Really Great App.  Would like to see a few features added, like video support to get it 5 stars.

That being said, for users that had IPB3 with Shoutbox on their forum and have upgraded to IPB4 with Chatbox, here is a really simple query to run that will pull over your chat posts from Shoutbox and throw them into your Chatbox so you do not lose them.  How this query is written you will want a clean chatbox (no messages) so you either want to run this after installing or you will want to delete your current entries.  I could maybe write one to "merge" the two, but won't if there is not enough interest.

INSERT INTO bimchatbox_chat (`id`, `user`, `chat`, `time`)
SELECT `s_id`, `s_mid`, `s_message`, `s_date` FROM shoutbox_shouts

Works perfectly, it just lacks the list of users online on the chat.

Thank you very much

Overall, the app is great!  It does what it says on the tin, is easy to install and has some great features, like posting photos inside the chat and being easy to read and use on mobile devices.  One suggestion: I'd love to see a setting for guests to chat, even if it's just with a temporary username like "Guest".  In an ideal world, they could enter a name that would just be text rather than a link to a profile, as members are.  This is one feature my users are really missing on this app versus our old Shoutbox.  Again, this would be a toggleable setting, because I know not all communities want a guest-friendly chat.  But overall, I really appreciate the app; it's definitely one of the most useful add-ons to my site.

It would be great to get some detail information instead of a generic "Bug Fixes"

Overall, fantastic product and credit to the Dev!

The app is absolutely brilliant! 

You should fix the time in the chatrow, because it's 3 hours off. At least in my community.

The only piece this app is missing is highlighting of tagged username? Also would be nice to have notification for it.  Other then solid app! Been using it and many thanks for this!

Hello.

I really liked the chat, but can I still add the following functions?

1. Make the "login" button so that you can enter the user list on the chat pages. This is necessary in order to form a list of "Who is chatting online." And the "exit" button to exit the list. Those who millet left the chat page are automatically logged out.
2. Individual color and style of the text, nickname. Personal settings.
3. Archive chat messages broken down by day.

This is nice and simple to use. The only downside is we can't see who is active right now and no options to privately message someone

Excellent app, works great, and its up-kept.  

___/ Obligatory Feature Requesting
~ A toggle switch in the menu which allows all links to be opened in new tabs.
~ Add "word-wrap: break-word;" to the css, so posts like "aaaaaaahhhhh!" will word wrap.
~ Allow default height to be set to 100%, so opening the full page Chatbox page (added to nav bar) can actually fill the entire screen.
  For those who don't want to use it in widget mode.

What is the difference between this chatbox and the expensive Babble Chat? They both seem to do the same. Thanks.

Best free chat :D I have one idea, you can add shout logs to ACP? Is hard to watch in database without user name.

Still works great on 4.3.4.

My users love this plugin! I love that it supports having its own tab/page (without needing the IPS Pages application), and I love that it works great as a widget. So I have it as a sidebar widget on my Forums page, but also on its own full-page (same chat). This allows people on their computer browser to follow and interact with Chatbox conversations while surfing the forums... or for people who actually want a full-page chat.

The author was quick to follow up on my dumb question, which is great support...especially for a free app.

Thanks so much!

P.S. The "Auto Welcome" app will interface with Chatbox if you want new user registrations to be posted into chat, so it's a great compliment to Chatbox.
