What is it? In short, Chatter2Go is a stand-alone version of our popular
chatterbox service. You can see a sample in the
sidebar of this page.
So what's the difference? Well, Chatter2Go is a downloadable PHP script, that
you install on your own server. This means you are no longer dependent on the
flooble servers for running your page's chat script. While we try our best to
have chatterbox up all the time, outages do happen, and then, our members pages
can appear slow or broken. This is not an issue with Chatter2Go.
Because it lives on your server, it would still keep working if flooble went down for
Additionally, if you use Chatter2Go, your visitors will not be shown any ads.
Advertising is a neccessary evil that helps us pay the cost of running a free chatterbox
service, but since Chatter2Go uses your resources and costs us little, we will
not make ads appear on your pages.
Chatter2Go is currently in beta development, and will be adding features on a
regular basis. Unlike regular chatterbox, it will be up to you to keep current
with the latest release of Chatter2Go.
Chatter2Go requires PHP to run, but needs no database, as it stores its data inside of a
text file. PHP scripting is provided by most webhosting companies, so if you pay for your
hosting, you can probably use PHP scripts. (If you are not sure, please ask your
web hosting provider of your account includes PHP support.
