    I can't see the shoutbox on the front page, I didn't even though there was one to begin with, but I can't see it.

    You have to enable the Shoutbox from Portal Options, then it will just kind of show up when it feels like it.

    I'm not kidding when I say it will appear when it wants to. It can take 10 minutes, a few hours, a day, etc. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to its appearance after you enable it. Once it finally shows up, it doesn't go away until you disable it (which also takes its dear sweet time).

    The shoutbox is kind of a buggy, pain in the ass to get to appear and disappear properly.

    Just to be clear, when it does appear, it will appear under everything else on the right hand side of the Portal page.

    Try this

    There's obviously a problem, but this might get you to the shoutbox for now.

    Nah. It will just be there at some point when you visit the portal page. Sitting there will do nothing, as the Portal page doesn't do anything dynamically. You have to refresh to see the changes.

    For anybody who suggests it: clearing cache and cookies seems fairly useless. I tried it before, and nothing happened. Hard refreshes do nothing. It is just random.

    I agree with that. The soutbox just appeared randomly a few days after I enabled it on portal options. Just be patient and wait.

    I would've linked you to the shoutbox directly, but Vulpes has already ninja'd me. [​IMG]
    But if you use that URL, as long as you are actually allowed to use the shoutbox (which you are) then it will work.
