IP.Chat help!

Regarding the error problem I experienced with this installation of IP.Chat:

Well, I received a response from Giuseppe Casagrande from IPS Support. Apparently, when you delete the original default forum skin (ID: 1), that the IPB system causes an error, a bug, that affects versions of IPB 3.0.5, at least, that's the way I understand it from the response I received. Apparently, this bug has been fixed in version 3.0.5.

I'm just wondering why this has never been mentioned before.

This chat bites. After uploading the files to the directories required, there is no option to install this in the ACP. There are no settings in ACP. And nowhere to enter in the chat key. This was just

Actually, you're incorrect. IP.Shoutbox is an official IPS release and it's released by IPS Resources. Check out the information at IPS Resources. I'm just not bothering with either of these releases

I think we shall wait on beta 5, maybe 8 or RC1 to get it work. :-)

Although, it is frustrating how you've based your opinion that IP.Chat has "installation problems" that deem it unusable on a beta - it's this sort of thing that makes me wonder if it's worth releasing public betas at all if people clearly don't understand the concept.

Please do not let those who "do not understand the concept" get you down or discourage you from sharing beta products like this in the future. I, for one, very much appreciate having an early look at IP.Chat. I enjoy being able to provide feedback in the way of suggestions and bug reports before a final version of a product is released.

Recommendation if you're getting the "CSTART" errors would be to edit the /admin/applications_addon/ips/chat/modules_public/chat.php file, and remove the @ sign from in front of the three(?) file_get_contents lines. That will disable error suppression and give a better error when you go into the chat, assuming display_errors is turned on.

Most of what I have seen is allow_url_fopen problems, as has been mentioned. Oh, and people not uninstalling the old chat services.

Remember, the version should say 1.0.0 Beta 2 after you re-install.. If it still says 3.0.4.. You did it wrong.

Mark, if I sounded impertinent, you have my sincere apologies, sir. That wasn't my intent. I submitted a support ticket and there apparently was a bug. IPS Support explained that I must have deleted the original default skin and that was why I was getting the error when I tried to setup IP.Chat.

On another note: there seems to be an error when clicking on the "Reply" button attached to any message here in this topic. I get the following error message:

[#103133] NO_SUCH_TOPIC

AtariAge,

Well, it's working for me. I ended up sending in a support ticket on this issue as I did not know if it would be covered by support. However, they were kind enough to fix this problem for me and ended up addressing my problem.

Good, glad to hear it's working for you now. :)

I'm glad as well. If I knew that these installation problems with these add-ons had to do with deleting the original default skin (something that wasn't apparent to myself, nor to the community nor IPS staff) then I could have saved myself a lot of chest pains and headaches. :lol:

If you refresh do you have the same problem?

Can you also PM me FTP access to your site please? I'll add some logging to help identify the cause of that error.


yes! back online again :thumbsup: thank you

the funny thing is that I always tell my member to refresh the page if they see preblems, I even have a notification message that reminds them to do so, but I don't do it myself and I always forget to do it (w00t) (w00t)

what a hypocrite

EDIT: no the room is not loading, I've cleared my cache and it's not loading

You can solve that by putting this in htaccess:

php_value allow_url_fopen on
php_value allow_url_include 1


I found that this didn't work on my host - it caused an internal server error, but creating a php.ini file in the directory where index.php is located with the following in it worked.

allow_url_fopen = on;
allow_url_include = 1;

One of my Forum Moderators related a new problem to me regarding the chat. This is the problem:

1. Upon entering the chat, after acknowledging the rules, we're allowed to enter the chat.
2. Upon typing a message, hitting enter, chatbox just goes to next line without displaying the message; when "Post Message" is pressed, the chat kicks you out of the chatroom to the original default screen where the forum rules are displayed (if you have created them for the chatroom).

It is a neverending loop, even if you refresh.

CJOIN-0: I've done a little debugging and believe I've found the cause of this issue. I am working on an update that should hopefully address this issue, but we will require a little more testing first.

I too am still getting the [#CJOIN-0] error with the beta 3 :(


Me too. On beta 2 i don't have it.
