Why do you want a chat box on the portal? Would that not take away from getting folks to the index page? Just interested in your rational.

I have the chatbox on the portal too. It doesnt take away from the index at all as long as you have the view new posts and index links on there. Plus i have chat notifications for new topics so people are always clicking through there as they are chatting(my chatbox is used ALOT)

Makes sense, not sure that would work for my forum but I can see how it would work for others. Pretty sure Space can hook you up.
