Great script, I am using it on 4 websites now. My app Meetking has more than a 1,000,000 downloads, you can see it on Google Play. It uses the older Urban template.

Chameleon Social is certainly the best software for social and dating sites out there now. Why? One can not create a site now without any 3D, Augmented Reality, and Virtual Reality features. It is 2017 people! Get back to Earth. No one is interested in more websites with just HTML pages and that is it. The web is developing into something new, not just pages. Ever heard about Pokemon GO? This is what is happening now. Everything is becoming more real, more 3D and multi faceted. This is why I chose this software for its 3D and interactive features. For example all of the members of my website just LOVE the Street Chat feature. They can use their own faces, their own streets and places of their own city, and chat. No one else has it now and probably will never have. But if you want a simple website with just HTML pages you could probably use another script, like SkaDate or PHPFox.

I would like to share my opinion about chameleon dating and social software it is made by the websplosion Limited. it's a decent piece of software where you can change a lot of things like the main page image the colors, font, you can disable features, you can enable features... basically I think that is why it is called chameleon in the first place.
The only thing that I would like to improve is the lack of more templates now you can just change the main image and that is all but it would be great to have more templates like most social templates. More dating, more Intranet templates. if I were to compare chameleon with some other company or product I would compare them with apple because Apple also is very closed, for example it's very difficult to 2 change things to customize things on Android you can change a lot of things you can it's more it's more Elastic, more customizable. in Apple iOS and Mac OS you are very limited within the system, they are perfect, they cool but you are inside of the system so to speak, you can of change much, the same happens with chameleon as I think.
on the whole it's a very good piece of software especially taking into consideration the price but this is the thing I would like to change - to add more templates, more different templates and make them even more customizable. this would improve chameleons a lot and would help to become the best software in the world, which of course they want to be. so basically I will give a good 4 to the software. it would be 5 if they had like 5 more templates at least. Each of which needs to be customizable.

I remember back in the old days when BBS’s ruled. One product stood out, and that was what became WorldGroup, a true multi-user web site engine capable of up to 255 users at a time, and had every feature under the sun that even today is considered “new” in the web and facebook world. Since then (mid 90s), all these web scripts that have come about have proven to basically be a bunch of junk by way of comparison, mostly because of the crappy, unstable, convoluted, “use the force” installations required by these junkware LAMP stacks they all sit on – every single one of them.
But one thing needs to be said about the whole dating script industry:
Through my research, I have come to know that Chameleon Script is pretty much the only vendor out there who isn’t slamming all the competition with a bunch of lies. I’m finding it very disturbing that nearly every dating software vendor out there that I’ve investigated is nothing more than a bunch of juvenile PHP script hacks, evidenced by how none of them have anything good to say about their competition in the desperate attempt at generating business for themselves. It’s sad to see the dating software industry is replete with liars and con artists who fill their own web sites with fake testimonials about their own software, but that’s the way it is – and it just sucks to be someone wanting to create a great web site, because you have to wade through all of this crap.
So far, Chameleon Dating Software is the only vendor I’ve seen who doesn’t engage in this practice, and earns its keep. I’ve been doing lots of research on which products are out there, which ones have good support. I hate all of them. But Chameleon, to me, is the only one that puts the two together in one single acceptable standalone package. This is critical to me, because I own my own dedicated servers. Chameleon is, in my opinion, the only real choice I have simply due to the fact that I will be getting the support that is advertized and they’ve been around long enough for all the major bugs to be worked out. Perfect? Probably not, an unrealistic expectation. But certainly the lesser of all evils in the industry, which will just have to do.
Based on all my findings, I will soon be purchasing Chameleon again, but I do so wishing there was even better out there because I’ve been spoiled with much better in the past in my BBS days. Chameleon will have to do until I find the time to crank up my dev studio products and write my own complete, inclusive, dedicated, compiled, double-click self-installable dating web site product that doesn’t have to sit on all this weak, unstable, out-of-control LAMP stack junkware.
Why do I write in such a serious manner? Because I’m serious about my online presence, and I hate trusting it to inferior products and technologies, especially when it’s all that is available out there.

