Questions about New Chat plugin

Can you set the chat plugin to display on every page in one positioned place for all users?

Can you set it so that members only see their friends in the chat area and can have private chats with each friend?

Thanks, these are just some questions I have.

    Can you set the chat plugin to display on every page in one positioned place for all users?

    Yes, Go to Chat > Settings Site. Then on the 'Box Appearance' tab. Enable the Bottom corner chat option. This is a group chat that will display be default on all pages in the bottom corner. You can control the position of the box via the 'Box Position' tab.

    Can you set it so that members only see their friends in the chat area and can have private chats with each friend?

    Not 100% sure I understand your question.

    The chat plugin does support private chats. There are two way. The moderator of a group chat can initiate chat with other users participating in the chat session. The moderator will see a little lock image on the user message row. Clicking this will open a new chat window for both the moderator and the user.

    Second way is by Installing our Friends plugins ( https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/friends/ ). Via Friends you create connections with users like you would on other social network. This prevents all users from starting chats with other user unknown to them. Via the Friends listing there is a column there the WP user can initiate a private chat with another WP user.

    Also if you have the Friends plugin installed and are using the WP Toolbar at the top of the page you can enable display of the chat menu. Via the chat menu you can control your chat status (available, away, offline). You will also see a listing of your friends who are online and be able to initiate a private chat.

    The Chat for BuddyPress works the same as above. Within BuddyPress there is the same concept of Friends. Via your profile you will see a listing of your friends. And via this listing you are able to initiate private chats.

    Hope this help. Let us know if you have other question.
