Embedding PHPfreechat (not plugin) (2 posts)

    I'm trying to embed PHPfreechat into WP 3.2.1 + Buddypress.
    Essentially I want to have a page load the chat, and rather than inserting a nickname, it uses the users display name.

    I'd also need it to recognize administrators and forum_moderators (bbpress) to give them Admin status in the chat.

    Or, if by some miracle someone has a zip file of the original plugin for phpfreechat, it might be updatable (it's no longer available as far as I'm aware).

    The developer has stated for support with wordpress to ask here.

    If you get no more useful information, I would first try creating a WP template page with get_header(), get_footer() etc. Also add in the php portions of phpfreechat-x.x/index.php.

    Then create a page based on this template. This should get you a chat window surrounded by your theme. If this works OK, then you can start working on adding functionality like username, and admin and mod recognition. No idea how to do this, but since it's all php and the freechat object becomes part of WP via your template, it should all be doable. Good luck!
