This is exactly what I was looking for. It is simple yet provides all the functionality you would need in a shoutbox, Install was easy and quick and it fits great with my theme. Great Job !
The Shoutbox by Siropu is an ideal version for those who want a lightweight instant chat system. A version like the Chat is much more complete for those who want. I recommend this add-on !
Solid shoutbox and Siropu is very responsive to issues. It covers all the bases you need for a basic shoutbox.
one this addon really looks amazing with the new update its awesome .. and one thing that makes me love your addons they dont come with a paragraph site branding like how others do.
great looking chatbox, it's got everything we need for the front page of the forum. Being able to 'like' shouts would be nice though.
This is perfect if you want a shoutbox that is just a shoutbox - I don't need private rooms, or irc capability, I just need a place for my members to chat and this does the job well. It's well designed so I didn't feel the need to tweak templates at all, I could install and go. It runs very smoothly and my members like it a lot. Also there are some extra features you wouldn't expect, like ability to show the avatar of the person posting, and ability to have a sound play when a shout is posted.
This is exactly what I was looking for. It is simple yet provides all the functionality you would need in a shoutbox. Thanks for creating this.
