Chatbox

By bcammobcammo

Description

This include allows you to install a simple chatbox on your site for quick, character-limited communications.

Attributes

The snippet uses the following attributes, both of which are optional.

Attribute Allowed values Default value Description
category any category chatbox The category in which you would like messages to be saved.
limit any integer 15 The number of recent messages to show.

Code

You can add the chatbox to your site with the following code:

[[include :snippets:chatbox attributes...]]

For example, the following code will install the chatbox to save messages in the chat category and will show the 20 latest messages.
[[include :snippets:chatbox |category=chat |limit=20]]

Messages will be saved in the category you specify (chatbox by default). It's a good idea to set this category to auto-numbered to avoid any conflicts.

For advanced users, you can customise the appearance of the chatbox with a CSS module or in your site's theme - available classes are chatbox (the container), message (the message content) and new-page-box (the input field).

In action

See the chatbox below for a working example. Feel free to leave a message…
