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));

JWT: a quicker and simpler version using the HTML5 service

Here is a quicker and simpler version of integrating  HTML5 chat into an existing website than the JWT version described in that post

The bottom sample is a php sample, but you can easily adapt it to JS or ASP in needed

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

$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'
    )
);

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

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

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

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

And that’s ALL:

role : can be admin,  user, guest,  dj, custom1, custom2, custom3

avatar is the http:// image of the expected avatar

profile: the link to the user profile (if available)

startRoom : the id of the room where to start in (roomid is an integer number)

Replace the webmasterid in script by your script id (webmasterid, a positive integer you can find in your chatadmin panel)

If you want to use JWT on your server, please refer to this post.

<?php $json = json_encode(array('username'=>'myUsername', 'password'=>'myPassword', 'gender'=>'male', 'role'=>'user', 'profile'=>'https://monsite.com/profile/myUserername', 'image'=>'https://html5-chat.com/img/malecostume.svg'));
$encoded = file_get_contents("https://jwt.html5-chat.com/protect/".base64_encode($json), 'startRoom'=>5);
?>

Notice: if file_get_contents is DISABLED on your hosting, you can use the curl

$curl= curl_init();
curl_setopt_array($curl, array(
      CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER => 1,
      CURLOPT_URL => "https://jwt.html5-chat.com/protect/".base64_encode($json)
));
$encoded = curl_exec($curl);
