How it works

The “chat” category is autonumbered. This is so instant messages can be added without duplicate page names. In addition, this allows for simultaneous page creations without instability problems.

The CSS code is applied to the “chat” category. This wipes the page clean, so that an entire window space can be used for the message editor. It also manipulates the message editor to make it clean and minimal for use in the chat room. The CSS also contains data for the layout of messages within the conversation.

The Javascript code is where all the magic happens. It contains the code necessary for conversation update recognition; which makes it possible for the conversation to automatically update only when you or somebody else posts a new message.

The Template code allows for message previews in the chat conversation, in addition to automatic redirecting to the conversation when finished.

The Newest code provides the conversation window with information on conversation updates.

The Chatarchive code presents an archive of the chatroom posts, and is also used by the application to extract the most recent posts to display within the Chatroom code.

And the Chatroom code, funnily enough, puts the Chat application in action.
