[jitsi-users] Questions about MUC


#1

Hi,

a few days ago i found and installed jitsi to evaluate it. I was
pleasantly surprised
by the features and the UI. I think its one of the best XMPP clients out
there.

But when I started to test MUC capabilities I missed some features.

1. I didn`t found a possibility to administrate a MUC room (like set a
password, make rooms persistent or not and so on). I think there is a
button for that feature (in the room UI) but its not clickable in 2.2
stable/2.3 nightly.

2. Private messages to/from/between MUC participants are not possible. MUC
participants in the room list are not clickable and if a participant is
sending a message to a jitsi client in that room, the message is not
showing up. There is no indication that someone is trying to send a private
message (http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0045.html#privatemessage).

3.Before entering a MUC room jitsi asks about the desired nickname for that
room. But then the nickname is not used. Instead I enterd the room with my
full JID as nickname. Inside the room I can change my nickname without
problems.

So I think point three is a bug but the other two I am not so sure about.
The question is, are these features still in development or have I missed a
setting.

Thanks
Dominik

PS.
Tested with
- stable 2.2 windows x64 client
- 2.3.4752 windows x64 client

Hey Dominik,

Thank you for your kind words!

But when I started to test MUC capabilities I missed some features.

Indeed the MUC features in Jitsi have been quite neglected but we have just started workikng on them again so you are coming at the right time :slight_smile:

1. I didn`t found a possibility to administrate a MUC room (like set a
password, make rooms persistent or not and so on). I think there is a
button for that feature (in the room UI) but its not clickable in 2.2
stable/2.3 nightly.

Yup. That's the place and the fact that it's broken is a known issue. Will be fixed soon.

2. Private messages to/from/between MUC participants are not possible.
MUC participants in the room list are not clickable and if a participant
is sending a message to a jitsi client in that room, the message is not
showing up. There is no indication that someone is trying to send a
private message (http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0045.html#privatemessage).

This is not currently supported.

3.Before entering a MUC room jitsi asks about the desired nickname for
that room. But then the nickname is not used. Instead I enterd the room
with my full JID as nickname. Inside the room I can change my nickname
without problems.

Known issue too. We will be fixing these (and many more MUC related issues) in the following month or so.

Cheers,
Emil
