NOTE: Anything striked through I have managed to implement already.
I would also like to create a web chat accesible from the members page. I suppose I would prefer something that rely's more on the client rather than throttle the server. The only tutorials I have managed to find involve PHP/mySQL only and relying on mySQL or text files on the server for that matter with possible constant messaging seems a bit iffy to me.
Oh yes and possibly a rather larger one. I really don't know what keywords to use to search for this, but when adding a post or modifying a post on my forum I do allow some HTML tags, but I would prefer to have some sort of small bb code implementation (with buttons etc) or atleast some options accesible via a mouse that sticks the html in automatically.
An explanation or link to somewhere that can help me with any of these is greatly appreciated. I have been mostly fixing up my site for XHTML 1.0 Transitional compliance and syntax etc.
Oh and the latest update (my latest updates are still being built and tested locally) you can see on my website, here: http://www.chessoscorner.com, it may give a better idea of what I mean for the Shoutbox/Forum.
Any help is greatly appreciated .
