Embedding IRC on the Forum

Post by Starlight Eclipse on Fri Feb 21, 2014 8:33 pm

I had an idea to make a Portal on the forum and then embed the IRC on there. It'd make it a lot easier for ponies to find/get on the IRC right from the forum, especially for those who aren't used to IRC. If needed I can give full directions on how to do so.

I don't think that is possible with the forum software we have right now.

I'm pretty sure you can use an iFrame or some sort of embed code to put the IRC via Mibbit on the forum. I'm going to test it myself right now.

Update: it'll work with this code for example, or you can make your own widget code:
Code:
<iframe width="550" height="350" scrolling="no" src="http://widget.mibbit.com/?settings=790fa3df4e41c8603cb628ba158d8b25&server=irc.rizon.net&channel=%23Pony_Hypno"></iframe>

It was working successfully on my ForuMotion forum. Also you can change the size of it however you wish. Will you use my suggestion if I give full directions?

Go to http://hypnoponies.niceboard.com/admin/index.forum?part=modules&sub=portal&extended_admin=1

Click to make a Portal, name it "IRC"

Click to manage it's Structure, and then make the middle column 100%, and the other two 0%

Create a custom Widget, put in this code (Not in WYSIWYG mode):
Code:
<iframe width="900" height="700" scrolling="no" src="http://widget.mibbit.com/?settings=790fa3df4e41c8603cb628ba158d8b25&server=irc.rizon.net&channel=%23Pony_Hypno"></iframe>

Click to save the Widget, then go back to the Portal Structure Page

Then click on the Custom Widgets tab and drag the IRC widget you made to the middle column, and then save everything.

Then you can test to make sure everything is working correctly by clicking on the IRC link in the forum menu.

Please let me know if anything wasn't too clear in my directions.
