Chat in main page



  • Anyone knows if is possible to hide the categories in main page and have a chat like discord (in main page) where you can message with others, create rooms, view online users etc. I would like to have something like that but also create topics in the same interface. so that chat can show when a user create a new topic ;). At least know if its possible to do into the hooks . Thanks in advance ๐Ÿ™‚



  • You can use this plugin for a chat. And this for making homepage without categories.



  • @MJ I also think that the global nodebb chat should be improved
    that you see on the main page
    that you can create rooms in that global chat, for example "general" room "love" room

    the shoutbox plugins is very basic and is very outdated
    they abandoned that project

    a nodebb is missing a good global chat
    in the forum part it is very good but in the chat part it needs more work

    I agree some features would be awesome like:

    -- Creating rooms (like you said)
    -- Back-up chatmessages as forum posts
    -- Chatting for guests
    -- Make it possible to do theme/style changes in ACP.
    -- Make a special group/role chat moderator (without being a forum moderator)



  • this is an example of chat
    take it out of a phpbb forum
    something like that would be good for nodebb

    you can see that there is a black moderator between the users
    you can see the file of everything that was spoken in the chat in the last 2 days
    there is a moderator room and another relaxation room

    That chat is on the same page as the forum, above all

    Can you get something similar?

  • @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 ๐Ÿ˜›

    A nice clean version of this chat would be awesome.

    No, I can't build plugins sadly ๐Ÿ˜ž



  • 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
