Totally lost
By , for WP 4.0

I just paid to upgrade. Then I click on settings and I get taken to a registration page that I can't log into. There isn't a way to reset the password or anything. This makes no sense at all. One of the most basic functions of a paid service is to be able to get a reminder or reset a password to log in. How am I supposed to do this?

Plugin works great, had some issues pretty happy with it

At first the plugin pissed me off cause the barc.com site kept going down, but contacted support and they are addressing the issue. Very good support from the barc site.

The plugin works very well with mobile responsive. Had about 5 other plugins that said they were mobile friendly but werent, this one kicks ass on mobile. Its clean and has some decent functionality.

Could use some additional features and options to customize the themeing, Polling is great, but could use a "sticky poll" feature so polls dont scroll.

All in all a good plugin, its a keeper.

So easy to get started...

Can't wait to get my site finished, then I'll be back to give this a real review, but in the meantime, this was so, so easy to install and set up! Thank you, Barc! ;-)

Security
By , for WP 3.8.1

Security had people coming in and placing random crap by numerous individuals posting expletive data and causing problems. Instead of fixing the problem right away they started issuing bit coins. Did not want any bit coins. Wanted ease in chat room flexibility. Will never use them again.

Just spins all day long while watching it

I am getting dizzy watching your cute little ball circle go around and around....

Is this plugin suppose to be a ball game or something?

I must have not downloaded the right plugin..

I have tried your chat plugin with 50 different theme's, and also both with single website and now with multi-sites wordpress...

I just don't know what else to do here...

Have you discontinued development or support for this plugin?

Thanks for your help

excellent chat plugin

This is a really neat concept. The chat is basically a JavaScript widget so nothing runs on your server. The only thing Barc adds to your site is a piece of text so their server can verify you own your domain. It's easy to configure. Works well with modern browsers I tried.

Be careful though older IE versions not supported. I was a little bit confused by the options in the WP admin panel. Grant (the owner) said they are addressing.

I would give it a 4.5 but I can only give whole stars.
