Hmm, it's not showing up on the main page either....not the page with each thread but the page where you can look at all the boards within chalkbucket.
I think it would be a mistake to completely eliminate the chatbox from every page except the full chatbox page, because most of us don't go into the full chatbox page unless we see someone else is in there, and we can't see if someone else is there unless it shows up on the main page. I liked it when it showed up on the main page and there was the option to "turn it off" if the older people don't want to see it.
Well here is an idea. If you need to restrict the chatbox to the big chatbox page only, can you put just the thing that show's who has been active in the chat in the last 10 mins on the main forum page? That way, someone looking at the forums can see "oh, so and so is in the chat, so let me join them".
