Furry stuff, oekaki stuff, and other stuff.

I was thinking about integrating a chat into the oekaki (just the code-- connecting the databases would be too hard of a task). For this, I'd need to make a custom page. It'd be nice if I could make it inherit the template. So I make a copy of the faq page and open it in a text editor and see a bunch of code that I have no idea where it's from. I can almost sort of see where the place where the faq is, but I'm not completely sure.
So, are there any tips on how I'd go about making a custom page?
Like what file to copy and edit to make one, and where to include links to these custom pages?
Note that Wacintaki already has a very simple chat client, but it's disabled by default since it's not very efficient. Go into the control panel and look for "Enable Chat".
If you don't already have a chat server running (by logging into your web host and running a chat process through the system shell), there's no realistic way to run a chat system without PHP/database integration, which is what Wacintaki's built-in chat is already doing.
Hi, sorry for the delayed reply!
I'd like to use this chat system:
Someone even asked about it fetching a username from the database:

So, would it be possible to do that with the oekaki?
I'm not very good with php (as you can probably tell by now)
I like this one because it doesn't need custom pages.
Alas, I see lots of problems with this chat system as it seems to be full of bugs. The chat backlog doesn't buffer correctly, so using the scroll bars to view previous messages does some weird things. Also, while it's possible to set a username, the chat system allows you to change it on the fly, so it's easy for people to impersonate others. It's definitely not competitive with other free programs, let alone worth $10.
Take a look at the "Demo" for this one and let me know what you think. I haven't looked at the source code, but it should be easier to integrate.
