Shoutbox not showing in plugin list

edited March 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
For some reason shoutbox is not showing up in the plugin list yet I've installed a ton of other plugins without any issue.

    I bet you've set the permissions for at least one file of Van2Shout wrong, so that apache can't read the file ;-)

    Try to navigate to {}/plugins/Van2Shout/default.php

    If you receive any kind of error, try the following:

    If you're running a linux-server, and you've got access to the terminal:
    #cd {vanilladir}/plugins
    #chmod -R 770 Van2Shout
    #chgrp -R {apacheuser} Van2Shout
    #chown -R {apacheuser} Van2Shout

    Otherwise please contact me by mail ;-)

    That was it, thanks. How do I change the color of the shoutbox text?

    You will have to edit class.van2shouttext.php and van2shoutHistory.php...

    I will create an article about it on my blog, ok?

    Oh, by the way...

    You should upgrade your shoutbox to 0.5.5, all older versions doesn't limit the maximum number of posts correctly...

    Here i described how to do it...

    It's not that easy, but yet it's not impossible ;-)

    If you try to change the font color, please give me some feedback if this post is 'understandable', I'm not sure if anyone will be able to follow what I'm trying to explain ;-)
