    Default Chat Room up and running

    Have fun! The chat room is now up and running. It has much more features than the previous chat package, I think you'll like it. As always, let me know if you have problems, I'll get to it as soon as I can. I've tested it, it works fine in IE and Mozilla.

    Hey Vicky, mebbe I'm just retarded (quite likely) but when I click on the CHAT button I get another page with just the forum headers down to the menu and the news blurb. This is using IE at work. Thoughts?

    Ok, I'm most definately retarded. If I wait long enough I get a big blank window with a 'Float' button under it and the site footers of course. I guess I will continue to wait and see what else shows up. Thanks.

    jab, did it start working? I just tried it, and it stalled at the loading stage. I did a page reload, and it came right up. Weird. I'll hunt around, try to figure out why its doing that.

    If you didn't get in, try opening chat, then doing a page reload.....

    I found that once the page opened I needed to register in the chat room with a password before I could type messages. Otherwise, I got a response back to all of my posts that said "You are not allowed to speak in this room" Once I registered it went away.

    Cheers,

    Oskaar
    Is it tasty . . . precious?

    Nope, never got that far. I get a large empty box on the screen and a little float button on the bottom. I have waited over an hour and nothing. I tried reloading as you suggested with the same result. If I try to click the float button at the bottom I get a javascript error stating:

    Line: 374
    Char: 1
    Error: 'document.cs' is null or not an object
    Code: 0
    URL: http://www.gotmead.com/index.php?opt...03&action=chat
    In case it helps any I am using IE 5.50.4807.2300CO, 128-bit, SP2.

    Hmm. I'm running 6.0. I don't use IE much anymore, switched to Mozilla. I'm guessing that your Java is out of date for this app.

    You might want to download a new Java engine...you can download the upgrade here: http://www.java.com/en/download/windows_automatic.jsp

    The download will start automatically when you hit the page.

    Let me know if that fixes it. I'm guessing since you're running a backlevel version of IE, it is running an old Java version too.

    Yeah that's kinda what I figured. However, since I am at work and the InfoSec nazis will have my head for install software I will have to live with 'no chat for you' at work. Then when I get home to my nice cozy copy of firefox and a large mazer I can relax.

    Thanks.

    Hmm.. Even after registering a nickname and logging on with that in a few different clients, I get:
    #GotMead Cannot join channel (+j) - Members only
    Any ideas on how to remedy this?

    Ranna, did you log in with the nickname you use here? This system is keyed off your forum name.

    I've tried the default, Ranna_GMF, and registered Ranna, and it gives me the same reply for both.

    Edit: I suppose I should probably talk to EveryWhereChat about this instead of bothering you :o) Thank you for putting the chat up, Vicky!
