Note for Contributors This page should explain what can be seen on the moodlesite.com/mod/chat/gui_header_js/index.php page (the view inside a chatroom)
The chat module contains some features to make chatting a little nicer.
Smilies Any smiley faces (emoticons) that you can type elsewhere in Moodle can also be typed in here and they will be displayed correctly. For example, :-) = Links Internet addresses will be turned into links automatically. Emoting You can start a line with "/me" or ":" to emote. For example, if your name is Kim and you type ":laughs!" or "/me laughs!" then everyone will see "Kim laughs!" Beeps You can send a sound to other people by hitting the "beep" link next to their name. A useful shortcut to beep all the people in the chat at once is to type "beep all". HTML If you know some HTML code, you can use it in your text to do things like insert images, play sounds or create different coloured and sized text.
