First of all, sorry if this is in the wrong place but I am not to sure were to put it.

I have phpBB running on my site, PCLobby - A place for computer people (http://www.pclobby.net) at version 2.0.21, the newest... What I want to do is to create a php based chat room on a web page and then have a link to it on one of my forum links as is at the top of phpbb forums on the default template.

How do I customize those links so as I could have like:

log on member list FAQ Search
Live chat usergroups

Hi the bit you need to find is ,

<td align="center" valign="top" nowrap="nowrap"><span class="mainmenu">&nbsp;<a href="{U_FAQ}" class="mainmenu"><img src="templates/subSilver/images/icon_mini_faq.gif" width="12" height="13" border="0" alt="{L_FAQ}" hspace="3" />{L_FAQ}</a>&nbsp; &nbsp;<a href="{U_SEARCH}" class="mainmenu"><img src="templates/subSilver/images/icon_mini_search.gif" width="12" height="13" border="0" alt="{L_SEARCH}" hspace="3" />{L_SEARCH}</a>&nbsp; &nbsp;<a href="{U_MEMBERLIST}" class="mainmenu"><img src="templates/subSilver/images/icon_mini_members.gif" width="12" height="13" border="0" alt="{L_MEMBERLIST}" hspace="3" />{L_MEMBERLIST}</a>&nbsp; &nbsp;<a href="{U_GROUP_CP}" class="mainmenu"><img src="templates/subSilver/images/icon_mini_groups.gif" width="12" height="13" border="0" alt="{L_USERGROUPS}" hspace="3" />{L_USERGROUPS}</a>&nbsp;

Who is going to host your chat room? You can't host it here. I'd recommend using sigmachat and this MOD (http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=303708&highlight=sigmachat) to add it to your forum.

The end result would look like the header on this forum (http://realsoulwinners.4mdepot.com/forum/).
