It's not really fast at all. I have it on 2 pages and have only my paid members using it.

From what I can tell it loads a ton of stuff in the background to support all the other features. It is the last thing to load on my pages by almost 3 seconds.

Again, I asked if it was a VPS site. As that has a lot to do with it.

When I host it on my OWN server, it's lightning fast. And this is only a home server with cable. And all users stated the same.

When I host it on VPS based, it really matters as the php and server config matters. What I'm getting at, is a server is only as good as the person administering it (And I'm not saying you aren't) so the settings, server load of that cpu etc matter.

I use HostGators for hosted and it's been a lot faster than most, and the cheapest (like $5 a month)...

Maybe grep it and see what's using the processes the most. Post them here and VBDev can see where the issues lay.....

I'm almost positive you can configure it a lot, but there are TOO many settings.

VBDev and I talked about a total makeover of the plugin and the future version will be less cpu intense as it MIGHT have a plugin system so you only add what features you want.

VBDev.. Anyway HTML can be used within the chatbox? I'm currently using a plugin to show a rainbow effect, but it won't display in the chatbox, but it works in the archive.

Sounds like a server issue here. Have you checked the cpu usage?

Its working for me.

Is it possible to replace the notification sound with the facebook chat sound?

Edit: The drop down actions are not working. Do you have any idea what to do to fix this?
The help box will not close when opened.

We expected to see the chat to appear in mobile and touch devices, we cannot use it there since long time !
only when we set on a PC can use it !

Hope to see this very important need ?

Thanks,,

If you have a swf file of the sound yes.
You are still running 3.8.x right? Don't you have a close link in the menu?

@Lemminator
Have you checked all your chatbox templates are reverted and have you tried to empty your browser cache?

@mgurain
I don't have such request in my project tools page on my site, hence it has never been filed.
What's wrong with mobile? Chatbox is too big?
