Hi, time for another blog on the chat module. As we're getting somewhere near a first public release we decided it's about time to show some of the money. So here are a few screenshots. Hope you like'm.
This is what the module looks like for a user who's not allowed to chat. He'll be able to read everything other are chatting but can't chat for himself.
Here, the user is allowed to chat. The colorpicker popup is also used for emoticons and font size. And you can see how the markup will be made.
We extended the standard permissiongrid in module settings so administrators will find the permissions to be set where they'll be looking for them.
Thanks a bunch to Vicenc Masanas and Stefan Cullmann (or at least the one that did this in the UDT module) for their blog and examples.
The final screenshot (below) shows the settings currently implemented for this module. There will be some work done here eventually, but t might give an idea of what's in there now.
So, I hope this gives an idea of where we're at and what is about to come up. Let's here what you think.
