afaik this feature was removed again... it never worked that well and was available in early betas.
however i think there's somewhere a mod already.

I modified a version of the Y1 mod in the early beta's that remained as a working preliminary version in the package until the release.
As this was based on a mod for which I did not have permission to use it I discussed with the original author to have him rewrite it for Y2.
So it's a matter of waiting for it or rewriting the code based on Y2 from zero

The chat mod I know is almost stand alone, but I think it will not install using boardmod as the Y2.1 code has changed a lot since this mod came out.

Ron is right the chat mod is pretty much stand alone, the only mods to the Yabb code are for it to show up on your forum boardindex and default templates.

It depends on what mods you already have installed whether or not you have to manually do the mod or edit the mod file so it works with the version of Yabb you have installed and with Boardmod.

Usually it is just a formatting difference in the code that you have to look at.

There are plenty of folks here willing to help if you need it.

The problem with the majority of Y1.x mods is that they are looking for stuff in the template subroutine in Subs.pl to add menu links in it.
However, Subs.pl from Y2.x is so different that boardmod installation will fail for sure.
Having said this, mods that only add stuff to the menu could be installed manually as the $yymenu string still is there, so with a little eyeballing the average intelligent person could figure it out Wink

No, not at all, I'm general manager for a production facility for high pressure valves in Holland Wink
But security stuff always had above average attention in my programming hobby.

One of my teacher gave me a vailuable lesson once.
He said:"It takes only one line of code to add up two numbers, but it takes at least 10-fold of that to prevent morons to use this one line to add cows to chickens Wink
Which in essence boils down to the fact that most functionality is very compact in code, but all the stuff you have to write around it to ensure that the code is only used to do what it was ment to do takes up about 90% more time, space and effort.

Let me give you a little inside info on why I love writing security stuff.

1. It does not need to look flashy (often a user does not even know it is there) which means it is compact.
The best example is the main filter inside TSC which holds less then 25 lines of code and due to the ultimate power of Perl regex gives an admin virtually unlimited control over content.

The good thing about security code writing is that it only needs to be compact, low on load and I do not have to think about xhtml layout stuff, so basically it reduces the programming load back to writing 99% functionality with only 1% admin interface (which obviously needs not to be flashy as it is just a copy and paste job from what already is there).

The only downside on good security code is that the coder seldom get's his 15 minutes of fame, compared to other coders who write visually flashy and attractive stuff.
Most of the users do not even know the stuff I write protects them from mahem and spammed up boards (unless they check the error logs where the activity of security of course is registered).

I'll claim my 15 minutes of fame for every board that survived any attack without damage.
