I run Buzz50 which is a site for seniors over 50 and have tried other similar one to one chats before. This is the best.
The support from the Techjoomla team is fantastic, as others have mentioned on here. Take a look at their 'About Us' page and you will see a photo of the real people who will help you :)
I desided to buy JBolo (although there is not any kind of demo or trial, out there!?!)
because of this site (Joomla! Extensions Directory)
What I mean? I saw the reviews here and I felt safe because of JBolo owner's replies.
I realized that he was caring about his reputation.
So if JBolo was worthless I should "punished" him with a bad review.
And, unluckily, a wrong happened! I had to wait 24 hours to be able to download JBolo, after I purchased with my credit card!
I convinced myself to wait until the day after.
After I installed JBolo, I umderstood that my choice was excellent!
But that, that impressed me was the fantastic support!!!
Thank all of you guys (JBolo's team, people who did a review here and ofcourse Joomla! Extensions Directory).
My only suggestion... give a free download to peeps to demo the module, maybe only one chat a time or something so people get to try it...
Great work guys
- We don't receive/sent some messages in the chat.
- Messages must be always visible even when a user closes/opens a window. Noone would guess that he has to go to history to see older chat conversations.
- History should display users chat logs with top messages being the older and bottom being the newest.
- Chat window of a user remains active, even if we close it.
So summary is that sometimes the chat works, and sometimes it doesn't. Your choice.
Hi. Have you contacted our support to get these issues resolved ? From your description it seems there are some JS Conflicts on your site. JBolo's Heartbeat seems to be breaking on some pages due to which you might be having this issue. I suggest you contact support..
Some minor changes, that's it.
I think if there will be a bigger problem, their support could/should handle that.
We never need that so we cannot say anything about support speed and professionalism.
The 5 stars are a result of price, installation, configuration and ease of use.
Earlier I thought it conflicts, with yootheme wrap6 framework, hence i installed it on plain joomla 2.5x, it is still does not work.
Then I contacted support, provided admin account details, This is third day, and still problem exists.
Support can not be more pathetic than this.
Wasted my Time and Money. I dont know if i will even get refund.

- Can't see any member online
- There is a language issue with the status
Same with previous 1.7 Joomla releases. I used my paid support, but no solution yet. I even set up a testsite to help support nail the issue.
I think this module is becoming outdated and as I mentioned: buggy on my site that has no other major issues.
Answer to my request if JBolo is Joomla 1.7 ready was yes when I purchased...checking on other solutions right now! Wouldn't go for it again...
JBolo has been working on Joomla 1.7 since version 2.9.2. However since then, there were some issues reported on multi language sites when using Internet explorer.
These issues have been solved in the latest release 2.9.5. As of now there are no known problems with JBolo & Joomla 1.7 & its fully compatible with Joomla 1.7.X
The language issue with "status" is because you did not translate the 2 required files in other non-english language.
If you completely translate the 2 needed files , translation will work correctly with language filter plugin.
Which mobile browser did you check on ? If you are looking for native Mobile support, we are coming out with our own App soon. Right now, the IJoomer App supports Jbolo
