The mod adds a fast java chat window into SMF forum and passes your users username into it. Make sure the room name you choose has not been chosen by anyone else (I use RFC for my room name). This is a fully IRC compliant server, and you could even use mirc or another irc program to log into it.

Check it in use at and click on any of the forums. You can login with test:test

This is the same mod that has been used since YabbSE.

Make sure to follow the readme file after uploading and installing using the package manager.

New in 2.7
Fixed so it works with SMF 1.1.1

NEW in 2.6
Number of users and a list of users is now stored on in your mysql database. The forum will poll the irc server every 3 minutes by default for updated info. The polling time (in seconds) can be changed in moderator settings with the rest of this info.

The reason of this is to GREATLY increase the load time of the boad as the irc server response time is 1-2 seconds. You no longer need to rely on the server as the info is local. Also, your forum won't hang while waiting for a response if the irc server gets reset.

NEW in 2.5
Addded the ability to toggle on/off chat stats at top of index page.
Move chat into a separate area of Features and Option in Admin panel.
NEW in 2.4
Added the ability to toggle on/off chat stats at bottom of index.

NEW in 2.3
Fixed rooms tab option so you can choose whether or not to show other rooms.
Added an option to turn the ads on or off. The ads are set to on by default. They are there to help support the heavy usage the chat server has, but you can easily turn it off if you want.
Fixed a few other small things.

NEW in 2.2:
If you are using the mod in english you can change the chatLanguage from embedded.prm to change the color scheme of the applet to:

Otherwise chatLanguage represents the following languages:

In the future:
  I still need to clean up the code a bit to make it easier to translate and make it xhtml compliant
  Fix the uninstall
