  • Volume control.
  • A slightly bigger font size to make it easier to read.
  • A more obvious closed chat bar.

    Hi Gregg! Thanks so much for letting us know about that. Would you mind dropping us a line through the Ning Help Center ( so we can investigate and resolve this issue?

    We seem to have discovered a bug in the chat. IF you put an emote at the end of the 2nd, 3rd, or greater line, it locks the chat. The only way to fix this is an Admin has to clear the chat log, close the chat. Open the chat, and then pop it out.

    I can duplicate this every single time by ending the 2nd, 3rd or 4th line with an emoticon. I have a theory on why this is happening, but just wanted to see if the issue is being worked on. I tried a few of the 3rd party chat apps, and I don’t like any of them. I do like your chat though, if it wouldn’t keep crashing when people use the emotes.


    Is there still a limit on how many words you can post for each time you hit enter? It looks like you still can’t post a long response without it getting cut off.

    I have just checked out the new release and the improvements, they are awesome. The feature is becoming better and better. Well done to all involved. They just need to sort out the closing private chat issue and then i will be 100% happy.

    Thanks for all of the hard work your doing.
