Why the chat app works on www. domain but not without www.?

This is normal because browser doesn't allow scripts to work across different domains such as http://mysite.com and http://www.mysite.com, thus for security policy scripts are blocked.

Although this issue could be also related and solved using correct Joomla settings.

Normally Joomla uses dynamic base address for the site, having a look at the Joomla configuration.php you can check that the variable named '$live_site' has empty value as by default.


When Joomla routing resolves dynamically the site base address this will affect also the scripts, for this reason if the '$live_site' variable is not forced to a specific domain also scripts will work in any case.
