Features you can do with the RumbleTalk WordPress chat plugin
Create chat moderators
Since you have many chatters in one chat room, it’s good to have a helping hand when you’re not online. Or, you can also set yourself as a moderator to use all admin rights.
Here’s how you can set chat moderators with the WordPress chat plugin.
- Go to the RumbleTalk chat plugin settings, then click on Settings.
NOTE: The chat hash is blurred because you should always keep your chat hash private.
- Click Users.
- Then, choose Add new user.
- Fill out the form. Choose admin with global access or admin for specific rooms only to set a chat moderator.
NOTE: If you set a user as admin for a chat room, then this will allow other WordPress users from your database to login with the chat automatically and set passwords only for the administrators.
With these easy steps, you now have moderators, who can help you monitor your chat. Who knows, you might even use the moderated chat as your preferred chat type.
Set auto login for WordPress users
