This is the best chat add-on that I've tried on any platform. My forum ran for almost 7 years on vBulletin 4 before converting to XenForo, and during that time we tried nearly a half dozen chat solutions. Some were passable, others were very buggy. A few were very unpopular with our members. But Siropu's chat is a massive hit. Our members absolutely love it. This is the best of the best.
This is a very valuable addon that I recommend using. It catches a lot of duplicate accounts.
However, after it catches possible duplicates, you need to take a lot of time to compare accounts to see if it really concerns a the same person. This addon does not report on important match factors which ties accounts together. Every day of the year I have to spend a LOT of time on this while 90% can just be automated.
The last update was January 2016. I had expected a yearly feature release for an addon which costs 48 + BFO.
Meanwhile browsers have implemented many privacy features which reduces the effectiveness of this addon.
This would have been a 5 star review if the above was addressed.
I knew this addon was going to be handy when I installed it, but I could never have anticipated how much work this addon really saves my staff. its a real life saver. There are so many tedious functions which now happen automatically. I am able to run my big board with less staff because of this.
This is an amazing search addon that will offer a serious upgrade to your site. It adds predictive search with live preview, similar threads will avoid duplicate threads, 'did you mean'. This is all really useful and will greatly enhance search.
This high quality code runs smooth on my big board. Xon is really fast with updates and bug fixes. Solid addon!
I would not run a forum without it. It adds essential functionality like conversation search and the ever useful conversation like. Highly recommended! Do combine it with Xon's Elastic Search Essentials.
Like all Xon's addons this is high quality code that will run smooth on any board. No matter the size.
With this addon you can force your members to post as you desire. For example use line breaks, no short posts, block links to specific sites, block specific terms, etc. The possibilities are endless. An error message will inform your members exactly what they need to do. It greatly improves post quality. I use this in combination with Post Friction on my big board.
