BlaB! Plus vs BlaB! Pro

System requirements

In order to run BlaB! 8 Plus/Pro you need:

Integration with Bulletin Boards and CMS
The pic above is a board profile shown in chat.

Currently BlaB! 8 Plus/Pro can be integrated with:

People registered and logged onto your bulletin board or CMS enter the chat with their usernames directly, without a login prompt. When bulletin board or CMS users enter the chat, their profiles look like the one in the image above. Note that all info including avatar, usergroup etc is taken from a phpBB profile.

BlaB! 8 Plus/Pro is NOT a module, NOR Add-on. It does NOT touch your Board/CMS installation so that you can upgrade it easily and even switch BlaB! 8 Plus/Pro to work with another, e.g. you can remove phpBB and install vBulletin and by replacing a couple of variables, BlaB! 8 Plus/Pro will recognize your vBulletin users the same way it did it with phpBB.

The registration/login part of BlaB! Plus/Pro still exists. It depends on your settings whether people are allowed to register new BlaB! accounts. You can import user groups from your bulletin board or CMS so that moderators are moderators in chat, those who are banned are not allowed to send chat messages etc etc.

If you need to integrate BlaB! Plus/Pro with a bulletin board or content management system that is not in the list above please contact us including as many details as possible. The integration (if possible!) is free of charge for our customers.
