Shoutbox 3.2 - Datestamp Entries?

Hi,

Is there a way to show date on which a shout was posted in shoutbox 3.2. I was using Shoutbox 1.x before, it didnt have any option, so I upgraded to 3.2. Yet I cant see the option. Can some one please guide me how to enable\add posted date.


Thanks ~

Check the settings screen of the shoutbox module and you will find a datestamp setting.

You can find the date by hovering over the shout with your mouse. Funny how manny people miss that

Oracle: That vase.

Re: Shoutbox 3.2 - Datestamp Entries?

There is no setting for module through admin control. All I get when I click on the module name is
"This should be set invisible.
- How?
System Admin - Modules. Set order to '0'.
- Why?
This module only exists out of a block and a popup.
"

The order is already set to 'O'. Nor is there any settings for module in the blocks section or any shoutbox/admin folder.

However if I open any of the template files, I could see if statements like 'if $config.popup_autofocus==1' or 'if $block.shoutbox_access != "no"'. But I am unable to find its config file to edit it manually.

By default I can see the 'time' and 'ip address' when I hover about, but the date is missing.

Could you guide me where the setting\config file is located ?

Go to your admin, locate the shoutbox module png, DO NOT CLICK on it, hover your curser over it and a hover window will display, Click on Preferences.

At least that is how it is for ShoutBox version 3.2
