Hello all and thanks for the shoutbox. I registered late last night and tinkered with it some to customize it for my liking. I came in just under the century for box ownership and am member #12 for this forum. Guess that makes me part of the elite "Dirty Dozen" ;D. About all I could do was change a few colors and do some CSS in header and a few other things in header and footer.
I like it but gave you the lowest rating in your pole thus far, but still a positive rating. I'm sure (and hopeful) that you will continue to develop it as it will grow in popularity and use. At the moment it lacks some features we need, especially in security. So for the time being we will not be posting it for our members but as it develops and more needed features are added we might employ it on our page.
If I might take just a moment to list a few of the most needed features here as a wish list.
Ban name/IP section
Might be nice if we could as admin protect a short list of names (our staff)
The ability to "add" more of our own custom hosted smilies
Ability to change the size of the iframe or eliminate it and we can embed by other means.
I don't think I saw a means to pin a shout, that would also be nice.
I didn't make the list as long as I could but these are quite important to us. Thanks again for creating and offering this "FREE" service.

- Coming in Vol° 2 - Coming in Vol° 2 - Coming in Vol° 2 - Might come soon - You can - You can
Thanks for the feedback.
;D Great on the "Coming in Vol 2. Glad to see that 'extra' custom smilies might come as well, but as for the sticky and iframe size? I saw a sticky.gif but am clueless how to use it. The iframe, is it a header or footer hack that needs to be used? And lastly, any estimated date of release for Vol 2?

The iframe size automaticly changes by the size that you put in inside of the General Settngs page. And concerning the stickies, you have to open the admin panel, and press Add Shout, after that, change the type to sticky instead of normal.
Vol° 2 will probably be out in a month maybe. I might update the iframe sizing so you can resize the shoutbox individualy from the iframe (later).
