    I have been looking around for a decent chat addon for my forums that will give my staff the ability to moderate chat, and this seems to be what i'm looking for but it doesn't seem to be available for Xenforo. Maybe one of you can manage to turn this into a Xenforo add-on?

    Ajax chat

    Edit: I'll see what i can do during my spare time, maybe this will be my first XF add-on attempt (y)

    I just need something that people can use with their forum accounts. I don't need another IRC chat add-on because that just causes problems, and it gets spammed. =/

    Ask them at Ajax about XF integration.
    They have other forum integration so they SHOULD do XF.

    The people who created the whole forum integration feature told me to go ask someone that was a bit more familiar with XF, i'll attempt to do this myself... Challenge accepted. :cool:

    I wouldn't host that on my server, Ajax chat are licensed under the GNU Affero license, it basically force you to have the source available to your end users, for free. While I do like GPL, I prefer GPL v2, I think v3 and some variants are too restrictive, Affero being one of the worst offenders.

    I could always just make my own version but i can also provide all of this on github correct?

    Yeah, that would probably suffice. It's intention is to force everyone to share their copy if they make any changes, free of charge. If you have it on github, it wouldnt pose any real issues.

    Should be a fun project though. I never really did anything like this but i was told if i look at the how it was done on phpbb i shouldn't have a problem.

    What about using AddonChat or the chat room functions of CometChat? Both integrate well with Xenforo user profiles.

    I prefer a whole chat room that has the ability to be moderated.

    Edit: That looks kinda tacky too. :p

    Agreed, Ajax Chat is far better as a whole chat room solution then a facebook thing.

    Can we have a demo of this so that I can follow up on this one?

    Well it looks like I may not be able to start working on this for a while because sandy hit me pretty hard, and when I do it's going to be a "when I have spare time" project. :p
