In its current state, the UI is simply too bulky and any attempts to minimize it crams everything together making it almost impossible to use. The current template feels very generic and the fact that there's no home for the chat other than last saved state also makes it feel generic.

Most of this is my own personal opinion and short-sighted experience with the software. My review is mostly impacted by the price of this software. The "Free" version only includes a 5 player concurrent access and 1 chat room with no moderators. Why even have this? for $20.00 you get 50 users which is pretty good until you realize you can only make 3 chat rooms? And a max of 5 moderators? It's nice knowing the data is stored on your cloud servers but our systems process it. So you're adding a paywall to unlock content that should already be included.

Would also like to note that in order for this software to integrate into ISP you have to pay $29.00 a month otherwise members will be forced to use chatwee accounts.

Works good, tested with Chatwee 1 and 2. Chatwee 1 is less expensive and closer to what IPS chat was with only one chat room. I'm using the embed feature within page but also tested the tabbed version which is a cool link at the bottom of the screen with user count and quick access. With the embed code for version 1, would like to see the compact mode on larger screens so that the user list is on the side rather than on top. Also with the plugin would like to see chat users in the menu item like the IPS version was, would involve more plugin work. Otherwise very good. Also missing usergroup permissions for the plugin itself. You can shut it off to guests within the Chatwee dashboard but no way to shut it off per usergroup in IPS.

After a couple of years of enduring the useless, overpriced, and poor functionality of CometChat, and their declining care for their customers, ChatWee came along just in time. Although it does have some serious design flaws in my opinion (such as iDeath mentioned in his Review), and there are some wonky behaviors I hope get addressed, but the chat works beautifully and my community LOVES it. Now our instant messenger/chat system from ChatWee is being used constantly since the day of installation as opposed to the previous CometChat installation that sat unused and pointless for years. Keep improving on ChatWee and I would give it 5 Stars. For now, I can give 4.
