But you are sure, that you modded the css-files in your
Board? Do you have the code that thm posted, in your
normal css-files?

the mod is running fine, the code is in the defualt.css and yabb2.1 as it should be, when i am using a white or other background it shows up perfectly, when i use the black backgroung i can't change the font color to show up on the black background.

You didn't have an "extra" css-file for your black template? If you
have one, you need to copy the code into this css-file.

OK, I think i see the error, looking at the css files together as above i can see there is an error in the lower section of the black box, the template don't look right there is an alignment issue as well. I'll work on it, thanks.. * THEWISEOLDOWL

Have you added All of the above to your black.css file in the yabbfiles/Template/Forum folder ?

Great work on the shoutbox.  Its greatly improved since I've been involved.  One little thing that I've noticed.

When people post long strings without any spaces like when they post a long url it screws up the layout of the shoutbox.  A good idea I've seen used on other forums is when someone posts a long link the forum creates a hyperlink using the first 15 or 20 characters of the original link.

For example hxxp://www.boardmod.org/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1240306166/60#60  

would be hxxp://www.boardmod.org/yab...

There should also be a check for people who intentionally post long strings without spaces.  We should force a line break for strings with no spaces as to not screw the layout of the shoutbox.

ThM...

I can't say that I fully understand this code so you might just want to check it over, but this seems to fix the problem that DOT-COM mentioned:

In ShoutDisplay.pl find:

Code
Select All
sub my_wrap3 {
    $shout_message =~ s~(<.*>)*(\S{0,14})(\S{0,14})?(\S{0,14})?(\S{0,14})?(\S*)?(<.*>)*~$1$2 $3 $4 $5 $6$7~gi;
    $shout_message =~ s~(<.*>)?(\S{0,14})(\S{0,14})?(\S{0,14})?(\S{0,14})?(\S*)(<\/\S*>)~$1$2 $3 $4 $5 $6$7~gi;
    $shout_message =~ s~\s+~ ~gi;
} 


And replace with this (I've taken this straight from Subs.pl):

Code
Select All
sub my_wrap3 {
    $linewrap = 48;
    $message =~ s#<a href=(\S*?)(\s[^>]*)?>(\S*?)</a># my ($mes,$out,$i) = ($3,"",1); { while ($mes ne "") { if ($mes =~ s/^(<.+?>)//) { $out .= $1; } elsif ($mes =~ s/^(&.+?;|\[ch\d{3,}\]|.)//) { last if $i > $linewrap; $i++; $out .= $1; if ($mes eq "") { $i--; last; } } } } "<a href=$1$2>$out" . ($i > $linewrap ? "..." : "") . "</a>" #eig;
} 


The highlighted '48' is obviously the number of characters before the line wraps, so you can change it to whatever you think best (or even make it a variable so it can be changed in Shoutbox Settings).

Sorry ThM, but this has been bugging me all night. Anyway, there's a much cleaner way of doing it (because it's already working)...

ShoutDisplay.pl already requires Subs.pl, so all you need to do is this:

Totally remove this sub:

Code
Select All
sub my_wrap3 {
    $shout_message =~ s~(<.*>)*(\S{0,14})(\S{0,14})?(\S{0,14})?(\S{0,14})?(\S*)?(<.*>)*~$1$2 $3 $4 $5 $6$7~gi;
    $shout_message =~ s~(<.*>)?(\S{0,14})(\S{0,14})?(\S{0,14})?(\S{0,14})?(\S*)(<\/\S*>)~$1$2 $3 $4 $5 $6$7~gi;
    $shout_message =~ s~\s+~ ~gi;
} 


Find x2:

Code
Select All
		&my_wrap3; 


And replace with:

Code
Select All
		&wrap2; 


Now the wrap is actually working, but it's set to 80 - So the only thing that you actaully need to add to your code is this:

Code
Select All
$linewrap = 48; 


Hope that makes sense...

Thanks again Derek, works .....  Thumbs Upsup:

I've added a variable
Code
Select All
$linewrap = $lwshouts; 

so the admin can set in the shoutbox settings after how many chars comes a linebreak. Same we have in ShoutAdmin.pl ......

ThM and Derek, Great stuff I wasn't expecting such a fast response. I have just a few questions and a suggestion.

In forums with "Auto-link URLs? " disabled, if a user copies the url and pastes to his browser does the link with a linebreaked URL still work? With "Auto-link URLs? " enabled does the link work?

I can live with a manual setting for linebreak but I suggest it would be easier for the average user if you just set the linebreak variable to whatever the admin determines the width of the shoutbox to be?

For example,  If the user chooses 400 for the shoutbox width than make the line break at
$linewrap= $shout_width - (width of the vertical scrollbar if used + width of margins).

Great work guys, this mod is the best.
