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


Download it here for Windows XP: http://www.java.com/en/download/index.jsp
or here: http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

Download for Windows Vista: http://java.com/en/download/windows_manual2.jsp

For Mac users, download for your OS : http://searchcgi.apple.com/cgi-bin/sp/nph-searchpre11.pl


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: http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/email_chat/mozillathunderbird.html

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

: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:
