I am looking for a ShoutBox/TagBoard for OpenSocial app. I can find many by googling, however I want one where my app will pass the name in the code (which would be user;s displayname) without letting him override it. He will only be able to enter messages which has to posted with said name.


For my Orkut App: Flaunt It!

You will have a hard time finding a premade script that wil pass the name if you are looking at Shoutbox and similar apps.  They are designed so that registration, which you would need, is not necessary.

What web technology or language does your site use?  If the name is a must then are there any other requirements?  Of course you can develop your own or maybe modify an existing one but scripts like Shoutbox, et al are probably not the best place to start.

Let me know if you have a question about this.

Thanks for your comment.

This is for a orkut app, so its basically is in HTML and JS that runs in orkut withjn a iframe. I just want a way for users to drop a word or message. (The app is abt flaunting ur support for various themes like Euro 2008, US Elections and others) So in other words, its nothing more than add comment to a blog kinds

So I would love to hear your suggestions.
