Works decently enough. The mobile side of the responsive design could use some work though (at least on the dedicated chat page). On phones, the chat window height should scale to the height of the display in such a way that the text input box and options snap to the bottom of the screen (height changing when the keyboard pops up to match) like you would see in a native chat app. does a great job of doing this in a web browser.
Such a complete chat, tons of options. The rooms option was something I'd been searching for a really long time and works better than I expected.
Super awesome chat, tons of options. Support is top notch! We went from Shoutbox XF2, which was good, but my members complained about lack of options like we had in the Taigachat Shoutbox in XF1. Upgrade to this version and I feel like a hero now, nothing but love from the members. Thanks Siropu!
Talk about upping the anti. From xf1 to xf2 version, they honestly feel so different. This version of chat is just so smooth and lovely to use.
Excellent addition to any forum, and the constant support from Siropu is first class. A must have, at a great price.
A very complete Chat system. There are many options to enhance our members experience. The Chat is responsive to the theme and also has a compact mobile version. I recommend it ! ;)
very cool and just wondering if there would ever be a cam/mic option anytime in the future? I think that would be a good thing to have if it can happen.
What an excellent resource! the chat isn't that easy to set up but set user permissions and poke around the options and be prepared to be blown away! Fantastic addon with support second to none! Highly recommended for anyone moving to v2 from tiaga chat or similar :)
Great addon, easy to install and use. Instant hit with my users. All forums should have this as it compliments a forum and adds that something extra.
Superb chat room with loads of features. A chat room is a key area of our site and the members love this version.
