AddonChat Chat Bar
Launch Icon & Chat Bar
AddonChat is built to be placed on any (or every) page on your site. As your users move from page to page on your site, their chat session automatically resumes with all windows in their original position.
It all begins with the Launch Icon, a small unobtrusive icon typically placed in the lower right corner of your page. Clicking the icon will open the sign-in window or show/hide the chat bar if the user is already signed in.
The Chat Bar allows your users to easily find other users currently online, search for users offline, send & receive friend requests, edit their own user profile, view user profiles, send instant messages and join chat rooms.
Both the launch icon and chat bar are fully customizable.
AddonChat Chat Room
Simultaneous Multi-Room & IM Participation
AddonChat makes it easy for your users to participate in multiple chat room and instant message sessions simultaneously. Each instant message session and chat room appear in its own window which may be resized and dragged anywhere on your page.
As your users browse your site, their chat and instant message windows automatically resume and are positioned in the exact same place they were at on the previos page- all in under a second!
AddonChat Multimedia Chat Rooms
Enhanced Multimedia Support
AddonChat allows users to easily post images, audio, and video content within your chat room.
When posted alone, image links will appear as clickable thumbnails directly in the chat room, while images posted within a message containing other content will provide a thumbnail image when the user hovers their mouse.
Multimedia (audio & video) content can be clicked to view in a separate, resizable window without having to leave your site.
In addition to the common web based audio & video formats (WebM, MP4, MP3, Ogg, 3gp, WAV, Opus, AAC, etc.) AddonChat also provides built-in support for viewing videos from: YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Vine, Twitch, LiveLeak, and USTREAM.
A built-in viewer for Flash Video (FLV) and Shockwave Flash (SWF) is also included allowing you to easily stream multimedia or incorporate Flash content.
AddonChat Instant Message Window

Instant Messaging

AddonChat allows your users to chat with one another privately in real-time using an instant messaging format that is familiar and easy to use. Users can send IMs to offline users and scroll back to view past messages.
As with chat rooms, Instant Messages provide full support for spell check, Emoji, custom emoticons, and advanced Content Replacement. Instant Messaging can also be enabled or disabled on a per-User Privilege basis.
Facebook Logo AddonChat Sign-in Window
Facebook Integration
AddonChat supports Facebook Integration enabling your users to sign-in using their Facebook accounts, including importing their basic profile data and profile image.
We've already found that using HTML5 chat software such as AddonChat over a Java or Flash based solution can increase your chat room's popularity by as much as 50%, giving your users the ability to sign-in using their Facebook account can increase this an additional 25-30%!
AddonChat Settings Panel
Settings Panel
Access the Settings Panel from within the Chat Software to fully customize your look & feel, edit your users, and rooms, and much, much more- all in real time!
Integration & Site Authentication
While AddonChat is easily customized to match the look & feel of your own web site, it is also easily integrated into any existing web platform.
Use Link Code Parameters to automatically sign users in using the same username and ID they use on your own web site, forum, blog, or CMS software. Link Codes are explained in detail in your Settings Panel, and make it a breeze to give your users a seamless, SSO (Single Sign-on) experience!
Take it to the next level with SSAX Single Site Authentication. SSAX works by calling a simple script that resides on your own server and calls your own database when a user signs-in to AddonChat. Your server then decides whether or not the calling user is permitted access and to which privilege level that user is assigned. A detailed example can be found in your Settings Panel.

Extreme Customization
Yes, the Settings Panel provides hundreds of easy to configure features allowing you to get up and running with AddonChat in a matter of minutes, but two very special features set us apart from the competition allowing you to take your extreme customization to the next level:
Content Replacement Engine
The Content Replacement Engine is a powerful, easy to use system allowing you to replace message fragments (words, phrases, etc.) entered in your chat and I.M. sessions with the content of your choice. Use it to create custom emoticons, insert images, replace profane words, or use HTML markup to insert context-based ads or related links.
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets)
Advanced users may edit their own CSS code within the Settings Panel to take customization to extreme levels. Examples are provided within the Settings Panel. The possibilities are limitless!
