Accessing chatbox thru IE

Post by 4evernewbie on September 29th 2010, 7:08 am

Some of our users can't access the chatbox or see the archives when they are using Internet Explorer. The chatbox works perfectly using firefox, chrome and safari. Is there a (minimum) version required for IE users in order not to encounter the same problem?

Thanks.

Well i use IE8 as my main browerser and i have no problems with the chat box.. so be sure to tell your members to update their browswer. It could be they are still useing the older versions of IE such as IE7 or even IE6. WOW..lol

Hi,

There is no minimal standard to access any of forumotion sites, including the Chatbox.
It is a well known fact that the oldness & poor coding of any IE just simply doesn't cut it in the modern age.
IE 6 will work, but it will look very screwed up as it doesn't understand modern coding, IE7 is also bad, as it's out dated and doesn't understand the majority of modern coding, whilst IE8 is the most recent and I'd say the best of all IE's publicly available.

The standard of coding that ForuMotion uses is quite relevant to today,even though it isn't true phpbb coding, it's still up to date.

Bottom line - IE sucks, I'd ask your members to update their IE to IE8 & confirm that it's in comparability mode Wink

Thanks for the replies! Smile

I guess everybody's right that some of my users are still using the old versions of IE's (for whatever reasons it serves them, lol).
