Member Applets

[Home | Administrator Guide]

Note: These examples work only with a VOLANO Chat Pro Server.

This page demonstrates the various forms of the VolanoChat member access applet, showing how a member can also enter the chat server as a monitor or administrator. For all of the member services to work, you must implement three CGI scripts and give their addresses to the VOLANO Chat Pro Server by defining the server properties member.access and member.name as well as the applet property member.document.

VolanoChat member

This is the member version of the VolanoChat applet. You can avoid the member name and password prompt for members already signed into your Web site by dynamically adding the appropriate username and password parameters to the applet tag. To avoid placing a password in the Web page source, you can instead use a temporary expiring token or session identifier for the password.

The applet tag for this applet is the same as the normal VolanoChat applet except for the following additional parameter:

<param name="member" value="true" />

VolanoChat member and monitor

This is the member and monitor version of the VolanoChat applet. You must first set the server.password server property before you can access the server as a monitor. Monitors can remove, kick, and ban people in any of the chat rooms.

VolanoChat member and administrator

This is the member and administrator version of the VolanoChat applet. You must first set the admin.password server property before you can access the server as an administrator. Administrators can remove, kick, and ban people in any of the chat rooms. In addition, administrators can send broadcast messages into all of the public and personal chat rooms.
