Best Live Chat Plugins for WordPress (based on reviews)

The other night, while looking for a live chat / live support solution for my wife’s new website, I managed to find a mountain of very similar plugins. As with most people in this situation, I decided to go with who had the best reviews. The total quantity of reviews doesn’t matter to me, it’s more about the average sentiment of all the reviews that counts. I.e. How many people actually love the plugin.

myScoop’s first WordPress Plugin – “myScoop Rank Display”

Its been quite some time that I’ve been wanting to develop a WordPress widget for myScoop users. I have finally put something together. Once activated, this plugin will let you be able to select a Widget to display on your blog. This Widget will automatically connect to myScoop and display your blogs rank history for the past 14 days.

Its been quite some time that I’ve been wanting to develop a WordPress widget for myScoop users. I have finally put something together. Once activated, this plugin will let you be able to select a Widget to display on your blog. This Widget will automatically connect to myScoop and display your blogs rank history for the past 14 days.

Some background information:

  • The plugin comes packaged with the source for Open Flash charts.
  • The widget connects to myScoop to retrieve a data file and displays information relevant to your DOMAIN.
  • This could potentially be a very processor-intensive widget for myScoop (not your blog). Therefore I am looking at creating a cache file with your blog’s rank information for less server stress and quicker display on your side. This will be available in the next version.
  • There are currently no configurable settings for this widget. Simply install and activate – Once activated the widget will be available for use.
  • In future versions I would like to let the user be able to select whether or not they would like to display the graph or their current rank within myScoop.

Before officially releasing this I would need to do some testing and stability checks. Are there any bloggers that would be willing to help with this? All I would need from you is to install the plugin and give me feedback on any bugs or errors that you find, as well as any suggestions.
