Installation is as easy as: (detailed instructions)
We have an unusual setup on our site. We have a standalone application connected with WPMU (buddyPress) installed in a subfolder. Because of this we really needed CometChat to customize things for us.
Our site is very busy, with over 12 thousand registered users so I was glad they were able to get everything running without taking my site offline or messing up with my users experience.
I offered to help by getting my hands on the code but the CometChat team took charge and fixed everything themselves. Whenever I found an error, I relayed it over to them, they then logged back into my server, made the changes and wrote me back letting me know the error had been fixed.
My users have already started using the chat and are loving it. I highly recommend this. Such a low price for such high value.
