    Hey all,

    I'm looking to add a shout box to my site and was looking for opinions on which of the two is better. I know TAZ used to have Taiga Chat (or both?), but I don't recall when they stopped using it. (I don't come around too often). Thanks in advance for your input.

    I'm on v 1.5x and doubt I'll upgrade to 2.x in the near future.

    Ask yourself really hard if you might upgrade to XF 2.x in the future. If yes then go with Siropu since there is no Taiga Chat for the XF2 (yet?). You may also want to read the last few pages of the Taiga Chat support thread at XF.com as the creator of it has not be been active with supporting it lately.

    Thanks, Kevin. I saw that he was MIA. Definitely doesn't instill a lot of confidence. I really can't see myself upgrading, but if I did, it would likely be a long time from now.

    Siropu is the more feature-rich of the two anyway.
    If I recall correctly - it seems like TAZ ditched Taigachat and opted for Siropu because Siropu came intact with out-of-box features that required additional (paid?) add-ons for Taigachat in order to have the same/similar functionality.

    HTH,

    I see, thank you. TAZ no longer uses Siropu either though, right?

    Not that I know of anyway.
    It seems TAZ disabled the chatbox several months ago.

    Both are sub-optimal and rarely updated
