This app seems great!

Would it be possible for you to add the possibility of adding the list of chat active users on the right (could be turned off)? If so, that would be awesome!

Very flexible and customizable application, works well no matter where you place it (aesthetically).

Support is top-notch as well, definitely a must have.

I installed it since Shoutbox is not ready yet and I like it.

One comment...I'd prefer newer shouts showing at the top instead of at the bottom.

I don't see any setting for it.

ips 4.0.5

very good piece of software with IMHO these limitations:

  1. when the user is on an area different from the chat, when a message is received no notification is triggered (nor sound nor icon message in notifications) and this is a big lack
  2. it would be nice to have a floating chatbox, alway accessible regardless of the place where you are (this is only a hope:smile:)

The app is absolutely brilliant! 

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

Cool, it does what the description says.

I miss a setting to choose how the messages are displayed, ascending or descending order, but other than that it's nice.

Simple install, easy placement on the page and full chatbox functionality.  How is it free?  I don't know, but onlyME comes through for the community yet again.