Well I am still working on getting my site together. Albert and his staff have been very prompt in answering my request. I am working through learning how to use the software and my questions are being answered. I feel very close to seeing my dream of having my own website. From the start everything just seemed right. I have had a very bad experience with a company that took my money and never delivered on the service or the product. This is a new start for me and what I have experienced this far has me believing. I made the right choice!

I've got what I needed, although I feel many more tech questikns to follow, but I would not hesitate to recommend these guys, especially to all none tech people!

Good script but not so good support. Yes I understand the price is EXTRA low (datingpro.com costs 10 times more with all the features Chameleon offers) but I would prefer to pay 200 bucks more and get a faster support. Some tickets may take as long as 24(!) hours to reply. Yes there are many clients but a slightly higher price could afford them to hire more people.
Also they almost do not do modifications and I have to use freelancer.com. It is ok, but would be a lot better if they themselves could help with this. Those who know the script can do things a lot faster.

After doing quite a bit of research I decided to purchase Chameleon Dating late last night.
Given all the positive press on this product I thought it might be interesting to contribute to this blog by providing a blow-by-blow update on the purchased, installation and use of Chameleon Dating Software.
I’m not a developer and have no desire to become one. I’m a business person. I don’t have the skill set or time to be modifying code in scripts. I need a dating script that’s feature rich and easy to use after the initial learning curve. I’m willing to spend the time up front to learn the fundamentals. My point is I understand there are no silver bullets and there will be a learning curve.
Nearly all the websites I run use WordPress. I primarily create informational sites for niche markets. WordPress is an obvious great fit for me because I can have a website up and running from domain purchase to full functionality within 24 hours normally.
I use GoDaddy for my domain name purchases and Host Gator as my hosting provider. My hosting account with host gator allows me to create and manage all of my websites in one place.
I use a product called Market Samurai for my niche market keyword research. I also use a WordPress development framework called PageLines.
It’s a drag-and-drop environment for WordPress which helps me build sites using drag-and-drop functionality. I can’t say enough good things about PageLines. If there’re other WordPress users out there you should check this product out.
Initially I was hoping to find a WordPress dating plug-in and simply create a new WordPress site. Unfortunately there was only one viable plug-in for dating that I could find from a company called Dating Solutions.
I purchased their dating plug-in and after playing around with it the for a week I decided it just simply didn’t meet my requirements. It’s extremely bare-bones from a functionality perspective and the UI is frankly terrible.
At that point I decided to abandon a WordPress approach and go with the professional dating site software script. I won’t spend much time on all the options that were available but suffice it to say at one point my head felt like it was going to spin off into outer-space.
I narrowed my search down to three products. Chameleon Dating Software was by far the most expensive but also very feature-rich. There were two factors that led to my final decision to purchase. I watched all the Chameleon Dating Software training videos on YouTube and was very impressed with what I saw from a functionality perspective.
I would go so far as to say that in my case the negative reviewers comments, which I believe to be mostly unfounded and/or false, had the opposite effect of what was intended.
So on to my purchase. I placed my order late in the evening yesterday. However, before doing that I decided to go ahead and secure my hosting. I decided not to use my Host Gator account but rather use one of their recommended hosting providers. I chose Arvixe.
Setting up hosting services with Arvixe was pretty straightforward and only took a few minutes. They’re hosting fees are very low.
I chose them primarily because they were recommended by Chameleon Dating and as such there shouldn’t be be any difficulty from a server configuration and script installation perspective.
After setting up hosting and receiving my DNS server names from Arivxe I logged into Go Daddy and pointed the DNS server for my domain to the correct location.
I then placed my order with Chameleon.. I purchased both the dating script and the mobile script. (Just as a side note I’m a huge believer that if you don’t have some sort of mobile approach to serving content to your customers you’re going to be left behind.).
I received an email almost immediately from the Chameleon Dating support support team requesting I confirm my purchase which I did.
I then received an email questionnaire required to do the installation and setup. By accident I had initiated a chat session with their support team. This actually turned out quite beneficial as I was able to ask a number of questions via chat as we were exchanging emails back and forth on the set up. This exchange ended around 1 AM eastern. My initial impression of Chameleon Dating Software support was quite positive.
On the questionnaire I had indicated Chameleon Dating do the install. At approximately 1:30 AM Eastern time I received an email from support indicating there was a problem with my server set up and that they would like me to request the hosting provider move my account to a different server.
The Chameleon support rep and the Arivex support rep had apparently chatted online and agreed to this course of action. Unfortunately the request to move my account had to be initiated by me personally. I didn’t see the request until 6:30 AM Eastern this morning at which time I sent an email requesting a change as requested.
So far so good!

