    This plugin looks fantastic. 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?

    Hi Pinky and Jai,
    Is there a way students can look through the conversations that happened on the live chat? Where are these stored? Thanks

    Hi, if I iframe something from within the Moodle page but which doesn't normally display VM_Chat (e.g. the live chat), I actually get the VM chat bar at the bottom of my iframe - even if in the actual screen VM chat doesn't show up. Could somebody help me? Thanks!

    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.
