    Today i have made some small updates to the mini chat (The bar at the bottom of the screen)

    1) Avatars now display correctly (If you have one!).

    2) Desktop Notifications. If you are using google chrome, you will see a bar appear at the top of the screen asking you if you wish to allow Desktop Notifications for this site. Click 'Allow'. Now if you receive a message whilst browsing another site (Why would you do that?! :p ) Then you will receive a pop up box in the top right corner telling you that you have a new message, the message content, and who it is from.

    3) Chatting on a mobile device, or tablet can be painful, and is being worked on. For now, hopefully this will do.

    When browsing the site on a mobile or tablet (Also shows on desktop, but is useless to use) you will see a button in the bottom left of the chat bar like this:

    Clicking this link will open a new tab, which will list all members online in chat, and allow you to have one to one conversations with them properly, and smoothly. Here are some screenshots!

    That's it for now. Hope you all like, and happy chatting!

    A few people seem to be having issues which is odd but are being looked into

    Coffee 2sugars, can you send me a pm with your account password so I can log in as you and check some things . thanks
     
  11. I think it might be caused by Firefox. i am using Google Chrome at the moment and mini chat is working fine.
     
  12. Is there a way to put a photo onto chat? Someone asked me what kind of device I'm seeking. I don't know the name but I have a photo of it.
     
  13. No there's no way to upload images into chat but there is in Private mail.

  14. Yes Ma'am. Thank You
     
  15. Thanks for your hard work!
     
  16. Not reallt a good idea how to use the chat thing I've had 3 or 4 times when it looks like someone was starting a chat thing with me and somehow I just made the box with their names in disappear. They must think I am very rude and it was certainly no my intention to be.
     
  17. Same thing happens with me
     
  18. Thanks for all your hard work Admin! I love using the chat here, but only do so on my laptop.
     
  19. 3 cheers for Admin. Always doing the best for us all.

  20. Hi, When is the next update - I cannot get chat to work on any device - maybe it's just me...
     
  21. If you are using and a tablet or phone you need the CometChat app.
    There's no app for Windows devices.

    If it won't work on a laptop, try cleaning out your Cache
     

  22. Thank you, we'll see what happens
