Ok, so some notes on this...

 

Currently the site runs as SSL for everything, however, chat is a 3rd party system and does not currently support SSL encryption. There are discussions with the vendor regrading the addition of SSL in the next release. I suspect this will occur, however, for now you must observe the fact that your chat sessions will not be encrypted, and that you will need to perform a workaround in order to get chat to function.

 

Depending on your browser you may or may not need to accept unencrypted or "unsafe" scripts when accessing chat.  We will try and capture screenshots for each to illustrate what is required.

 

  • OSX Safari: Default configuration does not seem to require any additional steps.
  • OSX Google Chrome:

  • Linux Firefox:
    • post-105331-0-16229300-1383170659.jpg

 

If you could please attach a screenshot of any actions you need to take we can add it along with your OS here for others.

 

 

 

 

Using Chat:

Using chat should be pretty self explanatory, but there may be a couple of buttons that need explanation.

 

post-62591-0-39556000-1383500452.png

 

Above you will see a "bell" icon, this turns sound on/off, the "window" looking button will pop chat out into another tab or window so that you may continue surfing the site while remaining in chat simultaneously. If you do not "pop out" the chat window, you will still remained logged in until your inactivity timeout period has been reached. Should someone else enter you should hear a noise if sound is enabled, and you'll see a number above the chat link a page top indicating there are multiple people in chat.

So when I try using chat I do not get prompted for any actions to accept or decline unsafe scripts. The chat window opens and says "Please wait while we load the chatroom..." but it never completes. I am using FireFox Version 25.0 with a Windows 7 PC.

I have even set the mycotopia domain as an exception to my security settings and I still cannot access chat. Is there a resolution to this? Has anyone else seen this issue?

This is a local issue for you. I do not run Windows nor do I run those browsers, although I would expect them to be the same across platforms.

 

Basically you need to accept untrusted or insecure scripts as I pointed out in my post. I cannot tell you how or where to do this except for the screenshots that have been provided.  The site is HTTPS and chat is HTTP. Chat cannot and will not load if it's accessed via HTTPS, that is why you must accept the script, otherwise it'll "load" forever.

 

Firefox and Chrome should have a "shield" icon in the address bar when you try to access chat. That is how the screenshots depict entry. There may be another way by "trusting" Mycotopia.net or something I'm unsure -- some browsers don't even prompt. I assume that has to do with their specific security configuration though.

FWIW - the next major revision of chat should allow for https use.

This would be a good place to recommend using a VPN.

Ever seen this before? The part on the right hand side of the pic...."The IP.Chat room limit has been reached. You will not be able to join the chat room until some users first leave."

 

There are currently Zero users in chat.
