  • {OCS}MasterSeal: I know this SB isnt' for support, but I just have a general question. Who would I contact to find out where SP stores its block info? Is it DB driven or files? I searched the site but came up with nothing. probably my fault any insight is appreciated.

  • emanuele: That's indeed funny, the limit is present only in the patch and not the full install.
    October 22, 2016, 06:14:58 PM
  • phantomm: and from what I see only patch is broken, full install package is fine

Shoutbox - SP Shoutbox vs. Legacy Shoutbox
« on: June 10, 2015, 04:24:43 PM »
Just added SimplePortal to my SMF site which already had the Shoutbox Mod installed.

Install went smoothly :).

Just a few  of questions...

Does Simpleportal  include Shoutbox?
If so, should I remove the Shoutbox mod and activate the SP Shoutbox feature?
If so, what are the advantages to using the SP Shoutbox?

Yes, SP has it's own shoutbox.
Yes, I'd use that one, as it's very versatile. In fact, you can have multiple, in different locations of the site, for different things.

On my site, I have the main, one as a Staff chat in staff boards, moderation and admin areas, and one as comments for a certain page.

Hi and welcome to SimplePortal!

What BurkeKnight said is correct. And I would use SP's shoutbox (I actually use it as well) also because the other ones have several issues (tried ALL of them before installing SP).

Regards
Have you tried SimplePortal Documentation before asking? ;)

Thanks. I could see the additional features in the SP Shoutbox, just was not sure if it was reliant on the regularl mod or not.

Does look like I'll have to first uninstall SP in order to remove the original Shoutbox, then reinstall.
