since the mChat in 3.0 became "obsolete," as far as 3.1 was concerned, in 2014 that chat window in my opinion was sorely missed
I have only just realised that a 3.2 mChat https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... extension/
is now approved and available,
I downloaded and installed it on my 3.2 board a couple of days ago and it is absolutely amazing, it seems to be every bit as good as the RMcGirr83 original PLUS I don't remember previously the dozen UCP/mChat settings that your users can change, this really just adds the icing to the cake
I know 2017 is nowhere near over but I would be so bold as to suggest that this must surely be the EXT of the year, an amazing accomplishment!!
