I have 2 questions I've had on my mind that I would like answers to if possible.

1) Is it possible to get a pop-out chat room? A user on one of my sites asked if there was a way to get a chat-room thing so she could just have the chatroom open without loading the whole site as it slows down her computer when she's doing several things at once.

2) I was reading through the admin mail on another one of my sites, and I've had over 50 emails about an email failing to be sent...something about 'x email doesn't exist'.....yet, I went through all my members registered, and no one has such an email.

I have 0 idea what it's about, but I've gotten about 50 in the last 48 hours.

1- Possibly, if you give a URL to the chat room with &wide_high=1 on the end. However it's unlikely this will consume substantially less resources.

2- That is the confirmation message being sent back to a spammer, telling them they have filled in the contact form and it submitted okay. We have it there to comply with an accessibility standard that states anyone who fills in a contact form on a site should receive an email back, confirming they sent it and what they had asked. Try enabling the "Use CAPTCHA on feedback page" option.

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. The 2nd question was answered well.

As for the 1st, how would I put that?

And another question I just thought the chatroom, it records all the 'x has entered the chat room' 'x has exited the chat room' anytime someone goes onto the site because of the shoutbox. Any way to change that?

Ok, another question I have.
I want to move 2 of my sites from 1 server to another, as the original server just doesn't support my sites well. How can I do it in such a way that I can retain the site's information, databases etc.

Server1 is hosted by heliohost
Server2 is hosted by 1&1

@Ethan I just would like to point out that it would help more people if you could put each of your questions in a separate post and title them with the question because you ask very good questions that others may be looking for the answers to in the future and it will be easier for them to find if you do.

For the one question about the popup chat surf to the chat url and copy it and what chris said to the end "&wide_high=1" and that may work he says.
