I know gabbly isn't really associated with BikeForums and it is very unreliable, so I was wondering what the chances were that you could install a chat similar to the one used here (http://www.trianglecycling.com/)? A lot of us like to chat in the evenings and gabbly is so useless at times. Could you please look into this??????????? Pretty Please??? :)
Thanks - wolfpack

Once upon a time, someone mentioned IRC... It's looking pretty good to me.

well, i looked at that briefly, but it seemed like you had to purchase some sort of license; i can look again tho....to add a chat function shouldn't be that hard. seems BF is using vbulletin for the forum software and adding a chat function, should, i think be simple....

There's always Peekko Chat (Do a google search). It sets a chatroom for any site you are on for anyone with the Peekko software in. Free as well.
I don't have an account on that site, so I couldn't log into the chat. But I'll go ahead and see if that's an option for us.

It's actually a user software driven chat. No installs needed for BF, instead, it gets DL'ed on the members 'puter. I've never had any security issues from it, either. :D

I'll check that out Tom. I didn't do a search before I posted (I know:)), and I see that this has been mentioned many times before and some of the issues I can understand. There's a few people (prolly anywhere from 10-15) who use gabbly on a regular basis and it's just very frustrating to use.
I used yahoo messenger last night with a few. It will work...
