I decided to mess about and get the functions to work on my VBA page. So just thought i'd share it with anyone that wants it

im using vb3.6.7 and Inferno vBShout Lite 2.5.1

Step 0.5: Backup files

Step 1: Go to vBulletin Options > Inferno vBShout Settings scroll down to "Page Deployment" and add in adv_index (should look like this:index,adv_index).

Step 2: Go to style manager > your theme >edit templates and find adv_portal.
Search for $navbar and under it add <!--{%SHOUTBOX%}--> and save.

Step 3: Next open the template > inferno_shoutbox_box and search for infernoshout/browser/infernoshout.js and edit to http://yoursite.com/forums/infernosh...nfernoshout.js and save.

Step 4: Open up your ftp software and browse to /forums/infernoshout/browser/infernoshout.js and search for infernoshout.php and replace all instances with http://yoursite.com/forums/infernoshout.php

Step 5: Still using your ftp software open up > forums/includes/class_bbcode.php search for

// [THREAD=XXX]
$tag_list['option']['thread'] = array(
'html' => '<a href="' . $prepend_path . 'showthread.php?' . $vbulletin->session->vars['sessionurl'] . 't=%2$s" title="' . htmlspecialchars_uni($vbulletin->options['bbtitle']) . ' - ' . $vbphrase['thread'] . ' %2$s">%1$s</a>',
'option_regex' => '#^\d+$#',
'strip_empty' => true
);

Replace with (or just add /forums/ highlighted red):

// [THREAD=XXX]
$tag_list['option']['thread'] = array(
'html' => '<a href="' . $prepend_path . '/forums/showthread.php?' . $vbulletin->session->vars['sessionurl'] . 't=%2$s" title="' . htmlspecialchars_uni($vbulletin->options['bbtitle']) . ' - ' . $vbphrase['thread'] . ' %2$s">%1$s</a>',
'option_regex' => '#^\d+$#',
'strip_empty' => true
);

And do the same for:

// [POST=XXX]
$tag_list['option']['post'] = array(
'html' => '<a href="' . $prepend_path . 'showthread.php?' . $vbulletin->session->vars['sessionurl'] . 'p=%2$s#post%2$s" title="' . htmlspecialchars_uni($vbulletin->options['bbtitle']) . ' - ' . $vbphrase['post'] . ' %2$s">%1$s</a>',
'option_regex' => '#^\d+$#',
'strip_empty' => true
);

Replace with (or just add /forums/ highlighted red):

// [POST=XXX]
$tag_list['option']['post'] = array(
'html' => '<a href="' . $prepend_path . '/forums/showthread.php?' . $vbulletin->session->vars['sessionurl'] . 'p=%2$s#post%2$s" title="' . htmlspecialchars_uni($vbulletin->options['bbtitle']) . ' - ' . $vbphrase['post'] . ' %2$s">%1$s</a>',
'option_regex' => '#^\d+$#',
'strip_empty' => true
);
Now your shoutbox should all function
