Chat Room Preview Pane

 

Allow users to view your chat room content from a web page without logging into the chat room.  This feature is based upon the Recent Room History feature, which must be enabled for the Chat Room Preview Pane to display chat text. Although a user may not submit chat text to the main chat window using the Chat Room Preview Pane, a user may submit questions for a moderated event (see Remote Event Question Submission Pane).

 

To implement the Chat Room Preview Pane, log into the service administration web page to retrieve the code.  Click the ROOMS tab and edit a room.  Under "Display Room Codes", click the "Chat Preview Code" link.  Copy the HTML code that displays, and paste it into the HTML source of the web page where you want to display chat room content for that chat room.
