Mine doesn't. And I don't even see a "blue box" on that page. I've even tried disabling AdBlock. There's a link to a screenshot, a blue screenshot, and a link to vbulletin.com.

hrm...weird...thats what it says. I've seen this running on a board and it was really cool...can't for the life of me remember the board though! haha

Please note that BlaB! is NOT a module, NOR Add-on. It does NOT touch your bulletin board or CMS installation so that you can upgrade it easily and even switch BlaB! to work with another, e.g. you can remove phpBB and install vBulletin and by replacing 2 variables in blab/config.php, BlaB will recognize your vBulletin users the same way it did it with phpBB.

Okay, clearly you've misunderstood my question. I was wondering HOW it installs into vbulletin. The installation instructions. The quote you just gave is a teaser, but says nothing about how to install.

ahhh hahah

this is a little more complete

Installation + [phpBB, IPB, vBulletin]BlaB! + phpBB, Invision Board, vBulletin, Simple Machines, e107, exoops,
Mambo, phpNuke, postNuke, WBB2, PunBB




[target_script] - read this as phpBB, Invision Board, vBulletin,
Simple Machines, e107, exoops, Mambo, phpNuke, postNuke, WBB2 ,
PunBB depending on the script you are going to integrate BlaB! with...

1. Unzip the files from the ZIP archive in an empty directory keeping the
directory structure.

2. Open config.php by a text editor and set the following variables:
$db_user, $db_pass and $db_name.

Please make sure that $db_name is the database where [target_script] is installed!

3. Upload the whole directory (and all files/subdirectories in it) to your server
by an FTP program.

It is a good idea to upload BlaB! under the directory where [target_script] resides!

4. Load install.php in your web browser:
http://yoursite.com/target_script/blab/install.php and follow the instructions.

Remember to choose [target_script] from the drop-down menu...

5. Get your license key here and enter it in the provided input box.

6. Remove install.php and enter the chat.

Those sound like the instructions for their free Lite version. With no vbulletin integration, it's just a standalone app.

Unless their installer is smart enough to actually edit vbulletin files itself, which seems unlikely.

Well it pretty much is a stand alone app. It just reads off your database...

edit..then I'm sure they have your forum wrap around it..

The instructions are in a members only area which you get access too once you have brought the software. The integration is very very simple and the guides are very helpful.

addonchat was just installed on my forum, cost me $120 but only took about 3 minutes to install, very impressed so far, best thing is its hosted elsewhere so not eating my bandwidth either!

Let's not mislead. That's a yearly charge, not a one time charge.

i agree with the folks who are suggesting "Blab Chat"... in my opinion, it's the best PHP chat script out there... i've been using this script for the last 3 years.

They just released "Blab IM" and it's simply amazing script! i'm seriously thinking of upgrading to Blab IM Pro... it's just a nice piece of script!

You guys should try it! There's a demo and +

blabim seems interesting, but can it cope with 300 concurrent chatters?

i don't think any PHP/MYSQL script can cope with 300 concurrent users on a shared host...it's just too much.

If you have 300 users, then i suggest you go with either a JAVA chat application or ,even better, a hosting company that is managing all the server load for you, something like http://www.123flashchat.com/ ... be prepared to spend some money... this stuff is expensive.

Im not willing to use hosted chat. I would like to host it myself. Suggestions are more than welcome.
