    Hi virginia,
    Vmchat does not store previous conversation. Hence student can not look through the history of live chat.
    Vmchat works with iframe. Please give us more detail like theme name , Moodle version, so that I can help you.

    Great work! Is there a way to adjust it so that users may only use it to chat with specific administrative users, as a sort of 'help' feature?

    When I'm logged in as Admin all works fine, when I try to connect with a student account I can see this: Uncaught Error: No define call for local_vmchat/vmchat... any suggest?

    I'm using Moodle 3.3 with Moove theme
    Is it compatible with your plugin?

    @joubou Vmchat works with 3.3 but In Moove theme you may get some css issue.

    @Mamdouh what issues you are facing with snap theme? In different themes, you may face some layout or design issue with vmchat and it can be fixed by writing custom css as per theme requirement.

    I am using this plugin in my local dev moodle with the adaptable theme and works just fine. I have a question before I get it live: A student is able to chat with all the users of the site or just with the ones that are subscribed to the same lessons? Is there any option to adjust this?

    All logged in users can chat with other logged in users of the site. There is no any isolation on basis of course or activity.

    Yes, but is there any way to isolate the chat only to the course enrolled student?

    It is definitely a good feature to have. But currently it is not possible to isolate chat users on basis of course.

    Yes it would be veeeery very cool. And it will be a friend feature for moodle then the socialization will be in another level! But please, see if you can insert restrictions
