Do not hesitate and start creating a video chat room to share with friends or any person you are interested.
This is an update to original Chat Room we published here on CSS-Tricks. We are going to employ PHP to talk to the server, j Query to keep the chat rolling, and the chats themselves will be stored in files just like the first version.
Registration is fast, simple and absolutely free so please, join our community today!
Our most popular chatroom is "Sex Chat", no membership or registration is needed to chat, there isn't even an option to pay on the site!
If it is in use, you get a warning: Otherwise, it says it's cool: If it is cool, and you click to join the chats, that username will be put into the database and thus further checks for it's name will tell others that name is unavailable. The names of the chatrooms are kept in the database.
To add a new chatroom, just add a new row to the database with the name of the chatroom and the filename of the text file you intend to store the chat: Then it's just a matter of making sure the text file is on the server in the right place with proper server-writeable file permissions (see the download for properly location).
Message box: When a user types into the textarea for sending a message, the j Query watches that box and ensures the text is under a certain number of characters (set via maxlength attribute on the textarea) Sending message: When the return/enter key is pressed in the chat box the value of it is sent for processing. Updating the chat: Every few seconds, j Query asks a PHP file to poll the text file to see if there are any new lines, if there are, they are displayed. A reader was able to show me how they could publicly access my Word Press file, which is of course super sensitive.
In addition, the sample shows how to get a chat room from the contact list.
The Filter Message Add In sample application shows how to get a hosting group for a Persistent Chat room, catch outgoing messages before they are posted to the hosting chat room, run filtering and formatting logic on the messages, and then send the resulting message to the hosting chat room.
