Facebook-Like Shoutbox - CodeCanyon Item for Sale


Ad: Bluehost hosting

The “Facebook-Like Shoutbox” is a very powerful and original Shoutbox script written in PHP and Javascript. It just needs a MySQL database, uses jQuery, Ajax-Long-Polling and Json technology.

It is very simple to install this Shoutbox script in your website, it simply needs to configure one file and to include the Shoutbox PHP main file to your site template. That’s all it takes!

Why use it?

This shoutbox system uses the Ajax Long Polling Technology to provide great advantages : “It can be more efficient than a regular polling technique because of the reduction in HTTP requests” (learn more at : ). Obviously, this method delivers a very high refresh rate of the shoutbox messages!
( Note that uses the Ajax Long Polling method to run their Users Chat)

In addition, with this script, you can manage multiple shoutboxes that all have an original fixed bottom position style ( Facebook-Like ;) ).

Finally, this script has many powerful and original features as listed below and runs on PHP 4.2+.
