Chat Integration?

Once again, I have a question for all you people itching to help out. Is there going to be a way to integrate a chat (Flashchat, Addon Chat, IRC) to XenForo like we can with other forum software? As obvious as the answer probably is, I'm just wondering what the options are for chatroom programs and XF.

Any ideas?


I'm going to be integrating pjirc chat applet for my site so it pulls the username from xenforo by itself. If someone doesn't release one and there is a demand I'll release mine but it won't be too advanced, and changes (irc server or channel) would all be template based but it would at least get you where you need to be until something more advanced is released by someone.


I may see if I can integrate AjaxChat or Mibbit IRC into XF. If I'm feeling gracious, I may just develop my own chat software.

I will be developing an IRC addon for XenForo the moment I get a copy on hand. I will most likely use two or three different scripts (PJIRC[maybe], Mibbit, and lightIRC[specific to]) for the most out of the script.

If you have any specific needs with the modification, please PC me. :)


It's very easy to drop mibbit to xenforo, will offer the module at some point during october.

I already posted a link to XF on the Addonchat support site; used them for years. Hoping for an integration from them!

I moved from flashchat to addonchat. It took my members a few weeks to make sure java was downloaded...but everyone loves it now.

I'll be doing a mod for integrating qwebirc, since I'll at least need it heh, which more than likely could easily be adapted to mibbit (ugh).

Does chat take away from the forums?
In my experience, no. The few instances I have seen this happen is when the forums were added after the fact (e.g., a site primarily focused around live chat later adding discussion forums).
