I just updated to 7.6 and had a question about the Shout Chat...

I was thinking about using it like a Mini Chat Room for Logged in Members only.
I know in CP I can set so Guests will not see the Shout Box and therefore can't get to the Shout Box without a direct link.

As a convenience to members I can provide a direct link that opens up the Shout Chat. Problem with that is that Guests can then open the Shout Chat.

Is there a way to only allow logged in Members to see the Shout Chat? Or, that would check a direct link to see if someone was logged in? (ie: gives Message you must be logged in to use this feature)

I'll need to check into how difficult it'd be to make the "can view" permission carry over to the Shout Chat, versus just hiding the Shout Box. The "Can Use" permission carries over though.

Ok, I built a check that's proposed for v7.6.1, you can test on your forum if you feel comfortable with modifying files.

In /languages/english/portal_islands.php
PHP Code
Find:
$ubbt_lang['SHOUT_CHAT'] = "Shout Chat";

Add Below:
$ubbt_lang['SHOUT_ERR'] = "You don't have the correct permissions to view Shouts."; 



In /scripts/shoutchat.inc.php
PHP Code
Find:
	global $smarty,$user,$in,$ubbt_lang,$config,$forumvisit,$visit,$dbh,$html;

Replace with:
	global $smarty,$user,$in,$ubbt_lang,$config,$forumvisit,$visit,$dbh,$html,$userob;


Find:
	include("{$config['FULL_PATH']}/languages/{$config['LANGUAGE']}/portal_islands.php");

Add Below:
	if(!$userob->check_access("site","CAN_SEE_SHOUTS")) { $html->not_right($ubbt_lang['SHOUT_ERR']); } 



When a user without group access tries to load the page, they should get the new error. The wording of this error will likely change before release.

Gizmo,

You da man!! smile

If I set Guests permissions to not see the Shout Box they get the error message following a direct link to Shout Chat

For now I'll let everyone see it. If Members want it to be more private it's an easy switch to throw.

Works great, Thanks!
