    Good day to you all. I apologize in advance if this is a lame question....

    I have noticed some sites have Shoutout, Get social, Affiliates boxes. Where do I go to get them, and how do I add them?

    Considering I have all three of these, I'll presume this is concerning my site, haha. :p

    The shoutbox you're referring to is called TaigaChat (see add-ons section), Get Social is a custom sidebar (I can give you the code for that if you want; it's nothing exciting), and Affiliates is another basic sidebar block with text links. It may also be worthwhile to see my "How to add a custom sidebar block" thread (I'll link later; off to class :)).

    Yes I saw all three on your site, and I would be eternally grateful to find out where you got them and how to place them on your site.

    This is the Shoutbox mod: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/taigachat-ajax-shoutbox.7339/

    Get Social:
    First, make a custom template (in this case, kurt_social), replacing with your own info:
    <div class="section">
    <div class="secondaryContent">
    <h3>Get Social</h3>
    <a href="http://www.facebook.com/voiceradio" TARGET="_blank"><img src="@imagePath/xenforo/voice_facebook_logo.png" /></a>
    <a href="http://twitter.com/voiceradio" TARGET="_blank"><img src="@imagePath/xenforo/voice_twitter_logo.png" /></a>
    <a href="http://youtube.com/voiceradio13" TARGET="_blank"><img src="@imagePath/xenforo/voice_youtube_logo.png" /></a>
    Then, add this line of code in template forum_list:
    <xen:include template="kurt_social" />
    before this:
    <xen:include template="sidebar_share_page">
    <xen:set var="$url">{xen:link canonical:index}</xen:set>
    Do the same thing as above, but this goes in the new template (again, replace with your text):
    <div class="section">
    <div class="secondaryContent">
    <a href="http://offtopichut.com/">Off Topic Hut</a><br />
    <a href="http://www.internet-radio.org.uk">Internet Radio</a><br />
