    Shoutbox is free for download from vbulletin.org for licensed members.

    I doubt vBulletin.com will have a shoutbox soon, or version 3.

      vB3 will not have a shoutbox on the logic that vB is a bit more complex than a shoutbox, what can be posted in that could be posted in the forums.

        This expected by most of us, and is just fine, but as to "what can be posted in that could be posted in the forums"...Well, the shoutbox is meant to be used as a type of IRC, and doing that in the forums would get just a bit spamish.

          vBulletin won't have a shoutbox for the same reason TVs don't come with tomato slicers. vBulletin is forum software.

            TVs don't come with tomato slicers? I guess I got lucky than.


            But seriously,he's right. A shoutbox is a completely different type of program than a forum is.

            Best bet is to go to vb.org and use one of the shoutbox hacks there.
