hello baba-papa :)

unfortunately, i haven't been able to test my module thoroughly on the latest version 2.3.x...

for the problem with the missing function "currentlyOnline" i have a solution, just add this to your Page class:

    * Get a list of currently online users (last 15 minutes)
    * @return Member Array
   public function currentlyOnline() {
      $currentlyonline = DataObject::get("Member", "LastVisited > (NOW() - INTERVAL 15 MINUTE)", "FirstName, Surname",
         "INNER JOIN Group_Members ON Group_Members.GroupID IN (1,2,3) AND Group_Members.MemberID = Member.ID");
      return $currentlyonline;


this code i have copied from the forum module, if i'm not wrong... but you're right, i need to integrate that into the chat module instead asap.

I added that method into the Page class. Isn´t that method supposed to be in the Controller? Why didn´t you call the method at it´s original lacation?
Meanwhile the chat module still doesnt work. I get an XML error when I try to call the chat page. Maybe me theme "holeinone" doesn´t work with the module.

The template error was due to an error in the nested conditionals in the layout/ tempate. I changed it and appended it to this post.
