Starting a blog is a great way to build and grow a community. But in order for your site to grow, you are going to have to provide your visitors with tools they would need to engage others. Hosting a chat room on your website is one way to do that. You won’t need an expensive web software to implement this feature on your site though. Quick Chat is a cool plugin that adds this feature to your website.
Don’t let the name fool you. The app may add chat functionality to your site quickly but it is sophisticated. It supports chat rooms, words filtering, emoticons, user list, translation, and a whole lot more. You have a number of security and filtering settings you can play with to keep your chat rooms clean. This plugin does use your WordPress database so make sure your web host can handle it.
Quick Chat is easy to implement. Just install the plugin and add the following code to where you want your chat room to show up. The rest is taken care of by this plugin.
