We have a ning network set up. The network already has a chat application, but it is limited, and we need something more feature rich.
What we need is to have a chat system set up to embed in a page on a ning site. The Chat should automatically authenticate logged in users, and display their screen name, and if possible icon. This is a process which is described here http://developer.ning.com/forum/topics/alternate-chat-solution-ning
The features we need in the chat are as follows.
1. It must integrate with ning so that members are automatically logged in
2. It must be able to do this while launching from an iframe or a widget
3. We must be able to create a chat log of the chat room conversations
4. We have to have the ability to have an administrator create or delete permanent rooms
5. We have to have the ability for members to create private rooms, that they can invite others to.
If you have any questions please ask them before bidding. Thank you
