Add-ons questions

    Is it there a native function to add chat or shout boxes within the thread pages or is there an add-on for this? If you can't add them within the forum pages, is it possible to create multiple chats on other "pages".

    There is a third party chat add-on.
    It only supports a single chat instance, although it can be displayed on multiple pages.

    So I understand, if it's on multiple pages, it would show the same chat experience on all of them?

    There's no chat built into XenForo but there's the Taigachat add-on. Alternatively there are external applications that will work with XenForo - ArrowChat and CometChat, which also provide personal chats as well as chatrooms.

    Yes.

    Like mentioned above do the other add-ons not give me the ability to create different chats on different pages?

    I don't know about CometChat. As for ArrowChat, this allows you to create multiple chatrooms and these can be either accessed via the chatbar at the bottom of the website (which is available on all pages) or you can embed these chatrooms into XenForo pages. Currently you can't access multiple chatrooms from the chatbar (you can only be in one room at a time). I don't know about multiple chat rooms in pages, I've not tested this but in theory you could - you'd have to check with ArrowChat on that. However, their next update (not sure when it's out) will include the ability to be in multiple chatrooms.

    Ok, thank you for the quick response.

    Although currently true, multi-room support is sort of "here"

    Take a look at the updates section for more information: https://xenforo.com/community/resources/taigachat-pro-realtime-chat-shoutbox.1224/updates

    Ahh, I wasn't aware it had been updated to support that.
