Dear EE experts,

We would like to ask for tech support on how to have a Live Chat online for our website?
Something like in most websites nowadays, you can click the 'Live Chat' icon/image, then you as a guest can chat with the internal staff of that site...

Thank you & hope to hear soon...

If you are looking for the paid option then you can use LivePerson http://www.liveperson.com/products-services/lp-chat

If you want opensource solution then you can use Openfire server. This is a java based free server that comes with SparkWeb flex application that can integrate with your web pages.

Hi there jchittoda1! For the Openfire, is it the same as the LivePerson 'lp-chat'?

Because we don't want to show users on the chat lists...

Openfire has a plugin called "Fashpath WebChat" that does the similar thing that you are looking for. For more information related to the plugins you can visit http://www.igniterealtime.org/projects/openfire/plugins.jsp
