I installed the chartroom plugin and it is nice little plugin, however, I did not see the option to delete the messages. I am just wondering if there is no option to delete them or something has gone wrong during the installation.

Hi, Chat Room plugin developer here.

No, currently old messages are not deleted automatically. I intend to add that in at some point (I should have more time over Xmas to do that).

The messages don't take up a huge amount of room but in the meantime you can delete old messages by running a query like this:

DELETE FROM qa_chat_posts WHERE postid<1234

Replace 1234 with a recent postid e.g. 100 less than the highest one in the database, so if the latest message has postid 12300, use 12200 in the query.

Thanks for the tip. I was not actually even thinking about deleting the old messages although it could be useful. What I was actually worried about is that if someone will post some spam or obscenities or say something bad about me :)  then I would like to just delete this single message. It would be great if you could also add the option for admins to delete single messages if possible as well.
