I have handed over the authorship this mod to RMcGirr83 per his request. He is now the official owner of the mod.
As he has done most of the work I think this is only fair.

Good luck ;)

The idea for this is pretty awesome!

I just tried to install it, i have the skin Coffee Time installed:
viewtopic.php?f=185&t=1038985

Its the first phpBB forum ive ever had, so its all pretty new.


What do you exactly mean with the following?
1. Browse to the file mchat_install.php in the root of your forum to make the database changes.


I did everything except that step as i dont really understand what you mean with it, i was hoping it would work without that step, but nothing shows up and i dont even get error messages.
It also doesnt show up in my .mods

Put that file on your web address.

So if your forum address is http://www.forum.com you would go to http://www.forum.com/mchat_install.php in your browser.

I really like this. But how can I also enable "new reply" posted on the mchat? I know how to enable new topics, but the "new reply" option would really be nice..
