Can someone please let me know if private chat

Can someone please let me know if private chat is achievable with the current Chat Plugin or if it is simply a group chat plugin?

    Hi there @Joseph

    Welcome to WPMU DEV, glad to have you aboard!

    Yes indeed, users can initiate private chats with other members they have "friended" using either the Friend feature in BuddyPress or (if you aren't using BuddyPress) with our Friends plugin:

    You'll find more info about that in the User-Configurable Settings section under the Chat plugin's usage tab:

    I hope this helps! And thanks for being a member :slight_smile:

    Hi @Anton

    Hope you are doing good today :slight_smile:

    Yes! It can be customized to use it with any plugin that uses WordPress users for member management. But it requires a good deal of customization, that is beyond the level of support we can provide here. Sorry! However you can hire a third party developer from job development board for customization. They are not employee but they have more understanding of our plugins and their framework.

    One on one chat is a good option and would be a good feature request though. I am moving this thread in features and feedback forum to see if how many of our members are interested and to get our developers notify about this suggestion. We will try our best to add in future version of this plugin. But I am afraid I can not guarantee or give an ETA here.

    Take care and have a nice day :slight_smile:

    Cheers, Sajid

    Thanks for the reply @Sajid -

    I really think it's a great plugin, but is extremely limited due to its dependency on BuddyPress and your Friends plugin (that is backend-only, which most modern websites are steering away from).
    I really hope more members want broader support too, and that it gets implemented!

    I'd love to have an unlimited budget and get custom code for all my needs, but I only have a very limited budget that's already going into WPMUDEV membership. :wink:
