Took the plunge after a few weeks' of discussions and advice, and we took the plunge to purchase @CometChat
I am wondering who else uses it and if you've noticed any changes with traffic to the site and registrations?
We'd started going from 10-20 registrations a day, to 10, to 5 then 1 every day or two every other day..
I tried everything I could think of then realised - the week previously, we'd installed this.
Our Twitter which is a lifeline for us, had also been hacked non-stop.. eventually we had it sorted. We've over 2k followers and it hit us bad with followers/following and so on.
So I reverted back to @ArrowSuites Arrowchat.
Within a week my traffic was back up and back to lots of registrations/newbies and traffic was back to normal.
I reinstalled CometChat after a borked update from Arrowchat.
Almost two weeks later, and I am back to still good traffic, but registrations barely trickling through again and most of all, likes and posts have dropped again.
I am so worried about this, and after much debating and toiling I though I would ask the XF community who uses CC and who else has seen a traffic hit and registration hit?
Here's my graph from the past month and the two peaks reflect arrowchat being reinstalled.
The gold/bronze being members joining against the weeks.
Don't get me wrong, it could be sheer coincidence - but if CC is affecting the site, how and in which way?
I've tested it using iPhone/iPad, Windows Phone (Nokia Lumia) as well as desktop PC and laptop..
I just can't figure out why it's happening and what's going on. It could be complete and utter sheer coincidence, but something's niggling me and I just don't know what to try.
I hope someone may have an opinion on this based upon similar instances and experiences?
