Unfortunately I cannot make any chat workable in my website other than shoutbox.
shoutbox using too much server resources and i had to uninstall it.
now i test aChat 0.24 beta but i find it unworkable:
1- It repeat shouts. I mean for example i post the message "hello" and in some times it repeat the message like this:
i can remember it is the main issue with all chat modules that refresh the page.
2- only admin can post messages. it is weird. i set permissions for registered users group in aChat module. then i check system -> groups -> registered users but aChat was correctly set for "registered users"
do you check this module with a registered users account?
also this achat needs a little corrections and features:
1- in aChat/class/messages:
in line 320
$myrow['uname'] = empty($myrow['uname']) ? XoopsUser::getUnameFromId($myrow['uid']) : $myrow['uname'];
$myrow['uname'] = empty($myrow['uname']) ? XoopsUserUtility::getUnameFromId($myrow['uid'],true) : $myrow['uname'];
to show real name instead of usernaname. We can add an option in preferences too.
2- in aChat/templates/aChat.css
border-top: 1px solid #DDDDFF;
border-left: 1px solid #DDDDFF;
border-right: 1px solid #AAAAAA;
border-bottom: 1px solid #AAAAAA;
all hardcoded directions "left" should be removed.
3- in aChat/header.php
it is better to add a line:
From In the middle of nowhere
