    Do you like my plugins? Consider buying me a beer!

    We just bought you 5, if you lived in Canada. Unfortunately what we sent you for the last plugin weekend will barely cover even one pint in UK probably

    I live in the Netherlands though πŸ˜‰ I can buy a couple with it! Thanks again for that by the way!

    You deserved it - but be forewarned I will never lose a plugin weekend again πŸ‘Ώ

    I still have videochat up my sleeves! (It's still not finished...)


  • @Mr_Waffle

    Just for coming up with the idea of videochat, you have my vote.

    And talking about votes, not that I'm trying to put ideas in some coder's mind, who's going to take up the task of coding a voting/survey plugin, so that we can have a proper vote on these plugins πŸ˜‰

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    @planner hm I might have some ideas for it, might try it if I have the time this week. Hopefully no one else beats me to it πŸ˜›


  • @Mr_Waffle

    That's the spirit, and if you need design/UX ideas or input, we can work on this together. Don't trust me for code, though.

    coding a voting/survey plugin

    @julian was thinking of using some sort of third party polling API. The three of us actually dealt with an API earlier in our days but that was a paid service that none of us can afford as open source. any ideas?

    EDIT: or we could just write it from scratch, of course πŸ™‚

    I have some ideas from scratch πŸ™‚ Haven't looked at the details yet but I think it should all be possible.


  • Weird, can't send messages and even can't see the shoutbox top of the page/bottom of the page.

    nodeBB 0.3.1, pulled, restarted

    edit:

    ahh now finally got these

    @phreaker Soo does it work now or not? Those warnings don't really mean anything, just that I have to update it again πŸ™‚


  • @Mr_Waffle not 😞

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    @phreaker Are you using any custom theme? Other plugins that change something on the homepage?


  • @Mr_Waffle No and no - and it was my first plugin after a new vps(ubuntu 12.04)+nodeBB install. But i updated Redis later after i saw in the admin menu the current version (from 2.2).

    staticDir is deprecated, use staticDirs instead

    the same error for the RSS plugin at the nodebb start but thats works fine without any problem.

    This is a warning, not an error. Although, it works with this deprached function.

    Can you send me your forum URL through chat? I can try to see where the issue is.

    Issue :
    shoutbox block is in the forum stats block

    shout.PNG

    How can i fix it ?

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    @toolito this is because I currently have a few hardcoded positions for the shoutbox. (Before .home, and before .footer-stats) In most themes this works nicely, except when there's a wrapper around any of those classes πŸ™‚ All of this will be resolved with this.

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    Updated with 0.0.7, small update

    • Use staticDirs
    • Add minver
    • Correctly check for anon... oops
    • Sound now only plays if the message is from another user
    • Other sound!
    • Use the templates system instead of being silly

    So only some behind the scenes changes... This release somehow fixes the issue some users were having where the shoutbox wouldn't show on 0.3.2.

  • GNU/Linux Admin

    Awesome work @mr_waffle! 🍺


  • I would love love love to be able to set this as a side block like on my xenforo setup.

    I know this would probably only work well on some themes though..
