Hello Raven Community,

I have the Shout Box block on my website, and just trying to improve it, noticed everytime you make a shout, it would auto fresh the whole page, how could I go about canceling that process out and just have it be a live shout box?

If needed, I could zip the block up and post it.

Regards, Derek.

nukecoder has a "live chat" that as far as I know still works Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

As far as adding AJAX form submission to the shoutbox, it's certainly possible. I got into creating a slider version of it some time back, but never got a chance to return to it. You can see it in the left block column here; Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

Although I haven't used ajax for form submission, this would give you a starting point. Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

Note that after submission, you would want to use jquery's .load method instead of the .html they are using to display a confirmation message. It's fairly easy to use load, in this example the #targetContainer will be loaded with content from #fromContainer (a container with an id of fromContainer) on index,php. The function is a callback which only executes after the data is loaded (//do stuff), so you could display a "thanks for shouting" etc.
Code:
$('#targetContainer').load('index.php #fromContainer', function() {

   // do stuff
});


It may end up being a PITA to get it working, but that's what I would try if it were me Smile

I tried out that Live Chat, ediited the SQL tables to my default prefix before running and everything, but can't seem to get it to connect to the database.

Everytime when trying to view it as a block or module, it displays a Error connecting to database, so I try Including config.php file in the LiveChat.php file in the root, and still same error.
