Not only is this application awesome, its developer consistently implements feature suggestions that makes it fit perfectly with my community. This includes adding things such as: reportable messages, the ability for chatrooms to match the community theme, preventing users who need to acknowledge a warning from chatting, and many more. I have never worked with a more responsive developer.  The application itself? Works flawlessly just as you would expect. I highly recommend it.

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.ūüėÉ

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.

Best looking chat application on the marketplace what more do you need! Our members love the popup chat, another option to hide it from desktop view rather than mobile view would be good because we currently use it as a block on desktop view. The ability to add chat rooms as a group feature is a must have for any IPS community this is money well spent! 

Cheers Again,

Now we have access to both a free copy with limit features and a premium copy with ton of extra's. For long while members wanted more features to the current chatbox, well the wait is over and many features are being built into this app. You can't go wrong with this app over all.  This app gives a list of rooms, how many people are in the rooms. You can give the rooms a real chat room feel or a chat box feel.

This is a must have application. Thank you @onlyME for this work.

I only have one question. The title and the cartridge  (surrounded by a red line in the picture below) are too big.


How can I modify them ? I want them smaller.

Additionally, it will be perfect if it was possible to hide this application when we are with a mobile.


Response from the author:


Please pm me if you have any problem. 

The feature to hide the popup on mobile is in my to-do list.

Love it! However one suggestion. Maybe add a bar at the bottom of the page, where people can open the chat anywhere they are when browsing the forum. Like a popup chat. Sort of like Facebook. That would put this plugin to the top 100%.

Response from the author:

Please try v1.2.3 :wub:

I do not recommend purchasing the plus version of the already amazing free version. The plus version is just a mess to configure, matching it to your current theme is quite the mess and requires you to edit the css. The way how things are laid out just seems clunky and not really user friendly. I made the wrong purchase... I asked for a refund in hopes for one but due to understanding reasons I wasn't refunded due to safety reasons.

I respect the time it took to make, but this is just awfully executed in my opinion.

Response from the author:


I'm sorry to hear about that. But you purchased and downloaded the app. After that, you asked me to refund with the reason "wrong purchase". You didn't let me know what problems, or bugs. Then you edited your message and mentioned the free version that is easier and cleaner. This is ridiculous because there are a description and screenshots about the file.

Anyway, feel free to let me know if you have any problems with the app.

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?



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.


Response from the author:


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


Let me know if you have any problem.
