    Probably don't need to store the messages with a realtime chat.
    in that case they wont be able to see previous messages the next time? or even if they refresh the page.

    Also if this is the scenario (ie they dont want to store the message) then it's very easy to implement

    Yes traditionally if you wern't in the chatroom you didnt get the message - im thinking of the IRC days. I have seen web based chats store the last few messages
    which was nice for a quiet room but I havent used a web based chat for a long time so im not sure if this is the norm these days or not.

    Guys, you are going to want to use Chatwing for your website chat needs. Chatwing is free for unlimited usage, all these other services are very expensive and limit your usage.

    Have a look at Chatango or Google some free open-source web chat libraries.

    The reason why Chatwing is really the best option is as a website owner you can customize all options and even upload your own emojis, these other services make you pay them to use many parts including emojis.

    Chatwing also has both iOS and Android app which makes it really useful to control your chat rooms all the time from an iphone.
