Hello everyone,

Has somebody managed to get the chat system working yet ?

nope I am using a different one.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

I was the original and loudest complainant about Chat not working, but the team seem to have sorted out my problems.

More importantly, I had to do battle with my hosts to get their mod_security settings tweaked just right.

I haven't had reason for complaint for some time now, but I must also admit that I haven't stumbled across the same problems that moimaim is experiencing. Can't understand the accented character problem because I use a Portuguese keyboard and insert accented characters constantly without any apparent problems.

However, in the interests of 'Community' I shall revisit the Chat areas once again and see if I can come up with something - FOR or AGAINST.

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

The only problem I remember having when I used it was after so many posts it would lock up the browser.

Hi everyone. I have a similar problem with the chat/im system. The chat seems to work perfectly, but the im system doesn't. That's ok, but I would like to remove the im part of the chat lobby.

Can anyone point me to where the chat page gets the im part of the page?

I am using ocp 3.1.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

You could remove everything from line 44 onwards in the CHAT_LOBBY template.
Line 44 is:

Code

{+START,IF,{$NOT,{$IS_GUEST}}}


Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Thanks, Chris. No one uses the IM system as it never notifies the other member of the invitation, so I thought it would be good to rid myself of further support requests.  :)
