Is there a way to set the minimum post to minimum post per day?

ie:

Users with post count less than X can not view ChatBox - Set X [ ]


change it too:
Users with daily post count less than X can not view ChatBox - Set X [ ]

ANYONE WITH THE LOADING ISSUE, YOU DID NOTHING WRONG.

It has to do with incorrect address pathing within the code.

My partner was able to get it working last night by making sure to prepend all address calls with ../forum/

Apologies if this has been asked before. I read about the first 5 pages...

Is it possible to have a separate chat for different forums on the same site? That is, for example, if you have a games forum that has different forums for different games...can you have a separate chat on some of the forums?

Hello ,
I have a request for adding a feature .
Is it possible to have advertisement sentences between the chat ? For example in front of 5 chat message we would be able to send a AD BOT message or SPONSORED LINK .
Also this idea can be repleted by a FORUM NEWS or FORUM STATISTICS function when a thread updates a message would show in the chat box calling "The thread X Updated".

Regards

After x period of time without any message, how about if it plays a sound when there's a new message?
