I'm not sure which sort of private chat you mean... I'm guessing you want a chat where users are able to select another user and chat in private with that user?

If so, it's a bit tricky using the existing components. One (easy) options is to open the private chat in a new browser window. This would just be a normal chat component, but with only the 2 or more users that are using it. The problem with that is that you're adding multiple connections to the server. Fine with only a few people, but the more users/connections you have, the closer you come to maxing out the user license on the server.

There was a pretty good thread about it at ultrashock as well, with a few different approaches you can check out:
