    A shoutbox on the portal

    For confirmed members








    For our confirmed members (the same that have access to the trading forums), I've just finished coding a shoutbox. You can see it on the right, below the "Recommended Sites" box. If you don't like shoutboxes, feel free to disable it by editing your profile. Also keep in mind that with the shoutbox, the same good old forum rules apply: no links to illegal content, no insults, no flaming, etc.
    If you have any suggestion, feel free to post a comment.

    [​IMG] Go to your profile if you wish to hide the shoutbox from the portal.

    this would normally happen if you don't refresh the portal often enough, then the session expires (=> you're not listed in the active users list, so you're not considered as connected)
    but you seem well alive, I don't know what might cause the problem.. I'll check your problem.


    edit: your address IP doesn't match with the one you started the session with.
    basically, in the database there's an entry that says "you're connected with ip XXXXX",
    but your actual IP address has changed...
    I advise you to log out and in again, it should reinitialise the session.

    You need to be involved in the community.
    Usually, members with +100 messages (or old members, registered before 2005) are considered "confirmed members".

    Just a question, is it supposed to be hidden from "non-confirmed" members? Or can they only not shout?
    Because I can't see it!
    Long question short: bug or feature? [​IMG]
