wick3d,

Please do not post the same twice.  Use "modify" link to edit/add to original post.

If you have a shoutbox problem, please start new topic in a support board.
Please make a description of your own shoutbox problem.

I apologize.  I do not speak Russian, and I do not know of anyone on staff who speaks russian.
We are having difficulty understanding your post.  Google Translate is not very helpful.

We will try.  Please forgive us if we ask the same question many times in order to understand you.
Please to keep this website running, if you like SimplePortal, make a
one-time subscription. Thank you for your support.

Have you tried the SimplePortal documentation?

andy,

  We won't be able to tell if the edit works unless you still have the issue on your newer host environment.  Even with the edit I had in mind the same issue was occurring after some more testing although that was on a setup that included a mod I made that edited the shoutbox function.  If you still have the issue we can try it or I can look at the shoutbox coding and attempt to alter the javascript for it.

Hello everybody,

My shoutbox has working very well until I update the PHP version from the webserver so version 5.5.10

Now I got the same problem.
After posting in the shoutbox the refresh icon is working continuous and just after refresh the page I see the posting.

May that is a new point of view!
Which PHP version is in use on the forum who have the refresh probems?
PHP 5.6

Push

I realise that is related to the PHP version from the Web Host.

Is there plant a fix for it?


EDIT:

I have tested it with PHP version 5.3.28 - No problems
If I go up to version 5.4.26 or 5.5.10 I get the problem again.

I is definitely a problem with the PHP version.


Please advice.

I'm still getting odd behavior on my new host (PHP version    5.4.28).

Some comments are not being loaded when it auto refreshes. It worked several times perfectly then the problem started.
When forum page is reloaded they appear and also after a shout is entered the delayed ones from other users appear.
I was using latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, Opera.

Alright, let us try using some jQuery to refresh the container id. With this test I am not bothering to remove Sinan's refresh routine and just adding in some basic jQuery. If it works then we can take it further.

jQuery reference: http://api.jquery.com/load#loading-page-fragments

There are 2 necessary file edits...



File:
../Themes/default/PortalShoutbox.template.php

find:
Code: [Select]
function template_shoutbox_embed($shoutbox)
{
global $context, $scripturl, $settings, $txt;

Add after above code:
Code: [Select]
if (!empty($shoutbox['refresh']))
echo '
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var auto_refresh = setInterval(
function ()
{
$(\'#result\').load(\'', currentPageShoutbox($shoutbox['id']) ,'\').fadeIn("slow");
}, ', ($shoutbox['refresh'] * 1000), ');
</script>';



file: ../Sources/Subs-Portal.php

find:
Code: [Select]
?>

Add before code shown above (prior to end PHP tag of file):
Code: [Select]
/* Current shoutbox url & container */
function currentPageShoutbox($shoutid, $pageURL = 'http://')
{
if (!empty($_SERVER["HTTPS"]))
$pageURL = "https://";

if ($_SERVER["SERVER_PORT"] != "80")
$pageURL .= $_SERVER["SERVER_NAME"].":".$_SERVER["SERVER_PORT"].$_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"];
else
$pageURL .= $_SERVER["SERVER_NAME"].$_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"];

return $pageURL . '#shoutbox_load_' . $shoutid;
}



Let me know if that corrects the issue. Btw - set the refresh seconds within the shoutbox settings to something other than 0 since that disables the refresh.

Regards.

Tried those edits and cleaned out the cache but...

Often the first shout does not show during automatic refresh in another (user) browser. If a second shout is made then both are loaded at the next refresh.
If people make one comment and wait for a reply then its still not going to work well.

I get a PN from a forum user here.

I fixed mine this morning. i went to the root directory, and found a file called .htacess

I edited this file to force the server to run the same version of php my old server ran which was 5.3

the code looks like this pick except mine was set to 5.3

Hope that is OK that I post it "open".

I can't see php 5.3 version fixing it - this is an old problem and back when I reported it I bet my server was on php 5.2 then.

andy,

  I do not seem to witness that behavior as it appears to function properly for me.
Can you confirm the refresh has a int value such as ie. 10 ??

Perhaps I will try testing this on a live setup as it has only been tested locally.
I believe someone else has reported in another thread something about changing the cache behavior for their forum to fix this issue which I will investigate.

I just tested again with Firefox and Opera and seemed ok on 10 seconds with over 10 shouts. Before I did set the refresh higher at times.

Anyway, I set refresh to 15, cleaned the cache and tried it - ok.
Set refresh to 20, cleaned the cache and tried it - then a shout missed.


Actually only 1 this time didnt show up (using the original code).

Interesting.
Would you also be able to test in the default theme to rule out that possibility?
I will also suggest disabling blocks containing other js.

A good way to test this may be to set up a duplicate forum from a sub-directory using a copy of the same db and mods/files.
Then you can adjust its environment for testing without affecting your actual forum.

I can set up a copy on another domain I have. Its the same as the old one I used so should have trouble with it on that too.

Will test as advised.

I have used SMF and tiny portal for a couple of years but decided to try Simple Portal on my latest web site.  I like it pretty well but I have noticed that when I post a shout in the shout box sometimes I get a spinning icon that just never goes away.  How can I fix this?  Using SMF 2.08 and sp 2.35
