Best chat room for a vbulletin 5 forum

Something that may be integrated at least to the point where forum registration is required to be a member of the chat room.

I have shoutbox right on my vb5 but it's buggy and pretty primitive.

Does dbtech chatbox work perfectly with vb 5.2.1 because I am having problems with vbshout
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...&postcount=412
and vb Advanced Post Thanks
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...&postcount=124
on 5.2.1 such that I'm not that convinced of DB Tech's abilities to work with 5.2.1

Or by Dbtech chatbox, are you simply referring to the same shoutbox that I already have?

Best chatroom for a forum in general? None. Shoutboxes kill forum discussion.

There are some exceptions though such as gaming forums.
If I were to disable the chatbox on my forum, I would definitely get less visitors.

Besides that, I agree.

vbshout has had a positive impact on my forum in that people just use it occasionally to send messages to admin not much else. They think it is cool. It certainly has not affected traffic negatively.

I'd like to try a real chat room though.

An alternative option would be CometChat: https://www.cometchat.com/vbulletin-chat
I don't know if it will work with vBulletin 5 though.

I've never use CometChat personally but one of my vB5 clients use it.

http://www.texasfbt.com/

It has also a mobile app that integrates with vB5.

I corrected the placement of vbshout on my forum to place it near the top. Now, it works fine and gets the job done, although any modifications - the vbshout CP does not function. The DbTech guy is working on a fix.

I use ProChatRooms though it isn't mobile friendly. It is ideal for my site.

dbtech vbshout has been working okay. It is really more of a shoutbox than a chat, but it works.

fwiw arrowchat fixed their instructions so the script works at least now...
compared to cometchat it comes across as looking lighter, without loosing functions i want...i like the apps better too on arrow but...
i am a little conflicted between cometchat and arrowchat for one other reason is cometchat allows APE self hosted push but arrowchat makes you push thru others...

if you want professional and dont mind old 90's style looks, go with Volano. or if you want beauty but crappy functionality, i'd recommend the html5 123flashchat
