Hi Chris

Some add ons (or combined addon) I think would make OCPortal absolutely brilliant are

the chat option as a bar at the bottom bar like facebook.....(a chat bar)

A bit also on a bar at the bottom which shows if there are any new personal messages from members or support messages from admin (or from members for admin)

also on the bar an activities pop up tab

I'm competing with a website that already has this function

When I get a minute free from my hectic schedule.....I might even see if I can create an add on! :dry:

Hi Dix,

We're talking probably a couple of weeks of expert work for this, as it requires a lot of skilled design and engineering for this kind of feature.

There are some third party systems out there that can be set up to do it I think though, but I've not used them myself.


Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Although I have never used this on any ocPortal site as I am just starting out with ocp and don`t have a live site, but I am using the basic version of this on another site and it works very well.

Not sure if it could be integrated with new personal topics/messages but anythings possible if you know how

Hi Kenno....thanks for that information....that's exactly what I'm looking for!

Thanks for your reply chris

I've just checked it out and it shows pretty much every other program that it integrates with except oc portal!!

Rather than doing the coding yourself....I'll see (or do you need to speak with them for them to include oc portal) if it will integrate with oc portal and that will make oc portal as competitive in that department as the other programs.

I think for them to integrate it into ocPortal for you, then you have to purchase there premium version.

It is quite a nice script and does work well, you can remove all the other chat rooms from the bar at the bottom and just have the chat box like facebook in the bottom right hand side.

In there latest version I think they have it integrated with facebook so it adds all the users facebook friends in the chatbox (if logged in through facebook) so they don`t have to flick back and forth between the two sites.
