Chat room question. [Knowledge base seems to be unavailable]

Hello everyone,

Here’'s my question: Can I make chatrooms NOT password protected, and just limit access by making the users members of the chat?

Sure you can. In the admin console, access “Group Chat” and then to “Room Summary” to select your room. Once there,

select “Make Room Members-only”

and then add JIDs to Room Members under “User Permissions.”



I’‘ve tried that, but when the users try to type a message into the room they cannot. If I make a password for the room and they use that to access it, they can type messages. I’‘m trying to make it so that people can just enter a room and interact with it normally once they’'ve been made a member.

i know it’‘s possible… i’‘ve made such a room (and i’'m using it)

you have to make a new room… limit the access to room members only … and then add these users (still in the admin interface) … if that doesn’‘t work… perhaps you should try another client and report what’‘s it’‘s behaviour … (e.g. i’'m using psi)

which works with ths configuration
