Free WordPress Templates

We are pleased to now be offering a selection of free templates for users of WordPress.

The templates are all widget ready and were built on WordPress 2.2. At the moment we have 3 templates available for download but will be increasing the number as time permits.

You can view thumbnails of the themes and download them from our themes page.

Messaging in Flash

The initial rollout of our instant messaging network included a JavaScript client, JWChat, which allowed access to 2CatNow via a web interface.

Since then we came across XIFFIAN which is a Flash based Jabber client, after a few tests it proved to be more acceptable to users, it also works over a wider range of browsers as it is Flash based and not reliant on JavaScript functionality.

To top this off we can also allow the user to select, from a simple drop down menu, a conference room to automatically join on logging in.

The main 2ChatNow page has been updated to offer only the Flash client, with the JavaScript client being made available at

Instant Messaging

World Site Index adds an instant messaging network with conference room support this new service, 2ChatNow, allows people to chat privately in real-time or meet and chat in groups.

2ChatNow is built on the open XMPP protocol so virtually any Jabber client can be used with the service, some clients such as neos mt not only allow for text chat but also allow for full voice and video based chat. At the other end of the scale there are Jabber clients available for mobile phones, PDAs and other wireless devices.

As well as being able to use your choice of client 2ChatNow can also support federation with other Jabber servers allowing you to chat with your friends even if they do not have a 2ChatNow account.

For the times when you need to jump on for a few minutes but the PC you are at doesn’t have a Jabber client installed, we have provided a web interface which makes use of JWChat.

To find out more about 2ChatNow and start using the service, please visit the main 2ChatNow page.

Currency converter

With submissions coming from all over the world we felt that we needed to give people the option to see the cost of an express submission in their own currency, and with ever increasing international trade a currency converter is always a useful tool.

So we added one to World Site Index.
