    Updated Shout Box

    Hey all, we're about to roll out a new version of the shoutbox so please let us know if you run into any problems using it, if you notice the site running slow or the shoutbox itself running slow, giving errors, etc.

    We'll be doing this in the next couple minutes.

    Ok it's up and running. Right now it's set at the same place as the previous shoutbox and works in a similar manner. You can choose the type of font, color, style you want to use and of course there are smilies available too.

    the today's posts and new posts features are mainly designed to show the forum threads and not the shout box. We might be able to modify it but not sure at this point.

    you mean when you click on the smilie menu to view the ones you can use?

    I made a change that will make the smilies alittle easier to view. The main change with this version other than the cosmetic appearance and ease of load on the server would be smilies and how they are displayed. the previous shoutbox would pick out 8 random smilies to display everytime the page refreshed. this version though shows 10 basic similes and then the "more" feature shows the entire smilie inventory on the site broken down into the same categories that you would see if you were posting a thread or reply so that will take alittle getting used too. so far they seem to be loading up pretty normal for me.

    also I noticed the SA watermark is a bit cutoff in the posting area so we'll see about fixing that also.

    some of the bigger smilies will only show a partial image but you can see what they are pretty easily and of course they show the full smilie when you use it. Also if you see a bigger smilie in the list you can "mouse" over it and it will show you a preview at the bottom of what it is...handy if you aren't familiar with them all.

    does anybody else have this problem? one thing I did find is that when you want to use a smilie if u move your mouse off the menu after clicking on it they will go away and you have to reclick on the smilies again to get the display back. it shouldn't take a full refresh though..

    Im using FF3 but I also tested it on Avant and IE7.
