FAQ

I get the message “Domain is not allowed to host this application”

In order to use Chatblazer for chat you will need to signup for a free hosted chat for your domain at www.chatblazer.com.

Does Chatblazer run on an iPad?

Because Chatblazer software uses Flash to chat, it will NOT run on an ipad, or any other platform that does not natively support Flash. However, there is a non-flash chat version under development.
