THE CHAT ...

Hazz's picture

Yes, we have the shout box (with no way to type a shout) but could we get something put under "Active chat rooms" that will show who is in there in real time?

Also, is it only available to members?
Guess I could check huh.

My chat posts are going

My chat posts are going through, but no chat posts can be seen in the window. So I have no idea who I'm talking to. :(

Okay, I fixed the shoutbox issue. The permissions were wrong and only admins could add a shout. I'll test it with my jamesnotjim (i.e. regular user) account, but I'm sure it's working now. And, yes, authenticated users only. Visitors can see shouts, but not post new ones. I gave co-admin's delete and edit rites, too. You shouldn't ever need them, but if you do, you have them.

For displaying a list of available chat users (in the chatroom), I'll have to check.

Ah, true. I'll see if they

Ah, true. I'll see if they use a block to display that. If so, it can likely be set to display on more than just that page.

Fixed (but you know that, since we chatted about it)

For everyone else's benefit, then: fixed. There's a new block in the right-hand column called "In the Chat Room" that lists people, and it's on every page. This just indicates that they're in the "lobby" of the chat room. They have to click on a chat (e.g. testchat005, for example) to join it. But, since that's the only active one, they'll likely do that.

I don't see the point in a chat lobby and multiple chat rooms, at least not for this site. So, if there's a way to simplify it, I will. But, for now, this seems to be fully functional.

I agree. You don't need

I agree. You don't need multiple chats for this site. If you can simplify it it would be nicer but it's great to have a working chat room anyway it's set up.

Yeah, I'm really glad to have it operational again. I think the regulars will really enjoy it.
