MetamodPro on JChatSocial v2.5

MetamodPro on JChatSocial v2.5

Testing DJ-Classifieds 3.3.2 with JChatSocial 2.5 on Joomla 3.3 in localhost encounters the following issue:

The private chat box lists out all users that are currently logged in. How to set Metamodpro such that:
    (i) all pages except the advert detail page are excluded (JChatSocial can be configured to be excluded at the Category level but in doing so it also become excluded from the advert detail page of that category.)
   (ii) Only the adverts owner's user name will be shown in case he is logged in, otherwise the chat box should contain no user names.

Re: MetamodPro on JChatSocial v2.5


Is the chat feature actually a module? If so, my product MetaMod would be the best way to handle this as it deals directly with modules.

I think that MetaMod could easily handle (1) but probably not (2) as that’s an implementation detail of the JChatSocial module itself. You might need to get someone to make a variation of the module installed under a different name that only allows 1 user name to show up.

Anyway, in order to handle (1) you can try to turn on MetaMod's "advanced debug" mode and see if that spits out any PHP that can identify which pages are categories, and which are advert detail pages. Chances are this will give you the right code to use – or, paste the results into the forum here and I can advise. I would recommend that you try a variety of pages and post the results for each type so it's easy to see the differences between them.
