Thanks for the solution, again.

What does it visibly bring on forums? Does it have username/password combination united with miniBB, or is it just a correlation by username?

Is it synchronized with miniBB users table, in general, or it's just a standalone Chatting script?

Ok, so you must also provide some README points regarding how to install it, what files does it contain etc., because it's difficult to get a clue from the general package, where's what.

Well, I will not analyze your code of course :)

Like anybody else, I would need what I have written above. A solution to plug your files in. By now it appears I should just use your package in whole, instead of default miniBB package. That won't work!

Sorry for bad English.
you make me worry. what do you mind "that won't work"?
can I know your time_zone? my time_zone is GMT+7 (sorry if you don't want to tell)
Ah, my zip not have setup_option.php
my chatbox include:
- _install_mchat.php
- All files chat_*.php
it work in other site, not only my page.
please run _install_mchat.php first

That won't work for present users. That won't work in terms of updates.

If you provide a solution or add-on, it should not include the generic core of miniBB files. It only should provide files to plug in + instructions to set it up.

We are in GMT +2. The time you see in miniBB posts, is the local time.
