Deactivated user can chat 5 Years, 3 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hello,

I configured chat, that only members of usergroup "chat" can use it. If a user is taken out of this group, he can still chat, until he logged off or session-table is deleted. He can even chat on, when his account is deactivated.

Always cleaning session table affects the other users, that write topcis, posts, community-posts, blog-posts, chat ... so this is not a good solution, in my opinion.

Is there any possibility to change any setting or integrate a line of code, so group-membership is checked?

Regards
Samson

Hello Samson,

i'm not sure if you mean changing users assignment to groups while users are still logged in and started to use the chat.
If so, Joomla once a user is logged in keeps all assigned groups in session, thus a logout/login is always required to refresh it.

Regards,
John

Hello John,

you are right. I thought, it would be a way to ban a user, to take him out of the usergroup "chat". But this will not work, if assignment to usergroup depends on session. Is there another way to ban a user? I know, members can ignore other chatters, but this is not, what I want to do. I really want to prevent them from further using the chat - like banning them by username.

Kind regards
Samson

Hello Samson,

i think that at the moment the only effective way to kick off a user instantly from a chat , is take him out from the chat usergroup and click on the Joomla logout button in the backend control panel.

Other than that, a specific feature in the context of the chat should be developed to allow administrators to ban users in backend. Eventually i can plan this feature for the next release.

Kind regards,
John

Hi John,

this would be great. I think, such a feature would be useful for many webmaster and another very good argument for your chat-software.

Kind regards
