Solved Chat room issues

Post by spirit09 on July 30th 2011, 10:42 pm

Hi all

I have the 'standard chat room' from forumotion, but have 3 ways to access it.

1-via menu tab (which opens another screen)
2-via corner tab (the one that was tuesday tip)
3-via [join the chat] at the bottom of home page

the only one working is number 3....

How can I fix the others please?

I was just about to make a topic for this Forumotion chat problem. The one that goes into another tab works for me, so does the one at the bottom. However the popup one at the bottom screen does not work when you press login, however the other buttons work. This is so werid!

That is the same for me, guess I am not describing the problem very well Confused so:

the only place my members can access and log into chat is [join the chat] the other two open but you cannot log in - is that the same for you Suuki?

Well if your using custom design chats like the pop up chat you need to go into the chat code and change it

eg...
Code:
<div id="chatbox_ret_cont" onmouseout="" onclick="" onmousever="" style="border-top: 1px solid rgb(148, 11, 11); border-left: 1px solid rgb(148, 11, 11); z-index: 10000; -moz-border-radius: 20px 0pt 0pt 0pt; background-color: #e3e2e2; position: fixed; bottom: 0pt; right:40pt; border-color: #e3e2e2;"><div onclick="(document.getElementById('chatbox_ret').style.display=='block')?my_setcookie('chatbox_ret','0',0,0):my_setcookie('chatbox_ret','1',1,0); $('#chatbox_ret').toggle('normal');" style="font-size: 26px; font-family: 'trebuchet ms',serif; cursor: pointer; padding: 0px;"><span id="chatbox_ret_online" style="color: black;"><img src="http://www.harpgamer.com/images/btnChatJoin.jpg" alt="chat" width="117" height="26" /></span><span id="chatbox_ret_offline" style="color:Black;"></span></div><iframe scrolling="no" frameborder="0" onload="if(cb_new) { cb_start(); cb_new=0; }" style="width: 700px; height: 250px; display: none;" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" name="chatbox_ret" id="chatbox_ret" src="http://your forum address/chatbox/index.forum?">


Code:
<center><table height="82" width="100%" background="http://.jpg" style="background-color:transparent;border:#222222 2px solid; -moz-border-radius: 4px 4px 4px 4px; -webkit-border-radius: 4px 4px 4px 4px; padding:2px"><tr><td><center><iframe frameborder="0" width=100% height=300 src=http://your forum address/chatbox/index.forum?  marginheight=2 marginwidth=2 scrolling=auto allowtransparency=yes name=Chatbox style="border:#505050 1px solid"></iframe></center></td></tr></table></center>

thank you, I need to find the tuesday tip from Darren to remember where I put the pop up chat code (stupid I know) but if you see on my forum there is a link in the menu for chat also - this opens a new window for chat - this has the same issue of log in not working.....

so I can use either of the links, or do I just change the end of the code??

many thanks for your patience

i would just change the link your using phpbb3 so i guess it should be in the forum widgets because people using phpbb2 will have it in the footer templates
