    Hi Guys. The plugin you recommend doesn't seem to work with the latest release of WordPress – at least for me nothing appears on the dashboard menu. Can you recommend a different chat room plugin that will do the same job?  Many thanks for all the helpful videos.

    yea this doesn't work for the current version also sucks that you can't edit the page or just add the chat room to a page but it has to be a page on itself

    This is close to what I'm looking for but maybe you can help me out on something a bit more. I want to start a site for this youtube channel involving travel and kids stuff. I'd like people to be able to select a name without signing up to anything. Just choose a name and start typing. Then, I'd like them to be able to post video and pictures up to a specified size limit. Those photos and videos need to be auto-removed after 30 minutes or a specified time.

    Does anyone know of a chat client like this?
