How Do I use the Shoutbox Module?
« on: November 16, 2015, 10:41:39 PM »
Please note that when TinyPortal is first installed your Shoutbox and the Left Panel are already on and set to 'Display on all pages and sections'. If at some point your Shoutbox has been disabled you can follow these steps to set it up to be active again.

Go to TinyPortal > Modules and check to be sure that the 'TP Simple Shout' is 'On'.

Next you will need a TinyPortal Block to display your Shoutbox.
First check to see if a Block already exists for the Shoutbox, if there is not one then do as follows:
Go to TinyPortal > Panels and Blocks > Blocks and select the 'Panel' where you would like to display your Shoutbox. Then click on '[Add Block]' and select 'TP Module' and then click 'Save':

That will bring you to the 'Edit Block' control page. Check that the 'Status' is set to 'On' and that 'TPShout' is checked, as seen in this image and then click on 'Save':

Finally, check your Panel Settings, making sure that the desired Panel is turned on.

Now your Shoutbox should be available where you have the Panel and the Shoutbox set to display.
