Not really a problem so no fix!

Hello!

I'm trying to configure a fresh phpBB3.3.4 board to migrate from vBulletin4 and I have a question about mChat:

Would it be possible to choose a color when chatting (i.e. green or whatever) and make the board remember that choice in a database to allow chatter to keep his own color.

That would improve the readability of the chatbox in my opinion, as we currently use this feature with VSA_chatbox on vB4.

I can imagine this could be difficult to code so the "support request" is more a question than a problem to fix.

So, thank you in advance for your answers! :tumbsyes:

Ajax Chat has that feature for a user to select a color and holds that color for the user.

I don't think mChat ever implemented that feature. But anything is possible.

Hello and thank you for your answers!

Well I'm confused, I thought I read everything I could about mChat and colours and I even read that topic... and I think I was tired because I didn't understand it concerned computer users... :oops: :oops: :oops:

So the trick with Ctrl + left click on colour works fine! :thumbup:

I tried AjaxChat, but I experienced problems with some users (same group so same permissions but no way to post a message for some of them :wtf: ) so we are back with mChat :)

Thank you again!

That is crazy, my mchat has the hold color choice in the color selections and I never knew it.

I didn't get the memo.
