Feature request, room invite menu icon.

This is only a suggestion for a feature that would make room invitations just a bit quicker.

If an 'Invite to room' icon could be added to the mChat post menu, along with options such as 'Reply with quote'. Similar to how 'Send Private message' works now.
It would simply open the same invite modal that the 'Invite users' link does now. But with the recipient name pre-entered under 'Users to invite:'.
It could perhaps utilize the same function for lifting the poster name as 'Respond to user' or quote does.

I'm not certain how it would effect the mChat Icons Menu add-on, but I assume that would have to be updated as well.

This is only for consideration. In either case, thank you for your time and for all the work that goes into making these extensions.

This is now available in Rooms 1.2.9, see here: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=94&p=2471#p2471

The Icons Menu add-on doesn't need to be updated, it already supports icons added by mChat add-on extensions such as Rooms. :+1:

Thanks for sharing your ideas. :beer:

The new menu addition is great, I'm happy to see it could be implemented :)

I have just found a minor bug though, when users who are logged in as invisible on the forum are invited using the new button, their name is entered with a tag:
<em>Username</em>
It's easily enough removed, but if it can be filtered out that would be good.
I don't think there are any other scenarios where this problem appears.

This is actually a bug in mChat and will be fixed in the upcoming 2.1.3 release.
