Ok I may have missed it because there are A LOT of posts...

-EVERY TIME it refreshes itself it jumps to the MIDDLE of the above messages. How do I stop that?

-Also there is a BOX with what SHOULD be some image, for the smilies and also next to the date/time. When I hover it says ARCHIVE

Please let's not even compare FB chat to anything useful, as it doesn't deliver offline messages.

But this oft-requested feature should become very easy once HTML 5's <audio> tag becomes common. However, right now it's very difficult, but the solution has been posted earlier in the thread. Not for the timid though, as it requires many manual edits.

Has there been any coding done that could make this fine chat by Valter into an app? I would love for my iphone and android users to be able to contribute to the chat via an app.

This is a brilliant mod. How would i make the FULL chatbox open in a small popup window, with just the chatbox and no header or anything else.

Would be more active if like that i think.
If it aint broke -------------------- Don't fix it!!

Some of the members have been complaining that they keep on getting this error, however I've never been able to get it myself. It's been showing up in both IE and FF. I'm running 4.1 SP 2.

Anybody else have this issue? Any idea what's causing it?
