Another new shoutbox application that can easily be added to WordPress. It is not a plugin yet, but it really struck me as interesting, and as with anything that there are many of, one more just adds to the choices and opportunities.
smiletag is a free (GPL License) shoutbox written in PHP. Interactive, easy to use, mini-message board with powerful template system.
Currently these are the features of smiletag :
- Powerful template system, easy-to-modify templates using only simple tags, no programming skills required.
