Wonderful!!!!!!!! supports smiles, images, html if you want, does it all!!!!

NEEDS UPDATING: If 'auto refresh' is enabled, it refreshed the entire index page, even if not showing on index. There might be a fix for this, (I would like to know.) but I HAD to turn off auto refresh, it was terrible.

doesn't work in Postgres... at least some of the SQL is pure MySQL :-/

during Install and Activate, errors on this...

CREATE TABLE `mybb_shouts` ( `sid` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL auto_increment, `uid` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL default '0', `message` text NOT NULL, `dateline` bigint(30) NOT NULL default '0', `ipaddress` varchar(30) NOT NULL default '', PRIMARY KEY (`sid`) ) TYPE=MyISAM

Written By: Nahue, 19th March 2013

for what version is this?

Written By: Markus_Wolf, 25th April 2013

Sorry, i didnt see :D For mysql error just replace TYPE=MyISAM vith ENGINE=MyISAM in shoutbox.php

Written By: Markus_Wolf, 25th April 2013

Any way to get timestamps on the posts???

Written By: rfxcasey, 11th August 2013

IF you get a MySQL Error. It's because your PHP Version doesn't support the input.

Please go to "../Inc/Plugins/shoutbox.php"
Ctrl + F > Find "TYPE=MyISAM"
Replace "TYPE" with "ENGINE" for "ENGINE=MyISAM"
Save the .php file. Then go back to your browser, refresh the page and re-click "Install". I hope this helps :)
