free chat plugin is not good
By ,

In-page chat stacks the chats side by side in blocks, instead of in a vertical list. Very weird. Don't know if the premium is better, but not inspired to invest to find out.

This product took down my website--no refunds!
By , for WP 3.8

This is not an easy product to use. It has hundreds of options and no tutorial. I emailed their customer service for help. Someone answered right away, then he disappeared for hours, leaving me stumped. In the meantime, something about the plugin didn't agree with my site and my site went down. I couldn't log in to the site or even see it. I called some tech people of mine, who had me call my host provider, who told me to get rid of the plugin. And so I did.

I paid for this plugin, and they won't refund it. Said I should have read the fine print. So I spent two days of my life fighting with this plugin, only to be told that they'd be happy to take more days of my life and help me figure out how to use it.

Plus, when you install chat, the WPMU-DEV dashboard plugin also installs, which constantly pops up ads everywhere. If you uninstall it, you can't install an update to the chat plugin.

A lovely product, I'm sure, but only for people who know how to write code and all that fancy stuff.

Got throttled by the Host
By , for WP 3.8

After running this for just a few hours, I found that wordpress admin pages took forever to do anything. I contacted my host and was told that I was "restricted" logged into Cpanel sure enough big red warning.

This is resource intense chat... not worth getting booted from the server or to get permanent throttling.

They say it's super easy and light... pfft... NOT

The guide to installing is misleading.

Fun stuff :) simple to implement, easy to use
By , for WP 3.6.1

Who doesn't love chat? Great stuff. Love the fact the pro version can do social integrations, especially google+ worth picking up. I wonder if there are any plans ahead for telling who'd be in a chatroom, and still playing around to find out how you go about purging comments (which is great with the timestamp) and if there would be an option to switch notification bells (also great!) a really great plug in
