Help Topic: IP.Shoutbox


IP.Shoutbox allows forum members to communicate with each other in an easy to use way. It is similar to a chat-room, but does not require Java, Flash or any other browser dependency! The Shoutbox is updated real-time, meaning any new Shouts someone makes will appear on everyones page at once, you do not need to refresh!

General Features
  • Each member can have their own preferences such as "Hide Refresh Button" or "Disable Enter Key from sending the shout" (shouts can only be sent via the actual button instead, useful for large paragraph shouts!);
  • If a member hovers their mouse over the corner of the global 'shout area', a double arrow appears. If a member clicks and drags that double arrow, they can resize the Shoutbox to their liking! Please note this feature is for the global shoutbox only
  • Ability to use Smilies and BBCODE if the administrator allows them.

Quick Commands
IP.Shoutbox has several Quick Commands that can be used to make certain actions perform in a faster way, here is a list that explains how to use them properly:
  • /announce [Announcement Text] - This will update the announcement in your Shoutbox without having to go to the Admin CP
  • /archive - Launches the Shoutbox Archive window (only if member has permission to view it!)
  • /ban [name] - This will ban a member from the Shoutbox (only moderators with correct permissions can use this command)
  • /moderator member [id|name] - This will launch the appropriate moderator options for that particular member
  • /moderator shout [id] - This will launch the appropriate moderator options for that particular shout
  • /prefs - This will launch the Preferences window
  • /prune [x] - This can be used by only those that have ACP access and will prune all shouts older than [x] days. If no number is entered, a security message will pop-up so you do not accidently wipe the whole shoutbox. /prune 0 will remove all shouts.
  • /refresh - This will refresh the Shoutbox (useful if you have your refresh button hidden)
  • /unban [name] - This will unban a member from the Shoutbox (only moderators with correct permissions can use this command)

Dinoholic. : (22 May 2017 - 02:49 PM) I've heard about that big concert plan as well, although like you said nothing's been confirmed

Dinoholic. : (22 May 2017 - 02:49 PM) hellooooo everyone
Harmony : (08 May 2017 - 11:14 PM) Also Onew's enlistment hasn't been confirmed either. If they delayed it as much as possible, he still has two years based off the ages of some kdrama actors who are heading off to military.
Harmony : (08 May 2017 - 11:12 PM) I've heard the rumors about SM planning a large concert before any member's enlistment but nothing's been confirmed.
jung_eunkyung : (07 May 2017 - 08:10 PM) mistaken*
jung_eunkyung : (07 May 2017 - 08:09 PM) Hey guys, I remember seeing something about Onew enlisting next year and that SHINee will have the biggest concert/tour before he does... does anyone know for sure or have a link or was I MISTEN?

Lasco92 : (25 April 2017 - 09:59 AM) Mine is Elevator (freakin' loved that song since he revealed it on Blue Night) and Let Me Out
Lasco92 : (25 April 2017 - 09:58 AM) What's everyone's fave song off Jjong's new album?

Harmony : (15 April 2017 - 03:57 PM) post-SHINee-concert exhaustion is the BEST kind of exhaustion
Lasco92 : (15 April 2017 - 06:02 AM) I wish i could experience post concert depression....
Lasco92 : (15 April 2017 - 06:02 AM) Thank you~ hehe
Harmony : (14 April 2017 - 07:39 AM) I didn't know post concert depression had a acronym hahahaha. I nearly read it as OCD at first
Harmony : (14 April 2017 - 07:39 AM) whoa congrats on your sixth year!
Lasco92 : (13 April 2017 - 09:54 AM) I hadn't logged into SFI in sooooo long, today i did and i see the message sent to me saying it's my 6th year as an SFI member!!! WOW!!!!!
