Thank you for taking the time to type all this. I appreciate it, and now have a better understanding.kasimi wrote:Default settings is not the same as initial settings. For example, if you change the location of new messages from top to bottom, how would you determine for which users to apply this setting in terms of initial setting? There might be existing users that want it at the top and you would overwrite their preference. That's the reason why the default settings apply only to those users who don't have the permission to change that setting, and that's also why there are no "initial settings" the way you understood it.
Yes, there is. When installing mChat a few permissions are set to yes for the user role "Standard Features", users being able to change the location of new messages is one of them. If you don't like your users do decide for themselves and want to force everyone to have messages added at the bottom, set the permission to no for that role and in the default user settings set the location to bottom.evilpeppard wrote:is there still even an option in each user's CP for mChat?
ACP -> Users & Groups -> Manage users -> find the user for whom you want to see the individual settings -> select Preferences in the upper right dropdown -> scroll to the bottomevilpeppard wrote:Where is the 'user management' and 'Preferences' section you are referring to, please?
My confusion mainly was, prior to 2.0.0-RC3, it seemed when I installed mChat, then made it so all new chats were on the bottom, this appeared to be a global setting for all users, and one that I tested with a few different users.
It now seems new settings were added to 2.0.0-RC3 so now, regardless what I have set as the global user setting default for new chat messages, all my users now get the new messages at the top, whereas before they were getting them at the bottom, including me.
If I wanted to do what you said and remove the ability for users to change/customize their own mChat settings so that my defaults were the defacto, where would I change that, please? I see you state it is in the 'Standard Features' role, but where can I find that?
Thank you again for your time and understanding.