I’ve been on the hunt for a true turnkey solution for many years now, and the price was the first thing that struck me about the Chameleon product. At just a fraction of the cost of many other scripts, the Chameleon social / dating software gives you everything you need for your website to hit the ground running.
There are many templates out of the box, which gave me a wide range to launch many different websites with little to no hassle. Video and audio chats are also included where it’s a paid extra at any other software script bundle. If you are planning on launching multiple dating sites, there’s really no better software solution to get the job done quick.
Free hosting and mobile apps are yet another reason why Chameleon dating software is really the most cost efficient yet effective means of launching your social networking website.
Best of all support is free and it’s for the lifetime of your install, which is really unheard of in this industry. The developers are really on top of their game, because I’ve gotten 3 updates since my install, which gives me the confidence to build knowing I won’t be stuck with a legacy system.
Simply put the Chameleon product is superior in so many ways that there’s really no reason why you should choose another solution. Easily one of the most comprehensive software packages available, I wouldn’t hesitate to turn to Chameleon for my next website project.
The only real drawback to me is the fact that you’ll need an individual license to launch an additional website, which I wish I knew before making the purchase for my second website. If you are planning on launching multiple sites, buy the licenses up front and get the discount up front.
Review by RaeQwan4 years ago
I do like both your software and support, but I think you can greatly improve the approval rate of your software, and cut down on support needed, by putting question marks throughout the software, when someone puts their pointer over the question mark, either a float, or popup tells the user, whether admin or a member, what that section does, and how to use it.
Then everyone would be able to easily familiarize themselves with the software; which in turn, means happy customers. At the very least their should be two downloadable pdf's (one for admin, one for members) with screenshots throughout explaining how to use the software.
Just my opinion, but your clients don't want to have to keep turning to support every time they are trying to do something, anymore than I'm sure you guys like spending your time answering support questions.
Provide one or the other that I've described above, and I guarantee your testimonials will go through the roof, and you will have all kinds of clients becoming affiliates as well.

As a social network developer, I've worked with some large and small companies as well as created some of my own networks. I've created everything from basic social networks for communities all the way to large networks for schools and global communities. For anyone looking to code their own network, it definitely requires knowledge of complex code, mainly HTML, MySQL, and PHP. If you don't have a background in these fields, Chameleon is a great alternative. Basically, Chameleon is an all-in-one solution that allows you to easily build moderate to advanced social networks. Chameleon itself is both a social network script (the code) and an easy to use admin panel (or backend). I've built sites with Chameleon and I actually prefer it for most types of projects over coding my own, as I can spring up sites a lot faster with Chameleon.
I've worked with both Chameleon and many other related social network scripts, and I can easily say that you get the most bang for your buck with Chameleon. You get a lot for a low price. One thing a lot of sellers do is sell you the basic script and charge you for modules. With Chameleon, you get eveyrthing in one payment. You also get access to all the code, which means you can modify it or hire someone to do it rather than having some of it locked up. Everything can be customized, including colors and wording. Updates occur about twice a month. You also get mobile apps with the package, rather than having to code your own. They also have decent support. Email is usually answered within hours and they also offer phone support.
Overall, if you're looking to build a social network, Chameleon is a great choice. It's easy to use and has everything you need. The only complain I have is you get only one domain per license. So if you want to use it on multiple domains, you have to buy another license. But it's already very cheap, so it only makes sense. If you plan on only developing a single site, then this is perfect for that reason, as you only have to purchase a single license for everything. You'll be able to make moderate to complex networks with this script. It's not for a simple site, as it's loaded with features. However, you can always edit the code or get a freelancer to do it for you. You can pretty much build sites similar to the leading social networks with Chameleon. Highly recommended.
Excellent script, Chameleon. Great for beginners or advanced users to make sites easily and readily. If you need help setting up a domain or logo, they also offer that for you as well. The script and service is geared towards beginners so it makes the whole process very user friendly. Try asking their support if you have any questions. You'll likely be impressed. Solid.

