12 posts in this topic

The idea behind this modification is when a topic is posted in selected forums, for the topic or just topic details to be posted within the shoutbox as well.

 

Any feature suggestions or beta testers are greatly welcomed. This will be a free modification that will be released here, InvisionModding and IPS Resources.

 

Planned Feature List:

  • Compatibility with IP.Shoutbox
  • Compatibility with Inferno Shoutbox
  • Compatibility with deans shoutbox
  • Option to enable group name formatting
  • Option to change bot name from topic author
  • Select which forums topics are grabbed from
  • Easily edit shoutbox message within AdminCP
  • Character cut-off limit for shoutbox message.
  • Option to disable images from being copied from topics
  • Strip attachments from appearing in shoutbox message

Legend: Done - In Progress

Should be able to view png now, the shoutbox has been stable for a while now, there up to v1.0.2 and it seems to be going well.

thanks :)

 

not a suggestion really, but can you put the %topic_link% and all the other options as hard text under 'Shoutbox Post' on the left, eg:

 

Shoutbox Post

How do you want the shoutbox post to be displayed?
options:

Post a URL to the topic:
[url="http://%topic_link%"][b]%topic_name%[/b][/url]

post a URL to the topic author/creator:
[url="http://%profile_link%"][b]%member_name%[/b][/url]

post the content of the topic:
%post_content%

 

 

a limiter for the number of characters posted for the topic content as a new section?

eg:

limit the amount of characters when posting a topic to: [150] edit/delete [6]

 

Q. does this parse images posted in topics, if so, you may want to have the option NOT to post images (cannot remember whether the shoutbox allows image posting, I think it does) else this might create huge overheads

PS had to shove it in a code box as the url tags parsed :rolleyes:

I'll look into adding options for character cut-off and images. One other thing, that I just thought of is attachments as well. ;)

 

I'm not quite sure what you mean by the shoutbox post. :unsure:

the info copied over so it appears on the left, else if you remove it from the text box there is not crib-sheet for adding it back :)

@terabyte: Thanks :)

 

This mod is ready to be released, been beta testing a lot, so will skip public testing, just need to think of a name and release it. Not quite sure Shoutbox Poster Bot is appropriate, it's not really a bot and I'm not sure if people would confuse this function as the shoutbox shouts being posted into a topic instead of topics being inserted into the shoutbox.
