I want to add a chat room to my site, the only problem I have is that I host with hostrocket who don't allow java applets.
I would like chat room to have my own design and it should really allow a number of moderators to run it.
Can someone give me some advise on what my best options are - I'd particularly like to here from any hostrocket sites that have sorted out a decent chat room.
Cheers in advance.
Whatever solution you may eventually go with one thing is certain - it wont be based on Client Side Scripting. ;) Although it could play a part.
I guess your next best option is to use a server side technology such as PHP. This will of course involve making repeated checks to the server every, say, 5 seconds to see if a new post has been made, but if Java isn't an option then that can't be helped.
Before I go any further what do you have available to you?
Hi - thanks for the reply.
