Chat broken? Edit

I don't know if other wikis are having trouble with thier chatrooms, but everytime I try to open it up on the South Park Wiki, it crashes the browser. I've tried with Safari, Firefox, and IE. And it's not just me; other users have also complained about not being able to open it.

Can anybody help me out? NeocarleenTalk 08:01, November 2, 2011 (UTC)

This is an ongoing problem for many wikis. The latest discussion about it can be found at: w:c:community:User blog:Flamefang/Chat: What's killing it?. For future reference, this Help Wiki is where Help documents are stored. It is not the place to seek assistance. In fact, it might have been days or weeks before anyone happened along here to see your request. You should seek assistance at the Community Central forums. — SpikeToronto 23:52, November 2, 2011 (UTC)

Posting in chat Edit

How do I post in chat? The page doesn't say, there are no buttons, and if I press enter my test erases but on the conversation above, my post is not shown. Shinigami CHOP! —This unsigned comment is by Puppy1 (wallcontribs) 00:47, April 24, 2012‎. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

It’d be better, Puppy, to ask this question at w:c:community:Forum:Support Requests, the support forums at the Community Central Wiki. For future reference, this Help Wiki is where Help documents are stored. It is not the place to seek assistance. In fact, it might have been days or weeks before anyone happened along here to see your request. Hope that helps! — SpikeToronto 04:54, April 26, 2012 (UTC)

Okay, thanks. I have it semi-fixed, it works on Internet Explorer for me. Its actually an advantage now, Shinigami CHOP! —This unsigned comment is by Puppy1 (wallcontribs) 23:26, April 29, 2012. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Putting in ChatEdit

how do you put a chat in a new wiki. I dont know how. P.S its my new Wiki not somebody elses —This unsigned comment is by Agirlxoxo (wallcontribs) 00:13, January 20, 2013‎. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

It can be done by adding a <chat/> tag.

Enablement historyEdit

It is possible for admins to enable or disable chat at Special:WikiFeatures. I would like to know if there is a way to view a history of changes. For example, let's say a bureaucrat enables a chat on his wiki, but one of several people they have appointed as administrators keeps disabling it.

How could the bureaucrat find out who disabled it, and when they did it? Does wikia keep a history of these changes which bureaucrats can view? Otherwise it becomes difficult to keep the chat active and to institute consequences if admins disable it without permission against policies. +Yc 05:41, March 14, 2013 (UTC)

Enabling and disabling features creates log entries in Special:Log/wikifeatures. (These also show up in Special:RecentChanges.)    ǝsʞpɐןǝ  (message wall)  09:47, 14 March 2013

question Edit

Adding functionalityEdit

Is it possible to add functions to the chat, such as a /me type of feature, bots, change the welcom text, spam filters etc?

Screwed up syntax in chat Edit

The chat has been very screwed up for me recently. First of all, I can't access the options menu in the chat anymore, and secondly, in one chat, and only one (w:c:bleach:Special:Chat), I get some very odd syntax after the welcome message that looks like
"<img style="display:none;" src="" onload="if (!loaded&&!$('script[src$=\'Chat.js/load.js\']').length) {var loaded = true;var b=document.createElement('script');b.setAttribute('src','http://callofduty.wikia.com/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Chat.js/load.js&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript');b.setAttribute('type','text/javascript');document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(b);}" />"

Please ask this question on the forums. There's actually a very relevant thread you should check out. Thisismyrofl (talk) 18:19, July 10, 2013 (UTC)

Small chat?Edit

A few days ago, I went into chat on the computer, but it was a very small window. The maximise button was not allowing me to click it to make it big. It's the same on other chats. Any ideas as to what I do? User:Sorrelflower/Sig 21:20, September 27, 2013 (UTC)

Bug? Edit

Whenever I try to go on chat, only the typing box shows and nothing else... I think this is a bug or something... HELP!
