You can try the Ajax Chat.

There is also the "messenger style" XIM module

Hi All.

I spoke too soon!

I don't seem to be able to set permissions for groups to access the module.

Webmaster has access, but the module does not show up on the module's permission area for other groups. I can set the permissions in the block access area, but this allows certain groups to see the chat block but not participate in the chat. Very frustrating!

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks,

David

It seems like the module was not programmed to have permissions for specific groups.

This would be a new feature that would have to be added to it.

XOOPS makes the group permission capabilities available as evidence by the modules that make good use of it. it still needs work for Whos Online and PM. But some module developers are happy to get something talking from point A to point B, and decide to publish it for others to use while they develop their skills (or get the extra time) to program in group permissions. In no other area is this more obvious than in the world XOOPS chat modules.

What are you looking for exactly, for all groups to access any chat room, or specific groups to access specific chatrrooms?

The Ajax chat module is working flawlessly on my site. If you can't find it available by normal means, I'd be happy to zip up that directory and make it available.

edit: Ajax Chat Download

By "working perfect" do you mean you are able to set group permissions David and Mamba claimed were not available?

The permission issues were for the "Shoutbox" module.

Ajax Chat module is a different one.
