    66Users need to have specific permissions to be able to view the shoutbox and/or post shouts. An administrator can moderate and manage the shouts posted. A list of all shouts posted by any user is available under the url: /shoutbox, while a list of shouts posted by a specific user is available under the url: /shoutbox/%uid, where %uid is the user id of the specific user. To accommodate the needs of the notification module, suitable custom Drupal hooks were defined for the shoutbox module. Should other modules require to communicate with shoutbox (e.g. to analyze the content of the post), more hooks can easily be defined.
