-Installed the SQL Database by copy/pasting from the included SQL file. Some of the syntax was outdated and produced errors, but a quick google fix solved the issue. ( Old syntax used is "TYPE=MyISAM" where it should be "ENGINE=MyISAM". )
-Opened net_tag php and posted successfully using the form. To observe the post and the actual shoutbox itself showarchive.php must be opened. Aside from a funky layout and some grammar errors the functionality is excellent.
-showarchive.php displays the posted data in a clean-cut fashion. there were no issues on this page aside from having to navigate to a seperate page to post
Some notable issues are index.php being completely useless, only containing a few lines of text. There also seems to be some redundant code in net_tag.php regarding emoticons. Most of the processing/text replacement in JS is only necessary in showarchive.php
I have placed showarchive.php in an iframe inside net_tag.php while doing some layout and grammar correction and it functions wonderfully. The admin login with the IP Ban feature is excellent.
It needs some work, but most of the essential elements are there. Aside from the grammar, layout, useless index.php and outdated sql syntax the only other issue is that it does not include an auto-delete script for old shouts. If you do not include such a script and decide to use this repository then you may be left with an infinitely long page of text.
