Released Dynamic Live Chat V4

Bryan Garaventa-2
In case anyone uses the Dynamic Live Chat Plugin at
http://gutterstar.net/dynamic_live_chat.php
V4 has been released.

Change Log

1. The front-end coding has been converted to use the AccDC Enterprise API for all client side behaviors; including automatic message announcement for screen reader users using the automated message queuing feature that prevents message announcement overlapping. The JS file is viewable at
http://gutterstar.net/chat/js/init.js

2. The operational aspect of the script has changed, so that Dynamic Live Chat can be dynamically included within any standard HTML page using JavaScript, and no longer requires a PHP insertion within the desired page.

A live demo is also available at
http://gutterstar.net/dynamic_live_chat.php
Which can be dynamically invoked by clicking the "Open Dynamic Live Chat" button.

The backend of the script is a simple PHP script, which has been condensed. Since the front-end of the script which controls all dynamic behaviors is not actually integrated with the server side scripting, the PHP script can easily be replaced with a more robust database query script while maintaining the same level of dynamic functionality using the front-end AccDC Enterprise API controlled UI.
Similarly, the visual appearance can easily be modified as desired by editing the file "chat.css".

The package can be downloaded directly at
http://gutterstar.net/cgi-bin/LiveChat.zip
