Hi, I've posted this on here as the original thread leads towards php. The original theard starts here http://www.sitepointforums.com/showt...threadid=23313
What is sitepoint going to use for its new chat rooms??
The rest of the thread below - cheers in advance.
Cheers chicken - I like your chat. Am I right in thinking that the PHP/Mysql chat software give more flexibility over having board moderators etc?
Have you any ideas for a solution that would not hog server resources - as the reason Hostrocket give as to why they dont support java applets is that the hog the server.
My dilema is this - I've been approached by a group of related sites who want to have a chat room. If I can set a decent one up on my site, then I will get a good amount of traffic as all these sites will link to this one chat room which will have my branding and nav bar at the top. Obviously I don't want to turn this down due to the free taffic I could recieve.
What are your thoughts - cheers
PS - I'll also put this on the php board as the end part drags off topic.
