How to Create Chatrooms in BuddyPress Groups
By default, BuddyPress does not include a chat room feature within it. Enabling a chat room within your community site can be quite a great feature for your users.
Within this tutorial, we will learn how to integrate chat rooms within your WordPress groups, with the help of the BuddyPress Group Chatroom plugin.
Step 1: Install the BuddyPress Group Chatroom plugin
Step 2: Enabling chat
Once the plugin is activated, there will be a “chat” tab under the “manage” group section, whereby the group admin can then enable chat within the group.
Step 4: Accessing the chat tab
WIth chat enabled, members to the group can now access the chat tab available within the group.
Step 5: Sending of Messages
Group members can then send messages to each other within the chat tab.
