Hello, I have a few questions about the usage of the chat plugin which I will list below.
I am using the chat plugin and no matter what settings I use, it is recording and displaying every chat entry since the beginning of time.
The problem is that the site had over 1300 users visit on the first day, which caused the server to crash as every single chat from the whole day was loading when the chat loaded.
I see that there is a clear button, but that is manual and is not an ideal solution. Is there a way to:
a) not store all the chat entries in the database. Even if there were an auto clear after x minutes, it would still cause a massive increase in usage as the chat entries would first be saved in the database and then cleared out after x minutes.
b) only display the last x chat entries to a user when they load the page, or maybe show them only the chat entries that happened after they loaded the page?
On the first day alone, there were over 3000 lines of chat and the chat plugin was loading every single line when the page was loaded, causing the page to crash, timeout and generally fail when a user tried to load it.
What is the "WYSIWYG button"? I do not want users to be able to add code. I assume the mention of the usage of [code] is what this is as I can not find an explanation of this anywhere. However, when I remove the ticks from all user roles in the advanced tab, the ticks are added again when I save!
When I am logged in as admin (still testing other login options), my avatar is linked like this: http://www.kalsadajuantv.com/@KalsadaJuanAdmin and it leads to nowhere as the page naturally does not exist. Shouldn't it be linking to somewhere else or not linking at all?
When the chat window loads, it never takes the user to the bottom of the chat, but instead dumps them close to the bottom. This is a pain as all users would want to see the latest messages, but they need to scroll down to be able to see them. Can it be set to always auto scroll to the bottom of the chat?
"The Moderator has closed this chat session" is displayed while the page loads, even though the chat is not closed. Once the page loads, the message disappears. Surely it shouldn't be showing at all if the chat is not really closed?
I am NOT using multisite, just a single, standalone install of WP. WP is the latest version and I am using very few plugins as I am still testing the site. I have a dedicated server with more than enough ram, cpu speed etc. The issue is not really the load on the server, but the size that the page becomes when so many chat entries are being loaded with each load of the front page of the website as that is the only place we have the chat at the moment.
