Can i move the sidebar from right to left?

The chat sidebar is located by default on the right side like that of Facebook.

Changing the default position is not an easy task, mainly because the chat app is rendered completely by script with complex and dynamic elements position.

Starting from version 2.3 of JChatSocial it's possible to use the module positionment to manage exactly where chat will be rendered.

Choosing an arbitrary position for chat sidebar can lead to unexpected issues, especially if the chat managed as a module is assigned to a position with not enough space.

Using version 2.3 and above of JChatSocial that offers alternative positionment through Joomla module, ensure that the module has enough space to contain all elements needed by chat. You can disable group chat or chat users list to save space if not needed.
