|LiteChat is a complete chat server package which incorporates the features of sophisticated Java Chat applications without the need to download slow loading applets or software.
Best of all, LiteChat is absolutely free with a Business Hosting account at Webmasters.com.
|LiteChat runs on a totally private chat network which means only authorized users can access your chatrooms. Unlike IRC chat, No other client or server is able to connect to our network.
|Choice Of Colors
|In the initial log in screen, users can select from a multitude of colors to use for the duration of their chat session. This helps distinguish users, plus gives them the ability to customize their appearance in the chat.
|Entry With Image
|In the initial log in screen, users can enter the URL of any image they like to use for the duration of their chat session. Like choice of colors, this feature allows users to have their picture or any image on the left of their name.
|Users are able to send private messages to any other user by clicking on a radio button next to that user's name, and then clicking on the "Private" button. Only the person to whom the private message was sent and the person sending the message can read it.
|Any user can invite another user to a private room by first clicking on the radio button next to that user, and then the "Private Room" button. The user is then directed to a private room inaccessible to anyone other than the user being invited, while the user being invited is sent a link to the private room in a private message. When that user clicks on the Private Room link, he or she is directed to the private room where the user who invited them awaits. There is no limit on the number of Private Rooms that can be opened from any chat session.
|Multiple Room Entry Points
|In the initial log in screen users are prompted to select a room for their chat. Also, rooms can be changed any time in the middle of a chat session by selecting a room, and clicking on the "Enter" button..
|Ability To Send Images
|Images can be sent by clicking on the "Image" box, and then entering the URL of any image on the web.
|Ability To Send Hyperlinks
|Hyperlinks can be sent by clicking on the "Link" box, and then entering the URL of any website. When a user clicks on a hyperlink from the chat, a new browser window is opened to load that web page.
|Ability To Change Nicks
|Users can change their nicknames, color and image by clicking on the "New Name" button at any time during the chat.
|The chat client is connected to the server at all times, so chat data is continuously updated in real time. For maximum performance, LiteChat does not use Meta Refresh Tags to retrieve data.
|Real Time User Updates
|User lists are continuously updated in real time as new users enter the chat, and others leave.
|Scrolling On/Off Switch
|By default, LiteChat is set to auto scroll down each time a new message is entered. Users can disable this feature by clicking on the "Scrolling" button. To enable Auto Scrolling after it has been disabled, the "Scrolling" button needs to be clicked again. This feature is useful when there are many messages or images a user has not seen at the top of the chat screen.
|Each time a new user enters any room, LiteChat verifies that there are no users by that name already chatting. If that is the case, the user is prompted to enter a different nickname.
|Webmasters are given access to one html page at the top of the screen to customize as they choose. This is a great feature for placing links, logos, and sponsor banners on the chat.
|Log-In Data Storage
|Each time a user enters the chat, his or her image and nickname are stored by LiteChat for future visits. To delete or modify their data, users simply enter new info, and log in.
|There is no limit on the number and level of operators in any room.
|Three Operator Levels
|Operator Audio Alerts
|Master and Room Operators hear an audio chime each time a user enters or leaves the room being monitored.
|View Private Messages
|The Master Operator can read private messages in all rooms.
|Enter Private Rooms
|The Master Operator is able to enter all private rooms opened during a single chat session.
|The Lecturer and Master Operator is able to send public and private messages in a lecture room. Regular users are able to send private messages to anyone else in the room except for the Lecturer. This feature was designed for guest speakers to chat without being disturbed. Users can field their questions to the Master Operator who can in turn pass them on to the Lecturer.
|Ability To Kick Users
|The Master and Room Operator can remove any user from a chat session by first clicking on the radio button next to that user, and then on the "Kick" button. Once kicked, a user should not be able to re-enter the room he or she was kicked from under any nickname until all users leave the room.
|Ability To Ban Users
|The Master Operator can permanently remove any user from all chat rooms by first clicking on the radio button next to that user, and then on the "Ban" button. Once banned, a user should not be able to re-enter any room of the chat permanently. This feature can be reversed if needed.
|Auto Session Cleanup
|The chat window is cleared within 60 seconds after the last user leaves the room. The next user entering the room will only see their message on the screen, with all messages from the previous session deleted.
|Operator Account Administration
|LiteChat makes it easy to create and maintain operator login accounts. The Operator Admin tool allows creation, editing, and deletion of operator accounts (nicknames, passwords, and privileges).
|Special Operator Login
|The Special Operator Login screen allows operators to log in using their operator credentials created with the Admin tool. Operators are only allowed to use nicknames assigned to them by the master admin.
