Hello evilmonkey29,

You have done the following ?

Administration Panel > Modules > Javascript codes management > Create a new script

Title : Avacweb Chat
Placement : In all the pages
Paste the code below and save :
Code:
var avacweb_chat_config = {
  version : '1-8',
  new_chat_title : 'AvacWeb Chatbox',
  auto_log_in : 'open',
  archives : 1,
  sound_file : 'http://www.freesfx.co.uk/rx2/mp3s/2/1305_1256857800.mp3',
  stylesheet : 'http://chat.avacweb.net/avacweb_chat.css',
  disable_timeout : 0,
  allow_private_messaging : 1,
  allow_user_resize : 1,
  commands : {},
  can_open_tabs : [1], //user ids of users who can open new tabs.
  tabs : {},
  allow_copyrights : 1, //please be kind and allow AWC to place small discreet copyrights and backlink on your forum.
  // DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING BELOW
  message_hook:[],user_hook:[],events:{},add_event:function(t,f) {t=/^on/.test(t)?t:'on'+t;t in this.events?this.events[t].push(f):this.events[t]=[f]}};
  document.write('<script type="text/javascript" src="http://chat.avacweb.net/v' + avacweb_chat_config.version + '.js" id="achat_script"></script>');

Then for PMs :
Administration Panel > Display > Pictures and colors > Colors > CSS stylesheet

Paste the css below into your sheet and submit :
Code:
.a_chat_pm tr, .a_chat_pm td, .a_chat_tab tr, .a_chat_tab td { display:none!important; }
  .a_chat_pm:before, .a_chat_tab:before { content: 'Hidden Content'; font-style: italic; }

Note this is a mod to the original chatbox, if it is not activated you must activate it under :
Administration Panel > Modules > Chatbox

The chatbox doesn't need to be present on the page for it to work, only activated.
