I have been trying forever to use the shoutbox here on RKC to shout at everyone once in a while, but it will not work for me at all. I asked Ratqueen a while back, and (bless her) even she has no idea why it doesn't like me. I shout nicely, honest.
Like my last issue in this forum, I am annoyed that I can't figure out what the reason is, but I will be grateful to anyone who might have an answer and can help me.
That is, unless y'all just don't want to see my big mouth on there. For that, I can't blame ya! *lol*
Side note: I am able to use shoutboxes on lots of sites, also forms etc... Heck, I even had one of my own in past years. *shrugs*
I'm afraid I don't have any solutions to offer (sorry!) but I just wanted to sympathise, I have trouble with it too Sue. But I have like a bagillion browser privacy add-ons that block all sorts of things and break a ton of stuff, so I just assume it breaks the shoubox for me too. I'm too lazy to actually find out which one is responsible though...

Does the shoutbox show up for you but you just can’t send messages in it? Or does it not show up at all? My only suggestions would be to try different browsers and maybe desktop mode on your phone if possible! Or maybe clear cache and cookies? I hope you can find something that works!
I type into it, and click the refresh button... nuttin.
Do you mean you write something, then click the refresh button to send it? The refresh button only refreshes messages already there. To send what you wrote, you have to hit Enter on your keyboard, there's no button to click to send it
I see there is now an option in the Shoutbox settings (or was it always there?) to have a "Send" button visible next to the Shoutbox, to use instead of pressing "Enter" to send a shout. I'm not sure which is preferable. On the one hand, besides making it more obvious, having a "Send" button would make it possible to insert a line break in a shout (I assume). On the other hand, most people are used to just pressing "Enter"... We could have a poll about it?

Honestly Sue I vaguely remember googling how to send messages on Proboard shoutbox way back when it first changed so I'm pretty sure I was confused too
I think having the Send button could be better. Sometimes I'd hold shift and hit enter thinking it'd do a line break but it just sends it through. Also gives you a little longer moving the mouse over the Send button to think if what you wrote would really be as funny to everyone else as it is to you

Thor: Oh no I have 44 profile notifications now-- I found a method to my showing madness but it makes notifications like crazy! I wonder if there's a way to turn off certain ones in settings haha

Arie: Thor, it should be possible to disable notifications per (sub)board! I know I've done it before.
