Is there no permissions for this mod?? Anyone can post to the chat box.. leaves it wide open to spammers.

Check mchat.php
You can disable guest posting and several other things there.

Would there be any problems with reducing the refresh time?? some of my members are testing it and say it might get a bit busy and they would miss posts with a 10 sec delay. I think 10 is fine.. but I best ask so I can answer them :D :D

It will increase server load if you decrease the refresh time and you may find that some users won't be able to post at all because it will be almost constantly refreshing.

It doesn't seem to effect posting. I can be typing a message at the same time it is refreshing and my message remains intact until I post it ;)

I don't see any point in a who's online. I can see that in the forum itself.. so why have it twice?


On another note.. have left it at 5 second refresh all day and no members have mentioned any difficulties or errors :)

Before upgrading, did you uninstall the mchat like instructed?
If so, how did you do it?

Sorry, not sure what you mean. I haven't upgraded the forum. I've just added the mchat mod to an existing forum install, but for some reason the smilies and bbcode have stopped working. Can someone help me please?
