I know Sunset Chat is very old but my 5th grade classes (am a teacher) love it it is very easy to use and works on every browser. Thanks so much for the code. Just one question. How can I create more rooms? The one room fills up fast and others can't join. If you can please email me an answer or put it here.

Glad you like it Randy!

For reference for others, here's the link:

Multiple rooms are supported, and each can have their own room style and bot. Take a look at this second room:

Each room is stored in the MySQL table called "chat_room". For each room, you can assign a robot to sit there to play games and such. Just assign a bot to a "chat_chair" position as is done in the MySQL generator file that comes with the ZIP download of the chat. (Robots are just special participants who don't "die" and get removed from the room if their "lastbreath" value is too old, to speak in the language of the scripts.)

If you have any questions setting this up, let me know.

PS: Please download the latest version, there was an update.
