IRC-like chat with a Facebook-like interface

Msg#: 4597280 posted 3:12 am on Jul 29, 2013 (gmt 0)

I have been looking for a couple of days now with no luck, here is what I am wanting in the chat system:
  • Anyone can enter a nickname a start chatting without registration (I don't even want there to be registration)
  • Preferably cookie or session based, so you can navigate to a different area without having to reenter the nickname
  • I want it to sit at the bottom like a toolbar or at the bottom right like on Facebook while it is not being "used" and pop up a small box just above the bar on the bottom right when the open chat is clicked or someone "calls" your nickname
  • I want to be able to log in as admin so I can kick and/or ban someone (by IP)
  • I want a way for the user to hide the toolbar/box if it is unwanted
  • If it requires a database, it must support MySQL

I have looked on SourceForge, HotScripts, and Google with absolutely no luck. All suggestions are appreciated.

Fantastico and Softaculous both have a list of apps to install via cPanel.

One could think of their lists as informal endorsements. HTH.

I don't have nor do I use cPanel. I have SSH, SFTP, and Notepad++.

I think you miss understood my post. With their apps list a cPanel on the server is NOT required. They offer the scripts as a value plus bundle.

I have installed some of those scripts on their lists on other servers. All that was required for all was PHP with a few not requiring a MySQL database.

ah, ok. I'll check it out later today.

Fantastico seems to be a paid thing and it looks like Softaculous has to be integrated with a panel of some sort. I am getting very frustrated with Softaculous...
