    Umbraco member version

    Hi Lee, I would like to repurpose this project to use with logged in members on and Umbraco site.  Does it sound feasible to you?  Anything I need to look out for, particularly?

    Happy to contribute my solution back to the community..

    Hi Barry,

    Cool, sounds good.  The source-code is up on my bitbucket, feel free to fork/hack, etc.

    Things to look out for...

    * The CSS/JS are injected from an HttpModule, (RegisterClientResources), this specifically looks for the "/umbraco/umbraco.aspx" file path. So you'd need to handle which URLs/filepaths are allowed to have the client-side resources injected.

    * The rest of the server-side code is handled via /Base methods, made from the JavaScript/AJAX (JSON).  You'd need to swap the look-ups for the back-office users with the members.


    Keep in mind that I developed this for the CG11 package competition, and haven't looked at the code since then. So any contributions/modifications are welcome!

    I would like to keep the "uBackChat" package as back-office only.  Thinking a front-end members version would be better as a separate/standalone project/package.

    Cheers, Lee.

    Hi Barry.

    Any updates about a uBackChat "Member version"? I am really interested on adding this feature to a Scientific Research website i am currently working on, allowing investigators to share ideas and discuss projects on the fly. Actually i am using nForum but an additional messaging functionality would be great.

    If you are still working on it, i would really appreciate access to source code or a compiled package.

    Cheers, Ivan.
