    This plugin looks fantastic. Great work! Is there a way to adjust it so that users may only use it to chat with specific administrative users, as a sort of 'help' feature?

    I installed this plugin together with the getkey one. I dont get any error messages but the chat doesnt appear at all.
    My moodle site is 3.1+ (Build: 20160616) and using the Adaptable theme.
    Thank you in advance.
