Only two things : we can't set number of messages showing in the shoutbox in panel admin ... and we can't set a delay to empty the history ... The last problem is that i don't know how to connect my CB profiles on shoutbox's profiles ...
You can set the messages to show, in the admin, in "Messages to show".
You can also set the limit of message to save and how many messages show in the history.
And, you can connect the profiles with CB in "View profile" > "Community builder"
This options are in Joomla Admin > Kide > Preferences (top-right, next to the buttons Save, Cancel, ect)
With no very good reults.
In one word, this one is PERFECT. All the features you need, easy to customize with CSS, easy to hack with a clear and simple coding style, stable, no compatibility problems, despite my site is running Mootools, Jquery and a lot of custom JS scripts. And sooo fast !
Installed in two clicks, works out of the box.
Congratulations ans so much thanks to the author fot this wonderfull piece of art.
It has everything to be used as a chat.
Only downside I can see is that it's quite hard to get your way through its Spanish homepage if you don't understand a word of Spanish.
You can change the language of the site (http://www.jonijnm.es/web/change-language.html). Post a message in kunena is easy, other people have posted in english. But what about the com, did you vote it?
Thanks for the review :-)
Just one question I'm concerned about, will I not get SPAMMED because of not having captcha? 'Cause again I'm saying, I'm quite new to this. Thanks in advance. And thanks a lot to the developer. Thumbs up!!!
There is not spam by bots because there is not a submit botton. To send a message you need press the botton enter. But maybe I will add captcha, in the next version :)
This loaded and ran great immediately. Your help message about needing to load the component was very helpful, as well.
I am definitely going to "Donate."
One question...How do I get rid of the buttons above chat module box. I do not want to let people change/leave/power on/off/options/history, etc.?
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
The buttons are in the file:
- (module) mod_kide/tmpl/default_botones.php
- (component) com_kide/front/views/kide/tmpl/default_botones.php
One line is a button
The only thing that could be improved is the orange margin, a posibility to be changed in the backend to change the color can't be difficult to include. And the option to set the default writing color.Maybe I don't want users to change chat color, rather i will select the color for the chat.
Other than that.. absolutely great component
My only comment is that there is a typo in the "last message" line at the top of the shoutbox. When the Last message was 1 Hour or more ago, the line reads "Last Message: 1 dour and 15 minutes. It should read 1 hour (not dour)
Thanks again for this great Shoutbox - keep up the good work!
Thank a lot.
The status of the sound is saved in a cookie (kide_config), so Kide remembers it :)
Only one thing I would like extra. The option to have an audio alert each time someone added a shout.
If it had this it would be excelent, according to my taste.
Added in the v0.5.1 :-)
Can you send me an e-mail or use my forum to ask you some questions? Thanks
