Currently not using it, but it's a great add-on.

A huge request I would love to see implemented is for a place to store chat logs. I know that the database stores all messages, even past the limit you set in the Chatbox Options. I'm wondering if you can take that and make it into its own page.

Response from the author:

I like, I will add it in the future.

Great addition to Chatbox!

Feature suggestion ~ It would be nice if there were a toggle switch to force links to open in a new tab, rather than the current tab.

Nice add-on, even if I developed the same thing a couple of weeks (but didn't published because I didn't have enough time to do it !).

I think that you could add tweets import also :p
