Just tried it on my live site and got the repeated shouts from one posting.

Well if you can figure anything else out, that would be helpful. I can't reproduce it yet. And I've posted a couple of guest posts on mine. Does the guest post need to be in a certain position in the list of shouts or anything? You have the default setting to show 10 shouts?

I've tried both FF and Chrome with no results... Mind sending me the link to your site so I can take a look at it?

You only have to turn on guest shout, and post a guest shout right? Or am I missing something?


Yes Brad, that all I did.  Permissions > Can Post Shouts

I'd never seen this while testing, but then I never ever let guests post anything.

I did a quick test on this with the TP 1.1 that has all the new shoutbox features I added some time ago. It's not behaving the same way for me. So if someone else can verify these things, I think it's pretty safe to say that it's fixed in the beta version.

Alright guys, thanks a lot for looking into it. :) Will disable guest shouts for now, not such a big loss.

Happens in the latest build where I changed the shoutbox? Or only in TP 1.0  Willy?

Tested and confirmed multi-posting and broken image avatar shown when posting a guest shout.

Tested on Firefox, which does not show the broken image symbol, but the space where the avatar should be is a link to member profile, which of course is not found for a guest. Switching to Chrome the broken image image is shown.

Tested on Firefox, when a guest makes a shout, the shout is shown in the shout-box multiple times. My Shout box is set to show 10 shouts, and the guest is shown 10 time. When viewing the latest 50, the guest shout is shown 50 times. When viewing shouts in the admin area, the guest shout is shown only once, and removing it removes all instances of the guest shout from the shout-box and latest 50.

Edit: added to bugtracker

If you allow guests to shout you are going to have spam. My suggestion would be to turn of guest shouts, and only allow members to shout.

The broken avatar and multiple shouts look like bugs and should be fixed if they are confirmed as bugs. I'll try reproducing it on my own forum to confirm.

As far as the spam goes though I don't think there's anything reasonable to do about it, as the spammers aren't stopped by captcha, and anything more elaborate, and hence more intrusive to legitimate users, would kinda defeat the spirit of the shoutbox.
