Chat System

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever built into the VMS system a chat system. Like other web sights out there. For either Registered users or unregistered users. If anyone has any Idea how to do this I think it would be a pretty neat feature to add in.

Yes it is. I have two seperate sections for the VA. A information section, just like a regular web sight. And I have the phpvms under the AMS (Airline Management System) what I call it. I would like to add a chat log into the phpvms section for guys to get on and talk to each other. I perfer. it to log you into the chat via the log in into phpvms but if someone has to log into it then so be it.

Hey, any luck integrating that AjaxIM thing? Looks like the perfect solution I've been looking for, but my php skills are quite lacking >_<

That systems requires a VPS server.

A virtual private server? I hardly thing so. It requires a webserver with the correct libraries. I'm on a selfhosted linuxbox, it should have no problem with running AjaxIM, as far as I can see. I just don't know how to write the implementation code. :P

It looks pretty easy to setup just had a look myself.

Looks like you upload the files to your webserver configure a database and run the install, then check out the getting started guide ;)

Well.. Yeah. But I want it integrated with the phpVMS users, ie, pilots.. Thats the part I havent figured out.

An easy way to ensure that only registered pilots can use the chat system would be to wrap it in an auth::loggedin thingiemajig.

Example:

<?php if(Auth::LoggedIn()) {?>

<div>

code for the chatbox

</div>


<?php };?>

That way, only regged and logged in pilots could see the chat box.
