    This is addon for Envolve Chat. It's an easy to use chat for your web site. You can see demo on http://www.envolve.com

    Installation:

    - Copy the "EnvolveChat" folder to xenforo\library (don't change folder name and/or case!)
    - Go to xenforo admin control panel, Home->addons -> Install addon, choose addon-EnvolveChat.xml and click "Install Add-on".
    - In admin panel, go to Options -> Envolve Chat Settings , and paste your api key in the first field, change other settings (optional) and Save

    Note that I'm not a "real" programmer so there may be bugs, performance issues, etc ... you know, use at your own risk.

    Envolve is a top-end hosted footerbar chat (akin to facebook chat). Envolve didn't have a plugin for XenForo which was keeping us (Phoenix Rising) from switching over to XF from vBulletin...so Svet volunteered and made the plugin for us, which we're releasing to the community.

    We expect envolve.com to be picking up the long term maintenance of the plugin and to include XenForo as an officially supported platform. Hopefully they'll be posting here on XenForo.com soon.

    Attached is a quickie screenshot of the chat in use at envolve.com.

    Its awesome... Is there a way to make it not reload when browsing the website?

    Looks nice. Are the prices on your site XF prices too?

    Any chance the reloading when switching pages will get worked on at some point? It's quite distracting. ;)

    I don't have a site. Envovle chat isn't mine. I just made the plugin so that envolve chat integrates with xenforo. These 2 are different products with different prices. And I can't do anything about reloading sorry, maybe someone with greater skills can, I don't know ...

    How is this different from CometChat? Looks the same to me.

    adin, this is cool. I hope envolve picks up support, I don't want to use unsupported stuff, and this looks very cool

    Installed, works nice but I can't set it up in spanish.

    I solved it adding this in <head>

    HTML:
    <meta name="gwt:property" content="locale=es">

    I wish we could experiment with this addon before installing it.

    I had this for a while....
    Don't use it unless you want your XenForo to become incredibly slow.
    I changed back to CometChat and suddenly the forum was sooo much faster.

    Are you using the cometchat addon server service? Or just the cometchat on your own server?

    Using the local Cometchat you can buy for $49, you can test it on my forums - it's really fast.

    It would be nice for the user to be able to disable the chat to speed up the site.

    Click on "... People Here" , then the gear icon on the top right, and you'll see the turn off menu.

    It would be nice an admin setting to set up the Chat turned off by default.
