An online chat integrated in Plone and CMF.

PloneChat allows multiple visitors of a website to chat with each other.

An optional moderation system is integrated, and may be appropriate in some situations. It allows moderators to block or edit incoming messages.

A list of members connected to the chat is available next to the chat frame. A new interface is available to define local roles for the chat. So the manager of the chat can choose, who will by able to participate in the chat. Moderation is based on Zope's roles, according to the following schema:
  • The 'Member' role gives a user the permission to chat. In moderation mode, messages of 'Members' may be moderated.
  • The 'Owner' role gives a user the ability to chat. Messages of 'Owners' are not moderated, even in moderation mode.
  • If moderation mode is active, the 'Reviewer' role gives a user the ability to moderate messages from users with the 'Member' role.
The chat main frame is an iframe that refreshes every X seconds. So works the connected members frame. All the content of the chat is kept, even if the users leaves the chat.
