Installation of Quick Chat

Installation is quick and easy like Quick Chat itself:

  1. Upload ’quick-chat’ folder to the ’/wp-content/plugins/’ directory.
  2. Activate ’Quick Chat’ plugin through the ’Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Add Quick Chat widget through ’Appearance’ -> ’Widgets’ and/or add [quick-chat height="your_chat_height_pixels"] shortcode inside the post or page where you want Quick Chat to appear. Also you can control chat room by editing ’Appearance’ -> ’Widgets’ page for sidebar chat, and by using [quick-chat room="your_room_name"] shortcode for in-post chat (check FAQ page for more info).
  4. Go to ’Settings’ -> ’Quick Chat’ to tweak security settings like forbidden words list, forbidden domains to post links and other options.
  5. Have fun showing people new chat on your web site/blog.

F.A.Q

After upgrading Quick Chat 1.xx to 2.xx what will happen with my old chat messages and settings?

Quick Chat 2.xx has new features like list of online users that couldn’t be successfully implemented on top of Quick Chat 1.xx. Because of that it isn’t possible to preserve old messages and settings when upgrading Quick Chat 1.xx to Quick Chat 2.xx. If you need your old messages you should backup your data from “wp_quick_chat” table inside your WordPress database using Phpmyadmin before upgrading to Quick Chat 2.xx.

How to embed Quick Chat into post or page?

You can do that by posting [quick-chat] inside post or page where you want your chat to appear. See for more info.

How can I control Quick Chat sidebar widget height?

You do this by editing your Quick Chat widget settings on ’Appearance’ -> ’Widgets’ page. Default sidebar widget height is 310px.

I want to change user list position when Quick Chat is embeded into post or page?

To use embedded chat with user list on the left you can embedd it into your post or page using following shortcode: [quick-chat userlist_position="left"]. You can also use “top” and “right” values for userlist_position shortcode attribute.

I want to change user list position when using Quick Chat sidebar widget?

You do this by changing your Quick Chat widget settings on ’Appearance’ -> ’Widgets’ page inside WordPress admin dashboard. There you can adjust “User list position” option.

How can I control Quick Chat height when it is embeded into post or page?

You control Quick Chat height by giving height attribute to the [quick-chat] shortcode. So to have 600px high Quick Chat window embeded on your page you would add [quick-chat height="600"] inside page where you want your chat to appear. If you omit height attribute default height is 300px.

How can I control what chat room is shown on my Quick Chat sidebar widget?

You do this by changing your Quick Chat widget settings on ’Appearance’ -> ’Widgets’ page inside WordPress admin dashboard. So if you want your sidebar widget chat to show chat room identified by word “musictalk”, you will put “musictalk” word inside “Chat room” text box in your Quick Chat widget settings on your WordPress Appearance -> Widgets page. Every chat (sidebar or in-post) with “musictalk” room attribute will show this same content. Default behavior for sidebar widget is to show predefined chat room identified by the “default “word”.

How can I control what chat room is shown when Quick Chat is embeded into post or page?

In this case you control chat room by giving room attribute to the [quick-chat] shortcode. So if you want your embedded chat to show chat room identified by word “musictalk” you will display this chat like this: [quick-chat room="musictalk"]. Every chat (sidebar or in-post) with “musictalk” room attribute will show this same content. If you omit room shortcode attribute, default behavior is to show predefined chat room identified by the “default” word.

My theme has no widget support. How can I embed Quick Chat into my web site using PHP?

To embed Quick Chat on your page you can place <?php echo quick_chat_display_chat(500,'default',1,'left'); ?> inside your theme PHP files. You can replace “500″ with wanted Quick Chat message history window height and ‘default’ with your chat room name. The third parameter should be 1 when you want to display user list (0 otherwise) and the last parameter will decide where will user list be placed (‘right’, ‘left’ or ‘top’).

I’m using WordPress Javascript optimizing plugin like WP Minify and Quick Chat does not work on my site?

Quick Chat isn’t compatible with any of the Javascript mangle/compact WordPress plugins. These plugins do their best to compact Javascript code but sometimes shortcuts they take while doing their work leave Quick Chat without correct Javascript code. If you have problems with Quick Chat you might have to disable those plugins.

What are the requirements for Quick Chat audio notification features?

Quick Chat can use sound to notify you of incoming messages and to inform you that your message has been sent. For this feature to work you need modern HTML5 audio tag enabled browser like Mozilla Firefox 3.5+, Google Chrome 6+, Opera 10.5+ or Internet Explorer 9 (works but not recommended).

Can I change messages notification sound?

Sure you can. You just replace “message-sound.mp3″, “message-sound.ogg” and “message-sound.wav” from your “wp-content/plugins/quick-chat/sounds” directory with your own message notification sound files. Three files are necessary because not all HTML5 audio tag enabled browsers support all audio file formats.

I want sidebar chat to show unique chat room for every post or page I have?

When word “unique” is used for chat room name for any sidebar chat widget, this widget shows unique chat on every post/page except on home page where it shows the “default” chat room.

I want to customize CSS styles used to differentiate between admin users, loggedin users and guest users messages?

You can do that by modifing quick-chat.css file inside your “wp-content/plugins/quick-chat/css” directory. For example to modify admin users message appearance you will modify “div.quick-chat-admin div.quick-chat-history-alias”, “div.quick-chat-admin div.quick-chat-history-timestring” and “div.quick-chat-admin div.quick-chat-history-message” code blocks. You can modify loggedin and guest users messages appearance by editing matching code blocks inside quick-chat.css
