Community PRO 3.1.3 solves an issue introduced in 3.1.2 which prevents the plugin’s permissions table from being populated. It only affected new installations, it did not affect upgrades. If you’ve installed 3.1.2 and have the issue, here’s how to solve it: Deactivate the Community PRO 3.1.2 plugin Overwrite all 3.1.2 files in wp-content/plugins/avchat-3-pro with the ones from the 3.1.3 archive (only insert_tables.php and avchat3.php changed) Drop/delete the community_pro_permissions and  community_pro_general_settings MySQL tables Activate Community PRO 3.1.3

Our Community PRO plugin for WordPress just got a small bugfix update. Here’s what’s fixed: Removed some line breaks in the source code which caused AVChat to show up lower on the page than were embedded AVChat now has a transparent background when embedded in a page or post (transparent background was mistakenly removed in 3.1.1) AVChat’s enableModeratorForRooms, usersCanInviteToViewCam and usersCanInviteToRoom options were always disabled regardless of the permissions set in WP’s backend Removed Ignore PMs permission linked to AVChat’s showIgnorePMsButton  since it’s not supported by AVChat anymore

Side menu entry is now Community PRO to avoid confusions Plugin now supports different wp-content folders (wp-content folder name was hardcoded) Fixed issue with Ultimate Member plugin breaking avatars in AVChat We’re now using the wp_get_current_user() function instead of the deprecated get_currentuserinfo() Improved security around accessing the admin area[…]

Pay Per Session - active session

Hello everyone, We are actively improving our software based on your suggestions and over the past few months we have been very busy building solutions on top of AVChat. Requested by many of you, today we are happy to announce the launch of our NEW Pay Per Session plugin for WordPress. While in the past we have tried our best to cover this topic by writing articles such as How to Build a Paid Video Chat Membership Website with WordPress, AVChat 3 and PayPal these solutions relied on third party plugins and left our clients with alot of setting up to do. We were not satisfied with such complex solutions and we always felt we could do much better. So, with our new plugin you can forget[…]

Hello! I’m Lucian and I’m now responsible for integrating AVChat with WordPress and all other CMS’ AVChat integrates with. I have recently taken on the task from Radu. We decided to start the year with a huge overhaul for our WordPress video chat plugins. We took a good look at the highest rated WordPress plugins and made a promise to reflect things we’ve seen and loved into our own plugins. Therefore, we present you with two major upgrades that will ease the AVChat administration and give your WordPress website users and admins a much better experience: Video Chat Plugin Standard for WordPress, version 2.0 Video Chat Plugin PRO for WordPress, version 3.0 The Standard plugin can be downloaded for free from or from your own WordPress backend[…]

Hi everyone, Today I’ll show you how to set up a paid membership website using AVChat 3, WordPress, s2Member Framework for tracking membership and PayPal as a payment system. Apart from ads, memberships are a good source of revenue for sustaining a website. To show how much flexibility you have we’ve gone overboard and decided to build a website with 6 different user roles, 2 free and 4 of them will be paid. Each of them will have different permissions in line with their subscription plan. We’ve chosen the permissions for each user role so that: visitors are encouraged to register, registered members are encouraged to subscribe to a paid membership and paying members are encouraged to upgrade to a better plan.[…]

Hello everyone, We’ve released a major new version of AVChat Plugin Pro for WordPress 3.x. We’ve given it the 2.0 version name (build 522) because we’ve made some seriously major changes: 1) We’ve fundamentally changed the way it works: we’ve switched from sessions to native WordPress code.  Sessions are not used anymore to store AVChat 3 settings and permissions. The changes are present in both integration.php and index_popup.php. This will solve the issues with index_popup not working properly when the user visited the page directly (without going through the WordPress chat page) and some issues we’ve seen with WordPress installs on CDNs and cached servers. 2) We’ve implemented better integration with BuddyPress and with WP User Avatar: correct path to the BuddyPress and WP User Avatar image correct[…]
