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!

We are working to help everybody but its impossible to provide good support in this thread. If you want support for issues please go to our site and open a support ticket from the client area, or open a bug report in the bug tracker.

We are working to help everybody get things running smoothly, but do to the complexity of the script there are many different issues that arise depending on server configuration and addons installed. But without a structured way to manage things its impossible to help everybody and fix things on a global scale to fix these issues.

Should this only work on the vBa home page? I thought it would be on every page of my forum.... Very nice otherwise.

We have started a poll a bit ago to determine if we should create a vb3 version of this mod. The poll will serve as the decider for if there is enough demand, so spread the word and vote away!

Not working on 4.1.4. Here's what I see on the footer:



Installed on another forum and it worked right out of the box (4.1.7).

As I mentioned above I had this mod installed on a 4.1.7 forum. Had ONE user (me) online for testing purposes and this mod was eating up 15% of my CPU load at the time. Why?

The script was update_ideachat_stream.php or something like that. I had it set to a 3s refresh.
