    This is really quite an awesome add-on. While it's easy enough to install, it took me awhile to go through all the many options and see for myself what most of them did.

    The thing I really like about it is, just how many ways you can configure it to show a Conversation Button/Icon just where and how you want it to appear.

    Since people are social beings and they are coming to your forum for discussions, why not make it even easier for them to Start Conversations with each other?

    The only reason that comes to mind, is if it's just too expensive an add-on to do so. However, Bassman has created this add-on for FREE which really just makes this a no-brainer! KUDOS, on a job very well done!

    Great addon and easy to customise, worked perfectly on the Social theme after a minor CSS tweak :). Definitely recommend it to make starting conversations that much easier to start.

    Excellent addon, been tested and revised and edited and updated. Places the option of starting a conversation right where it will create a greater interaction between members - under the avatar in the conversation threads. No need to click a few times to "find" the conversation option. I only wanted to have it show under the avatar, so only a minimum setting - check a couple boxes and voila! There are many more ways to display the option, but I'm very happy with minimal for now! Donation on its way soon after this review!

    I love it! Thank you so much for this because it was so frustrating not being able to start a conversation from a user's profile before. I love the added contact button under a user's name in the threads. So great, this should be added to xenforo software as a default.
