Exclamation Chat Room Access Info (Important) - Temp access modification

We are making some temporary access modifications to the Chat Room that will hopefully only last a few days...

Shortly, you will see a pop-up window when you go to the chat room. This is an additional security measure outside our forum software that you will need to login to gain your normal chat room access. When you see the pop-up box, you will need to enter "chat" to both the login and password field.

IF you do not see a pop-up box when you try to enter our chat room and do not enter chat, you may need to make sure you don't have any type of pop-up blocker blocking PTO.

Hopefully we will have this fixed shortly so it'll be a non-issue for you.

Thanks,
David

I've tried to login, but it keeps rejecting me. Is the log in for the chat room the same as what we use to log in to PTO?

Hi,

Wickzfinest:

I too had problems accessing Chat yesterday and inquired about it and was told by a poster that it could be a java problem.

I have tried your solution of chat/chat for user name and password and it worked like a charm. Thank you for your help. Just curious,how did you figure this out?

Mixtalia: I was going to upgrade the java, now I do not have too, as Wickzfinest's solution worked for me. Sorry, it did not work for you.

The java site is www.java.com. I noticed that my present java is Version 6, Update 29 and the latest one is Version 6, Update 30.

I don't know why I wanted to get a solution to this problem so badly cause there is never anyone in the Chat area. I believe there were a small group in the chat room over a month ago. Maybe people are not aware of the chat area??

Hi Wickzfinest:

I just read the admin's response "carefully" at the top of the thread - he is the one that mentioned chat/chat for login and password for Chat area. Duh

A blonde moment! hehe

Trying to get in the chat room. I've followed the "chat" instructions but I get a screen with my PTO username then it comes up invalid username/password. My Java is updated. :-/

The access changes described in this thread are temporary and they are in addition to the usual requirement of 2 weeks membership and 25 valid posts before you can access the chat feature.
