Reviews

Good initial release

I had absolutely no problem to start my tests with a chat on a sandbox BP installation after reading your support threads. The CSS you provide are not ideal in combination with the theme I’m using (BOSS), but that’s not something you have to care about. Later on I will do more tests and let you know what my thoughts are. Thanks for this plugin.

Excellent Support

I could not bring it to work, but that is for sure the problem of my site, as I am always one of the few where it not work. Why I give 5 Stars? Because the support takes really care. Once I get rid of my general problems on the site, I will definitely use it. Thank you for good work
