The chatroom feature is a paid for chat.

Same goes if you want to customise the chat too.

Looks like a great idea, real nice.

But I guess some Terms of use are more than worthy to add to the mod description as well and there is no real explaining of the relation between the needed additional software and the mod provided here.

So it's maybe good to take a good look at codologic.com as well. Not sure about the SMF policy in such matters.

Quote from: from the Frequently Asked QuestionsAre future updates free?

Every purchase of FreiChat comes with 6 months free updates. Updates after that can be purchased at a discount price.

Sales
Is FreiChat a one-time fee?

The purchase of FreiChat is a one-time cost. There are no monthly or yearly costs involved. Support and updates are provided free of cost for 6 months.

Can I upgrade to a feature at a later stage?

Yes, you can always upgrade by paying the difference.

What is your refund policy?

We can only provide refunds in the case that FreiChat cannot be properly installed on your server. This means that both you and our staff are unable to install FreiChat.

Hm, supposedly Freichat offers a SMF plugin; when you install it you get the option to download it, but leads to a 404...?

Very slowly, I have a large community. There are too many requests to my server after enable this mod. I may think about XMPP chat solutions.

No , it is not. It comes along with the free version .

Why don't  you have a look at the demo ? Its much better than a simple screenshot .

Ive install for testing, and now want to remove. what should i do after i uninstall the SMF package? delete the freichat directory and...?

hm32s

Hi,

For removing everything related to freichat :

1. Uninstall/remove the freichat SMF package.
2. Delete all frei_* tables [You can get the list of freichat tables from freichat/installation/install.sql]
3. Delete the freichat directory .

But basically removing the smf package should be enough.

Spend the day trying to get this to work.  Nothing.  Nada.  After numerous installs and re-installs, no chat window anywhere.   I see the php code, I see the database entries, just does not work.

I figure it's scamware.  Pay money if you want a version that might work.

Welcome to SMF.

I am sorry that you are having some trouble. Did you install freichat first, per the mod instructions?

Yes.  I also found that everything in the index.template.php after around line 200 was missing, so just opening and saving that file gave me a parse error. I made a fresh install and copied the code across (Prior admins on the site had installed packages previously which may have modified the file, so I didn't replace it in it's entirety. I made sure there were no errors in that file before installing freichat and the mod. It was during an attempt to manually add the mod that I noticed the truncated file.

Hi,

If you are having any trouble installing freichat please consider posting in our forums on our website , because we do not regularly check
replies here .

QuoteYes.  I also found that everything in the index.template.php after around line 200 was missing

The mod makes changes to the sourcedir/Load.php file , so it should not be related to freichat .
If you can provide us with your website address + test account , we may be able to identify your problem .

Couple of things after installing the free version
1. In the chat room how can I disable avatars? I got it to work in regular person to person chat but not the chat rooms
2. Where can the user disable if they don't want to participate in chat or see the chat boxes? EDIT - found the way to turn off the chat for that single instance. How can offline be set permanently? Some users love it others just want it blocked.

access to this resource is denied...??

is it:

/freichat/installation/

or is it:

/freichat/installation/install.php  ?

permissions are 777 - tried changing all to 755 but nothing?

thanks in advance
