In short, great product if you have no other components. Support is NOT helpful in my case so I had to unload jBolo and find another product that plays with other components.
Normally we do try to help you find what conflicts. Why dont you add a ticket with access details, & we'll get it checked & fixed for you.. If its a issue with another extension however, what we do is identify which one is that.. & try to propose a solution for it..
If you don't mind your "users online" information to be inaccurate and inflated and don't mind that your users will think their friends are on line and available to chat even when they really aren't, then this chat software is wonderful, easy-to-install, and works great. I WOULD give it excellent if not for this issue, as it is it is hard for me to give it an average rating.
Ah ! I think our support team might have misinterpreted your request ! I see what you mean. We will get this fixed in the upcoming versions :)
Hi, Thanks a lot for your feedback. We have added this feature to our feature tracker & shall be adding it in the next major update.
I spent looking for some time there to a demo download link but couldn't find it. At least not for this product. I figure it's a buy before you try product then ;-)
I'm sure it's great, but I will never know.
I am not sure why you faced this issue. The link to the Page : http://techjoomla.com/jbolo-chat-for-joomla.html Takes you to our product landing page for JBolo. We sell products as subscriptions & do not encode they . They are GPL.. so there is no trial version available. You can see there are links to demos for Joomla, CB & JomSocial on that page.
Hopefully the developers will add in some other options as time goes by, but overall, this is well worth investing in.
Ran into one conflict with Safari browser and these guys busted their butt helping me get it taken care of. Not even sure it was something that should have been supported. Thanks for this great extension and all your help!
I checked up your tickets. I see there was some issue.. But all your tickets seem to be holding on "Requires Feedback" . So some input from you in needed on them. There was some issue in the ticket system after we upgraded it due to which a ticket was closed. But none of the other tickets were closed they were replied to changing their status to "Requires Feedback". If you login & see you should see them.
Your ticket was marked resolved due to a system mistake. You will see there are instructions to upgrade in the documentation FAQs : http://techjoomla.com/documentation-for-jbolo/jbolo-faqs.html
JBolo Supports sound notifications as well as blinking.. If there is any issue please add a ticket & we'll solve it for you..
i use mighty touch on my website (+250000 visitors /month) and integration with mighty touch is really poor so i asked to cometchat team to create an integration (coming soon)
I am not sure what you mean by Poor integration. JBolo supports mighty touch very well & supports chat lists with mighty touch friends.. If you need further integration, we need to know in what way ! We really appreciate feedback & would love to know what you mean by this..
1) The chat, while it does "work", is erratic. Sometimes you get the message, sometimes you don't"
2) The FB bar does NOT load in IE7 or below, or in compatibility mode in IE8.
3) MORE problems when you integrate CB Superactivity module: Blank screens, problems loading, etc.
I contacted TechJoomla, and they sent me ONE email, vaguely asking for logins. I responded asking WHAT logins?..and haven't heard back.
IF, they can get these things worked this will be an outstanding advantage to any site. But that is a big "IF".
Warm Regards, Dave
I cant start a support discussion here.. But i will try to clarify what i can.
1. The first issue is most likely due to a JS conflict with either the template or some other extension on your site. This can be fixed either by checking the settings for force load jquery & no conflict settings in the module. If that does not solve it, to contact support so that they can provide a alternative version that is available if your site needs it.
2. This is not a known issue & has been tested with several different templates. Again can be related to where you publish it.. Have you tried publishing it in the debug position ?
3. This issue should not be related to JBolo as we are simply loading the module ( Super activity ) in the JBolo bar.. But we'll take it up with them.
I am sorry if our support team was not more specific . We usually need the Joomla admin access to check. We shall be more careful in the future.
Once again, i am sure we can get the issues solved on your site. I have checked with the team & your ticket has been replied asking for the above access. Our site was having some issues from Thursday till Saturday.. So if you have not got a notification, please add a reply with your admin access. We'll get it fixed for you !
If you compare with 123 Web Messenger, who charge minimum $199, and this on a yearly basis to still limit you to 50 users, then I think the price of $30 is very reasonable as a one-time fee with no user limit at all!
I've installed it, and it works like a charm! My sincere thanks to the developers of jBolo to offer this at a reasonable price, please continue to do so!
A few small remarks:
- The chat does not always display when a user has gone offline
- Additional icons on the bar for CB users would be nice for in the future, like is already available for JomSocial users.
To me, these are just minor remarks that won't stop me from using and purchasing this extension. If you're looking for a Facebook-like chatbar or a Gmail-like chat, this is exactly that!