Review by Analyce Godoship5 years ago
I've been using this software for about a month, and overall, pleased with the package. There are a few drawbacks that must be overcome.
Without an in-depth user manual, this software can be very confusing during initial setup. Learning the use of its many features comes down to trial and error. If the site administrator is confused, think of how the new users feel and how quickly they'll move on in frustration.
Support tickets, at times, are confusing with short, non-verbose answers.
The following is an actual example:
My first post,
I've seen the check boxes, in the administrator cPanel, where I can assign specific users as moderators of photos and text. I've assigned three users this capability and when they login there is a "Moderator" link on their home page.
When they click on this link, they're taken to a page with three buttons, "Moderator Photo", "Moderator Essay" and "Save". Clicking on any of these links, causes the page to refresh, but nothing else.
Realizing there was no new user to approve, I created a "test profile" waiting for approval, and again, nothing happens.
How do these three moderators use the assigned capabilities?
Please activate in menu "Main > Options > Site options":
- The texts need to be checked
- The photos need to be checked
As I said in the first post; I've checked the boxes. Now, I want to know how to use this ability.
Please make sure that these options active in "Main > Options > Site options.
Are these "canned responses"? This is twice you've sent this type of reply and this is the third time I've said, "Yes, the boxes are checked."
What I need to know is, "How do the moderators use the software to approve/disapprove photos or text?" A step-by-step would be great!
Member upload photo in profile or change text fields and these values appear on moderator page.
Thank you. I have tested it and understand how it works now.
This ticket can be closed.
As you can see, my third post expressed my frustration.
Next issue: As an administrator, I've rearranged the top navigation menu order, but an additional option should be: the ability to move menu items to a drop-down sub menu location. For instance, move "Groups" below the "Forums".
As with any software, I understand there is a learning curve, but an in-depth manual is definitely needed.
Review by Arunprabu Kasselis5 years ago
Fantastic for the price. I would expect to pay a lot more for all the features it offers. Install is fairly easy, if you know what you are doing. I wish the fake profiles were cheaper, but again, for what you get, everything is very fairly priced. I disagree with the other review that said the support is slow. I usually receive a response within 24 hours.
I have tried other dating software - there's a WordPress theme that I tried that I won't name - and to be honest, it doesn't even come close to Chameleon. Multilingual, ip-database for location detection, email services, affiliate program etc. Really awesome work, guys. If only marketing the dating site after it's set up were so easy.*
If there was one thing I don't like it would be the fact that you can only install the software on one website per license. I have so many ideas for niche sites and I wish I could try them all at once, but that's too pricey for me. I understand you have to make money though and it's a more than fair price.
*Btw, offering marketing services to your clients would be a great way to make money on the back end. I personally don't need it because I'm an online marketer by trade, but it'd be a great way to keep to price lower than your competitors and increase your profits. SEO, Analyitics, Adwords campain management, landing page design, social media management, lead acquisition etc.

I have been using the Chameleon software with the Oryx template now for a few weeks (not sure what name the company goes by) and have been testing extensively and I find it is very nice software. Takes a little getting used to using the admin section and it could probably be laid out a bit better. I am not an expert on PHP or HTML programming but I have been able to make modifications to the template to suit my needs. I have asked many questions over the past few weeks (They probably fear looking at my name in their email LOL) and they have all been answered pretty promptly, although in some cases the answer could be a little clearer since unlike them, we do not know this software inside and out. So far I have found a few bugs in the software and they were dealt with pretty fast. It is a unfortunate however that there is no User Manual available that outlines the majority of features available in the software especially for the Admin section, when running into something you don’t quite understand a ticket has to be submitted where this could have been explained in such a manual. (Searching the support forum or FAQ usually doesn’t answer the question) one example in the admin options there is an option for “Smart profile” or “Simple profile”, an explanation with a question mark would be helpful or a peak in the Manual would be nice.
Before purchasing the software I did a lot of research comparing different software packages and found some posts that talked about this company pretty negatively, not sure who posted them or where they got their information. Over all I have to say I am pleased with the software and the technical support I have received so far.
