I tried all of the vbulletin chat addons and this is the only one that worked correctly.. all of the other ones didnt load or were slow or had compatibility issues with my other addons.. the only thing I would like to ask for is a way to host the files on my own server instead of third party servers..

Sorry, it is a third party service.

On the other hand, it doesn't use your server resources nor slow down your website. They mange the security, infrastructure and updates of your chat.

Have this installed fine but there is only me in the chat box

Have made this available to only the admins to test but only I show up. Is there something I am missing?

Do they need to set an account on your site?

This works fine for some of our members and others are saying it is causing their screen to bounce up and down. What could be the problem?

I have been using this chat since it first came out, going on over 2 years now I believe and I love it.

In the beginning it had a lot more options that it does now, it is very watered down but it is still a very good chat solution to have on your site.

I have installed this chat system on over 10 websites and I have never run into any problems with database or disk corruption, hacks or any other issues in the time I have been using it. If you go to Joomla's extension page you can see that I was the first one to give a review about this chat system and to this day I stick to it.

I will be installing it now on my bBulletin install and hope it works out the same.

Is there anyway to block the chat showing on certain pages? We would like to not have it show on our arcade page (arcade.php)

Edit: Just answered my own question, found where you can restrict pages in the settings.

Chat Size


I wanted to know if it is possible to reduce the size of the chat bar. Instead of having all the screen resolution as long as it is scalable in the sense of length. Also because I occupies the space of a few notifications of another addon.

Sorry for my english.

Best regards

Hi nerowolfe,

You can edit the Css of the chat to achieve this.
Navigate to your account at, "Appearance - Custom Css".

Please let us know if you have any questions or comments.

Try Cometchat. It's very similar to this and has a number of different versions and it's a one time buy. I use it on my forum and it works great.
