    Chat Box

    A new site Chat Box is ready for use by all members. It's located in the Forum page at the bottom of the page.

    1) You can click on the black arrow on the right of the box to open the chat in a new page.
    2) There are buttons on the left of the box to choose the chat channel.

    Most member will only see two at the moment (General and BSL)

    Enjoy and please give me some feedback.

    FYI - The old chat room will be disabled.

    Worked just fine for me.

    Curious if having it on the main forums page, rather than having to click to go to it, will increase the usage/traffic.

    I moved it to the top of the site, and it displays on the forum list, in each forum and in the threads. Hopefully the more people see it might get more usage out of it.

    If people prefer I can move it back down to the bottom, but for those who don't even want to see it just click on the arrow on the top right of the chat box to minimize.

    There is no separate room/page so anyone logged onto the site is participating in the chat.

    The sound/alert of a new message can be disabled by clicking the speaker button in the chat box. But by leaving it on you will know when someone is in chat.

    I like the chat function right up on top of the thread I'm looking at where I can see it. Who knows, I may even be tempted to use it!

    I turned on a feature of the chat box that alerts chat users when a new thread is created.

    Is there a way to disable the sound permanently, instead of having to disable on each page?

    I didn't realize that it didn't stay disabled if you moved around the site. I turned that off, as it can be annoying.

    I am trying to find a way to disable chat for myself. Every time I click a new thread or a new page I get an error that results in about 10 to 20 second delay before the chat loads, which greatly affects my desire to browse the forum. I have tried the minimize tab you point out on top right but this only results in the chat box being smaller and it still has to load up go thru the 10 to 20 second error message process before I am able to to do anything else.
    I have tried from both work and home and the error message I get happens every time regardless of my location. any advice or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    thank you
    dave

    What browser are you using?

    IE 10 does have some issues with vbulletin software.
