Anyone able to adapt cometchat (standalone) to xF?
give it time.. I'm sure soon cometchat will soon have a version for XF.
No offense to Anat and the team there, but they takes his time. I could expect a xF version in about... oh... 3 months or so...
SMF was promised over a month ago. I learned long ago not to hold my breath. To be honest, I don't care because his product is gold and works really well...
I will try to adapt them! when i finish i tell you !
I thought cometchat pulled it directly from the sql?
Nope .. that's why I said it's easy ... I have not played with xF templates and I have no idea where the footer template is
The only problem I'm having is setting the userid into either session variable or a cookie on login with XF, looking through the code to find a good spot to do it. The script launched and added itself onto the page just fine though.
If anyone has some insite on where we can get and set the userid on login that'd help a lot.
I just looked at the config and integration on my comet chat and it does get it from the SQL...that part of the integration is easy though.
We use Cometchat on other sites and it's pretty good.
Solved the user id issue, working on the friends list/listing who's on to chat. As soon as I get that settled I'll post how I did it for all to see
Nice work bambua! Keep us updated on your progress!
I have cometchat also but have taken it down from my vb4 site. Vb4 loads slow enough as it is and with cometchat it made it a little worse. With the speed xf has I think cometchat would compliment it well and not slow down much at all.
Just to clarify guys, CC makes sql queries to get user id, etc. The only template editing needed is above the body tag, where you insert two lines of code to call the CC script.
