Gustaf,

The description at http://www.openacs.org/xowiki/chat tells that streaming mode requieres libthread (which i already installed) and a small patch for aolserver.

What and where is the aoslerver patch. I need to install on my box.

The default configuration of the usage of the chat classes in the chat packages use just the polling mode, which is the simplest and and has the least requirement. Recent versions of aolserver do not need the patches (see http://www.openacs.org/xowiki/tag/patches?popular=1)

Gustaf,

Here it is the scenario i am trying to accomplish:
The functionality is the possibility to attach files on real time, when people are having a conversation in the chat. (i.e. Add download file link within a chat room)

In the chat room template (i.e. ajax-chat-script.adp) I created a button "Add a file", which is a link to an ad_form on an extra popup.

Once submited, the formulary adds the file in the content repository as well as its respective revision.
Then a message, with the link available to download the file, is sent to the chat room and the popup is closed

However, i got problems with posting the message in the chat room.

1) Somehow, the link has not been posted in the chat room. Online users can't see the new message with the link to download the file.
I used the API [chat_message_post $room_id $user_id $message $moderator_p], in the end of the ad_form new_data block. I believe i missed something to make the message go through

Please see the code for the file file-add.tcl

2) how to make this link html enable

Do I make sense?

cheers,
