Ajax Chat for phpBB 3.1.x & 3.2.x
phpBB • Ajax Chat - Contribution Details

this is a direct port of the phpBB 3.0.x modification that i had on my site.

Style Support:
this will only be supported on styles that are currently released in the phpBB styles database phpBB • [3.1.x] Styles Database Releases. depending on the style that you use, you might need to tweak the files so it looks correct for your style and this i will gladly help with. please note that even though subsilver2 is not an official style in the database, i will support it in it's basic form ;)

supported styles are now listed on the release page

Permissions: a permission system has been added ;)
please note that if you are not using the phpbb default groups that consist of Administrators, Global Moderators, and Registered Users, you will have to manually set the group permissions to use chat.
