Enable Chat/IM


Enable the Site Chat / IM


In phpfox we provide a default chat feature where a user can communicate with others in the site.
To enable it just go to the

AdminCP >> Settings >> System Settings >> Manage Settings >> IM

Look for "Enable IM (Footer Bar)".

EDIT: The next step is NOT needed in phpFox v3:
The IM resides on the footer bar so you also need to have the footer bar enabled, to do this you go to
AdminCP >> Settings >> System Settings >> Manage Settings >> Core

Look for "Enable Footer Bar".

Please keep in mind the IM is very resource hungry and not suitable for most shared hosting packages. It depends on how big your site is and the available hardware in your server though.
