Hello

I am wondering if there is a possibility to have my forums chat box assigned to a specific group at all?

Thanx

Nopes, thats not possible. UNless you have a forum for a certain group & add a XAT chatbox posted in one of the threads.

Make sure that the group is the only one who can view that forum and post a thread with the XAT Chatbox on it.

um yeah.. thats the bit i was asking how to do... the forums that i want to put the chat box in, is closed off.

Where do i get the XAT Chat box from plz? Would it effect the chat box that is set up for regular members at all?

1.You can Google it Wink

2. Do you mean it will affect the Forumotion chatbox for regular members? Nope.

thanx have done, but not sure how to add it to the private area that i want to add it too? or would it already assign itself to that part of the forum?

So running 2 separate chat boxes is possible and neither will affect the other? is that what you are saying?

You need to post the html codes for different chatboxes from xat into different threads of a two different sub forums, which have permissions set accordingly.

Im not sure how to set it up as a thread or in a thread?

I followed a tutorial and set a xat chat box up as a portal but it effected the forumotion chatbox and moved it to homepage, when i had set it up in "members area" and I've forgotten how to set it up back in members area cos i do not want it to be accessible to guests.

I was trying to move the portal into the private forums but am unsure how to do it (if at all possible). Then i was trying to limit the portals access and unsure how to do that (if this is at all possible too).

I want to set the xat chat box up in private forums but am unsure if setting it up as a portal is the way to go. I have a xat chat set up but not sure how to post it up in a thread and am basically guessing what to do.

Would using the "url link" in the message post work at all or am i grabbing at strings in the wrong direction?

1) Do you have html enabled in your forum?
2) Whats the code you got from xat?
3) Do you have forums setup with such permissions that only certain groups can see it.

Okay, first of all you'll need to have a restricted forum for your special group. Here's a quick tutorial on how to do that: http://help.forumotion.com/t38399-restricted-forums

...then you'll need to enable HTML on your forum: http://help.forumotion.com/t35636-enabling-html

...then once HTML is enabled you'll need to open up a new topic in that forum you've just created and post the HTML code for the XAT ChatBox. Wink
