In this guide, we'll show you the basic settings with the chat module on SynoForum.

Chat is available here:

Or you can click on a navigation tab.

On the right side of the chat header, you can see icons:

Check Rules and Help menu for news and tips.



Let's take a closer look at the Settings menu:

You have various settings here. Maybe just a word about Display mode. If set to default, you can see chat module only on a dedicated page. If you set it to All pages, you can see chat module on every forum page at the bottom. By clicking on the bottom chat bar it will open up.



Don't miss the Notifications tab in the Settings menu:

Also if you hover the message in chat you get some options:

With synology chat?
Aha I just understood what you want. No it can't be done. Syno Chat app will not link to any outside sources.

When I read this I was like hey this is great.
Can we add like a chat that one can like chat when they like feel like talking to themselves, like when you're all alone and like wanna say something, like you wanna make an intelligent conversation with yourself, like when you're "hey I wanna talk to myself". Like instead of like going to a shrink. And especially now that we’re like don’t have a robot anymore.

But it's not like that? Right?

“Rusty thinks @WST16 is talking to himself. Walks away...”

I'll be soon talking much more to myself as I’ll give that mongoDB thing and rocket chat another shot to try to configure it. The silly thing doesn't even have a CLI! Oh dear.

Maybe add some chat rooms led by bots... each with a different personality... a Tinder for introverts like myself :cautious:

... or like @WST16, I could just go on talking to myself.

@SynoMan is worried that the bots may take over the forum. He wants to keep the human touch, with red pills freely distributed to all members (in addition to cookies in the rare occasions when we have some).

But it’s ok. Talking to yourself is therapeutic, don’t be afraid. I’m an expert.
