An improved Ajax Chat

#1
I found a version of Ajax chat ( https://github.com/123Haynes/enhanced-Ajax-Chat ) that included a registration system in by default. Unfortunately, it is a bit buggy and is generally not stable as well. It's a bit out of date and some things are either a mess or don't work as intended.

Thanks to it being open-source, I was able to make some modifications and debug it for a chat recently, and I now plan on patching the remaining issues up, and releasing a modified version of it. (I love open source! Tongue )

Improvements over the original Ajax Chat will include

- /away command
- Online.php file for easy integration
- Nickname Registration
- /warn Command
- Better Login Interface
- Bug Fixes
- MOTD feature?

This won't be a particularly big "release." I'm primarily basing this off of the "enhanced ajax chat" that I found on github, so the credit for the registration system will go to the enhanced ajax chat developer. My primary goal is to release a debugged and stable version with some improvements to save time for both the coders and the non coders, since the "enhanced ajax chat" isn't exactly stable, but has a great registration system when debugged.

Stay tuned! Big Grin

Wow this is so awesome! I have a MyBB community that's been requesting a chat feature for awhile, and I've tried the solutions like Ajax Chat but wasn't able to get it to work.

Thanks so much for making this contribution! MyBB is in big need of a good chat solution.

What errors did the MyBB integrated version give? I think I've set it up before, but if I recall properly, it gave me quite a few problems.

I'll look into designing a much better integration system for MyBB. I think it would be useful for sure.

I don't remember the specifics, but when I followed all the instructions and loaded the chat page, I'd get an error message. Eventually I looked for other solutions, but couldn't get the IRC chatrooms configured correctly.

Yeah, for some reason it's tricky to get working. It often is obscure in actually giving any info on error messages, which is a bit annoying.

Any word on if you're going to release your modified version or not?

There are a few things I still need to finish. I had intended to design an ACP for it, but it looks like that won't be happening. I think I'll retheme it, remove some site-specific code, then release it.

Sorry about the delay. Work and some other things have taken more time away than I had originally expected.
