mini update - chat 2

backend api has almost been completed. some of the changes coming up.

1. urls will be required to post in bbcode.
2. general html tags will be removed. later to be replaced with bbcode

(these are being done to streamline the upcoming front end display of chat, and to prevent any gaping security holes that currently exist)

3. chat is searchable!
4. finished in backend in but wont be completed in initial front end run : scrolling up and down of chats.

5. users will able to edit, or delete their own comments within a time period (stubbed in, wont be live).

------- front end features -----
chat window will provide live notifications of new messages received. update immediately on posting , etc


ETA --
backend : tomorrow will be fully complete
frontend : TBD - probably a week. this is simple to get done quickly, complex to require some serious double checking.

mini update - chat

ok, figured out why chat isnt quite working the way we want it to.

So basically all chats are cached. this was probably a 'reasonable' idea 10 years ago. (even then, not really),

anyway, since the chat was developed to do all the work on the backend, caching makes sense. these days however, we can format the chat client side. that will take some extra work but basically, make the chat very fast, live and well, easy to manage.

I'm just sifting through the spaghetti code to get all the possible chat actions , clean it up, and proceed to build proper api.

then its drag n drop anywhere.
