I see also the XOOPS competition has ported something like this, if this could serve as an inspiration for someone

Great news someone.

I too think the Anant Garg version would be more simple to port. Was dabbeling a little with this too to see how it could be done.

From a block I encountered several problems.

1) The css disables the scroller and gives blank screan in browsers except FF
2) The username is undefine even if $_session['username'] is define in both chat.php and theme.

I did discover though that only way to keep url relative in ajax is to paste chat.js directly in the html and change the get urls to '<{xoops_url}>/chat.php?so-on-so-on'

Maybe it can be implimented directly into themes as a plugin with the sql as a function in chat.php ?

Yet another cool messenger service. Though not placed in footer like facebook it maybe possible to port to XOOPS like this. At least version 1 - 2 looks very simple.

download and demo here

That certainly looks good enough for me. IMHO the key is having something that allows you to see who's online and then be able to chat with them in a click or two, whether it's Facebook style or not.

Urbanspaceman has a module I wrote for him which is a facebook chat, he asked me not to really talk about it or distribute it so I haven't but it is facebook style and uses a Javascript to chat... it was not jQuery though which would be much better to use.

Hmmm, maybe you can persuade him to release it publically?
