Is there any plugging similar to the telegram notification bot but with the google chat webhook? If not it shouldn't be difficult to make (probably).
Chat in main page

@arranka The style won't fit into NodeBB. NodeBB is clean and minimalistic and the chat from phpbb is a little to much and to 2005. It fits with the phpbb style but not with NodeBB
A nice clean version of this chat would be awesome.
No, I can't build plugins sadly

I do not intend for nodebb chat to look like phpbb chat
because if it were that way it would not be in nodebb, it would be in phpbb
What I would like is for the chat to improve pointing to the nodebb style and be user friendly.
Good ideas have said here, thank you
Or just add moderation tools on global tchat plugins will be perfect like:
- delete/edit message off all users
- clear history
- exclude users/ban temporarly or not a user of the chat room
Just that will be perfect
No response here.
However, moderation tools on a feature such as this are essential for a forum.
Any news about to add moderation tools on global chat plugin ?

@DownPW There is no news and there will be no news. The development and support of such a chat will require more resources than the support of the forum. It is much easier to integrate a ready-made free chat platform into a forum
maybe but it's less clean and I don't like to multiply resources too much
And I don't see what soft to include
Given the little need for addition, I think it would be quite possible.
We're just talking about being able to edit or ban users from the Chat. pretty basic things after all.
@DownPW The thing is, you're looking to add full chat support to NodeBB, which is a forum software. That's not to say that it's impossible, but rather that it's a commit of resources in a direction that we don't agree with, because every additional feature we add means we have to support it going forward.
... and then there's the whole idea of "doing one thing and doing it well". You can argue that NodeBB does a lot of things, but it does one thing really well, and that's being a forum. Everything else is gravy, but also doesn't mean that it'd be good enough to compete with other dedicated products.
For example, would we want to commit resources (however limited they be) to building out a better chat frontend, when Discord would kick our ass ten times out of ten?
Just something to think about. Remember, I'm not trying to say that Discord is better than NodeBB or vice versa, but merely that we're comparing apples and oranges here, and sometimes you want an apple, sometimes you want an orange, but few people want an apple-orange hybrid that's not quite as good as either
I think the analogy is on the verge of falling apart there, so I'll stop now hah.
I completely understand what you are saying.
But for me, integrating a Discord plugin to NodeBB with authentication to Discord etc... is clearly not something viable.
Everything I've seen so far is really impractical and crosses platforms. What is not user friendly
I was talking about improving the global chat and not making it a Discord or something like that. This goes back to your analogy.
The concern I see is that many people on the forums like chat and integrating it natively or through plugins is already done.
Just add basic moderation functions and it would be perfect.
But I don't want to be a pain in the ass so I'm going to stop there too
