Looking for an experienced web developer to create a custom chat room solution for our existing website. There are plenty of off-the-shelf options available online but they either have too many features, not enough, or most importantly, can't be integrated into our current database. We already have a community with registered accounts, we simply want to allow members to enter the chat room with their own accounts after already being logged into the website. PHP/MySQL design is preferred as this is what the site is already built around. We are not looking for anything flashy or fancy at all - we want this to be a very simple chat solution. Users are pre-logged in with their website credentials, their name shows up on a list of current users in the chat, and when they type it gets added to the chat. Moderators need the ability to delete or block users, but other than that, we don't need private message options, multiple chat rooms, etc. It should be mobile-compatible and it would be nice for emoji to work. We don't need a separate mobile version, just that it should work if someone pulls up the site on their phone. As it is a very straightforward project and is basic in design, we have set a fixed rate on the job. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate at all to send a message. Thanks!
I am looking for a mix of experience and value
