If you have purchased a package from here, and wish the invoice to be moved to the IPS market, please send me a PM with your IPS email address and i will generate you a invoice over there. Please take notice, that renewal terms are different on the IPS market. 
For babble Chat Service users, the next version i will be changing the "license key email" to "license key identifier", you will be able to find this in Store->manage purchases (it is not up yet, but will be in a few days, i'll send out a email when it is ready). your license key will remain active during the transition and after it. I am making this change due to discussions going on about the IPS market, as some clients don't feel "comfortable" in having to register at another site, but babble chat service requires a license key, so i will need to be able to generate a license key without having to tie it to an email. if you wish to have your babble chat service invoice transferred to IPS, let me know and i can do that as well.

The babble chat service is now live. Please download 2.3.3 and install/upgrade. after purchase, please go to "Store->Purchases", there you will find your license key for the babble chat service. 
Next go to your acp->Babble->General->node settings tab (the URL should already be https://codingjungle.net if not please set it to that). Paste your liceense key into "license key" and the email from the account that was used to purchase babble into "license key email", now click save it should now activate the key. this process can take up to two hours.
enjoy

Babble Chat Service

By Michael, in General,

Update: the service will be up later tonight, I am -6 UTC, i hope to having up before midnight my time (which is 9 hours away), but a few components i made, were built on 4.1 and i am needing to update them for 4.2 (minor changes, shouldn't take long, but i will want to test them first). 
 
I will be launching the long awaited Babble Chat service on Monday 7/31/2017. I had plans on doing it today, but that was before a violent storm decided to tear thru my neighborhood and now has left me without power since Saturday night  at around 9pm  (i am still without power, but at a friends so i could get some work done). So i was unable to get all the pieces put together like I wanted too on sunday to get the chat service rolling today.
I will continue to support both types of babble (the self hosted and the service) but i will no longer be offering the babble self hosted version for sale to the general public, unless they want to pay $500 for it (however if you are interested in the self hosted version, contact me first, the price will be much lower than what is listed, same with renewal). the reasons for this are many, but to put it simply I've grown weary of the complaints from either non-technical people, people who don't see that it has special requirements and/or people who misunderstand that it isn't going to be a free service like IPS had. I might put together a "free version" later, but at this point i haven't given it much thought. unlike IPS I am not a corporation with thousands of clients, where i can offer something like this free of charge. 
I also do not plan on making great amounts of money off of the service. most of the renewal, along with the purchase price, goes towards the application and its maintenance. out of the $25 every six month renewal, the actual service is about $9 per license (the service is actual at cost) the rest goes to my time involved in updates/new features/support. 
Current Self Hosted/Trial Service:
if you are currently a self host client and would be interested in the service, please contact me and i can explain in further details the terms of it will be. If you are in the current trial service, please contact me ASAP so i can see if you will continue to use the service, if so, so i get you setup. I sent out an email, but i have only heard back from a few people.
 
Regards,
Michael

Babble Service Trial

By Michael, in General,

With IPS removing chat service next year form their application lineup. this leaves a lot of site owners out in the dark in what to do, how to replace it if it is vital to their community, and with a lot of the third party solutions being expensive or requiring a lot of setup, I have decided to see if having babble as a SAS (software as a service) is worth the time and effort it will require to get all setup. you can help me out by joining the trial. somethings to keep in mind:
you will need to purchase babble from here or from the IPS market place (if you purchase it here, i can offer you a discount on it, but please contact me before purchasing it as i will not be doing partial refunds after the fact).  you agree to only use babble during this time period (as the point of this trial is to determine what sort of infrastructure i need to create, this includes what sort of servers and their resources). you also agree to run the alpha/beta's of babble 3 and leave feedback. you also agree that by joining the trial, that you will need to register to my site here, be apart of a special members group, so you can get access to areas that are restricted. these areas include and not limited to, bug tracker, forums, downloads, store, etc. I will also be using this group to send out emails/pm's with questions or surveys that you agree to return to me filled out/answered in a timely manner.  babble version 3 looks significantly different than babble version 2 and the way it works is also slightly different. https://codingjungle.com/roadmaps/babbles/ you can visit my roadmaps for babble, to see the changes. I will be updating it in the next few days to bring it up to date with the current state of babble version 3. Other things to consider, if the trial is successful the service will be done on a 6 month renewal terms. none of the prices will be set in stone yet, so i can not say how much the terms will be, but i will try to make them as reasonable as possible.  if this trial doesn't work out for any reason, I will offer to help any one setup their own solutions to get babble working. 
if you wish to join the trial, please contact me via PM or thru the contact form. the trial will officially begin December 1st and will last 1 month to 6 months (so i can collect stats on usage, and see what is the best way to go about it).

New Features:
MM Style Mobile Menu (similar to the one found in IPS 4.x, there are limitations to this menu, as it only handles menus, so any magic block or application addon features as popular and featured are not displayed. this only applies to the mobile menu however. This is a setting in the group management, by default it will use CJ Menu's mobile menu) add stems to sub menu disable "cloning of menu" import from IPS Navigation (from their menu system, not just import everything) speed improvements
