    Hi Dave (@dfa3272008),

    I keep posting here as we cannot register on getpaidfrom.us.

    Please have a look at the cloned issue "Little problem with Your amazing plugin of Ajax chat"

    Logged as a user, I go on another buddypress member page, I see a "Chat" link. I click and expect to enter a private chat with this member. If the member if offline, I expect to be alone in this private chat, waiting for him :)

    Now the problem is when you click on that link, you are redirected to the home page.

    Could you please have a look at it ?

    Man, this one is a b-tch!

    I spent hours on it and there's no nice (aka easy) way to make it happen without making a messaging system of some sort.

    Now if this messaging system was in place then I could possibly use it to notify people of missed chat requests and stuff like that. Something I've always wanted.

    I've been thinking on and off for more than a year now as to how I should do this, but it's a big endeavor and I've been focused on other projects. So it's on hold for now. Sorry:(

    No worries Dave, at least we know it's on hold.

    Maybe if you describe the "redirection problem", someone someday will find a solution for that.

    Without the messaging system (no missing chat requests), is there a way for two online members to get into a private chat ?

    To enter private chat both you and the user need to be logged on. Then you click on the user's name in Full blow chat and go to private channel. Where just you two will chat away. The method to get there is via clicking a link when within the full blown chat window. Currently there is no method to take you from one html page to the full blow page AND get you to that link. Plus if the person is not logged in you nor them get the notification.

    I really want to be notified if someone tried to talk to me and I missed them. That is a feature I want.
