User Accounts and Chat Room

  • Question
  • Updated 10 years ago
I was just wondering if there is going to be user account features, like either for the whole website or you just had to sign in for parts of it and I was also wondering if there would be a chat room for websites in the future. If you know when they might come out that would be very helpful.
Thank you very much!

Hi "hi"

User accounts:
1) With our next release we are going to provide a feature that will allow you to password protect your whole site, or part of it. People will need the login ID and password to sign in to the pages you lock (password protect). This will be available in a week or two at the most.
2) In future we will make it possible for people to sign up for an account on your site. This is a much more challenging task and it will take us several months to complete. I don't have a release date for this feature yet.
3) Chatroom: you can add one of these to your site right now. Sign up for an account at Meebo and create a chatroom. Copy the HTML embed code they provide. Drag and drop an HTML widget onto your page and paste the code. You will then have your own chatroom on your site.
(Soon you will be able to add a Meebo room with a simple drag and drop. We are also hoping to include this in our next release.

We look forward to releasing the features you are looking for to the SynthaSite community!

You could password protect your chat room so that only people who have the password can chat there. Not an ideal solution I know, but it's the only thing I can suggest until we add user registration.

Hi Monique,

I've been following all the requests for this feature for a while now and I'm so glad to finally see an answer "This will be available in a week or two at the most" in your 1st point.

I have a password protected feature on my home page http://www.rflogic.co.za/ but it has its problems.

1) Works with Firefox but has problems with IE.
2) Password can be seen by veiwing home page source code.

So I'm gonna wait "a week or two at the most" and delete my password HTML code. Thanks - did'nt know it would be so soon.
