phpBB & Jabber

I'll ask here first because I know some of you have used or are using
phpBB. I can't find any answers on the Web.

The current version of phpBB has Jabber integration. I've never used
Jabber. I understand it's an IM protocol. So out of curiosity I set it up
in a phpBB installation, and phpBB said it was configured successfully,

So I go to the site and there's no difference. What did I expect? I guess
I expected to see maybe a Jabber button, which when clicked would produce
a small window that looked strangely like a Gaim window, or something.

Instead I see nothing at all. I tried sending a PM to myself, but that
works just like before.

So has anyone used this before? What am I missing?

And what did you exactly expect?

Jabber is integrated with phpBB3 now, before you had to add it as a
What it does is allow for users to enter their Jabber information in
their profile and it then becomes available to other members at the
bottom of posts or by viewing their profile, so users can communicate
with each other using the network
Also, the board can send instant messages and board notices by
enabling Jabber in Jabber settings menu and setting the server

From Jabber's site:
- A decentralized network of IM services in which your messages are
not monitored by a big company like AOL, Microsoft, or Yahoo. You can
even run your own server!
- A set of stable standards for real-time communications, published by
the IETF and the XMPP Standards Foundation.
- Instant messaging the way it was meant to be!
