Installation/Upgrade
See included readme file.

Demo
You can see a demo here (You can can register a new account, or use the Login, "Ideal Chat Demo", and password, "chatdemo") This demo is of the pro version which can be found here!

Support
This modification is released for free, and as such we don't officially support it; however, as time permits we will try to offer support on it. We will NOT be monitoring this thread on a daily basis, your best bet for a fast reply would be to go post here.


Common Issues/Topics
Chat Bar Don't Show Up?
Have you configured the usergroup settings? This is the most common issue we see, and 99% of the time it is due to usergroup settings not being configured properly. So if your bar is not showing up, please verify your usergroup settings before reporting it as an issue.

Messages Don't Show Up?
We are aware of an issue causing messages to not show up for some people, and are looking into fixes.

Modification Has Conflict With Another Product
There is always a chance that two products will conflict with each other! We are aware of some, but please feel free to tell us about any products you find to conflict via our Bug Tracker on our site.

Chat Doesn't Support Certain Characters
The chat can only support the characters your board itself can support! If you would like to support certain characters, you must have your board using a charset that supports them. We have only ever once noticed a chat that didn't support every character the board did, and we are looking in it.

Chat Kills My Server
We have tested the chat extensively for server friendliness, and have found it to be very gentle on servers. We have seen the script run with hundreds of active users without putting hardly any load on the server. However, an improperly configured server may result in any reverse-AJAX/push-AJAX/Comet based chat script killing the server. If you find that your server slows down after installation, you may want to talk with your host about raising your MySQL and Apache Max Connection Limits to a more appropriate amount!

With the admin slash commands, there really needs to be a way to be a way to define who can use them. Either by the usergroup level or at the user level itself. Or even both, having the user level override the usergroup level. I haven't gotten to test it out, but i haven't found any place that defines who can use admin functions

Would it be possible in anyway for a person's whole forums friends list become added in the chat list?
Possible?

Hi,

Thanks for the recent update.

Please can you elaborate on the "Fixed numerous bugs!" ? - This would allow us to identify whether a problem we see has been resolved or not - rather than licking and seeing.

Thanks

I am testing this out right now among a limited number of users on a live site. We all agree that the 'beep' sound for each new message is very annoying. Any update on how to disable this?

Ok, another thing, and I am not trying to down this mod, just giving honest feedback, on vb suite v 4.1.4 patch 2 this mod seems to interfere with the vbadvanced tag module. The module does not show when this addon is enabled and comes back just fine when it is disabled

Well right now admin functions are only for admins. In the end, we will most likely make the chat staff (which is already a setting) determine who can use the admin slash commands.

We placed fixes for every known bug into the new version; however, since we have been unable to replicate some of the issues, a few of the fixes may not actually be full fixes.

We will make a note of that and look into it as time permits.

I would recommend you replace it instead of deleting it.

I got nothing..!?
Installed correctly, turned it on, edited usergroups, still nothing..

I'm using vB4.1.3, CMS
I'm not using vBAdvanced cmps

Where do i start.?


*edit*
Ok so apparently members can see it, & possibly use it.. so it is me personally that cant see/use it.
Is it something to do with Google Chrome, or what else could be my problem.?


*edit2*
I cant see it in IE either.. wtf is wrong with my pc.!?


*edit3*
Fixed, i'm an idiot. I thought the banning option was for usergroups, so i banned #1.
Too bad it was userid's. lol
