Support / Re: This forum doesn't work with https
« Last post by Adonix on May 24, 2018, 02:49:03 PM »
True. This was set up years ago when https was not really that much of "a thing". Moving the forum is not a high priority for me though. As you can probably see, it is not used much at all.

Support / Re: Can we post images in the shoutbox?
« Last post by Adonix on May 24, 2018, 02:45:23 PM »
I, too, am interested in a way to display pictures that embedded links point to.  Same for videos.
(I'm looking for features that our outgoing service had, so if they could do it, you probably can too.)  Again, this should only be enabled by the admin.

This should indeed only be enabled by the admin, and configured per usergroup (admin/moderator/registered user/guest). And probably not be used for guests because it can be abused.

Does your current service perform any checking on what kind of file it is to prevent abuse? For example does it check if it is an image, and if its filesize is for example not 10GB? And how do you post the image? Just link the url or do you use BB code?

I'm currently working on it (including a checking mechanism), and will probably require UBB code. Checking will be done when the shout is posted, and when it is edited. Posting a shout can take significantly longer if image links are present, because the links will be checked on 1. if it exists, 2. is it an image, 3. is it not too large 4. dimensions.

While this will prevent most abuse, it will still be possible to abuse it, since the file will only be checked when posting/editing. So nothing will prevent someone from removing the image and replacing it with something else. It's undoable to check its validity every time the shouts are loaded.

Support / This forum doesn't work with https

While shoutboxes do work with https, this support forum doesn't.
(I have to keep turning off the requirement for https whenever I come here, and then back on.)
Can this be fixed?

iShoutbox + Chat4all Shout support and bugs / Admin/mod approving registrations
« Last post by Chatter on May 24, 2018, 08:32:28 AM »
One more question - and I'll probably be done for a while:

Can admins approve registrations?  In other words, nre registrants can't post unless/until the moderator approves them.
(I skimmed the features list and didn't see it.)

iShoutbox + Chat4all Shout support and bugs / Re: Use return key to post
« Last post by Chatter on May 24, 2018, 01:34:08 AM »
I hear that you find it annoying, and what you described can still happen to me if I'm not careful.  But I just copy the shout, delete it, paste it into a new shout, add new lines/paragraphs to it it, and re-post it.
Most of the time I get frustrated when the return key doesn't send, since this is the way a lot of other chats, shouts, Skype, etc, all use the return key as an enter key in this situation, and a modifier key (option for some, shift for Skype and most others so probably shift-return would be preferable to make newlines).  Perhaps it could be admin-configurable "Use return key to: (a ) Send, or (b ) Add a new line.

It doesn't have to be sticky, just needs to appear every 3 or 4 hours and then go into the shout stream.

Just to clarify - are you saying that any registered user can see the archives, but only admins can search them?
29
- Can users see the list of who's currently online?

No, but it is on the todo list.

- Can we change the font to something else?

In the adminpanel you can use the "Skin preferences" to change the font type and font size of several element types.

- Can we have a periodic announcement, say every 4 hours?

No. How would that work? Do you mean it shows a specific shout at the top (like a sticky/pinned shout) at certain time intervals?

iShoutbox + Chat4all Shout support and bugs / Re: Another question - older shouts
« Last post by Adonix on May 22, 2018, 11:44:22 AM »
There is an "options" link with at the top of the shoutbox. When you click on that, you are presented with options to login, register on the shoutbox, pop-out the shoutbox, and show the shout archive. For people who are already logged in, clicking on the green arrow will show a list of icons representing options.

Searching through shouts is available in the moderation and admin panels.
