  • Fixed bug when archiving messages would not show the date of the message but the current date
  • Archiving feature is no longer trying to create a post if no new messages have been posted
We also introduced a fresh new feature which we called whispering ! Users are now able to whisper any other user in the Shoutbox through this command : /w [@username:user_id] message. But, as it is kind of difficult to remember it, we added a new icon in front of the username to easily whisper with someone.
This is permission-based, you can manage which users can whisper to others.

To differentiate a normal message from a whispered message, we have added a background color to the message so you can be sure it is a whsiper !

Warning : This is a BETA version, it is not recommended to install it on a production environment !

You must upload the server foler and re-configures the Shoutbox through the options if you're upgrading !

Do not upload the server folder if you're upgrading.

  • Fixed missing avatar in leaderboard
  • Added ability to select user for messages archiving + added missing date for each message
  • Fixed a problem with "num in chat" counter which could cause significant problems due to sockets overload
It's been a while since the last update, so we decided to bring a nice and cool update with some new features :)

First of all, we added a custom debugging log for the Node server which will help us to detect unexpected errors. This feature is enablable through the ACP and is by default switched to off. We decided to bring this off due to unexpected disconnection errors on our own forum, it is mainly to prevent these sort of problems in the future.

Then, we refactored several aspects of our code to provide you the best possible experience, with great smoothness.
  • Adding "num in chat" counter which display the total number of connected users to the shoutbox.
  • No longer show messages from ignoring users.
  • Ability to double click on a message to edit it.
  • Remove overlay cache when editing a message.
We also added some great new features which were very much in demand
  • Shoutbox personalization
    • Ability for administrators to create unlimited sounds.
    • Every users can personalize his shoutbox on its own (ability to play sound when tagged and select tag render) - based on a permission.
  • Chat as BOT
    • Thanks to a permission and an option, any users can chat in the shoutbox as BOT with the /bot command at the beginning of his message.
  • Messages archiving
    • Every day messages are archived into a thread (which already exists) - this is managed with an option
We know that shoutbox personalization is very limited, but we want to bring this feature very high and we will.
