User Feedback

You may only provide a review once you have downloaded the file.


install was quick and configuration very easy.  I've have absolutely no issues at all with this product.  I used a couple of different chat rooms over the years when my site was VBulletin based.  This one is missing a couple of features that my members really liked.  A major one is a list of WHO is in chat.  Not just how many.  The other is very minor and just sort of a fun feature but the ability to send random sounds.  They had a lot of fun with that.  Sounds could added via the Admin CP.  

In spite of missing those couple of things, I am very happy with the product and have no regrets with my purchase.  I

Good idea! i've install this on my gamer forum, and get a good results ... but after 3 month, i've remove it. All new members prefer to ask on chatbox then ask on topic area.

Now i moved all 'chat' to oficial discord. Maybe i use this plugin in another project.

After using the free version for awhile then deciding to upgrade to the full version I'm very pleased with what I got. This app is full of features making it very versatile for communities.

If you are still considering whether or not it's worth upgrading to, it definitely is! Dev is very responsive and does quality work.

Hello, why my members can't turn off the chat sound in the private member chat? I also noticed that even if It turned it off, it still doesn't turn off. Overall, great app for my forums and my members are happy. It's just that that's annoying to keep hearing the sound even when we try to turn it off.

Has anyone even gotten this thing to display, at all? I spent hours tweaking this thing and so far nothing... nada. This is going to become a weekend project. It won't even come up no matter what page I place the widget on. This is beginning to look like I just made a $34 donation to the developer because this app is DOA for me. I can't even get it to display. 

UPDATE: After a late, long night and a busy day doing other things, I got an email from the Developer, who was very eager and willing to help me get the app to work on my forum. I ended up sending me about a dozen or so screenshots as he walked me through the process of running the Support screen on the administration control panel, checking the system log, submitting some error messages, which showed that some files were missing during my initial installation of the app, and then uninstalling and reinstalling the app on my forum. The app worked like a charm the second time around. The developer also showed me a video which showed me clearly how to use the widget to place the app on the home page of my forum, which is what I was trying to accomplish. He was patient enough to wait for me as I worked my through the process, until I was finally able to send him a screenshot of the working chatroom on my home page. 

THANK YOU to the developer for helping me out and for sticking with me to the end until I got it to work. I apologize for the bad review, which I amended above to 5 stars!

Response from the author:

Hi,

You need to go ACP > Community > Chatbox+ > Rooms to create a room first, then use the widget to display it.  If you don't know how to use, please PM me I will help you.

We'd been trying to find worthwhile chat software since Flashchat went away years ago. This is it!

Works perfectly and the admin settings give you so much control over your chat. In addition to that support for minor changes has been amazing! 

I highly recommend this app for your forum to keep people engaged in real time.

Been a long time fan of Chatbox FREE and decided to go for the upgrade. Installation and setup is very intuitive and easy, learning what everything does took me a moment, but overall I'd say it's very well set up to be used without a manual. Overally, very positively surprised by all of the features and the simplicity of use - well done!

I happened to find a bug with the cookie that remembers whether or not your user chat was minimized or not and the author responded immediately and within 5 hours confirmed the bug and that it will be fixed. Amazing support - thank you!

If you are looking for a chat app, this is the one to get. It is better than The Jackal's app in every way possible. It just works like it should and my members are very happy to have something good in place. I literally disabled The Jackal's app and went without chat for a while before finding this one.

💕Just awesome! 💕

Very complete chat app for your community:

  • easy to configure (although it has a large number of features and customization options)
  • very stable (even what's announced as "in beta testing") - no bug or crash in 1 month of intense usage
  • floating popup: all your public and private conversations follow you when you're browsing the site
  • 1-to-1 floating chat: users love it!!
  • club chats are a great working tool for communities which use clubs
  • the online list makes everyone more trustful and comfortable to chat in rooms
  • works as fine on mobile devices and desktop
  • very reasonable price!

I have been a happy user of the Chatbox Free for two years, which is a already a very good app (especially considering it is free). At the time, I discussed a couple features I wished could be added but the (nice and reactive) developer had no plan to invest worktime on it, which is totally legit. I'm glad he changed his mind! This new version has 99% of the features I dreamt of, for a very competitive price.

It would be nice if club chats could be added in the "rooms" tab of the global (popup) chat, and/or if the floating popup could stay even when on a full page chatroom (but I understand there are technical difficulties for this one.) Very minor flaw compared to all it brings!

Don't wait to add this great app to your community, it is 200% worth the price! And many thanks to @onlyME for his great job!

It says that there is an update available.  OK??  Where, How, What do I do?  I click on the link "Update available" and it brings me here to this page.  Now what?  I do not see a link for update?  What should I do?  Do I need to download to my desktop then upload to my CP?  Sorry I am so stupid but go ahead and guess what I am thinking?  You can not and neither can I guess what you want me to do?

Jeff

 

Ok.  Came back here and downloaded the file by clicking the Download link at the top.  Then opend the file and saved the tar file.  Then went back to the CP and clicked on Upload New version.  and I got " YOu do not have permissions to do this"

So,  Yep,  I am frustrated.  Why bother even telling me that there is a newer version available when it is not really available.  ????  Totally confused.

Hi,

I can not reproduce the problem. Your admin account may have restrictions to upgrade applications.

Please check your PM, I'm waiting for your response to help you resolve the problem.

There is a big problem, the private messages plugin causes a continuous page refresh when registering a new account. Sorry, you can't create an account.
I also recommend that you add the option "private conversations only for friends" to prevent spam being sent to everyone. For users to write with each other they must be in friends.
If the user has a long login and I send a message to us, his login comes out the window. I recommend doing (Testers on The ... (1))

Response from the author:

There is "Not show in pages" option in Chatbox+ > Settings > Global Chat. You should add register page to this option

http://yourdomain/register/*

Let me know if you have any problem.

Definitely the best chat application available for invision community not only compared to chat apps on here but all chat apps available elsewhere

This is even better than flashchat from many years ago that really helped us generate revenue from our forums.

10 out of 10 all round for this one.😃

Above and Beyond Support for my custom theme, Chatbox+ is a much needed improvement to the old chatbox, new instant messaging feature is a good option to add for premium users to generate some funds too

Good application. Could you add an archive for old messages where the admin can set a timit limit on how old messages the archive has. Also permissions so that you can decide who can see the old discussions in the archive. The thumbnail size of pictures could be defined by admin. There should also be an option to not allow users to see the old messages of other people from their user profiles.
