I made this about a month ago, so please don't make fun of me for its crappy coding, just thought I'd share how I did it


$message = $_POST['damessage'];
$sender = $_POST['dasender'];
$connect = mysql_connect("*******", "******", "*****");
mysql_select_db("*********", $connect);
$query = "INSERT INTO chat_test (user, message) VALUES ('$sender', '$message')";


$connect = mysql_connect("****", "******", "******");
mysql_select_db("*******", $connect);
$id = $_POST['id'];
$query = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM chat_test WHERE id='$id'");
$numcold = mysql_num_rows($query);
if($numcold == "0")
$chill = "yes";
$chill = "no";
$fetchit = mysql_fetch_array($query);
$message = "$fetchit[message]<br>";
echo "&retm=$message&retu=$fetchit[user]&reti=$fetchit[id]&retc=$chill";


$connect = mysql_connect("******", "******", "******");
mysql_select_db("*******", $connect);
$query = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM chat_test ORDER BY id DESC LIMIT 0, 1");
$fetchthis = mysql_fetch_array($query);
echo "&lastid=$fetchthis[id]";

here is fla...http://www.mad-host.net/chat.fla

MySql Table chat_test
id int(11) No auto_increment
user varchar(255) No
message varchar(255) No

you can also use LONGTEXT for message so peeps can make longer messages. I set this page up so that a friend of mine could talk to me online (his parents dont want him downloading instant messenger programs), and therefore there isnt much security (no eregi's or preg's checking for formatting), i wouldnt recommend using this either as it could be much faster and there are lots of things that i'd change if i had time to.
