wpmudev has outdone themselves here again.
my only gripe is that the plugin seems a bit overwhelming initially because it is "overflowing with features !!!"
with their above excellent support and reading through the plugins "Usage" page (wpmudevs documentation) i realised this is the only chat plugin required for any purpose. BuddyPress group chat, wp admin chat, front end chat, embed in a page chat, you name it it has it together with customisations galore.
congrats once again wpmudev !!!
Highly configurable and very reliable.
Thanks for all your hard work guys.
You gotta go pro :-)
I read all of the reviews from 2014 and am reluctant to install. Have there been any improvements to, or replacements for this product?
If you are going to use this plugin... I would have to say that you need to be on a VPS or Dedicated Server.. A shared hosting platform is not good for real time activities such as chat... This is not a developer problem, but a server issue... This is much like loading video and audio files on your website. If you are not on a dedicated or VPS server you will have server overload problems... Upgrade your server or don't use this plugin...
This is not an easy product to use. It has hundreds of options and no tutorial. I emailed their customer service for help. Someone answered right away, then he disappeared for hours, leaving me stumped. In the meantime, something about the plugin didn't agree with my site and my site went down. I couldn't log in to the site or even see it. I called some tech people of mine, who had me call my host provider, who told me to get rid of the plugin. And so I did.
I paid for this plugin, and they won't refund it. Said I should have read the fine print. So I spent two days of my life fighting with this plugin, only to be told that they'd be happy to take more days of my life and help me figure out how to use it.
Plus, when you install chat, the WPMU-DEV dashboard plugin also installs, which constantly pops up ads everywhere. If you uninstall it, you can't install an update to the chat plugin.
A lovely product, I'm sure, but only for people who know how to write code and all that fancy stuff.
Who doesn't love chat? Great stuff. Love the fact the pro version can do social integrations, especially google+ worth picking up. I wonder if there are any plans ahead for telling who'd be in a chatroom, and still playing around to find out how you go about purging comments (which is great with the timestamp) and if there would be an option to switch notification bells (also great!) a really great plug in
I want to thank WPMU for this awesome product. This is the easiest chat plugin ever.
Can't find better chat plugin! It's easy to setup and exactly what we need! Great!
After WPMU DEV's last overhaul on this product this is one of the top Chat plugins available.
Nice to be able to embed the chat in a page with a shortcode
