Guys I have been looking all over the internet for a reliable, stable and complete messaging system for WordPress but have not found anything good, most plugins have been abandoned and lack features.
I am quite surprised that Codecayon does not have a plugin of its kind, therefore I am here to share some great ideas for you.
Now this message goes to all you top authors @WebFactory @RightHere @JigoWatt @MordaUK @Mixey @PixelEntity and the rest of authors which I really admire.
Concept To allow registered users to send private messages to each other.
- Admin can set quotas to user roles or individual users (Quotas)
- Admin allows which roles the user can send messages to (Role filtering)
- Admin sets which user roles can send mass messages (Role filtering)
- Widget chat in user dashboard (Ajax): chat to be configured by admin (options: allow users to chat only with same role users, allow users roles to join global chat)
- Quick message/reply widget from Dashboard (Ajax)
- New message notification bar in user dashboard
- Logged users get notification for new messages on website (Notification bars, sliding, popups)
I have more ideas but I don’t want to post them here, is someone interested in such project? If not the reason i posted this is that i really need a plugin to communicate with my VIP role users by sending private messages to them globally or individually and the messages to be displayed in their dashboards and also i needed to be able to send messages to my editors, authors, etc via messages and also have a chat widget in the dashboard and select which users can see it.
I love the idea and it definitely has a lot of applications. I don’t personally see myself building such a plugin anytime soon, but would love to see it done.
Will build this in maximum one month
Some good points there so will definitely take note of them too
Hi ! What an interesting idea ! I really like it, and I would develop it but don’t want to make duplicate plugin in the repertory. Zommlt are you really going to develop it, and if yes, need some help ? I’m a new freelance on the market and i’m really searching for great idea like this one !
You guys can work together, the more people working in one idea the better
I have been very busy finishing a website, i will post more ideas once i am done.
Zoomit don’t answer so ill do it for you! You can contact me via skype at jonathanlaf
Since we are both programmers ( my guess on you ) don’t know how a collaboration would work – and I’m no good working in a team when tasks are not clearly delimited. So yeah.
Hey guys, I may be mistaken, but I thought BuddyPress had this feature? I guess if you don’t want all the bloat of BuddyPress, you could use it as a starting point for just pulling out that feature?
I know the buddypress – ajax chat plugin is there . But yes, I think something dedicated to chatting would be cool.
