Take a look at this:
https://blueimp.net/ajax/

Its a nice lookig open source chat. It can be used as shoutbox and full chat system. Would this fine in UBB.threads?

/me likey..

as for replacing the shoutbox on the right, the realestate might be a problem.

i'm thinking it either needs to be run in it's own window or added into the main column.

i have a customer who wanted me to enhance the nakedshouts mod i did, but this looks like it would be easier to implement and have a TON more features.

i'm gonna try to implement it on my 731 development system. if it works, i'll post what i found..

good find, mr Zarzal!! laugh

hehe, 1st thing i found is that /me is '/action' in their IRC like commands.. so they didn't implement that.. (1st thing i'd do) wink

2nd thing i notice is that it uses mysqli, if available. ubbthreads should do this too. i have a version of mysql.inc.php called mysqli.inc.php that i'll include when(if) i implement this.

wow!

this is definately doable, after reading the documentation on phpBB3 integration.

the only thing right now question wise is:

1) standalone or integrated window?
2) smiley sharing
3) css sharing
4) actual shoutbox DB sharing (not sure if that's important)
5) integration into ubbt groups. ie: i might not want all of my mods to also be shoutbox mods.. so i'd create groups in ubbt like 'shoutbox mods', 'shoutbox admins' that are used instead.
6) flash + ruby implementation (i'd prefer this [server load and overall speed!], but it's the least probable install, because ruby ain't that popular yet) -- i'll prolly do 2 integrations.. a) standard php b) flash/ruby for teh geekz0rs laugh

Good stuff zarzal wink

ok, i installed it locally and noticed a nice thing.

there is an option to use this as a 'shoutbox', so it can probably replace the current SB.

might be good to have an option for this in ubbt admin cpanel, when i get this running..

ok, got it up and running.. there are some quirks to work out, but the user auth is entirely ubbthreads.

i need to have it automatically grab the Display Name and prevent '/nick' commands

also, i'm gonna make the smileys be a popup instead of displaying them all the time. reason being, my board has a huge number of smileys. what i'll do is take the 1st 16 (as ordered in the ubbt DB cpanel) and display them all the time, but add a [All Smiley] button to show them all..

great to see that you like it smile It would be also nice to have it as full size chat integrated in UBB.threads so I can replace the external AddOn-Chat that runs in iFrame on my site.
There is a littel Bug in this Chat. The Sound options work in IE6 but nut in FF3. there is no *pling* in FF3. The bug is reported to the author.

How would you tie this into your UBB user database so they log in to the chat using their UBB names?

Also How to have this so the Admin and Mod features would work with the users on your UBB as admins and mods in the chat?
