As the Web develops, so do the methods with which we communicate with one another. Whether you administrate a robust online community or are just getting a 'Net presence started, it's more than just a "novel" concept to integrate live features like video, audio, chat, or a combination of them into a website - it is increasingly fundamental to your success. If you're working with content systems such as Mambo, vbulletin or PHP-Nuke (and most recently Drupal) there is a pretty cool plug-in created by UserPlane that you should take a look at - www.Userplane.com. Userplane's Webchat plug-in module enables developers and administratos to add Userplane instant messaging and chat to their sites which, for blander sites, could work wonders on usability and of course functionality. The plug-in is available for free download and includes pre-written code modules, permitting quick and easy installation. And no one can say that the Userplane folks are asleep at the wheel - they have also released an archiving feature for the plug-in which enables clients to maintain chat histories, logs of user activity and create fill audits on Webchat activity.
