have you checked to see if mchat works on prosilver style at all. if it does work in prosilver then it should just be an easy fix. from the looks of it event for portal is loading but the style isn't.


ok i've worked out what the issue. the WoWDraenor itself is missing ALLOT of events in the style and where mchat uses events to hook into the style its cant do that if they don't exist hense why it is not showing up on your theme at all. i bet if you switched on prosilver theme it would work instantly as they has the events in place.

hmmm ok just looked into it. i got it working on my test board here.

this is what i done.

acp/customise/style/ WoWDreanor >> inherits from "prosilver" ------- active >> "yes"

acp/general/board settings/ default style >> "WoWdreanor"
guest style >> "WoWdreanor"
override user style >> "yes"

as soon as i done that mchat popped up on both portal and index.

hm... same settings @ my board, but no chat... i will try a fresh install @ another website and give it a try

maybe it fails because i had the original mchat installed before? i deaktivated it and deleted the files before i copied your files to my board...

ok, now it's getting weird... on my cellphone (Galaxy S5) the chat apears and i can see, that some users already used it... now, i am really confused!

edit: on my fresh/clean install i have the same problem! (schattenraid.de)




edit 2: my fault - the chat appears in forumindex - but still nowhere @ portal
