Chat Application ( Support Topic )

Enter key is not working to send a message on your demo site. Is it because it is a rich editor? On the screen I can see a simple field (without rich editor). Is it a setting? If no rich editor used, can emoticons still be used? Can you add a screen with settings?

Same as on here, CTRL and ENTER will post it, it uses the editors we are using now to reply so all emoticons etc and it looks a bit different to these editors as I made some css edits to make it look nice and match the theme of the rooms

Looks superb, great job! I would love to see a more compact view as an option where the poster name and message are on the same line (IPB3 shoutbox style) without profile icon. If you could add that this is a must buy.

There will be a setting in the update to use either profile images or names and maybe both, the message and name on the same line is not a good look when lots of text is placed in the message, same as if you embedded a link from your site / image / giphy from the toolbars etc, it don't use standard textareas for the messages it uses the same editor as you are using to reply here so there is lots more than basically just a line of text

Interested

Does it have (or can it have) the ability to show a single chat box above on the forum index as a widget? 

Not yet, it is something I have in mind for a future update though

Can you add an option that club leader can create a chat as well, not only owners? Or is this a group permission?

Quote

Only members of the club can chat in the clubs chatrooms

What about public club? All community members can chat there?

I am not to sure how clubs work, if leaders can create forums / download modules etc then they can create chatrooms, if only the club owners can create forums / download etc then they can only create chatrooms too, it will be a IPS setting for the permissions

This is group permission in ACP

There should be a chat there to check or uncheck for the group. If it is there then leaders can do it as well when their group is allowed to do it.

In ACP -> Select member group and the tab "Social" (see above), scroll down to Clubs:

screenshot-localhost-2019_03.18-17-13-58.thumb.png.2348b6b4efbf35333497f37d23741467.png

You see Allowed content areas in clubs. In this case the user that belongs to the group is allowed to create forum, blog, calendar, gallery and a (your :rolleyes:) FAQ area. (BTW: it would be better to rename it to FAQ at this place.) When Chat is integrated the same way, then the checklist is extended with Chat. If leader belongs to this member group and Chat is selected that he can create Chat as well.

Oh my god I will definitely be keeping an eye on this app.  We currently use arrow chat but I feel like this would work so much better, but I don't want to rush and slap $50 on a new chat system.

This looks interesting. Is there a chat tab count in the main menu or some sort of notification of who's in chat or a who's in chat block?

what do you mean count in the main menu?, there is a box next to the message list with a live online users to that chatroom, it will update when someone leaves or joins

It was a feature in previous IPS Chat version. In the main menu where Chat tab is, there was a number of currently active users in the chat. If there is nobody in the chat, then there is just a "Chat" if there are two users, then the menu tab looks like "Chat (2)".

No it don't have that, Next update some include some widgets for the chatrooms showing the online user count etc

What's nice about that is the users that aren't in chat see that there is someone in there. This is why I use babble chat, it has the same feature for the main menu. I may check out your chat down the road but if it doesn't have some good way to notify others that there are people in chat, its not going to work for me. Looks great though.

Wonder if you could theme it to make it look like the old and nostalgic MSN Chat Rooms 🤣

Looks so 1990 lol

Could it be set up so that two users can chat privately .. like an Instant Messenger?

ex:  USER 1 invites USER 2 to chat

Not yet, but it is something what will be coming in a future update, maybe not private 1 on 1 chatrooms but private messages etc, I will need to see the best way to do it
