BlaB! AX Pro Demo

BlaB! AX Pro is a PHP/AJAX group chat system. The frontend and the Admin CP are with mobile friendly responsive design, HTML5 and CSS3 compliant, support any browser and HiDPI displays ready.







ESC-centric - the ESC key closes any element that is on top and opens the main panel in chat and the menu in Admin CP. On mobile, a swipe from the left edge opens the main panel in chat and the menu in Admin CP. Users can scroll with arrow keys, mouse wheel and by dragging. A double click swaps between select mode and drag to scroll mode. CTRL+SHIFT+1-9 activates rooms 1-9. CTRL+SHIFT+L/R arrows cycles through rooms.


Any file can be uploaded and posted in chat: images, audio mp3 and video mp4 that are recognized automatically and can be streamed while a link to any other file is displayed instead. Users can share and watch YouTube, Twitch.TV & Vimeo videos, post & listen to SoundCloud and MixCloud tracks, playlists. Users can post an address and display in chat a map (Google Maps), source code (the language is recognized and highlighted) and there is also an IRC-like /roll dice feature (up to 99d99 with sum/avg).


Channels and Rooms


A channel is a separate installation of BlaB! AX Pro. Channels are totally isolated from one another and with separate admin panels. Channels can share users, user groups (group permissions can be the same or different) and static files: emoticons, stickers, sounds etc. You can install multiple channels under one domain at no additional cost.


Rooms are separate chat spaces under one channel. Every chatter is connected to all the rooms and receives any message posted in any room with a visual notification and a different sound notification for messages posted in background. From version 19.11↗ - hidden rooms: only selected user groups can see and chat in hidden rooms.

A typical installation with 3 channels and 3 rooms per channel can be seen at our demo site: DEMO #2.


BlaB! AX Pro supports voice & video messages in Firefox, Firefox Mobile and any desktop/mobile Chromium based browser - Chrome, Chrome Mobile, Opera, Brave, Vivaldi. The length and the quality of a voice/video message can be adjusted from the Admin CP.



TimeMachine displays messages and announcements at intervals. TheGodFather scans public & private messages and replies with predefined phrases on a keyword match. NewsMachine responds with the latest news (country-wise & language-wise) on a keyword match or posts random news in chat. GIF machine posts a GIF image when a keyword match is found. Aunt Hedwig delivers in chat external content such as tweets, RSS Facebook posts. Bling Machine displays in chat fullscreen animations, announcements and adverts.

Integration with forums and CMS

BlaB! AX Pro supports integration with IPS Suite (v4.x), Joomla, MyBB, phpBB3 (3.1+), Simple Machines, Vanilla, vBulletin (v5.x), Woltlab Suite, WordPress, Xenforo. People registered and logged onto your forum/CMS enter the chat with their usernames directly, without a login prompt.

If you would like to integrate with another forum/CMS - contact us prior to placing your order.

BlaB! AX Pro is NOT a Module, Plugin, Add-on. It does NOT touch your forum/CMS installation so that you can upgrade it easily and even switch BlaB! AX Pro to work with another, e.g. remove phpBB and install vBulletin and by replacing a couple of variables, BlaB! AX Pro will recognize your vBulletin users the same way it did it with phpBB. The registration/login part of BlaB! AX Pro still exists. It depends on your settings whether people are allowed to register new BlaB! AX Pro accounts.

You can import user groups from your forum or CMS so that moderators are moderators in chat, those who are banned are not allowed to send chat messages etc. A Forum/CMS user enters the chat with permissions based on their PRIMARY group from your forum/CMS no matter how many groups he/she is a members of. There are also some differences:

We provide information and step-by-step instructions how to embed BlaB! AX Pro into IPS Suite 4, Joomla, MyBB, phpBB, Vanilla, vBulletin 5, Woltlab Suite, WordPress and Xenforo using an available option in their ACP to create static pages or a similar plugin.
