Live Chat for Joomla 1.5

Create beautiful Joomla websites with a flexible layout from iJoomla.com

My previous version of the live chat plugin has been very popular. So I'm happy to announce that I'm releasing the version which is compatible Joomla 1.5 natively! This version contains a couple updates and one bug fix.

I'd like to thank Rajesh of bangalorespice.com for assisting me with this update.

You can download the new module here.

The following are the updates:

  • bug fixed – font size wasn't changing
  • module is now table-less, W3C compliant
  • module is now Joomla! 1.5 compatible

Of course, you still need to sign up for a free account at Chatango to use this.



  1. Fantastic piece of news, well done and keep up with the great work!

    The joomla 1.5 tutorial blog.

  2. hi, where do i paste the code that you provide? i have a joomla 1.5 site. i am a novice so the more details you can give me the better. thank you in advance, very exited to try your product.

  3. When I embed on rockettheme template versatility 4, other flash components and simple-image-rotator stops working. Is there a fix for this? Thankyou in advance.

  4. I have a question about your chat program. I installed it in less than 5 minutes. I successfully got an account with "Chatango" -> and the website recognised the Chantango program without a problem. (Communication was possible).

    However, in Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP, I noticed that the website is no longer recognised when I open a new window, and try to access the website. The issue of "not recognising" the website pertains only to the main page – where the chat sessions is available/viewable.

    In FireFox, there are no issues.

    Any suggestions?

  5. Nice software. Is there a way to show the online/offline status of the operator?

  6. Fab quick installation and works like a charm! Thank you for putting this out there

  7. not working for me in joomla 1.5.9. it messes up all of my pages, unless i publish it in certain positions such as the footer or syndicate or debug, but if i put it in the left or right position, it causes problems. not sure how to explain it.

  8. I'm having problems installing this module to jppnla 1.5.8 version, getting the following error message "Error! Could not find a Joomla! XML setup file in the package."

    Can someone help me please

  9. Very nice! It works well with 1.5.9 Legacy IF ALL modules are placed on the left. If I place the chat mod on the right the bottom/footer mod moves up and underneath it. If I place the chat mod on the left and other modes on the right all mods belonging on right shrink and show on the left with a blank area on the right. I like it, I want to keep it but HOW DO I FIX THIS PROBLEM?

  10. does anyone know a few internet proxies for school plz!!! tell me if you do!!!!!

  11. many thanks it a greet joomla module

  12. Is there a way to moderate incoming messages before they are published in the live chat?

  13. I can't instal the mod_chatango.zip module, when i instal that i have error like that :
    Error: Could not find a Joomla! XML setup file in the package

    I hope u have suggestions?

  14. Same problem for me, trying to installing mod_chatandgo on Joomla 1.5.8:

  17. Esta utilidad está genial, y además la facilidad como puede lograrse. En estos momentos me encuentro en mi sitio web intentando ubicar esta ventana de chat en un sitio específico!
    Gracias por el aporte

  18. Has the speed of Joomla improved with the new release.

  19. Al instalar el modulo aparece el siguiente mensaje:

    "¡Error! No puedo encontrar un archivo de configuración XML para Joomla! en el paquete."

    Tengo instalada la versión 1.5.14 y esta activado el plugin legado
    ¿que podría estar ocurriendo?

  20. I installed this module. and step two is install ChatangoInstaller.exe but
    I am using Linux ubantu , How i do this?

  21. I installed Joomla 1.5 with Fantastico to my website. However, I dont know how to make the site public. That was even before I installed a new template. Another problem is that after I installed the template, I tried to make it default but it tells me under 'Menu Assignment' that 'Cannot assign default template" and under 'Parameters' that 'The parameter file /templates/themza_j15_17/params.ini is unwritable!

    Please help me with some advice.

  22. I have installed the module but how to I tie it to a menu entry. I want it to appear under the Main menu. Some instructions will be useful

  23. All I can get from Chatango that Joomla! will load is the chat catchers. The Group chat requires direct html download and I have not figured out how to do that. Any help?

  24. For those of you with the "Error! Could not find a Joomla! XML setup file in the package.", the file mod_chatango.xml inside the zip file is the problem. Try changing the text-encoding to UTF-8 (no BOM) and Unix linebreaks using a text-editor capable of manipulating text-encoding.
