Smart shout box

Post by ita4012 » Thu May 13, 2021 3:46 pm

Hi. I am doing some trials with Smart Shout box on my demo site.

Does anybody know why I can't see [youtube] clips preview (but only urls), if inserted in posts, while on the developer site extension demo, that is possibile?

My demo site: https://www.waterwind.it/demo/it/forum/ ... enger.html

Developer demo: https://thekrotek.com/joomla-extensions/smart-shoutbox

Have you configured the extension correctly?

This is another extension to embed videos.
https://extensions.joomla.org/extension ... allvideos/

I guess I did. I followed the instructions of the extension, but there's nothing about that. I already use allvideos, but it is designed to insert videos in the articles, not in shout box posts.

Your site shows a message "You are not allowed to use Shout Box" - that tells me I would have to be a registered user.

On the developer's demo, I don't see any "insert video" button on the toolbar (?), or any way to (for instance) add the You Tube embed video code.

Correct. AllVideos is a content plugin (which means it is designed to work with J! articles although, from the description on the JED
... to ... embed video & audio content from all major 3rd party media providers ... inside your Joomla articles, K2, Virtuemart, Kunena or any other Joomla component that supports "content" plugins.
The key word is component. Although Smart Shoutbox is both a component and a module, in your case you're talking about the module.

It may be possible—I don't know enough about the shoutbox module to say for certain—to let content plugins interoperate with the module. Look at the module settings, (on the Advanced tab) for the setting Prepare Content = Yes. This may help ... or it may not; I don't know. I don't use AllVideos or your shoutbox things.

Thank you for your replies. There's no particular button in frontend extension editor to insert [youtube] videos. In developer's demo version, it's enough to write the [youtube] video url in the shout box, and the video preview appears in the published message.

Anyway, I give up using this extension, 'cause it's making me waste too much time. Now, I get, once again, this error message "License check failed: wrong response from server. Try again later." I had solved with the help of my provider, changing the server where my site is installed. But, now that issue is there once againg, and I got tired. I will use something else.
