A Standard User has no administrative privileges and will have to enter their password protected user name and password when entering the chat room. Creating standard users will bypass any of the Internal Member Database users. If you only have a few standard users to create, please follow these steps. However, if you would like users to be able to sign up for a standard user name and password on their own, please implement code on your site for the Internal Member Database

 

A Site administrator may create additional Site & Room administrators or standard users by following these steps:

Step 5. After you create a new user you will be able to modify the following information:

 

Email address of the user (not required)

 

When admin users log into a room they will be invisible to other users. Site and/or Room admins can make these changes in the GUI admin console.

 

Invisible admin users will be able to see one another. When an admin is in invisible mode their user name will be in italics.

 

When avatars are enabled the Site and/or Room admins will have a admin only avatar.

 

This feature will place all Site and/or Room admins on top of the user list.

 

 

Step 8.  The user that you just created is only a standard user. They have no admin rights and can only log into the chat room with the password set. If you would like them to be a Site or Room Admin there are additional steps that need to be taken. Please select below for more information.
