We could type in the chat field but, it would not display when posted,
also everyone was confused about how this chat area worked.

Maybe a video soon, if needed and requested.

 :| The mail issue is likely a server issue. I'd ask the server admin why PHP can't send out emails.
If PHP can't send email in the normal way, it is possible to configure it to connect directly to an SMTP server via the site configuration.

These should fix the chat problems…

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 Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • 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 Composr 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.
