Title: Why not have a shoutbox?
Post by: Alvendam on February 16, 2015, 01:36:13 PM
Hey everyone, why not have a shoutbox in the forum for "too regular to make a new topic" kind of chats? I turns out that SMF has a number of mods to make this possible:
SMFPacks Shoutbox (http://simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=269091.0) (free with a 20$ pro version (http://smfpacks.com/shoutboxmod))
nneonneo's Shoutbox (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/?mod=585) (free and has a lot of features)
Ultimate Shoutbox (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=22)

There are more for sure, but this is what comes up in a quick search. So... Can we have a shoutbox?

I'm not entirely sure what a shoutbox is, but I wish APK just had a chat thing where users could talk without having to make a thread. Just converse and stuff. Instant messaging, I guess. Not permanent.

The shoutbox is like a chat. It stays on the forum page and keeps a set amount of messages back. So I can write something in 12pm your time and you can check it when you get online.
