Which polling method are you using?

Hi, thank you for the reply. I am using the default Ajax method.

I do plan to introduce the chat archiving feature. But unfortunately, at the moment, I am tied up with the development going on the demo site. Thanks.

I am just wondering on the technical side. My experience is primarily based on C++/C#, but currently when you access /messages you are able to see the archived chat. What is the table name where the chat messages get stored?. I would imagine it should not be too difficult to alter the script to enable save messages from all users from a public chat within the database and then retrieve it. I will do some research and try to implement it myself, but was hoping for a headups up by telling me a psudo code of the process involved.

+1000, chat logging for the public chatroom would be huge. I am using the drupal 7 version (AJAX polling), but yeah.

Users should be able to login, open the public chatroom, and see what people have been talking about.

Anyone have the skills to implement this?
