Solved New Chatbox

Post by Shadow on February 4th 2015, 4:49 pm

New Chatbox
Dear members

For few months, we had many problems with our current Chatbox. Many of you complained about the chatbox, that is perfectly normal! That's why, our technicians decided to rework all the chatbox!

There is no big design change, just few improvements Wink However, the code is not the same. It should solve all issues we had and you will enjoy chatting with your members

Of course, the chatbox is still is under beta tests. So, we might have some bugs with the chatbox. It would be wonderful you could report those problems so that we can improve the chatbox as much as possible Very good

In addition, we have a new command /help so that you will know all the chatbox commands Wink You just have to enter /help or click on the following button:



Then, a popup will appear with an explanation of the commands. Those commands depend on your status and permissions on the forum:



Now you can chat grrr!!!!!

The Godfather wrote:Hello,

We currently have a technical problem of very significant scalability CPU of the servers following an optimization of the chatbox to solve problems you reported on it for awhile. And to be honest, henceforth, the Chatbox uses the same technology as the notifications of the forum rather than sending constant requests.
This theoretically allows to considerably lighten the load and increase performance. We also have the opportunity to add a Help button that displays the commands in the chatbox to those who desire to know each according to their permissions.

We are working hard to find a viable technical solution to this rising burden though our local simulation were good, however, we are talking about millions of forums and only a full-scale test could allow us to make adjustments. :rose:

We are aware of the technical problems and inconveniences this causes. Nevertheless, you can imagine that if we could have done otherwise, we would have. We have a long night of work ahead of us, the pizzas are ordered and the coffeemaker is running at full speed so don't worry.

Certainly some malfunctions persist, but we're on it. Also, know that we are really far from the stage on these kinds of suggestions (why not give us the choice between such and such ... etc.) / Currently, the goal is to get you out a stable and functional chatbox. Wink

In this sense, we need your support and that this topic remains clean without reports that set us on the wrong track.

Wait for the green light for the new patch to be released to give us your feedback. However, at present, there's no need to post to say that you too have the same problem because we already know and that only extends this unique topic for nothing

After stabilization server load will be ok which will solve a lot of problems that you are currently experiencing.

Thank you for your understanding and we apologize for the inconvenience :rose:

It's quite broken at out forum. As in we can type in the textbar but when we press send or enter, the messages just aren't send. So far every user that has logged in to the cbox (5 people) has come across the same issue

Yeah, the forum I go to is having the same problem with messages not appearing. Also the "Archives" button causes the chatbox to turn into a dark blue box with a dark button in the top left saying "return to index" which makes the forum appear inside the chatbox.

For what I have seen while chat is going on and you look at the archives the refreshing is disabled while you are viewing the archives. When you close the archives, all new messages appear

Your CSS glows and colors should still work everywhere else in the forum, but the chat.

Actually this is something I personally like since I cannot stare into a chat with the glows of many users. for some reason it bothers my sight. And the messages do refresh.

Sadly all the Archives button does for me now is refresh the chat.
