Available Permissions for Imbachat Plugin

For the Imbachat plugin, there are several permissions available that can be assigned to user roles. These include:

  • imbachat_activation_role: Activate the role in the Imbachat plugin (must be selected).
  • imbachat_available_chat: Make the chat available.
  • imbachat_send_message: Allows users to send messages.
  • imbachat_send_files: Allows users to send files.
  • imbachat_send_geo: Allows users to send geolocation.
  • imbachat_audio_calls: Allows users to start audio calls.
  • imbachat_video_calls: Allows users to start video calls.
  • imbachat_audio_message: Allows users to send audio messages.
  • imbachat_video_message: Allows users to send video messages.

Setting up Chat Display for Guests

To set up the chat display for guests, you need to create a "guest" role and enable the "imbachat_available_chat" permission to display the chat for guests. Alternatively, you can disable the "imbachat_available_chat" permission to hide the chat.

Using Shortcodes for Paid Roles

To create paid roles that have access to certain chat functions, you can use the [ic_change_role role="newrole"] shortcode to change the current role to the new role being installed. For example, if you need to set up a private role, the shortcode will be [ic_change_role role="private"]. Note that it is not possible to change the administrator role to any other using the Members plugin.

By following these steps, you can set up user roles with the Members plugin for chat monetization and manage chat access based on user roles and permissions.

    I used the User Role Editor plugin on my website, and it proved to be a very useful tool for managing user roles. It has a simple and intuitive interface, making it easy to configure and modify user roles. I also appreciated its flexibility - I could create custom user roles and assign them various access permissions. This plugin greatly streamlined the website administration process and allowed me to easily manage user permissions. Highly recommended
