Technical Checklist...

This module is a simple person-to-person chat and messaging system. It adds another way of communication for your members. The main goal of this way is simplicity.

As a messaging system it allows members to send messages to other members very easily even without leaving their profile page. And as a chat it keeps the full history of all chats of a member and also it allows to converse very quickly and easily.

Here is the list of the main module's features:
  • All chats are ordered by the time of last message (newest first)

  • Chats which are having unread messages are marked with color (green)

  • Chat page uses AJAX updates so no page reload required to see new messages

  • All new messages are marked by "New" icon when received

  • Chat body is located in a scrollable block thus keeping the page's height constant

  • Messages could be sent by hitting the Ctrl+Enter combination thus allowing to send messages even faster

  • Keeps all chats history

  • Allows to clear the entire chat history or delete a particular message only

  • Notifies about new messages in a small popup window + a notification number of new chats in member menu

  • Keeps a list of latest chats in a member menu block

  • Provides an ability to send a message directly from a profile view page or any other page which displays profile's icon/avatar without leaving the page

  • Automatically makes all links in the message clickable

  • Allows to send messages to offline members

  • Pays respect to privacy settings set in our Contact Privacy module

  • Integrated with Dolphin's membership levels system. Thus the ability to send messages can be fully controlled via membership levels settings.

  • Sound notification upon receiving a new message in chat window

  • Sound notification upon receiving a popup notification about a new message even when not in chat

The features listed above are the same the Simple Chat V1 is having.

The following list of features describes the Simple Chat 2.0 only:
  • Provides a lot of admin controllable settings

  • Shows a link to video messenger (if the module is installed) in chat window. Thus provides an easy way for the members to switch to the Dolphin's video chat.

  • Allows to choose between two different keyboard shortcuts for sending messages Ctrl+Enter or just Enter (in this case Ctrl+Enter adds a line break)

  • The module respects block lists now, i.e. a member which is being blocked is unable to contact a person who blocked him

  • Automatically cleans up the database from an old messages

  • Provides an automatic replacement filter which replaces the selected words with an asterisks [*]

  • Sends out notifications to members who received a message in chat while being offline.

  • Allows to open chat in a popup window

  • Allows to use smiles. On top of this smiles can be easily replaced/added simply by uploading smiles' images (gif files) to a module's folder.

  • Makes a popup window blinking in a taskbar upon receiving a new message.

  • NEW Automaticlly converts youtube links into embed videos.

  • NEW Allows to easily share pictures (including animated GIFs).

  • NEW Allows to automatically downscale shared pictures.

Nice work for this version 2.0, it is well worth the price difference compared to version 1.0. The idea of ​​sending one notification with a delay of 30 minutes which includes the list of members who have written messages is a great + + +! Boonex should draw inspiration for all notifications of dolphin! Private chat was the wrong item, with this module, it is now the highlight of my site! Anton thank you, once again, you've done the entire work!
You are welcome and thank you for the review! We greatly appreciate your opinion!
Bought this mod and its one of those mods that its just a must have for your members. Great Job!!
Nice mode.
Good support.
"there is no option to integrate it w/mobile app" - (quoted supporter)
- RU language (and any other as well) file has to be polish by hands
- need to fix bugs if site is installed in subdirectory

My score : 9 from 10 - means good offer, buy :)
All of our modules come with only English language out of the box. There is no way for us to provide a professional translation for every possible language.
Subdirectory bugs are also all fixed and the package updated.
Thanks for the review.
very good useful module. of price is also ok.
simply chat does not sound good. Should better my private chat to be written.
Thank you for the review and your suggestion.
We greatly appreciate it.
Best product out there for chat!!!!!! Beautiful work!!! Wish i could give 2 thumbs up!!
awesome, very useful module and I can highly recommend this module for any site that requires a simple chat messaging system, IMO this module and chat system is better than boonex default system!
Thanks! We greatly appreciate your opinion!
Great module, just what we needed! Remember to buy the spy module as well We had a couple of challenges with this and the spy module combined with some questions. They were all answered within a very short time and resolved. AntonLV is a A+ developer!
Thank you! We greatly appreciate your opinion!
