How to insert ad into chat ?

There are many ways to insert ads into chat. This is especially easy when you know some JS.

Remember: you can your OWN javascript into the chat.

If you want to insert ads inside the text chat, then you should use the news managements.

If you want some visual ad, there is a <div id=”ad”></div> present on the chat (on top right) when you can insert your ads. The best way to do that is also to insert your OWN javascript into the chat and with some code display the ads.

Here is a sample of how to randomly display 3 ads every 30 seconds:

$(document).ready(function () {
// list of ads !
let ads = [
"<a href='https://www.yoursite.com' target='_blank'><img src='https://www.yoursite.com/img/ad1.png'></a>",
"<a href='https://www.yoursite.com' target='_blank'><img src='https://www.yoursite.com/img/ad2.png'></a>",
"<a href='https://www.yoursite.com' target='_blank'><img src='https://www.yoursite.com/img/ad3.png'></a>",
];
setTimeout(function() {
let ad = randomAd = ads[Math.floor(Math.random() * ads.length)]; // pick a random ad
$('#ad').empty().append(ad);

} , 30 *1000); // loop every 30 seconds
});

How to host your chat on YOUR server ?

We have 2 formulas to allow you to host your chat on YOUR servers

Purchase the code source and we install it to your server.


This formula is expensive but you are totally independent. You can re-install it if needed, modify the source code. This is adequate for high trafic chat websites.

We now have a new intermediate formula

The chat remains on our server but you host media streams and sockets.
We can install the media server part (streaming) and the sockets (chat text) on your server.

What are the advantages of hosting that on your server ?

  • You have 100% bandwidth of your server
  • You have 100% CPU power of your server
  • you have 100% CPU control of your server
  • You are independent

Ready to go ?

  • You still got updates automatically since the chat is hosted on our servers except the webcam and the sockets !
  • You still have to pay subscription since the chat script part is still hosted on our servers
  • Generally it takes 24-48 hours so we set it up on your server
  • You need a dedicated server with ROOT access
  • We recommend 4 Giga RAM, 4 cores and root access. It must be LINUX. We recommend DEBIAN 9 distribution (but centos/ubuntu… are ok)
  • We need a ROOT access to your server
  • Of course you can still use your server for other tasks like hosting your sites
  • Price is 199€. It is JUST ONE time price. No recurrent payment

css

How to change my chat’s design ?

If you want to customize the look&feel of your chat, you need to use CSS.
If you don’t know what is CSS, please visit that site. (however learning CSS will take a few days, so If you have some urgent customisations, I suggest you hire a freelancer or eventually contact us for this extra task)

Do not overwrite, but add !

Many users ask us to send them access to CSS so they can modify it. This is a big misunderstanding about how CSS really works.
In order to maintain the script up to date, you will never change script or CSS, but you will add yours. The added properties will simply overwrite the existing one.

How to add my own CSS ?

Go to your chatadmin panel -> config ->Design/Layout and insert there the link to your own CSS under the Link to external CSS to customize your chat text field.
Ex:
https://www.mywebsite.com/myCss.css

How to write my own CSS ?

You need good knowledge of CSS. Use Google Developer tool to get the selector of your DOM, and then write the property.
Ex: Here is the CSS to overwrite the way messages are shown in the chat:
We hide the avatar, the time and make the message fit 1 line:

div.message img.userItem {
display: none;
}
div.message div.timeStamp {
display: none;
}
div.message div.content {
box-shadow: none;
border: none;
display: inline;
}
div.message div.flex-property {
display: inline!important;
}
.arrow-chat {
display: none!important;
}
div.message div.userItem {
display: inline;
font-weight: bold;
}

div.message div.userItem:after {
content: ":";
}

The messages will appear now:

CSS to make messages appear on 1 line !

How to directly enter a room ?

(UPDATED – fixed bug)
New feature: It is now possible to join a particular room directly at login

2 cases

Let suppose you want to join room id : 1620
(you can find out your room id in your chatadmin)

https://html5-chat.com/chat/54/?startRoom=1620

 

  1. if you don’t use JWT authentification, just pass the url parameter startRoom
    ?startRoom=1620
  2. You do use JWT to login, then just inject the parameter: startRoom: id
roomid
Where to find the room id ?

 

so for room : 1620, you just need to add

'startRoom'=>1620

So for instance your JSON will be:

 

$json = json_encode(array('username'=>'myUsername', 'password'=>'myChatAccountPassword', 'gender'=>'male', 'role'=>'user', 
'image'=>base64_encode('https://html5-chat.com/img/malecostume.svg'), 'profile'=>'https://monsite.com/profile/myUserername', 'startRoom'=>1620));

Easy developer integration : how to integrate html5 chat into your site ?

In your chat admin panel, you will find a quicker and simpler way to integrate the html5 into your existing chat

You have now 3 scenarios possible:

How would you like to integrate your chat ?

  1. I want anyone to enter my chat (easy integration). Anyone will choose his username and gender at login
  2. I want people to register before they enter chat (easy integration handled and stored by html5-chat)
  3. I have already my own website with registered users and I want to connect my chat to my existing website)

The most probable scenario in real life usage is #3.

You will be guided on how to integrate your chat with these 3 steps process.

 

profile

How to add link to profile ?

profileYou can easily add a link to your user profile (when you have that feature in your existing website)  in html5chat by adding the profile parameter into the JWT connection.

For that you need to define the url link that leads to your profile and pass that into the profile parameter

ex: ‘profile’=>’https://www.mysite.com/user/myUsername’

Step 1: you create an array of your user such as:

$json = json_encode(array('username'=>'myUsername', 'profile'=>'http://www.mysite.com/user/myUsername',  'password'=>'myPassword', 'gender'=>'male', 'role'=>'user', 'avatar'=>'https://html5-chat.com/img/malecostume.svg'));

Step 2 : you encode it using the html5 JWT online service

$encoded = file_get_contents("https://html5-chat.com/protect/".base64_encode($json));

Step 3 : you inject that encoded string into your JS script

<script src="https://html5-chat.com/script/xxxxx/<?=$encoded?>"></script>

where xxxxx is your webmasterid parameter.

And that’s ALL !

}
$password = 'YOUPASSWORD HERE';
$webmasterid = 'YOUR SCRIPT ID HERE';
$gender = isset($_SESSION['session']['data_genre']) && is_array($_SESSION['session']['data_genre']) && $_SESSION['session']['data_genre'] ? (key($_SESSION['session']['data_genre']) == 1 ? 'Homme' : 'Femme') : '';
$avatar = isset($_SESSION['session']['picture_file_path'], $_SESSION['session']['picture_file_name'], $_SESSION['session']['picture_file_ext']) && $_SESSION['session']['picture_file_path'] ? $_SESSION['session']['picture_file_path'] .
