Brogan submitted a new resource:

WhatsXFessenger - Sup?

Tired of conversations looking exactly the same as threads?
Didn't think so.

Members getting confused between threads, conversations, and profile posts and keep posting embarrassingly private stuff in threads?
No, mine neither.

Ever felt that XF conversations would be waaaaaaayyyy better if they resembled one of the well known messenger apps?
Nah, thought not.

With that in mind, ladies and gentlemen, meine damen und herren, mesdames et messieurs, hanimlar ve beyler ... I hereby present to you ...

Naturally it won't be possible to provide support for custom layouts, styles, problems, etc., due to conversations only being accessible by participants.

It's impossible to diagnose from a screenshot.

So you will have to use the browser inspector to resolve any issues.

I'm off for a lie down.

Hi Brogan, what do you mean by this?
<xf:set var="$ctaMessagePointer" value="top" /> // pointer location for the message containers - top, bottom, or none

It removes the radius from one of the corners to simulate a speech bubble.

I love this, looks fantastic, but it seems that aligning the messages for self and others doesn't seem to be working for me, tried right and left aligning, nothing...

Great. I would suggest just another name for this add-on. I would call it Messenger or XenMessenger.
Fessenger gives me a lot of the idea of Fesso. Which in Italian means idiot, hahaha.

It's just a joke - it's not an add-on so the name is largely irrelevant.

Hi!
Is it possible to hide another avatar?
With avatar many free spaces... :

Without avatar no free spaces.

Thanks a lot!

If you hide the avatars of others, you won't know who the message is from in conversations with more than two participants.

As above, use the browser inspector to determine why the blank space is showing.

Actually, let me check something when I get back to my office.

I have an idea what may be causing that.

Same issue, haven't yet looked into whether it's related to some add-on.

@tonmo As above, if you can provide an admin log in I can take a look.

My guess is it's related to the template edit.

Kinda sorta works well on UIX themes. Thanks @Brogan

Am I missing the option to stuff the avatar at the top? Thought I saw a screenie with that layout.

The avatar automatically moves to above the message content in narrow widths.

That's core XF functionality.
