This is bulletin board software... not chat software. Besides not all people want a chat program.

So it should be a mod at most... not a feature.

That doesn't mean we won't write a piece of chat software that interfaces with SMF though. :)

I never used a chat mod with any yabbse forums I frequented so I do not know much about it.  The few people on my smf board have already requested I install it when  available.

Was the chat (yabbse) like in IRC where many joined and could talk, or was it on a more 1 to 1 level?  Like instant messages.

the creator of YaBB SE's mod is the one that said he'd write it for SMF

although I could do it, I rather work on my own that no one else is doing or planning to do  (^^)

Was the chat (yabbse) like in IRC where many joined and could talk, or was it on a more 1 to 1 level?  Like instant messages.

it's an IRC Java client integrated to the forum

Try the attached mod.  The options in the admin center aren't there, all the settings are hard-coded into the template.chat.php file, but it works.
Title: Re: Chat in future of SMF ?
Post by: whiterabbit on April 19, 2004, 01:16:38 AM
um... if you want just something like IrCQ-Net

http://www.icq.com/panels/ircqnet/

It's kinda a very easy to write mod  :P IMHO
Actually it shouldn't take me more than 10 minutes to write a roughly usable one, using IrCQ-Net  ;)

But for something else that is pure php and fully integrated might take a lot more time,
and I wanna see one too  :D

That's basically php's way of saying "I didn't expect to find a semicolon here!". Make sure you don't have a missing ' or something someplace. If you can't figure it out, post that line here along with a few lines above and below it and I'll see what I can do for you.
Title: Re: Chat in future of SMF ?
Post by: dschwab9 on April 19, 2004, 03:43:20 PM
Try downloading it again (I updated the attachment on the other post).  There were actually 3 semicolons missing.  Sorry about that.  I never intended this for distribution, like 10 million people have asked for it though, so I packaged it up.
Title: Re: Chat in future of SMF ?
Post by: Springer on April 19, 2004, 04:40:33 PM
Would it takeup to much resources to have the chat be on a person to person level only?
Title: Re: Chat in future of SMF ?
Post by: Anguz on April 19, 2004, 04:47:09 PM
you can have private chats in IRC with other people, so if the client is good, it'll let you do it

the one in YaBB SE let you have private conversations with others in the room, iirc

The mod I posted uses everywherechat.com, and it will do a person to person chat.  Most decent IRC clients can.

I'm not sure what you're asking, but if you're saying you can't see the code I posted, here it is without the code boxes:

Replace:
<td width="100%"><center><script language="JavaScript" src="http://irc.everywherechat.com:8000/Java/e.js?room=' . $roomName . '&roomstab=false&width=' . $roomWidth . '&height=' . $roomHeight . '&nick=' . $chatName . '&keypass=&paramfilename=embedded.prm"></script></center></td>

With:
<td width="100%"><center><script language="JavaScript" src="http://irc.everywherechat.com:8000/Java/e.js?room=' . $roomName . '&roomstab=false&width=' . $roomWidth . '&height=' . $roomHeight . '&nick=' . $chatName . '&keypass=&paramfilename=italian.prm"></script></center></td>

You're just changing paramfilename=embedded.prm to paramfilename=italian.prm in the link to the java applet.

The mod probably needs to be reapplied, go through all of the steps again and make sure the necessary code is there in your files (the new versions), make changes if needed, and reupload the changed files.

If you do make a chat.... can I make a suggestion for it?

Make it like PHPmychat... or something like that (I have not used the yabbse chat)...... but the reason is that my other Yabb 1.3.1 board has a chat mod and the chat is anchored at the bottom... BUT when the screen refreshes, the screen moves up and down fast and its hard to keep track of where you are.  The chat should archive as you continue chatting without the screen jumping all over upon refresh.   

When you get to 50 lines with the chat screen jumping all over on refresh, its hard to keep track, and doing that every 10-15 seconds becomes a pain.

Just a suggestion :)

Well, you'll probably like the chat mod for SMF then. It uses the fancy Akiva ChatSpace software - check out http://www.everywherechat.com for more. You'll need to make sure you've got Java enabled for that to work.
Title: Re: Chat in future of SMF ?
Post by: bluevoodu on May 31, 2004, 11:43:38 PM
that is loaded through everywhere chat, right?

IE its not local onto my webserver?

IS there a chat mod coming in the future that will be integrated with SMF and that would be local on my webserver?

thanks,

Yes, it's loaded through everywherechat. At this time I don't know of any other chat mods that would be on your webserver only. However, I'm sure someone could always make a custom chat mod for you... There are a lot of good php-based chat scripts out there - phpOpenChat (http://phpopenchat.org), X7 Chat (http://www.x7chat.com) and Andys Chat 4.5 Gold (http://www.ks1.ch/phpscripts/chat_en.php) to name a few. There's a nice list here (http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Chat_Scripts/index.html). If you find one you like, let me know and I'll see if I can whip something up for you.
Title: Re: Chat in future of SMF ?
Post by: bluevoodu on October 03, 2004, 10:49:15 PM
Just a question... is it possible to integrate PHPMyChat :http://www.phpheaven.net/en.html
with SMF?

So that it can read the users from the board.. and only the users of the board are allowed to use it?

I know this can be done, I have seen it with Vbulletin.

What happens is the chat is stored at: www.your-site.com/chat
but somehow it can read the users from the messageboard...

Would you (or anyone) know how to do this?

Thanks!
