I don't have the answer but I am also curious howto resize the shoutbox. I want to use it on a crowded frontpage and would also like to remove the input box from the block. So you only see the scrollbox with shouts and have to open another box for shouting. The current shoutbox I find too big and dominant.

hi

I may be wrong but look at Preferences : there are options about sizes (width, height, and max characters for each line).

You can make the shoutbox whatever size you want by using the IFrame Width and IFrame Height preference settings.

There are some factors that may override these settings such as the size of the text entry area. If the Shout Text Input Type is set to Multi-line text area then be sure to set the Text Columns to match the width you want. Also be sure to check your site's theme. The theme's CSS sheet may define 'textarea' and could override the module's settings.

Enabling Smilies and how many smilies you have set to display as the default may also affect the width of the IFrame.

About my question Tank. Would it be difficult to have a second shoutbox block type? Ás I said before, I like to have one with only the latest shouts and a button which brings you to a page or popup you can give in new shouts.

Hi all

regarding the clone block, maybe this old & good FAQ can be useful

I´d loe to see a "core cloning block" feature

Yes I think I can add this functionality flipse. Since shoutbox is already a block I should be able to add a second block without too much trouble. My suggestion would be to remove the smilies, text entry, and auto-refresh from this new block and replace the pop-up button with a button labeled "Shout". Selecting Shout would generate a new pop-up window that would contain the text entry area. It will take some experimenting to see if I will be able to automatically refresh the message display block while the shout entry pop-up is present.

Why don´t you upgrade your XOOPS 2.18.2 to 2.3? It has "core cloning block" feature

hi

I have added icons to replace standards buttons :
Resized Image


You can try it by using those files :

Rename original block template before !!
