If you are referring to the minichat...
Open the mchat_ajax_mini.js file and find this in the file.

Code: Select all

data:$jQ('#postform').serialize(),

after it add

Code: Select all

async:false,

Once done upload the edited js file back into the mchat directory on your forum and refresh your browsers cache
