A private Chat like Facebook?

Post by Der Dude » Tue Jun 11, 2019 9:37 am

Hello,

on Facebook there are the little chats (no Shoutbox) with which the users can chat with each other privately. Is there such an extension synonymous for phpbb forum? mChat shoutbox I already have. Some users also want to write directly in private.

Why don't they just get each other on skype or whatsapp?

Can they not use the PM system for that?

Excuse me. I am not on the board to talk about motivations but to find out if there is this tool for the board I used.

Xobor forums have these little chat boxes, they also have Woltlab boards and in prefabricated boards they are also available.
That's why I would like to know where to find them, if they exist for php forum too. Because there is a need.
And it does not matter for my request why there is a need ;-)

Just pointing out that when there's a very easy way around it you might find it very hard to find someone to code this just for you.

It sometimes helps to fully explain the reason behind what you want and why because it might help your chances on getting it made.

This extension (in development) takes a lot of inspiration from Facebook, including private chat: viewtopic.php?f=456&t=2490661

JV Footer chat works perfect.
But I think it's only for "donors" ...

personally, i recommend using discord (or similar). no home rolled thing or phpBB extension will ever be as featureful, and by using an external service, you won't have to maintain or support it yourself.

here's a post showing you how to integrate it into phpBB nav menu:

viewtopic.php?f=496&t=2443831&p=14862496#p14862496

Image

my example only exposes the chat dropdown to logged in phpBB users (and not bot users).

it shows who's online on discord and will pass the phpBB username so it autopopulates when the user joins the chat. also, your users don't need to create discord accounts, so there's no friction. you click a couple things and just start chatting.
