This chat works great for my users
By , for WP 3.9.2

I have been using Quick Chat for a couple years and it's seamless. Thanks for the plugin! It's by far the easiest, and most visually appealing in-page and sidebar chat I've tried to date.

Uso en Siempre Informados con Hubert

Este plugin ha sido una solución rápida y muy eficiente para montar una sala de chat en mi sitio Siempre Informados con Hubert, la verdad es que es bastante sencillo de instalar, configurar e implementar.
De ahora en adelante mis usuarios podrán mantenerse siempre informados ya que gracias a este plugin he podido implementar un canal de comunicación mucho más rápida y además le proporciona un dinamismo a mi sitio que no lo podría haber logrado de otra manera.
El único detalle está en que demanda recursos considerables del servidor, por ello deben tomarse en cuenta ciertas precauciones, la manera con la que yo he solucionado este problema es colocando la interfaz del chat en una sola página del sitio, así el chat no carga cada vez que una persona entra a Siempre Informados con Hubert sino carga sólo cuando ingresa a la página específica: http://siempreinformadosconhubert.com.ve/chat con esa simple solución me he ahorrado muchos recursos del servidor

High CPU resouce
By , for WP 3.9.1

This is an very easy to install plug-in with no problem. Most of all, very nice layout and with all the happy faces. The only issue is running high CPU usages causing time to save the page and take much longer time to load the page as well. For this reason, website who are using this plug-in can have problem with the hosting for sharing server with others. Hope this can be fixing and update this problem. Other than that, we love it.

Good. But...
By ,

Very nice and handy plugin. But to use a nickname instead of username is wrong and dangerous. This is a bad idea. Unfortunately, it is impossible to use the plugin.

How do Guests become Members? How do they register?
By , for WP 3.8.1

I've just installed QuickChat and have a couple of queries - I hope someone can help ;-) Firstly, How do Guests become members ? On the Guest page the words Guest*** are frozen, cannot type anything in that box so Im stuck... Also, how do you assign Avatars ?
Thank you.
Regards,
Tony.

P.s. Ive installed in WordPress

This chat plugin is outstanding
By , for WP 3.8.1

Well done. And thank you so much. FYI this is the first chat plugin I have used since my old one was susceptible to XSS injections (I had to take it down). For all the amazing features in this plugin please be sure to keep it hardened to attacks.

Keep up the great work.

Works, but has conflicts
By , for WP 3.8.1

No way to remove the time stamp (the same thing others are looking for) - too big of a space between messages also.

Gap between messages could be smaller, it does not take many posts to completely fill a page.
Instead of
Name:example
Time:example
Message:example

(that's 3 lines minimum per message then a large gap before the next message)
User1:Message
User2:Message

Would be the best option
or at least
User1:
Message
User2:
Message

Works Great otherwise unless you have Minify JS enabled - then all it will say is "Loading"

On sites without W3 total cache enabled - its a great chat.

Brilliant - 5 Stars. This is actually FREE.

Thought I would be sent to a pay-site situation or 3rd Party. Not so. This feature is fantastic.
