Can we have our chat back?

Postby BlueMaxima » Mon Jun 20, 2011 9:20 am

Can we add a redirect somewhere on the forum that redirects to the link I've stuck below? It's a web-based chat interface for Freenode that will go straight into the adrift channel on Freenode.

http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=adrift

EDIT: I wonder why I can post this as a sticky.

I've been looking at chatrooms that integrate properly with the forum. One I was considering is 123 flash chat. The main benefits being that you don't have to create seperate logins, and you can see how many people are in the room from the forum itself.

You can't go wrong with IRC - it is free after all.

Did you check in on the suggestion I sent you earlier regarding a chat room connected directly to the forum?

That's why I'd been looking around. :)

I can't get the mini chat link to show up for the subsilver theme (not sure I got the name right)

Ah, thought it was there by default, but will take a look.

Might be an idea to open chat in a new window rather than the current one

I opened mine in a new tab (middle clicked). I do it mostly out of habit with any link though. What browser you using these days?
