Best Chat Ever!

Good Value For Money!
Thank you very much for this excellent add-on. It is helping us to expand our community and bringing users more features which isn't implemented in core system.
Excellent add-on! Really a lot of functions, feels very good integrated and stable, like a official solution from Xenforo. I'm really happy with it and it works out of the box (after set the config and group rights). Minimum 5 stars or more! Thanks a lot for it!
Great add-on with many options to set up. Very friendly to my website. Definitely worth the money as it brings what Siropu promise!
Siropu is the best chat plugin. Perfect with its settings and customizations. It is a stable plugin.

An excellent plugin.
This is amazing. It is super easy to set up, and super useful functionality-wise. I would recommend this over pretty much any chat/shoutbox addon out there.
This chat room / shout-box add-on is absolutely amazing. It has all the functionality you would want, and more. Couldn't be happier with the results after setting this up.
I usually don’t leave review on addons . But I’m very satisfied with this addon, and especially with customer support and service with Siropu. Great communication, fast issue fixing, responds quick. Worth every penny. Siropu is one from few developers which I purchased addons ,which I’m happy with customer service and support, including fixing issues and going extra mile to keep you happy.
Excellent product, well worth the investment. Thank you for your quality work on a quality product!
