    If you have trouble getting into the Chat Room, make sure you have the latest version of Java.

    Download it here for Windows XP:
    or here:

    Download for Windows Vista:

    For Mac users, download for your OS :

    If that doesn't work, try using a different internet browser. I like Mozilla Firefox because it has given me the least problems.

    Download it free here for PC:

    Here for MAC OS X:

    Along with java, make sure your pop up blocker is off if you're going into the floating chat room. No wonder it's been so lonely in the chat room. I just sit around there and wait and wait.... :p

    I finally got into the chat room but no one was threre

    :hehe: I finally figured out that I had Java already installed, took forever to get firefox, then find the site, then find the chat room, but by the time I got there the person who was there had left.....ho hum:shrug:

    :eek: It finally happened to me (plug-in needed/blank blue box)! To be honest, I did a few things but pretty sure this is the one that did the trick. :hehe:

    IF you have the sun icon at the bottom right of your screen, just right click and select "Open control panel" If you don't have the icon, go to Program Files/Java/jre6/bin and run javacpl.exe. It manually opens the control panel.

    Then click on the "Advanced" tab, click on "Java Plug-in" and remove the check in the box that says "Enable the next generation java plug-in". Click Apply and restart your browser. I got right in after that. :)

    Let me know if it worked for you.

    smilies and more problem

    Anyone having problems with smilies? When i click on more i only get a small box with a few. I used to get a whole screen and when i would choose the category i wanted there was a close at the bottom. Now when i choose to pick a category or enlarge it i lose my message.

    Oh my gosh, i got chat to work!!!!!!

    Don't even ask me to tell you how I did it! I have been trying on and off for months to get back in to chat. I finally did it tonight and no one is there!

    Something about enabling something in Java and restarting and restarting again and again after each attempt.

    I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack! Lisa :thumbs:
