Re: xoops chat integration (like facebook) ?

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

Re: xoops chat integration (like facebook) ?

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 ?

Re: xoops chat integration (like facebook) ?

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

Re: xoops chat integration (like facebook) ?

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.

Re: xoops chat integration (like facebook) ?

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.

Re: xoops chat integration (like facebook) ?

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