Is a web chat based on phpbb feasible?

Post by mahaju »

Is there or has there ever been a web chat based on phpbb? It allows users to private message each other, which is kind of like a chat I guess. I don't know if this is possible but may be something like a group chat can also be implemented? And if I understand how phpbb works all the messages sent are also stored in the database. Is that correct? Given that phpbb has been around for so long and is open source, has something like this been done before? Or has it been established that this is infeasible?

There are at least two phpBB chat extensions available
