    I can confirm this as well - after the chat is loaded on iOS 6, no new messages appear in the chat window.
  2. Yuxi added a post in a topic: ok is this reboot is mandatory for everyday?   

    It's even worse now because the licensing server appears to be down, and people who get disconnected can't rejoin due to the 5-user limit. :angry:

    I actually like IP.Chat despite its lack of multiple-room support and such, but the frequent stability and connection issues are really ruining it for my community.
  3. Yuxi added a comment: Error when Embedding Image with Quote in URL   

    I mean single quote, or apostrophe (').

    Error link: [url="https://dl.dropbox.com/u/9227529/test%272.png"]https://dl.dropbox.c.../test'2.png[/url] (it automatically encoded the link in this post, but if you replace the filename with test'2.png instead of test%272.png, embedding the image gives an error)
    Working link: [url="https://dl.dropbox.com/u/9227529/test.png"]https://dl.dropbox.c...227529/test.png[/url]

    If the URL contains an apostrophe and is not properly url-encoded it will give that error.

    Error when Embedding Image with Quote in URL
    When I try to embed an image in a post (the URL ends in .png), I get this error:

    [quote]You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community.[/quote]

    It turns out that the image in question had a quote character in the file name. The image worked after removing the quote.

    Should the URL parser take quotes and other "weird" characters into account?

  5. Yuxi added a post in a topic: ACP Multiple Forum Creation and Inefficiencies   

    I'm not sure how feasible a "batch create forum" feature would be (say you enter a comma-delimited list of forum names instead of one name and it will create multiple forums at once using the same set of settings), but I will put it out there for consideration. :tongue:

    After using IPB for several years, one frustrating thing that has always stuck out to me is the process of creating forums in the ACP:

    1) Copying permissions sets
    There is an option in the "edit permissions" page of an existing forum to copy the permission set from another forum. Currently this feature is not available on forum creation, so you have to check off the permission grid manually every time or leave it blank and use the "edit permissions" page to copy existing permission sets to new forums one at a time.

    If the "copy permissions from" dropdown can be added to the forum creation process, that would make it much faster. Or better yet, an independent feature to copy permissions from one forum to multiple other forums at once would be good.

    2) Default parent forum
    When you navigate within a subforum in the ACP and create a new forum there, the parent forum dropdown always defaults to Root. Can you make it so this dropdown defaults to the forum in which the "new forum" button is clicked?

    Both the above seem like minor inconveniences, but together they make creating multiple forums and subforums a painful and tedious experience.

    Thank you for your time!

    Not being able to change the navigation bar without code edits has been THE most frustrating part of using IPB for me. Can't wait for 2.3! :D

    where is skin_ipchat -> chatRoom change ??? i can't seem to find it.

    ACP -> Look and Feel -> Manage Skin Sets & Templates -> (the skin you're using) -> scroll down to Chat (Global)
