Before you install Quick Chat please check is you web server sufficiently capable to support number of users you expect visiting your chat at the same time.
From my experience most of time Quick Chat isn’t working due to old j Query library version being loaded by your Word Press theme or some other miss-behaving Word Press plugin.
PHP caching compatibility is achieved using AJAX to load and operate chat.
You can replace “400” with wanted Quick Chat message history window height and ‘default’ with your chat room name.
Default values are optimal so please don’t go overboard with making them much lower.To initiate private chat with another chat user click his chat user name on the list of chat users.Simultaneously you can have multiple one on one private chat sessions.For this feature to work you need modern HTML5 audio tag enabled browser like Mozilla Firefox 3.5 , Google Chrome 6 , Opera 10.5 or Internet Explorer 9 (IE works but not recommended). You just replace “message-sound.mp3”, “message-sound.ogg” and “message-sound.wav” from your “wp-content/plugins/quick-chat/sounds” directory with your own message notification sound files.Three sound file types are necessary because not all HTML5 audio tag enabled browsers support all audio file formats.You can test this by changing your theme and/or disabling other plugins one by one until you find the one that conflicts with Quick Chat.Then you can report your findings to me and if I have some spare time I will do all I can to provide workaround. This one is hard to track down and and even harder to resolve especially if you are on shared hosting. You can find someone who knows thing or two about Word Press plugin development. Note that because of added support for local avatar plugins existing messages will not have their authors avatar set.You should periodically clean those to keep Quick Chat database sparkling clean (preferably when no private chat sessions are in progress).Quick Chat is using Quick Flag Word Press plugin to resolve IP address to country flag so to enable this feature you must install and activate Quick Flag plugin.[quick-chat height=”400″ room=”default” userlist=”1″ userlist_position=”left” smilies=”1″ send_button=”0″ loggedin_visible=”1″ guests_visible=”1″ avatars=”1″ counter=”1″] Shortcode attributes details: Caching plugin support is tested with WP Super Cache and W3 Total Cache and my custom caching solution where Quick Chat automatically clears cache when necessary.If you use some other caching plugin you should manually clear cache every time you change any of quick chat options, modify shortcode, sidebar widget options or similar.
