    Hello Daniel,

    Thank you for reporting bug.

    Hi Nellie,

    I am able to see chat bar at your site. Try to load page multiple times and see if this will work for you.

    After installation in Moodle chat 2.9.1 does not appear, and the plugin asks to be updated. Plugin "Get Key" I understand, too, your, it is only possible to delete via FTP? The settings of both plugins are not served (no buttons).

    Try to update latest version and then enable it from Site administration -> Vm chat to make it appear.
    Both plugins can be uninstalled via interface. Since Vmchat depends on Get key, so first you need to uninstall vmchat then uninstall link for Get key will automatically appear.

    With the removal of plugins figured out, but the latest version of your plugin does not work on Moodle 2.9.1. the plugin offers download a newer version, if not download the chat window, I just don't see

    Hello! Nice plugin which works pretty well at a reasonable speed! But I still have the problem that the plugin announces itself as able to be updated but is already at the latest version.
    This is the update information:
    There is a new version 2015082500 available!
    Release 1.2.3 (Build: 2015082500)
    This is the information about the installed version:
    2014111301 1.2.3 (Build: 2015082500)
    Best regards,

    I have just installed it on my Moodle 2.9.2 system. I am blown away by it's simplicity and usefulness! Thank you for ramping up the cool-factor on my Moodle site by 10x!

    The *coolest* thing is this feature of VM Chat: Other than the Common chat window, if you tap or click on an Online User's pic or name in the Online Users list, a private char window appears at the bottom! Ideal for one-one-one chats. I am running this on my iPad and I can open 4 window at the bottom of the page. The Common Chat, two private chat windows and the main Online Users window. Coolest thing evah!!!!

    Hi Jai Gupta and Pinky Sharma. I did notice that when I change screens, the Common chat window's contents remain. However the same cannot be said of the private chat contents - they reset to blank at every screen refresh or if I surf to another page on my Moodle site. Even if I were to minimise a private chat window prior to clicking on a new page link (which brings about a page refresh), the private chat window resets to blank contents. I suppose this is the limitation of the private chat window - in that it cannot retain its contents from page/screen to page/screen. Perhaps in the next version then...(?).

    Hello Frankie,
    I believe you are using ipad. Vmchat is not fully compatible with ipad.
    We have created an issue( for it and try to fix in next release.
