Chat Feature

The chat window can be accessed through a pop-up link on the Schedule page and also on the Playlist administration screen for DJs. If you're logged in your user name will be a long string of seemingly random letters and numbers. This is an internal ID for you in the Middlebury WordPress system. You can change this in the text field above the chat box.

More information about this plugin is available on the Quick Chat plugin page.
