I have been following and using mChat for sometime now and I have to ask

Is there a reason that mChat is still in RC and not been submitted for release?

I submitted mChat for validation on 26 October, it's waiting in the queue.

I haven't tested PHP 7 but I haven't heard any complaints either.

What does doesn't work mean? What's the style's name? Does it inherit from prosilver? What's your phpBB version? Does your phpBB version match your style version?

It works fine with PHP 7. I had MCHAT installed on a phpBB 3.2 demo board I setup running on PHP 7 and no errors at all from it.

Did you ever find a solution to the "input box" staying wide if you enter a long message and click the "submit button". As like you said before, if you don't press the submit button and instead use keyboard ENTER key the input box goes back to small original size. It only seems to happen when clicking the submit button. I played around with MCHAT CSS file for ProSilver trying to fix it but had no joy?

Go to /ext/dmzx/mchat/styles/canvas/template/event, create an empty text file index_body_forumlist_body_before.html and add this code:

Code: Select all

<!-- IF MCHAT_INDEX and MCHAT_LOCATION --><!-- INCLUDE mchat_body.html --><!-- ENDIF --> 
Refresh your board cache.
This template event index_body_forumlist_body_before.html doesn’t exist in index_body.html in prosilver. Only the AFTER exists: https://wiki.phpbb.com/Event_List#index ... body_after.

You are correct, prosilver doesn't have this event, but Canvas does, which is why the fix you quoted only works for Canvas. :)

the mChat is so powerfull, thank you very much for this extension.

the only thing i am missing is a "private chat" - a chat session with only 1 friend (the other users cannot join). it would be nice if i can invite a user.
for example at the forum index i click to the user XXX at "who is online"-line. the xxx user will get then a "invite-box-message".

  • Open ext/dmzx/mchat/styles/canvas/theme/mchat_custom.css
  • Add these lines at the bottom:

    Code: Select all

    @media only screen and (max-width: 700px), only screen and (max-device-width: 700px) {
    	#mchat-body {
    		overflow: auto;
    	}
    }
  • Save the file and refresh your board cache.

Hi there!

Probably it has been asked before but I didn't find something helpful through search, yet.

I just upgraded my forum from 3.0 to 3.1 and reinstalled the chat again. All fine. Well, some style issues because it wasn't made for the theme I use but that should be no problem. I'm web developer. Should be able to make things pretty.

My question is: Is there a way to show the chat on a custom position? Currently it can be placed above or below the forums, as far as I can see. I would need it beside the forums. ^^'
Well, I could move the events in the template but that doesn't seem clever to me, since other extentions/functions might use them as well.

In 3.0 I just pasted the code where I needed it to be. The chat(s) on my forum had always been in a sidebar (since phpBB2), so I'd like it to be there again. There are other extentions that I'd like to be in the sidebar as well.
Now I'm wondering how to do this best.

Thanks and regards,
Silvi

EDIT: Meanwhile I found a way to get things like I want them. Thanks.
