Chatbox module

Post  Psymon on Sun Mar 07, 2010 5:11 pm

Hey guys, I've activated a module for the forum. It's a chatbox, which is similar to a shoutbox.

Basically, any MEMBER (so a guest or someone who hasn't logged in can't see it) can chat to the other members that are online in real-time. We can use this to co-ordinate events and things and maybe have some conferences/discussion and whatnot.

To use the Chatbox, you must first be logged into the forum.
Then click the Log In button in the top right corner of the chatbox window.
The part where you type your message is on the bottom right, and the list of online users is the panel on the left of the module.

You can choose to automatically refresh the module (rather than clicking the Refresh button on the module - not your browser) by checking the box. Refreshing the page updates your screen of all the messages and chat that's happened.

Archives basically displays the history of previous chats.

There are also some commands available for members to use:
* /abs [reason] - this turns your status to Absent (same as AFK). eg "/abs toilet"
* /cls or /clear - this clears the chat screen.
* /me [message] - this is used for actions/emotions. For example, "/me is eating a pizza" would say to everyone "Psymon is eating a pizza".
* /exit [reason] - this disconnects you from the chatbox (same as clicking the Log Off button in the module). You can also include a reason for disconnecting that everyone connected to the chat can seem such as "/exit going to bed".

There are also some moderator/admin commands, but I'm not sharing those with everyone Razz

If y'all think this chatbox is a good/bad idea, post your views in this thread, as well as any questions you have about it!

Happy chatting!

Yeah, it's all good man.. you're not the only one with a life so we do understand what you're going through. Just make sure you keep popping in and out of the forums at least so that you can keep up to date on the stuff going on in the mTi clan, even if you're unable to contribute. No falling behind! Very Happy
