I really love the shoutbox plugin, however since it is not compaitble with the latest version of node bb.
I was thinking how can we add ALL the forum users in a sort of Global Chat Room (a chat room made from the private chat) which only admins can make such a room.
This room will serve like a public chat room/shoutbox for ALL THE FORUM users.
How can we achieve this? Doing this will allow us to have all the amazing features the chat front is being worked on such as sending images etc.
@julian the screenshots are already, we have also created an issue on github.
we are not very good in development and not expert programmers like you guys, if we would we would have tried to debug
hope somebody helps us in making it compatible.
@Schamper told us to submit a PR but we tried but we r not able to fix the bugs
PongoPygmaeus created this issue in Schamper/nodebb-plugin-shoutbox
Broken on NodeBB v1.7.2
I'm using NodeBB as an interface for an app, more like a crowdsourcing hub. The forum is okay, but sometimes the communication is more dynamic and people have to either speak on the phone, use other apps or meet in person.
For new forums or for forums with small user base, a cross-forum chat room would be very engaging.
For the UI I'm imagining something like DC++ looked like in the old days.
This idea fits in different scenarios. At least in mine it does. The chat room would be an extension of the forum.
How do you find the idea?
