The Chatbox works great and it's very flexible. However, I wanted to add 2 chat boxes, 1 for general users, 1 for Admins. Is there a way to accomplish this? I wouldnt mind if it was just the same product using a different SQL database. It seems like the easiest way.

it's hard to search the entire thread but did anyone ever answer if it was able to make it so you can only chat one on one with someone if they're your friend?

Interesting also this question and i'm waitnig to know if is possible to have a sound when there's a new message on chat box.

Please some one can answer also to say that is not possible and ther's no way to have this additional mod.
Bye

No, I don't recall seeing that error here. You'll have to figure it out yourself or give us a lot more information.

No, this mod currently does not allow one on one chats, and I don't recall seeing any easy way to hack it to do that.

Mine's gone too but I wasn't sure if it was this mod. Apparently so. If we didn't have so many repeat posts perhaps we could get the occasional real bug fixed.

Yes, but it requires a lot of effort. Look back a ways and you'll find lengthy instructions. You probably don't want to do this unless you have a dedicated server (chat boxes in general will get you in trouble on shared servers; chat boxes that encourage people to hang around for hours at a time are even worse).

i'm sure that need a lot of effort but if i was able to do it i'd od surely because for me is really usefull and a sound for a new post i do not think taht create problems with shared hosting because also for the new private message ther's a sound and is not look like how a problem ).
Chat box for my site is important because users do not use a lot the ofrum but prefer the chat and so i'd like to give them this possibility but without sound or advice is not the best experience

You're looking at it backwards though. In fact, by lowering traffic in your forum, you are doing yourself a disservice.

your word are correct but i'm searching to use the chat to invite more users to use the forum and if they see that there are people on chat that answer may be go on forum.
Actually some one write on chat and no one answer except when see the post but is ever later.
is a mode to hope to increase the forum's users

You may want to consider a more complete solution then like Official AddonChat Product which won't use your own bandwidth, and has features like sounds. Well, I don't remember if sounds are in the free version or not. But at least you should read that thread to get some idea of what you're up against. Ditto the Flashchat threads.
