FYI, we suggest NOT using Dreamweaver or any other similar editor, as it can be "helpful" and add things you don't want to the file. Always use a plain text editor that saves in UTF-8 with no BOM. A number of users here suggest Notepad++.

ok when u download the chat file. Unzip it to your local disk. After you unzip, you get the chat folder. Open it and you see, sub folder: root, file install.xml, license, and modx.subsilver.net.
Open the install.xml, then you sell the instructions.

File Copy
Copy: root/chat.php <-----from your local chat folder
To: chat.php <<----means you upload to your forum server directory. Example; my forum is http://www.aftermathclan.com. My forum directory folder is aftermathclan. I upload the chat.php to that directory.
Copy: root/shout.php
To: shout.php <---same i uploaded to aftermathclan directory
Copy: root/language/en/chat.php
To: language/en/chat.php <---upload to language/en/chat.php in aftermathclan directory
Copy: root/styles/prosilver/imageset/*
To: styles/prosilver/imageset/* <--this uploaded all the image files in the imageset to my style which is [darkPro] i am using. I dont know what u use, so upload to your style.
Copy: root/styles/prosilver/template/chat_body.html
To: styles/prosilver/template/chat_body.html <---find the style that u use and upload to it
Copy: root/chat_install.php
To: chat_install.php
Copy: root/adm/mods/ajax_chat_version.php
To: adm/mods/ajax_chat_version.php

Hope that helps. I got an error when i visit your link. Your subforum is blahblah?
