Ajax Shoutbox For Ipb - Beta 2 Release

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,
[tab][/tab]Here's one of our preview releases of the projects going on under Antilost - an AJAX based ULTRA-LIGHT (only 20KB) Shoutbox, that works extremely fast and without refreshing your whole page. Can be easily integrated into IPB - although full integration module not ready yet.

A demonstration can be found at: http://www.hugedomains.com/domain_profile.cfm?d=antilost&e=com

Keep in mind that this is a develpomental release and is not completed yet. As we finish more and more of the coding part, the subsequent releases will be readily made availabel for download. So make sure you keep checking for updates regularly. To be informed about latest developments, you should signup with us at Antilost. We'll start sending out monthly e-Zines consisting of recent project updates and new project news.

You can get the files for the Beta 2 Release at:

Pity.. The script should work only on IPB forums.. I'll definately get one if it can integrate into normal HTML..

 

Nice finding though..

I think you got me wrong - the script WONT JUST WORK with IPB - it can be embedded into ANYTHING - any forum or even plain HTML pages. What I meant was as of now, we've coded the script to read nicknames from the IPB Database ONLY. But soon we'll pack in an installer with it - that'll allow you to install it in any well-known forum or just normal HTML/PHP pages - except that in such a case you've to manually key in your nickname everytime you shout.

 

You should give the test version a try at our developers' community.

I tried using the shoutbox in an ordinary HTML page, but I got a JavaScript error from both Netscape 7.2 and IE 6. I looked at it on the Antilost forum, and say that it's pretty good looking (along with the AntiLost forum-how long have you guys been around? I don't really see that many posts).

Oh we had well over thousand posts to start with - and we'd started sometime around beginning of this year. But then the movement had died out.. recently about a month and a half back suddenly everyone seemed to gather around and take renewed interest in it. Now we don't ever intend to look back.. Everything's going full swing. Unfortunately, due to some stupid mistakes on my part - I lost all the old messages from our earlier board.. But nothing to worry :D We got plenty of good developers, graphic artists and dreamers joining us everyday. This time we're going to make it a giant success :D

As of now, the shoutbox is being modified to encapsulate it entirely into a javascript object - which can be dragged and dropped to any part of the screen - giving you a freely floating shoutbox. Adding it into any page will be as simple as:

<html>........<script>var shoutbox = new ShoutBox();</script>...........</html>

--- That's all you'll have to do to embed it in any page of yours :( The new code will be announced soon
