Currently they cannot; this is a limitation of the phpBB-specific server code I have written. Also, writing new slash commands requires knowledge of PHP, you just add native PHP methods to the "molten_chat_functions" object in "includes/molten_chat/molten_chat_functions.php", and you can call them by typing / before the methods' name. Within that file, I have provided several existing commands as good examples as to how to write new ones.wiolowan wrote:Thank you, moltendorf for your prompt reply.
The syntax of slash commands is on the first page of this topic, but I essentially need the example of defining/programming a new slash command. As for their usefulness, I guess that while the feature of right-button-menu based banning or starting a private chat is not realized, it could be done with a slash command, like this:
/private moltendorf You\'re kidding!
And again: how can separate chatrooms initiated?
Several of these limitations of the current system will be alleviated by release 9, and possibly even fully implemented; we were planning to have a whisper command done, a new client to allow multiple chat boxes in a single page, and tons of general improvements.
