Shoutbox (Asynchronized chatbox)?

Post by Superboop on February 22nd 2013, 2:23 pm

I can't confirm this, but I'm pretty sure that the current AJAX chatbox is synchronized; meaning, there must be multiple people at a time for them to recieve messages.

But since there is often not a lot of people in my forum (a lot of people in different timezones), having many people at once is impossible.

Is there some sort of way to make it so that the chatbox is asynchronized (more of a shoutbox)?

Are you talking about the default FM chatbox, that came with your forum? If you are, it saves the messages until a chatbox moderator (any admins + who ever you add to be one) clears the chat.

The chatbox is asynchronous. Messages you send are stored. It doesn't make a difference how many people are in the chat. If you type in a message and send, it is sent to the server and stored. Other people will then see that message.
