Trying to find a free chat to use with homestead across multiple platforms. I've spent way too much time trying to find one that works.

How to add a chat forum to my homestead website?.


How can I add a chat forum to my website? Any third party apps that work well with homestead sites? Was thinking that adding Authpro might work but can't tell if that allows for a free chat forum for users or if it would require all users to pay to use it. My end goal is to have a homestead site with my content and a forum site link on it so that it looks like the forum part is part of the homestead site and then also a paid member area set up with authpro. My main traffic would come from the interest in the chat forum. I expect that I may need 2 third party apps to achieve this and that is fine. I just need them to be in the same price range as homestead and authpro. Any recommendations?
Have you tried Pure Chat? I havent tried it on homestead but its a SIMPLE platform and worked great on my weebly site.

Thanks for the tip. I'll check it out. I'd like a chat feature that I could use on my cell phone. I found Live Chat but I have a Samsung Galaxy and the only one I can find only works with IPhones. Ok. Thanks again, I'm looking into it now!

A desktop feature I miss in Plus.


The Chat room was great. With the nature of my site it helped a lot, and now I have to rely on third party free chat boxes i import with html, but they are never reliable and I have been through a few.

A silly one that I really liked was the hit counter. When I transferred my site earlier this year I lost the one I put in in 09 or 10, and there was no replacement because it had been removed. This didn't effect as much as the chat room but it was just something I personally miss.

I can't come up with others at the moment, these are just the two that happened over the last few years.

How about giving your users a nice 'live chat' button to interact with people on our sites?

i'm looking into the name brand "live chat" but I don't see that you can also have the chat request go to your cell phone

We currently do not have one, but if you do a Google search you'll find many options most of which easily integrate by copying and pasting code into your site.

Thanks for the suggestion Not exactly what I wanted, which is a chat box on the site, like the one H used to have. mylivechat good solution for customer support since you have to be logged into a mylivechat console. I've used these as a customer. I have accts with 4 providers now. I may give up.
