Brief Description of AJAX Shoutbox with Sounds
Detailed Description of AJAX Shoutbox with Sounds
Also I extended the AJAX Shoutbox for a customer to allow a short “view” of the chat window suitable for placing on the main index or elsewhere. The view does not include sounds. The assumption is that if you want to hear sounds you have the chat page (chat.php) open, typically in a tab. When you hear a sound you know that a new chat message has been received. You can sample the sounds by selecting them. Your own chat messages will also invoke a sound.
Here is an example of how the shoutbox view could be included on the main index. Typically you would place it inside a table cell. You would have to rework the layout of index_body.tpl.
<td height="25"><iframe src="./shoutbox_view.php?width=250&height=200" width="250" height="200" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" scrolling="no"></iframe></td>
A few shoutbox defaults were changed. The chat window is a bit taller to accommodate the additional controls. There are a few variables you can change as needed near the top of shoutbox.php:
$sound_file_dir = './soundmanagerv20/sounds/'; // Location of MP3 files on server to be used by SoundManager. Change as necessary. $sound_cookie_expires_days = '365'; // Number of days before the sound cookies expires. Default is one year.
