Jabber Notes Jabber is working presently at Babson now for a few months successfully If you show users pictures, be wary of having so many pictures on each page, use sprites if possible Dynamically load photos upon opening the Jabber roster

Jabber tricks and tips Since we know if you’re online in gtalk in the roster which is on the page, any mention of a username can have a “presence icon” by using some jquery and theme username http://api.drupal.org/api/drupal/includes!theme.inc/f unction/theme_username/7 Basically in jabber roster if you give each username a class with their unique user name and then also use the same class in theme username, if one is green (online), red (busy), or grey (offline), all classes can be displaying presence wherever said username is on the page.
