Forum + Chat in Same Window

Postby yuttadhammo » Sun Dec 19, 2010 11:16 am

Not sure if this qualifies as a suggestion, but I was just thinking the Chat Room is a bit useless when you have to choose between the forum and the Chat. So, I came up with a way to have them both in the same window. You can test it here:



You can adjust the size ratio by dragging the bar in the middle. Closing down the User List in the chat makes it quite useable. I think this sort of layout would get more people using the chat, since it could be open while you type a post, as it is here:

Nice!

On my forum we have the chatbox at the top the forum below, so it gets in the way. This side-by-side is quite effective and allows for ample opportunity for both. I like.
