Hi,

Unfortunately no, however, if you have a forum exclusive to that group, and you can copy/paste a code from an external source, such as, xat.com, and paste it there, then those members can see it, but other's can't.

However, if the members give out the URL to the chatbox, then unfortunately, they can access it.

NO. DO NOT USE XAT. NEVER.

Sorry for the big letters, but I had to warn you. Razz Once it's there, you can never remove it. EVER! You'll be doomed to having it their for the rest of you website's life! Unless they changed it from that, which is how they had it a year or so ago... it was in the small print, I'm lucky I read that. Razz Though one of my buds didn't...

Sorry, I just wanted to warn ya. Smile I wouldn't risk it.

However, We could simply remove the code, they can't follow it up if it's not on their servers dwarf

There is nothing related to code. You can make a forum visible for whoever you want to see, only thing is that those users should be in a group. Then post the chatbox code in a post in that forum.

I just figured out by accident! If you have the sidebar enabled, use the chatbox module there, and set the permissions to support staff/mods/admins.

And Sanket, there is no way to make the built-in chatbox module custom for groups, right?

There is no built in default way in the admin panel. But, the workaround to it was already mentioned to you.

I mean while still using the original module thing that sits on the home page. Razz There are some younger users on the website who don't understand otherwise, and have a hard time navigating to the different threads. Laughing

Thanks

There is something you can do that would be similar. I have done it on mine. Its not a chat box, but its a chat room.

Create a new group name it chat box *i am hoping you know how to set up groups and their permissions* Smile

Then create a new category or forum whichever you prefer, call it chat box. SET your Forum Permissions Control to ADMIN only on all counts, so that no members see this while you are tweaking.

go to
http://www.parachat.com/basic/get-yours.html

create a chat-room to your specifications. DO NOT ENABLE network roaming, and i would suggest naming it something that cannot be figured out easily.


now go to your category or forum.

Make a new post, pick which code you want to use for the chat. You can actually post them embed code in there, and then post it. When the post is opened the chat room will be there or you can paste the link to the chat.

Once you have done that go to your group settings and to your CHAT BOX group and add the members you want to be able to see it.

GO BACK TO categories and forums on the admin panel, select the chat box category/forum, go to permissions and check the box for your chat box group. Then save.

That should be it. You have a private java chat that only certain members can see Smile

Hope this helped
