So after checking out the SMF mods for chat options, we are looking extremely limited. This chatmee/chatwee thing is about the only thing that is integrating with the forum. For you guys, I would recommend currently clicking on it (should be at the bottom right of your screen). You might have to clear cache. But you have the option to login with twitter, facebook, etc etc. For those of you who do not want to do that, you need to login as Guest and then type in your name.
Its added onto the forum but its not really apart of the forum where it can use our user credentials. We are using the free version right now which means that only 5 users can be on at a time. I can upgrade that to 25, 50, etc etc. It just depends on how many of you guys are using the chat at one time. I am not on the forum much these days so you guys would need to fill me in on your input.
