Just installed this chat on a new forum as below:

Problem:
No chats show up if I use IE but all show up fine using Firefox?

Any ideas of a fix?

Regards

Question Weird Issue

VBDev, great mod, so thank you very much
The issue I have is that when collapsing the chatbox (I only have 5 visible on collapse) the 5th entry always shows at the top. (Newest should be at top)
I have tried to change a few of the display settings but still the 5th entry pops up on top.
If the chatbox is not collapsed the entries appear fine.
This is not a major issue, but it is weird. Any suggestions? I have added a img of the error. Look at the time stamp to see what I mean. (No the entry is not a duplicate of the 4th one)
Oh and before I forget, there is also an extra line spaced between each entry on the collapsed chatbox where as on the open one, it displays fine. I'm using firefox, but it also does the same in Chrome, but in IE it collapses to so no entries.

Thanx in advance.

I installed this, and it works.

However, i find it irritating that you have to click refresh before other users posts are displayed.

Why not let them be pushed out to the client?

You can set the refresh rate, so just set it shorter, like 2 seconds?

About my question, I dont have any other styles installed, just the one I use, to prevent problems..

Any idea in what template or php to search to play with the settings?
Older versions worked just fine, but than again, also updated to 3.7.3 just now...

EDIT: never mind... I needed to revert a customized template.. now its fixed!

would be great if users could hide the chatbox completely. That is really my only concern.

Some users simply doesn't want this, and for those, a click on a X in the upper corner should hide it 4ever. untill they enable it in their CP again.

is this possible?? or perhaps a feature request?

I know they can minimize it, but it will still be partly visible.

I am using vb 3.7.3 - if I upgrade to the latest version (1.0) of the chat box, the chat no longer works - when you input text, nothing is rendered - the whole chat area itself remains blank. Reverting back to any previous version fixes the problem.
