iShoutbox + Chat4all Shout support and bugs / Username only read??
« Last post by Rekoboy on April 16, 2016, 01:22:28 PM »

I've installed the latest ishoutbox, and the first post is from the maker. His username is green, and I can change it into any color I want.
New usersnames I cannot give another color, because it is in read only, and you have to be the owner. Well I am the owner, but I can't edit it.
The read only message I don't understand.
Anyone a hint?

I just started to work with Ishoutbox, and joined this forum. I've posted on an (old) topic, because I could use some help.
But it seems to me if I have a look below on the site:

Thanks for an answer?

I do apologize for posting on an old post, but i'm confused and desperate after a few weeks and installing 2 ishoutboxen.
The first box I installed on April 3. Then I tried to change the skin a bit, and wanted to make it transparent. But could not get this done. Then I found this topic yesterday. You talk about complete shoutbox? There were choices?
So yesterday, I registered another ishoutbox for my 2nd website, but didn't find a choice for an complete shoutbox.
I could only reg and got the code and the shoutbox is running.
Again I went into the admin panel to change the skin, but can't figure it out where to make these cells transparent.

I can't find the css (only the head and bottom css, but putting in the code you gave us did not make the cells transparent).

Does this mean that we admins "must" write a css code ourselves and put it in the head section?
I'm not a programmer or how do you call someone who can write css. I can't :(

Hopefully you answer my post.
Tnx in advanced.

Hi remusasriel,

This is something that is on the todo list, as someone else asked for this as well a while back. In the mean time you can fix this by adding your own css in the shoutbox header (see admin panel). The code for that is:

If you selected the "complete" shoutbox during registration, there is already some custom css in the header, just replace it with this one:

<style type='text/css'>
.cell1 {
        font-weight: bold;
body {
   background-color: transparent;

If there is no custom css in the header, you can use this:

<style type='text/css'>
body {
   background-color: transparent;

What this does is make the body that surrounds the shoutbox transparent, not the shoutbox itself. If you want other elements of the shoutbox transparent, then you need to add additional css values for other elements like .cell1, .cell2, .cell3, .cell3b, .tablebg, .table2. You can experiment with the elements to see what works best for you.
If it also happens with newer IE versions, then it can't really be anything other than some configuration issue. If you have a computer capable of running virtual machines, you could download the one with IE9 from the following location, and compare the settings:

Thanks very much Adonix, it's good to know that others can view the shout box.

It's certainly my settings somewhere! Not sure where though, just deleted ie 9 and downloaded and installed ie 11 BUT... It's still the same "Loading"...

Signed ActiveX controls are enabled, Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins enabled and Script ActiveX controls marked safe for scripting enabled. Enabled Active Scripting and enabled Scripting of java applets.
It took a while, but i found out that Microsoft offers free virtual machines with all major IE versions. I downloaded the one for IE9, and found that it does load your shoutbox without any errors. See the attached screenshot. Maybe you have some Internet Explorer settings disabled or restricted, like javascript.

I don't get any errors, just the constant "Loading Shouts".
Hi Rebel,

This looks a lot like the issue I had with during development IE8, for which I made a code exception (disabled some javascript functions for IE8).  Sometimes if there are javascript errors, execution of any javascript will be disabled, which prevents the shoutbox from functioning. I have no IE9 here, so maybe you can see if you get javascript errors when you load the shoutbox. If there are errors, can you post them here?
As the title says, the shoutbox fails to load in ie9

I've enabled activex controls and plugins, also active scripting, Java applets etc. Works fine in every other major browser.
Shoutbox news / 02-08-2015: Shoutbox update
« Last post by Adonix on August 02, 2015, 09:02:52 PM »
A new iShoutbox update was just released:

iShoutbox News: Every shoutbox now has a news icon (lightbulb icon) present when an owner, admin or moderator clicks on the additional options icon (green arrowdown icon). This news icon will be yellow when there is new iShoutbox news, and will become blue after the news has been viewed. This is introduced because many shoutbox users do not visit the iShoutbox website, and are thus unaware of important changes/updates to our service. If there is unread news, the lightbulb is also present next to the dropdown arrow.

Moderation update: The shout moderation panel now displays an additional column showing the time and date when a shout was posted. The bookmarks (@ID) are now clickable inside the moderation panel. The bookmarked shout will be displayed below the list of shouts.

Avatar updates: A few items have been added/changed in the Preferences and Settings panel under User Settings:

Enable default iShoutbox avatars: This is a new option that allows you to disable/enable the use of our default 16 pixel avatar icons. This is useful if you want to have avatars like gravatar/facebook, but do not like the standard icons.

Enhanced avatar display 1: This new option allows you to define the avatar layout style. Previously the only style available was the default square or curved corners. This option allows you to select completely round avatars, or square (curved corners if the shouts are cruved).

Enhanced avatar display 2: In addition to the above, you can choose if the avatar should show the online/offline status (if show online status is enabled). It can be shown as a green glow below the avatar, or a green round insert with checkmark (like the online/offline status in skype).

Parse smilies in username: Previously, if smilies were enabled, they would also be parsed in usernames. It is now possible to use smilies, but disallow parsing of smilies inside usernames. This is can be found in the Preferences and Settings, and is called: "Convert Smilies in Name".

Select Skin: The second column in the skin selection window used to show a small colour preview using the colours of the body background, cell1 and cell2. This was years old, and no longer representative of the wide range of new skin editing options. I have changed it so that this column now shows the colour palette, where wide bars constitute much used colours and smaller bars lesser used colours.

New skins: Many of the skins you can select are old and do not use the many new skin editing features. The past few weeks I have created a few new skins, which can be viewed in the skin selection window. One of which is the very bright skin that was present on the demo shoutox in the days after the last update, and i've added a skin matching the palette of facebook and one using the skype palette. There will be more skins soon. One other thing is that it is possible to not only preview and use the skin, but also preview and use it with the settings of the shoutbox that submitted the skin. In case of the skins I added, this means the settings of the demo shoutbox. Official ishoutbox skins will have the suffix "(isb)" after the skin name.

Language override: Registered users can now override the shoutbox language and text orientation from within their profile window.

Tooltip override: Registered users can now remove the black tooltips on the shoutbox from within their profile window.

Shout character cap increase: The previous maximum amount of characters for shouts (selectable from the admin panel) was set at 3,000. It is now set to 20,000. This can be set in the preferences and settings window, and also in Enhanced Privileges.

Keepalive: An ajax poller was added to the preferences and settings window and skin preferences window to prevent a session time-out. Creating a good looking shoutbox skin can take some time, and it is no fun if you want to save your creation, only to find out that your session expired. This poller prevents the time-out.

Shoutbox registration: The registration of new shoutboxes was updated by removing the choice of shoutbox type. Most people already picked the 'complete' option, and many who did pick one of the other options wanted to move to the complete option afterwards. New registrations will now create a 'complete' shoutbox that looks a lot like the demo shoutbox on the website. Also, the default welcome message for new shoutboxes is expanded to include info on how to use the shoutbox.
