I have downloaded a free ASP chat that works and I am free to customise it.
There is an English language version of the site file made possible by a file called 'messages.en' which is included in the downloadable directory.
The file also include scripting that inserts a time and date that a user logs on to the chat site, but the script is in a file that I don't recognise. That part of the script that makes the time visible on screen is included here:
The time is in a US time, not a UK one, and I would need to change that but I am not sure how. If I click on the file and go to Properties it is showing as a Windows Shell Common Dll.
