Chat seems to be broken. Also, German

    As the title implies, when I went onto the chat it was white (rather than black) and no longer displaying messages. Where the names normally are, there were four 'picture failed to load' pictures (you hopefully know the type), when it said there were five users in the room.

    As well as this, the chat refers to itself as ET-Chat v3.0.6. Also, everything's in German. The rooms were named 'Room for all', 'Room for admins' and 'Room password protected'.. This is on Google Chrome, version 27.0.1453.116 m

    EDIT: It's started displaying names again, and the right numbers of them.

    I get the entire room in white, with German, as spiney describes. Using a Mac OS X 10.8.4 Google Chrome.

    I would guess that this is due to the updates that are currently being made.

    Somethings gone drastically wrong - but I am not sure why as nothing has changed coding wise. I will likely have to take offline.

    Just a stab in the dark - maybe it's something to do with the overall theme/format settings? Or do you mean absolutely nothing?

    No its not that. Nothing at all has been done, it should not have been affected in anyway. A re-upload of the files for it didn't work either.

    Both apple and google are tax avoiding swindlers, so the awesomeness of CN must be rebelling against their heresy.

    In all seriousness, if we want to know whether it's do with formatting or not, we should check if chat works normally on the mobile version of the site - it has a different format. If chat is screwed up on the mobile version too, it's likely that the problem is not to do with formatting.

    Chat has now been taken offline. :( It is sadly not cost effective to repair as it was a bodge job in the first place, something I did years ago and I haven't been able to update since as it is in german and the newer versions don't integrate with MyBB.

    However don't panic! I think I may have found a much better alternative, that comes with a inbuilt integrator to our forum software. The only downside is that is costs so I am looking at the options at the moment.

    Internet relay chat. Could have a CN channel on one of the many networks already working or could host a completely private one alongside with the forum. Could be accessed with separate IRC clients and/or a web-based client that could be linked as "Chat" on the forums.

    The possibilities are almost endless with IRC. It's very basic system with a lot of customization possibilities.

    A very basic example: @Quakenet#carpenoctem.
    Code:

    It looks interesting, however the other chat function I have found is also very impressive. I'll certainly bear this in mind though.

    You would have to download an IRC client to be able to access it.

    ... or just use the web-IRC I linked. That requires no downloads. Requires no zombies either but that seems to be a negative thing as chat usually had tens of visits during a day but the IRC channel has had only 4 visits in 4 days. All of those within the first day.

    I hope DoN finds us a new chat system relatively soon. I miss my daily dose of chatting.

    I am looking at Cometchat at the moment. Looks impressive and has a built in integrator with CN software.

    I will be going with Cometchat however all my funds at the moment are funnelled into moving. As soon as that is done I'll then look at paying for and installing Cometchat.
