posticon Chat in beta test


Please report bugs and whatnot in this topic.

The new chat feature is an instant messaging system for RB users. You should have a small box on the bottom right corner of the screen reading "Friends".

You need to have added at least a friend to use it.

It will only work with somewhat recent browsers (IE7 is too old).

This feature has taken Lesa, me and and a team of testers several months of work and hopefully it's good enough.

It will continue to be updated. Multi-way chat rooms come to mind (right now, it's only one-on-one chat).

There should be only one chat box per user, even if they have several tabs/windows of RB open. If for some reason you have no chat box at all, across all tabs/windows of RB, reloading the page should make it pop again. Please make sure the chat box is not somewhere in a window before reporting that it poofed.

The best browsers for this feature (and Internet generally) are Chrome and Firefox, although it works with IE8.

Enjoy!

Edit: I disabled chat for all non-premium users until I sort out some performance issues. Shouldn't be too long.

Re: Chat in beta test


It's an awesome feature, while testing some of us have already discovered ways to use the friends-chat to speed up and improve Runboards support. emoticon

Re:


Awesome feature! I'll admit I thought I was having some type of pop-up attack or something at first until I clicked the BETA button. My only suggestion thus far might be to put on it somewhere that it's a Runboard chat so that others don't have the initial panic that I did :P

Great job everyone! Keep up that fantastic work.

Re: Chat in beta test


Thank you for your feedback, Tim. emoticon We just changed the "Please add some friends" message to say:

quote:

Please add some Runboard friends to chat with (hint: click on someone's screen name and choose "Add as a friend").



Hopefully this will help prevent others from worrying (sorry about that), and if someone has friends in their friend list, I hope seeing their usernames will be enough to show that it's a Runboard feature. emoticon

Re:


Sorry guys but I can't find this chat box in my profile using IE8.

EDIT:

I found the chat box, but the trick is that in IE8 you must have compatibility mode set to "off" or "unclicked" for the chat box to show-up. Otherwise it won't show.

Cool feature indeed. emoticon

Thanks, Jalal. Hopefully Thor will be able to get it to work in compatibility mode.

Have I ever mentioned how much I hate IE? emoticon

Re: Chat in beta test


Woohooo! This is a wonderful way of connecting to friends even better. I already love it to bits!

Thanks, Lesa and Thor, for all the work you put into this!
