When users get mentioned in a shout and they get an alert, it will link to that shout and users will have the option to view 10 shouts before and after the shout they been mentioned in.

Fixed an error on the archive page for users who don't have the permissions to view the staff room.
Added "Staff room" feature where staff members with the permission can switch from "public room" to the "staff room" to chat in private. The archive will display both public and staff room shouts for those with permission.

Made code improvements and removed almost 1 KB of JS code.


Added admin option to start chat collapsed for first time users.
Fixed an issue with active user list on the dedicated page where the list will load only when it refreshes via JS.
Added admin option to reset user shout count when shouts are pruned.
Json file used in "Real-time mode" will now be created when the option is enabled, to pass file health check validation.

Added "Real-Time" mode which allows you to improve performance and server load by calling a JSON file on the server every second, instead of querying the database every x seconds, handling more active users at the same time and performing shout edits and deletes almost instantly.

Please note that while using this option, shouts will be accessible to anyone (who knows what they are doing), so do not use it if you want total privacy.

Also, if bandwidth is a server limitation on your web hosting plan, this option will increase bandwidth consumption.
