How to Make Chat Open to a New Window
This tutorial shows how to open a menu item into a new window. For this example we're going to launch the chat in a new window.
You need to be able to login to your admin panel.
1. Login to your admin panel.
2. Go to Builders > Navigation Menu Builder
3. In the Active Items area, find the Chat link.
4. Click on the "Chat" text label.
5. A dialog box will pop up. You will see:
System Name: Chat
Language Key: _Chat
Default Name: chat
Target Window: Same New
Visible for: Guest Member
In the target window, select the New radio button so whenever the chat link is clicked, it will open up a new window.
Taking Out the Top and Bottom Header
If you don't want the top and bottom header to appear you need to edit the accompanying template file.
The chat.php page has a page template associated with it named page_57.html. If you open up that page you will see this:
Take out the top and bottom tokens so the script looks like this:
This will display only the chat and not the top and bottom headers.
If you look at the chat.php page, starting on or about line 24 is the following script:
$_page['name_index'] = 57;
The script part you see above is the index number of the template page that is applied to the chat.php page. This system of assigning templates is applied to various pages in Dolphin.
