Chat plugin conflicting with login dropdown

When the Chat plugin is activated, the dropdown login section of my site won't work. The site darkens slightly, but the pop-up login window will not appear. The only way to login is wp-admin.

    Hey there @Bruce

    I hope you are well today!

    Have you tried switching the Chat Session Polling Content to the alternate method?

    Would you please also activate the chat plugin on your site so we can see it in action, and look for conflicts with browser tools?

    Hello there Bruce,

    Thanks for your post.

    What is the link to your site please ?

    The one registered in your account is protected and I am not able to see it. If that is the site, kindly disable the protection so that we can test that.

    Also, there are a few plugin updates available on that site, please make sure all your plugins are up to date.

    Cheers, PC

    Yeah, look like either a JavaScript conflict of something with your theme. When I load the page in Firefox and check the console I'm seeing an error that page of the chat data is not being loaded. Chat loads most of what it needed into the footer via the wp_footer hook. I see the chat JS file loaded but WordPress should also be added the localized variables


    Try switching to the default theme? See if you can get these working together.

    Might be some other plugins effecting them all.

    I have an LMS plugin being used on a second site in the multisite network. It has had some errors where it was applying to all of the sites on the network instead of just the places where it is activated.

    I think the plugin has since been fixed so I'm going to attempt to use the Chat plugin once again. What kind of system resources does the plugin take up?
