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!

Try this one instead. Comet Chat
I have it on my 3.8 test site (link below)

Link I posted above shows it to work with 4.0 as well. To me, it was well worth the money.

I'll be happy to buy the pro version, but I do need to know you're going to be on top of fixes as the vbulletin versions get updated. The Lite version here doesn't work on my vBulletin 4.1.12 test site.

I like the features and how access to the chat is set by usergroup, which is exactly what I need, but it has to work obviously

Using vB 4.1.11. Enabled this mod and also set usergroup permissions. Friends Online showed up, listed no users, even though I know for sure there are users online. Slowed down my site and also prevented the vBshout shout box contents from displaying. Also, when you click "Settings" for this, does nothing and throws errors when you refresh the page. Disabling this plugin.

Most every facebook style chat I've used has overloaded the server.. It's really not worth the headache.

Comet Chat is awesome! It works great and is very cheap. Has some nice features too that are useful apart from the chat. I won't be renewing my hosted chat next year with 123flashchat. Thanks for the heads up on Comet Chat!
