    Hi Carlos,

    The documentation that explains how to install messenger and configure it for your theme is located here:
    https://wearemadhouse.wordpress.com/documentation-madhouse-messenger/

    If you're looking for how to install Madhouse Avatar, then head to this page:
    https://wearemadhouse.wordpress.com/madhouse-avatar-documentation/

    Lucky you. The last release of Messenger (v1.50.1) has been reworked and the default theme is fully compatible with the OsclassWizards theme.

    Madhouse AUTHOR9 months ago

    Hi Bibek,

    Yes, with this plugin your users will be able to send messages. But they won't receive notifications by mail of new messages. For this feature you need to have a working mail server.

    hi on me theme it can be show mail icon with red messages number on corner like your theme? or only shows "messages(1)" to me theme?

    Madhouse AUTHOR6 months ago

    By default, the messenger widget displays "Messages (4)", using ajax.

    It can be easily customized to look like what we have done on our theme. However it will require you to have some technical skills. Some detailed instructions here:

    Notifications by mail of new messages and unread messages daily using cron, is optional?

    Madhouse AUTHOR6 months ago

    Yes, you can finely tune the settings for email notifications.

    Global:
    - Enable e-mails

    Notifications:
    - Send an e-mail everytime a user receive a message
    - Stop if the user has more than X unread message(s)
    - After that, send a summary every Z new message(s)

    Daily reminders:
    - Enable reminders

    - Send a reminder every X day(s) for Y day(s)
    It will send an e-mail every X days for Y days to users with unread messages.

    I need chatting system. For example quikr.com, alibaba.com like chatting system. I want to live chat. Your plugin can be done with? Pages can not be reload.

    Madhouse AUTHOR5 months ago

    Hi,

    This plugin is not a live chat.

    A live chat is basically push notifications from the server to the client that requires :

    1) To install Node.js – or equivalent – on your server.
    2) A bridge server side events component to send push notification to browsers/phones.
    3) A heavy JS client in your theme.

    Three things that a plugin has no control over and that would never be plug-and-play like Madhouse Messenger. :)

    That's a whole different level of infrastructure complexity, technical skills and costs ($). I'm not saying its not doable, Messenger internal design could be adapted but it will cost a lot of time and money (development, support, infrastructure, etc).

    Have a nice evening,
