Solved Chat Box Help

Post by Royer Blaze on August 31st 2015, 10:43 pm

I've been asking around and I hear different results as to if what I am wanting is possible or not. On my page I have a chat box that I have set to appear on every page. Which is good, but with the site I am wanting to run... I'd need a way to make each chat box an individual box so that when someone is on one page and another on a different page... they couldn't see what the other has posted unless they go to that page.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

There is not an option for the default chatbox. It might be possible with a code.

Not sure if any such code exists yet, though one should be able to be developed.

Sure, just have to wait for someone who can code it for you. Your best bets would to wait on @Ange Tuteur or @JScript to help you. There may be other users that can it for you as well Very Happy.

I don't think that's possible mate, unless you use some kind of a chatbox that isn't originally in your forum.
Ex: Chatango, Chatcave, etc.. if you would like a list of all available chat box services i'll be glad to do it

I'd originally thought of something like that, but even if I use one that isn't originally from the forum... wouldn't I need to use several chat boxes to reach the desired effect? As each chat box would still be linked so whatever is posted in one box on one page would show up on the other?

You can use chatcave.me, you can create more than one box and for each page, link a chat box for each page that way they won't be all connected together.

Hope i helped!

Hmm, I'll definitely have to look into that and will update when I see if I can figure it out. Would it tell me how to go about linking a chat box to each page separately?

*EDITED* Is there a way to add it to the actual page, or would I just have to use it like it is, popping up in a new window? Is it good for keeping chat logs? This very well may be a small solution till something gets made.

It's even got the built in dice roll feature I worked so hard to get active in my own forum chat box. And it lets me make multiple chat rooms with the same email so that is a plus...

If it is HTML code, you can activate it for the forum and add the code to a post.

I found this code on their forum support site, but don't know where to put it and it doesn't seem like their help/support forum is active anymore.

Hello,

This is html, you can simply post it in a topic on your forum by activating html both in the acp and your profile, like SLGray said.

You can activate html in the ACP by going to ACP-->General-->Messages and e-mails-->Configuration-->'Allow html?', tick yes and save. In your profile I believe it should be in prefrences.


If your the one who is going to be posting it up, then it only matters that you have it activated in your profile. Smile

Got it working, but one of my admin says they can't see it, just nothing but codes. When logged out they can see it though. Is it because they don't have it activated in their profile?

Is there a mass way to turn on HTML?

Wierd, it shouldn't matter whether they have it on or not, because it should only matter that the poster has it on. In answer to your question, unfornatelly there is not. You will have to manually turn it on in everyones' 1 by 1. Sad

Hmm, Odd. I might have to just play around with it for a bit and see what I can manage... but it does work and show up. So this could probably be checked Completed... unless anyone else has any thoughts?

*edited* Checked with some of my other members and they can't see it either... they just see code, unless they are logged out then they can see it.

A way to allow HTML for everyone:

ACP >> General >> Messages and e-mails >> Configurations >> Allow HTML check on yes >> Save

If you want the chatbox to appear in the main page, you can create a new subforum and in the description of that subforum you can add this code in it which will make the chatbox appear(i've done this in my forum):

Code:

<iframe seamless="" src="CHATBOX LINK HERE" frameborder="0" style="margin: auto; width: 640px; height: 640px;"></iframe>
Of course you can modify the chatbox size to the size you want by changing the width and height in the code to what suits you Smile


NOTE: If you allow HTML just now, users that have registered on your forum before you allowed it will have to allow it via their profiles:
Main page >> Profile >> Preferences >> Always allow HTML check on yes >> Save


Hope i helped Smile

EDIT: Didn't notice that they already told you how to activate the HTML, but still this applies:
If you allow HTML just now, users that have registered on your forum before you allowed it will have to allow it via their profiles now

You and everyone was a big help. Seeing as I got to get some of my members to change their setting and newer users won't have to do so... and I have a working chat box like I want. I'd definitely like to thank everyone and put this as completed.

Actually you can, go to their profile and hit administrate profile. This will take you into the admin panel where you should be able to set it for them. Almost every field that can be modified by thd user, can also be modifed by an admin, plus an additional few admin only fields. Very Happy



Your welcome for all the help as well, I will be happy to provide it again anytime Wink.

Odd thing is I did that earlier and didn't see the preference option to set it for them. I looked through the stuff that can be edited but didn't see that option.

It is probably not marked prefrences, but you should still have the option to allow html itself. I would find it hard to believe that wouldn't, very nearly everything else is there, including strictly user only fields such as avatar, etc.

Just did a double check, saw a spot for preferences, but didn't see that listed. Nothing. I go to their profile and then I go to the bottom of theirs and there is a spot to go to that you can administrate it, which takes me into the ACP.
