Solved Clearing the Chat Box archive?

Post by Jellydonut on February 11th 2012, 4:54 pm

Is there a way to clear the chatbox archive on forumotion forums? Is there any way to make it unviewable to anyone other than mods?

You can clear it using either '/clear' or '/cls' command.

I know, but you can still view the past chats in the archive

When you enter /clear, it should delete all messages even the archived ones.

Oh. Weird.
Last night someone was talking about someone else, and I'm sure I cleared the chat a few times, but this morning the member saw what was said about her and idk how.

Are you using the original Forumotion chatbox?

When you typed the command did it show as messages cleared?

Also, when you hit on archives do you see the past chats?

When I cleared, it did clear
Someone claims she saw the past chats, so maybe after I left people were talking about her and they forgot to clear
But I would think it would auto refresh overnight...

It does not clear, without the clear command.
It has a limit of messages being stored in the archive, after which previous messages are lost.

Auto Refresh is to receive new messages.

Ooh
How come when I log on after not being on for a few hours, there are no messages, and there's no clear command?

Well anyways, I guess people must have been talking about her after I left, and they never cleared the chat/

Well, how will you see the clear command?
Maybe some chatbox moderator clears it.

I don't think they show up when you login after a while. Do they?
