Shoutbox in forum

Postby Zenith on Mon Apr 20, 2009 5:20 pm

Create an account @ www.myshoutbox.com
Make sure you write down your shoutbox number.
Now Go to ACP in your phpBB3. Go to POSTING.
Now to the left go to BBCodes.
Click Add new bbcode.
Now in the BBCODE USAGE box add the following code.
Code: Select all
[shoutbox={TEXT1}]{TEXT2}[/shoutbox]

Now in the HTML replacement box add this code and replace YOURSHOUTBOXNUMBER with your shoutbox number of course.
Code: Select all
<iframe src="http://YOURSHOUTBOXNUMBER.myshoutbox.com/" width="{TEXT1}" height="{TEXT2}" frameborder="0" allowTransparency="true"></iframe>

Then click submit.
Now go to FORUMS section in ACP.
Create a category and call it whatever you want like shoutbox or something. And add permissions so people can view it. Then make a forum in the category with permissions so you can view it but lock it so people cannot post in the forum. In forum description add this:
Code: Select all
[shoutbox=400]100[/shoutbox]

400 controls the width of the shoutbox, and 100 controls the height, you can change those values to whatever you'd like.
