I ran into an issue with the chat.  It's temporarily disabled until I can work out the kinks.

I'm not all that bothered to be honest, just letting people know that there are problems.

I think I got the chat sorted.

Even though the chatroom was working, there was some remnant 'glitched' code that I feared would eventually cause a problem.  Everything is clean and it looks like it's running smooth.

With the fix, you'll notice the # of users in the chatroom is now displayed next to the CHAT button in the top toolbar.  Example - CHAT (6).

The chatroom is always on, so what you say in it stays there for up to 3 days or 50 messages, whichever comes first.  Think of it as a sort of ShoutBox on steroids.   

As always, if you run into any errors/glitches/WTF's, post here and let me know.  Don't clutter up other threads with technical site discussions.

Neato

The link is there now and I can see the number against it, but it still doesn't say Chat... just the number.

... ok ...   :-\

I think I figured it out.  I believe the cookie manipulation I did to the site in order to help people with the 'unread messages' issue a few weeks ago seemed to prevent people from actually loading the site's new features.

The solution:
I've temporarily disabled global cookie storage.  This means that when you visit the site, instead of pulling up a cached version of the site, your web browser will download the new version of the site.

If you don't see the CHAT button, log out of the forum, then delete all of your temporary internet files (cache) from your web browser.

This also means that the 'unread messages' issue may start up again.  To be safe, I'll keep global cookies disabled until everyone confirms they can use the CHAT button.  Then I'll reactivate them to prevent the 'unread messages' issue from continuing.



EDIT:  Playing around with the server, it looks like the fix may not be instant for some.  If you've followed the directions above, but still don't see the CHAT button, give it 48 hours to sort itself out.  In the meantime, you can go directly into the chatroom here:  http://www.360fahrenheit.com/fahrenh1_forum1/chat/.

One of the changes I made ended up resetting everyone's personal options.

Check your profile PROFILE and make sure your "Look and Layout Preferences" are set the way you like.

If any of you guys are still not seeing the Chat link, try refreshing your browsers (hold Ctrl and press F5). That might sort it.
