    Is it possible to display quick-chat in the backend dashboard as a widget, to chat privately to anybody connected to the backend right now?

    I'd be willing to lend a hand with the implementation ...

    Anyway thanks for this nice plugin!

    Hello my friend sorry for the delay I'm really ill these days. I like your idea very much and I guess many QC users will find it useful so it will most definitely be included in next Quick Chat version. Thank you very much for offering help, often I could really need assistance but for this feature code is rather straightforward, just paste following at the end of your QC 2.41 quick-chat.php:

    function quick_chat_dashboard_widget_function() {
        echo quick_chat(300,'admin_room',1,'left',1,32,0,1,1);
    function quick_chat_dashboard_widgets() {
        wp_add_dashboard_widget('quick_chat_dashboard_widget', 'Quick Chat', 'quick_chat_dashboard_widget_function');
    add_action('wp_dashboard_setup', 'quick_chat_dashboard_widgets' );
    add_action('admin_print_footer_scripts', 'quick_chat_localize');
    add_action('admin_enqueue_scripts', 'quick_chat_js');
    add_action('admin_print_styles', 'quick_chat_load_stylesheet');

    You can visit Quick Chat FAQ "My theme has no widget support. How can I embed Quick Chat into my web site using PHP?" question and answer to find out more about quick-chat() function so you could tweak room name, height and all other options. Also if you have any other suggestions or code just contact me ;)

    Thanks for your suggestion and my best regards,
