Showing mChat in the bottom of the index page

Hi all,

There were many similar questions and resolutions, but I couldn't fix it on my forum. I am new to phpbb administration and I just can't set it right. And problems explained before are not 100% like mine.

There is plain option in the ACP Global user settings for mChat or UCP. When it (Location on the index page) is set to TOP it is visible but when I set it to BOTTOM it is not shown anywhere. I installed some other chat extensions that have options to be put to bottom and they behave same - they won't show in the bottom of index page! I suppose it is linked to permissions and tried to set to my user all of them but no success.

Because mChat is THE BEST I tried I am asking you to help me if you can. I am devastated, I am clicking on the ACP for days... :-(

What screenshots do you need for start?

Hi djusko, please provide more information about your setup: phpBB Version, style name, style version. Did you test with prosilver?

Thank you for your reply Kasimi.

phpBB version is 3.2.8
For style we use WoWDraenor (it is version 3.1.1).

You ask all the right questions! :-)
I changed style for forum to prosilver and mChat works in bottom!!!

There is no WoWDraenor for version 3.2.x. :-(


What do you suggest? I am very attached to this style because it has only black and white and it is very clean and readable and it would be great if you point me in right direction... I tried some styles from your list of supported styles but they are bloated for my taste... :-(

Is it easy to take some clean style that is not black and white and make it black and white? How it is done?

I strongly advise against using phpBB 3.2 with a style written for 3.1. That's a recipe for disaster, and I'm surprised it's working at all. Regarding a style for 3.2 that suits your needs you'll need to ask someone else because I'm no style expert.

Anyway, zip your style's template/overall_footer.html and template/index_body.html and attach it here.

Put these back in your template folder and clear your board cache. :+1:
