Adding chat messages to a database

It would be really nice to have a way to save chat messages to a database. This would allow us to continue previous conversations, as well as view chat history out of interest. I also think it's important that there would be a manual 'save' button, instead of a continual default saving. Or maybe it could be optional, whether the user saves manually or automatically? Thoughts are welcome about this feature.

Good idea! This is something we will probably address in the future, although the site's layout is going to be the next feature. The team is hard at work and doesn't really have time to develop this as well as a new layout. Thanks for the reminder though!


You could use ajax instead of socketio, but I don't recommend it. It can cause a lot of traffic on your website if enough users are on.


If you keep watching Yoder Blog, I have announced that I will implement it because it is sort of like what I have now. It reloads 1000 times an hour. Instead of once every 10 seconds. And doesn't need to have a pop-up message box!
