you name the updating system "anus" ?

While I was reviewing his submission I was in doubt too, but probably it just turned out that way, non-intentional.

Don't mess up with the wrong pipsqueaks!

Hello,
Looks pretty good. Some questions + suggestions:
  • All the language output is hardcoded, I'd love to translate it, but what if you update the plugin? I will have to translate it again. Hopefully you can add a language file Smile
  • Can you add automatic pruning, eg. after a week prune all message apart from the last 30?

I'm not familiar with that plugin or it's problems. You can never say you are 100% certain there are NO possible exploits with any plugin. All I can tell you is that I've done my best to prevent exploits for multiple scenarios. If an exploit is found, I will patch it and release an update as soon as possible.

Hi Zenk, these are both great suggestions and will both be added in the next release. Thanks!

Thanks.
Don't know if it is just me, but if you do: /pm name; msg, /pm name2; msg - it doesn't say who you have PM'ed. [pic]

The shoutbox this was based off of had that same behavior. I can see your point that it's unclear and I'll add that in the next update so it would appear something like this:
