New shoutbox


Recommended Posts

I loved the old shoutbox because it uses AJAX. That means it retrieves new messages as soon as they are sent. You do not need to manually refresh to load the messages.


However, due to the problem of the server being unable to sustain our usage of that shoutbox, I have implemented a different shoutbox. Like the previous one, this tracks your user information. It allows you to post with your displayed name without needing you to enter your name, as long as you are signed in. It looks a little primitive compared to the AJAX chat but I hope it will suffice for now.


The shoutbox auto-refreshes. If you do not like it to keep refreshing, you can disable the feature and manually refresh when you wish to check for messages.
