If you mean like a bbc box to appear not yet.
But you can include any emoticion you want in the shoutbox
Code: [Select]
:)[.code]


If you want to the edit the shoutbox code check out Sources/Subs-EzPortalMain.php

i'm an idiot when it comes to these things, but how can we make modifications to the built-in shoutbox for ezportal? i just want to decrease the text size and maybe make it bold (so that it is still viewable). i understand that it has something to do with modifying the Subs-EzPortalMain.php file, but i really don't want to mess things up by trial and error - can you help? thanks

Download that ,php file to your PC, save it as is, then if you wish to play around with the code and cause errors, upload the saved file to overwrite the one you have been working on to restore it to it original state.  I do this all the time.  But I always test it on my test forum just for safety sake.

Test forums are the way to go when you're not sure what the cause/effect of code hacking will be.  Most often, it's simple sytax errors, but they can crash your entire forum in a heartbeat.

If you don't use a test forum, one thing you can do to quickly correct a goof-up is to create a folder in the folder you're working in and name it something like "goodcopy".  Then, before you make your code hack, copy the file you are going to work on into to the "goodcopy" folder. 

If you botch-up the code hack, you can quickly go to the goodcopy folder and copy your file back into the main folder you were working in.  It takes less than 60 seconds to get your forum out of "ERROR!" crashes.

If you don't want to do a whole directory back-up after doing an successful hack and you want to continue modifying that same file to make other changes, remember to copy your file to the goodcopy folder before starting again.

Howdy all

We've just started with our forum..and its already a big succes and alllmost perfect!
Thanks also to EZPortal and ofcourse SMF
We've used a theme intifada and modified it ourselves..so it became a whole new theme. Thanks to the scripter of intifada.

Also ofcourse we are using ezBlock Manager which is a great help in fullfilling our needs! Thanks!

Now we have a problem and i cant solve it:

we are looking for a shout with minimum the following features. The default shout of ezBlock Manager isnt what we would like to have...sorry.

We've looked everywhere en tried to install some shouts but none of the installed shouts fullfilled our needs and/or we had problems installing it in our theme:

  • Auto refresh shout - refresh time editable or on/off depending on member permissions;
  • After auto refreshing or adding a message...page in the browser (like firefox of internet explorer) stays at the same place..so users will still see shout instead of going back to the top of our site.
  • Vissable smilies bar using default forum Smileys and Message Icons
  • admin/staff (depending of member permissions) can edit and delete messages
  • view history
  • empty out shout history in one time by admins/staff depending on member permissions
  • klick on user you go to his/her profile
  • Choice to use "enter" to add the shout or button "add shout" )
  • integrated in our theme

can you help us? we are desperate to have one like this. Perheps a challange for you to make a new shout ezBlock? We would be very gratefull  ;D

Pls note this..i've learned a lot since installing this forum and i am leaning also to edit in CSS. But still i am a n00b on this. so a new ezBlock which is easy to install would be a geat help!

Pls help us? for us and our community a good shout is very important.

Thanks in advance
Kind regards
Katrien

same problem here, but a new shoutbox will come  :P(pls read above)

You see no smileys, but they are there. If you  shout, type the code of the smiley and the smiley will appear.

That works. I posted a thread with all of the smiley codes. I just hope they come out with a new one soon. I can't stand how it doesn't refresh itself.

Dear EzPortal. we've just installed the new release of EZPortal. Thanks for the new release.
Unfortunately no new shoutbox was added.

we are desperate to have one as described above. If it is too much work for u to do this, could you pls than only fix the autorefresh? It is quite difficult for our members always to have the entire page refreshed manually.

To us and our members you would be a great help.

Hoping you will help us, we're looking forward to a reply.

Thanks in advance
Kind regards
Katrien

Maybe autorefresh for 0.30 going to require using iframes to get it done.

Howdy EzPortal

thanks for your reply.

If that is the solution, we hope you will do that for us. It sounds logical using iframes as only the shout needs autorefresh, not the whole page. But i am an amateur in this however i am learning a lot lately (1st own site lol)


Looking forward to hear from you

Kind regards
Katrien
