Shoutbox is an XOOPS module that provides an interactive block and pop-up window for visitors to post and view messages. For background info and previous developer credits refer to "readme_archive.txt".
This release addresses clickable URL's opening in a new window, extra line feeds messing up display of messages when File storage used, all hard-coded text has been moved to language files, improved text sanitizing and addition of more comments in module style sheet.
Now with CAPTCHA support. If you are running XOOPS 2.0.x or XOOPS 2.2.x you must install Frameworks 1.35 for captcha feature to work. If you are running XOOPS 2.3.x and you have Frameworks 1.35 installed then you have the option of using Frameworks captcha OR core captcha selectable through module Preferences.
Frameworks 1.35 download is available at https://xoops.org/modules/repository/s ... file.php?cid=101&lid=1766
Please be sure to read the installation/update instructions in the readme.txt file. Since we removed the local captcha class from the module, we recommend deleting the existing ShoutBox module if you are updating from a previous version. If you simply overwrite existing files there will be alot of files present on your server that are no longer used.
Additional features in this release are the addition of wordwrap setting and enable/disable display of avatars in the ShoutBox block. These options are specifically targeted for those who are displaying the ShoutBox in a very narrow column. By adjusting the wordwrap setting you can eliminate the appearance of the horizontal scrollbar and by disabling the display of avatars you have more room for text to be displayed.
This release has been tested on XOOPS 126.96.36.199 and XOOPS 2.3.0
