Sorry, I will take a few screenshots. The messages were slow because I have it on up to a 1 second delay. This can be adjusted in the php file (I'll make it an option for the admin panel in an upcoming release). I did notice an issue, a person leaving the chat results in a jquery error. I'm about to fix this now.

Daniel Hood updated PHP Help Center Chat with a new update entry:

First Bug Fixes

-users not being removed from user list.

Tried your demo and while I could see what I typed.... I could not see anything submitted by myself or anyone else (see screen shot).

Further, when leaving the chat and going to the forum.... Got some kind of error telling me if couldn't connect (though I did reach the forum)

Can I get your browser information? I've experienced the error saying couldn't connect. It's supposed to be for if the ajax cannot get the new messages or anything but sometimes happens on user abort (leaving the page).

[Edit] I've tested on Chrome and IE9. I believe it's been tested on Firefox 22

That's intended for now. We were showing previous messages but it was buggy. A short message history when first entering the chat is intended.

I think I figured out why it was displaying blank messages. I'll repackage in a few minutes. I had a typo on the default room id for the datawriter.

Personal Messages are already existing, they're just set up as room tabs right now. I do intend on having them site-wide and at the footer like Facebook for a later version though.

Here's a screenshot of a private message room:

That's weird. What version of xF are you installing on?

Try this: overwrite xf_root/library/PHCchat/Install.php with this. I had this as the file but when I went to install of xf 1.2 beta 5 it produced error messages.

Code:
<?php

class PHCchat_Install
{
    private static $_instance;
    protected $_db;

    public static final function getInstance()
    {
        if (!self::$_instance)
        {
            self::$_instance = new self;
        }

        return self::$_instance;
    }

    protected function _getDb()
    {
        if ($this->_db === null)
        {
            $this->_db = XenForo_Application::get('db');
        }

        return $this->_db;
    }
    public static function Install()
    {
        $this->_getDb()->query("CREATE TABLE `phcchat_users_online` (
            `user_id` int(10) NOT NULL,
            `enter_time` int(20) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0',
            `last_action_time` int(20) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0',
            PRIMARY KEY (`user_id`)
        ) ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1;");
       
        $this->_getDb()->query("CREATE TABLE `phcchat_messages` (
            `message_id` int(10) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,

            KEY `likes` (`likes`)
        ) ENGINE=MyISAM AUTO_INCREMENT=2 DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 AUTO_INCREMENT=1 ;");
       
        $this->_getDb()->query("INSERT INTO xf_content_type (content_type, addon_id) VALUES ('PHCchat_Message', 'PHCchat')");

Currently leaving the chat or refreshing removes all message history. I will add some message history in an upcoming release.

I'll add that button for sending messages for next release.

Two person chats are initiated by scrolling over a person's message and clicking pm. I also plan to add a button to the sidebar under the user's name. Maybe a command also like /pm username

I'm not sure what you're referring to with your last comment.

Don't worry about it (the English). That part of it probably wont be added for a little while. the rest of your requests will be included in upcoming releases.
