Seems like a great product. I've purchased several "nice ideas" from Techjoomla. We have a professional site and overall the concepts have been in-line with what we wanted to accomplish. we've purchased at least 3 modules and support doesn't exist so you have to make the modules work on your own.

Mine is a small-but-growing community site for foreigners in Nanjing China. For us, chat is not a main feature, but rather a small enhancement, of the overall ‘social networking’ dynamic that we are trying to build upon.

Enter jBolo. Installation is a breeze: I installed the component, a module, and 2 plugins. To test, I opened up one browser in Safari, one in Firefox, and logged in as two different users in each window. Wow! It works right out of the box, with a look and feel very similar to Gmail and Facebook chat.

Great component and a very reasonable price. Well done!

Have you ever been logged in to your site and noticed that a friend of yours was logged in as well...ever wanted to get their attention? This add-on is awesome. Displays who is online, with the click of a button you can send them a message no matter what page of your site they are on (even if there on a page where the chat isn't displayed). This app is very much worth every penny! I would recommend this app to everyone!

The only suggestion I would have to make to the authors, it would be great if you would add a "send" button to the bottom of the chat window.
A few times I have run in to a problem when I press the enter key and it drops to the next line instead of actually sending the message. (IE & FireFox). It happens on such a rare occasion though its not really a problem.

Suggestion noted & added to feature tracker. We'll try to get a send button in & reproduce the issue you have reported.

Thanks !

I have tried a couple other simple chat extensions for my site and this one works the best. It's great for a site where chatting isn't the main reason people come to the site. Mainly because the chat is on every page if some one starts talking to you. Along the same lines as gmail chat and the chat on facebook. The support was awesome. Unlike so many other components, this one's author provides excellent support. Money well spent.
