BumpIn

Description

Install BumpIn chat widget for your wordpress and give an interaction mechanism to people visiting your website.
Following are some features of BumpIn plugin.

Instantaneous availability: The new widget is available for you to embed on your website right away after selecting a theme and filling a small registration form.

A conventional ShoutBox: A feature that really helps you tapping into conversations on the website you just entered into. Alternatively the main window act as a ShoutBox where your visitors can leave messages.

Embedding Options: BumpIn chat widget can be embedded in a variety of ways on your blog – Facebook-Style chat bar, Side Panel chat, Embedded chat.

Added Features: User login/signup option, Page/Website level shoutbox, Advanced web based Admin Control Panel, Chat Moderation with Name Protection and IP banning

Cross Browser Compatibility: BumpIn chat rooms and widgets are compatible with all major browsers.

Smooth Transition within a website: The new widget remembers you and your conversations while you surf through different pages on a website. So you don’t have to worry about staying on a page while chatting. Besides you dont miss a message as you are properly notified about them on browser/tabs

Better interaction options (public & private) for your visitors: With the seamlessly integrated ShoutBox you can participate in public discussions as well as share your interest in Private one-to-one chat (which remembers your conversation even if you refresh of change to some other page in the same website).

Page level user availability: This one is my favorite. The chat widget shows page level users as well as website level users. Its extremely interesting as most of the websites (web 2.0 or older, content based etc.) have clear segmentation between the hosted content. This helps your users to reach out exact people for fruitful interaction as they know who is interested in the same content they are.

Logged In Users: logged in users of your blog are detected and their nick name is set in the chat widget automatically.

We would recommend that the bloggers (specially) and other sites like forums/content driven sites (generally) to try it out, this can add significant social element.
