My bad, I think now it was my host as the entire forum I wasn't working on barfed up a 500 error and I couldn't access anything on that one.
... figures eh ...  Roll Eyes

edit: No it isn't my server.  Everything is back up and working now and I've reinstalled YaBB2.5.2 and I can't get the shoutbox to work at all. All it does is throw the 500 error even if I set all the shoutbox file permissions to 777.

Hey guy...

I just installed this on my beta site for YaBB 2.5.2 and I'm a little lost.

Quote:
Copy both files below to your cgi-bin/yabb2 directory (same directory as YaBB.pl)
- /yabbfiles/Templates/Forum/default.css
- /yabbfiles/Templates/Forum/yabb21.css
- Apply Shoutbox24_templateRC5.5 mod
- Return both css files above back to their original directory
- Transfer all changed files to your server.

•cgi-bin/yabb2/Templates/default/BoardIndex.template (ASCII)
•cgi-bin/yabb2/Templates/yabb21/BoardIndex.template (ASCII)

Nothing in the mod file alters the template file nor the .css files.  So frankly, I'm not too surprised when I don't see any ShoutBox.  Where should it be showing up?

Yes it does add to the BoardIndex.Template and .css files. If you follow the instructions, the shoutbox will show at the bottom section of your forum in the 'Forum Statistics' area to the left side.
Note: Make sure you're also installing the template mod for this as well. I think that's what you're missing. Smiley

Let me know if you get it working on a YaBB2.5.2. I still can't get the shoutbox to work on this version of yabb for some reason. It works just fine on 2.4, 2.5ae but when I install on 2.5.2 all I get is the server 500 error. I have no idea why and it's frusterating the hell out of me.

Setting ShoutDisplay.pl to permissions of 777, there is no change.  I don't know what would be causing this either.  I guess there's some sort of internal file-handling or directory structure change between 2.5 and 2.5.2.

Hi,

For the 500 error, add this line of code to the top of ShoutDisplay.pl:

Code
Select All
use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser); 


It should give you some more information on why the 500 error is happening.

Thanks Derek. I'll give that a try next time I'm working on my other site. Or if Imp_In_Training tries it out first. Wink
This is the only reason I haven't updated our radio forums to 2.5.2.

Next time I'm tinkering with it, I'll be sure to try.  My priority right now is to get my dice rolling back on my site.  Sorry.
