Seems like no one has requested this feature in this topic although have seen guys wanting this in other topics. Anyway what do u developers say? Personally I feel that having a chat application with option of having rooms would be a major feature in the forum.
Thanks. I hope this feature would be added in the next release 🙂

While this feature would be useful in some forums, I think the majority would find it "irritating" and ask how to shut it off!

Anyway, continienzo did a fantastic posting on this subjet. You can find it here: 

If this were to be added, I think it would have to be a configurable (turn it on/off in admin) option. That would take some serious development, and the dev dudes have their hands full as it is!



.....the man in black fled across the desert..........and the gunslinger followed.....
That would be cool if it were congifurable thru admin, but anyway I think its best to first fix the bugs that are in the current version and then look at adding features later as I am anxiously waiting for 1.9.3 release.

Ok may be not really a Shout box, but we could have a link on the menu bar (Inbox|Search...) saying Chat which opens as a popup window with a seperate chat application not necessarily integrated with YAF, the reason why I am asking this is coz I don't know of any free / open source chat application that I can use with this forum. If you know any asp or open source chat application, will greatly appreciate your assistance.

I've seen one for phpBB. I'll do some digging and see if I can find that.
