mChat show local times?

Post by nou nou »

Hello,


Is there a way, or would it be an extension idea perhaps, to have mChat show the user's local times instead of forum time? It would help in chats with users from across the globe.

Doesn't the option in user control panel give the option to choose time zone?

What nou nou is asking for, I think, is to be able to see the local time of other users. When he sees it's morning time for someone he's chatting with, he can send a ☕ instead of 🍺.

I like the idea, and it should be fairly simple to cobble up an add-on extension that does this. Any suggestions how to display this in a way that doesn't clutter the messages?

Maybe have the time show as it does and on hover time let the title show poster's local time when posted. :?: :beer:

Hello All,

Place Terry2 Clock icon in the user chat menu,

then when hovered/clicked like Sniper_E said,

we see User Time Zone.

Otherwise,

first in front of user avatar,

a bar like chatrooms,

but there is 3 say colours,

and the colours mean:-

Black = 8pm till 4am

Amber = 4am till 12pm

Green = 12pm till 8pm

:lol:

and last but not least,

zone number,

like I am +8 asia pacific/Perth,

so just have +8 in front of my avatar :mrgreen: :ugeek: :twisted: :lol: 8-)

Time zone differences are now added to mChat messages on this board. For now it shows detailed information only on hover, there's nothing to click on, yet. Let's see how useful it is and how to best improve it.

I will post the extension for donors eventually. :+1:

As there hasn't been further feedback and the extension seems to work reliably, I have posted the first official version in the add-ons section. :+1:
