This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



A plugin to integrate chat on any page of your website. The plugin will allow users to insert a chatroom in a post or page with a shortcode. There is currently no options page to adjust settings. All customs settings are done through the shortcode generator located in the WYSIWYG editor of all pages and posts. Look for the blue logo icon (blue cloud) in the editor.

Even is using this but: Plugin make no sense as there is only lobby room to see When I go to my channel only I see this, other also see lobby room Where is the logic of this plugin? It works on my other, test site without SSL (with code snipped) but not on this one ;( By the way, when it works it should not let any stamp from deleted messages from users without login (twitter), there are too many trolls in the world.
