Installation/Upgrade
See included readme file.

Demo
You can see a demo here (You can can register a new account, or use the Login, "Ideal Chat Demo", and password, "chatdemo") This demo is of the pro version which can be found here!

Support
This modification is released for free, and as such we don't officially support it; however, as time permits we will try to offer support on it. We will NOT be monitoring this thread on a daily basis, your best bet for a fast reply would be to go post here.


Common Issues/Topics
Chat Bar Don't Show Up?
Have you configured the usergroup settings? This is the most common issue we see, and 99% of the time it is due to usergroup settings not being configured properly. So if your bar is not showing up, please verify your usergroup settings before reporting it as an issue.

Messages Don't Show Up?
We are aware of an issue causing messages to not show up for some people, and are looking into fixes.

Modification Has Conflict With Another Product
There is always a chance that two products will conflict with each other! We are aware of some, but please feel free to tell us about any products you find to conflict via our Bug Tracker on our site.

Chat Doesn't Support Certain Characters
The chat can only support the characters your board itself can support! If you would like to support certain characters, you must have your board using a charset that supports them. We have only ever once noticed a chat that didn't support every character the board did, and we are looking in it.

Chat Kills My Server
We have tested the chat extensively for server friendliness, and have found it to be very gentle on servers. We have seen the script run with hundreds of active users without putting hardly any load on the server. However, an improperly configured server may result in any reverse-AJAX/push-AJAX/Comet based chat script killing the server. If you find that your server slows down after installation, you may want to talk with your host about raising your MySQL and Apache Max Connection Limits to a more appropriate amount!

We have been running it on one of our live sites during almost the entire development phase, and we couldn't notice our site slowing any. We also monitored our server load regularly, and found it to not really even touch the server.

For a short time during the development, there was a bug that kept the connections from closing correctly, and at one point we had over a 100 copies running, and we didn't even notice for a while because our server load was so low, and our site was still loading normally. (Don't worry though, we fixed that bug!)

As for a paid version, you can find the pro version on our website in our store.

You run it on your own server.

The pro version has more features including support to parse bbcode, urls, smilies, and over 165 slash commands such as /me, /wave... It also has support to allow users to chat with admins.

We are also planning to build a chat room system into both versions in the next few days, and once that is done, the pro version won't have any limits on the number of rooms, or who can create rooms, etc., while the lite version will only have 1 general chat room most likely.

We're also open for any ideas people would like to see implemented!

You know what, your absolutely correct! We accidentally included the xml for the the pro versions usergroup settings.

I have fixed it now, if you don't see anything from the new file that's up, please let me know and I'll look into it more.

There was an xml file and phrase apparently missing in this one, I have added the new xml file, and I'm about to add the missing phrase, please give me a few minutes and then install it again.

http://www.extremegamezone.com/ is running the pro version, we don't have any running the lite at the moment.
