I'm looking for a web based chat thigy for my website. I already tried IRC, and didn't like it. I tried phpopenchat, but it wouldn't install.

So any other ideas?

(Yes, the server is running 7.04)

I use this one:

It's ajax based. Ajax is a very handy skill to learn for web development.

Neat little chat program, but I need one that offers basic administration.

What kind of administration?

Kind of like the enterprise version of this.

But it needs to be free.

In case you are wondering what it is for, the supervisors on wikianswers have group chats sometimes. We were using meebo, but a lot of people had problems with it. I also need to find something for live support. And logging is important.

That sounds perfect for IRC, really. Go register a channel and get yourself a bot to log..

Plus, it has full administration features

EDIT:

I already tried IRC, and didn't like it.


what's wrong with IRC?

Well my host just set up an IRC server, but couldn't get the administartion thing to work. I may try freenode. But if I go with IRC, I'll need some sort of java/flash thing that I can embed.

see mibbit.com, somewhere aruond there they have an embed thingy, but you could just use the site itself

Yeah, that's what I was using eriler. (b/c I can't use my ubuntu, so I had to use my mom's vista.)

Thanks for the help.

Consider this unsolved.

IRC is a pain in the butt. Being a channel op is not fun at all!

So does anybody have any other ideas? What I'm looking for is an ajax, administable, simple, web based, free, chat thigy.
