Oh, I only just saw the shoutbox because I always just check new posts since my last login rather than going to the main page.

Can you get the shoutbox added to the top of that screen as well please?

I only have the options to show it on the index page only or to show it on all pages. I think if it pops up on every page it might get a bit annoying.

Anyone else with an opinion on this? I could be wrong of course  Roll Eyes

Welcome to the world of polls... very few participate... from my own forum running experience.

And honestly, I'd love to change m vote, but it is too late now.

I have to admit, I don't really like it. It can have some use, but I would prefer posts as to shouts. JMHO.

What I don't like about the shoutbox is that it can hold no more than 10 lines and that the texts are removed after 24 hours. So if you don't check it regularly you will miss some messages.

That too (I agree). It also helps with my argument, because posts don't normally disappear!

I think its just a different thing ... posts are here to last, shoutbox is basically for quick messages which have no relevance the next day or 10 messages later ... question is: on a board like this where we do not get 100 new posts a day, isn't it better to have people write things in posts even if its shortterm relevant things ? (still I voted for "I love it" btw.)

Nope, I installed a new one.
This one keeps the last 100 messages, so anything shouted here will stay there for a while.
