Moderator Permissions, Smilies, Password Protection

I'm just getting started with your chat plugin and am wondering where I might find documentation. To start,

1. I need to know how/where I choose my Moderator's privileges
2. I need to know how to password protect one of my rooms
3. All smilies are all bunched up on computer screen and phone screen. See attached screenshot

Thank you!

    Hi @Mary

    Hope you are doing good today :slight_smile:

    1. I need to know how/where I choose my Moderator's privileges

    Chat plugin uses default WordPress rules to manage moderators. You can select which roles are moderator from Admin > Chat > Settings Page > Authentication > Moderator Roles - Select which roles are moderators.

    2. I need to know how to password protect one of my rooms

    There is no option for password protection with chat plugin out of the box. However you can use default WordPress option of password protect pages.

    3. All smilies are all bunched up on computer screen and phone screen. See attached screenshot

    Its must be a plugin conflict. Please disable plugins at once except chat plugin and then check if it works. If it works then enable plugin one by one and check each time to find out the culprit. See our getting support manual for more details (flowchart).

    Take care and have a nice day :slight_smile:

    Thank you for your answers but I need more information please.

    1. I understand how to change WordPress user roles but they only allow permissions re editing and managing posts, etc. I need my Moderators to be able to ban chatters and read logs, but I don't want to give them full Admin access. How do I do that please?

    2, Thank you. I will look into the link you provided re password protecting the room. Perhaps this is something that could be a request for a future version?

    3. Re the smilies being bunched up, I deactivated all plugins and changed themes. They are still bunched up for me and for my users.

    Thank you

    Re password protecting a chat room, you suggested I go to https://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Password_Protection

    A better suggestion would have been to let me know that WMPU has a great plugin called Password Protect. It is simple and solved the problem easily.

    Re the smilies being bunched up, also, on several of them, if you click to select them the text that comes up instead of the text for the smilie is "undefined". If you then "send" undefined, it shows up on the chat window as undefined. Where are these little smilies hiding?

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
