  • I’m trying to get ShoutCloud to work with my site.

    Now the instructions say that I have to do add this to my page

    <?php session_start(); ?>
    <?php include('shoutcloud.php'); ?>
    <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="shoutcloud/ShoutCloud-min.css" media="screen">
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="shoutcloud/ShoutCloud-min.js"></script>

    I used this plugin to try to add it but it doesn’t work. Any help?

  • It looks like you are trying to add it to a post or page. I would instead try hard coding it into your template e.g. sidebar.php or page.php.

    You would be best to do it on it’s own page and then use a page template to add the needed code that you have above.

    So I add

    <?php session_start(); ?>
    <?php include('shoutcloud.php'); ?>

    to the page.php template and add

    <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="shoutcloud/ShoutCloud-min.css" media="screen">
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="shoutcloud/ShoutCloud-min.js"></script>

    to the page?

    Ok, I got it to display but it isn’t displaying correctly… Help anyone?

    A link to the page would be useful in seeing what exactly you mean by “isn’t displaying correctly”.

    Here is the link

    Okay, it is due to where you place the code. If you are allowed, can you post the whole template file you edited and I will replace it to where it is meant to go in that file.

    Oh, by the way, this is another one I did. This one looks more like what it is supposed to look like, however, it still doesn’t function correctly…
    I checked the smilies and the path they are looking for; it is like /page/shoutcloud/smilies/bla but since wordpress makes dynamic pages, it isn’t able to be put where it wants to.

    I used a custom template because I didn’t want to destroy the main pages. It is basically a direct copy of the page.php

    Anyway, I have pasted everything here on pastebin.

    So, there is no way to do this?

    Did you include all of shoutcloud files in the template folder?

    Reason I ask is we may need to change how the include bit works and edit the file a bit to point to the correct location for the images as you pointed out.

    The template folder? I put a copy of the folder in the main directory and also another copy in the theme folder…

    Also, the images was just an example; all the stuff that is needed is in the shoutcloud folder which it can’t find.

    Right, I am going to give it a try on my site tomorrow and if I get it working I will post how I did it for you.

    Ok thanks. Do you need the shoutbox folder and php files?

    I know this is old, but it still isn’t resolved… Can anyone help?
