Hi landste,

Comet Chat shows you step by step how to install in to osdate / osDateEvo.

You upload the cometchat folder to the main dir /cometchat
Then you go to the address bar type in you www.domain.com/cometchat/install.php

It will ask to integrate to a system, pick osdate click it and follow the rest of the instructions.

You will be asked to add a integration link, add this to the index_header.tpl
Code: [Select]
<link type="text/css" href="{$DOC_ROOT}cometchat/cometchatcss.php" rel="stylesheet" charset="utf-8">
<script type="text/javascript" src="{$DOC_ROOT}cometchat/cometchatjs.php" charset="utf-8"></script>

I recommend you do it like this so quests can't see it:
Code: [Select]
{if $smarty.session.UserId != ''}
<link type="text/css" href="{$DOC_ROOT}cometchat/cometchatcss.php" rel="stylesheet" charset="utf-8">
<script type="text/javascript" src="{$DOC_ROOT}cometchat/cometchatjs.php" charset="utf-8"></script>
{/if}

Then it's mostly done after setting up the admin area, you can change how it looks in the cometchat admin area.

Have fun with it, works perfectly.

If you can't work it out, please send me you FTP details with you domain name in a Private Message and I will install it for you.

Pharg ( Phill )

Hi landste,

Happy to hear my cometchat help, got you up and running.

As for the Forum issue, it looks like you added the latest version of phpbb3 being phpbb3 v3.1.14, you need version phpBB3 v3.0.14

You can see here why and what version will work with osDateEvo at this stage.

Hello msl,

With cometchat, you need to download osdate integration and install it, not the cometchat on it's own.

First I need to know if you got this from your old account which was set to your old domain?
As I think they can only be used on that one domain, if it is, you might be able to change your domain in your account and then download it again, as it's encrypted to that domain only.

Once installed, you just put the script in the bottom of the index_header.tpl in FreshDate template.

Code: [Select]
{if $smarty.session.UserId != ''}
<link type="text/css" href="{$DOC_ROOT}cometchat/cometchatcss.php" rel="stylesheet" charset="utf-8">
<script type="text/javascript" src="{$DOC_ROOT}cometchat/cometchatjs.php" charset="utf-8"></script>
{/if}

That's all there to do really, then just setup how you want it to look in the admin of cometchat itself.

I hope this helps you  :)

Pharg ( Phill )

Thanks Pharg it works perfectly....I installed the cometchat code in Default template also just in case i decide to change to different template in the future....however on mobile devices it's seemed to have a couple glitches i noticed especially when it comes to viewing the games as i can only view the first row and only about less then half of the second row of offered games....using cometchat 6.1.0....could it be Fresh date issues migrating cometchat to mobile? Or and extra code i need to insert? or the same cometchat code needed to be inserted somewhere else for the mobile to be 100% responsive? Does anyone else had that issue in the past with mobile? Any solutions? I have included a picture to clarify my issue.

Thanks in advance to everyone who can help me

Hi Mls,

In the mobile version for cometchat, your not suppose to have the bar show, the setting is normally set to off on show the bar.

There are 2 ways to use cometchat in mobile:

1) You can either buy their mobile addon so the chat can be used in mobile (at more cost)

2) Download their free comechat app and it works with you cometchat system on the site. ( Free )

Hi Mls,

Please check the same way with the default template also, I have had no problems uploading a pic using mobile.

But on that note, please remember, in mobile pic, that can be very large, some are set to 3264px by 2448px, you might have to reduce your mobiles Resolution or increase allowed upload size.

Just tested my mobile uploading that size, didn't have a issue, might be something else maybe.

Hi Mls,

I just tried to upload a pic in yours by mobile and it logged me out, so I think there is a session problem which I have also noticed
on my own sites, I will go and see if I can find the problem and let you know.

PS: You main pic in mobile loading needs compressing for mobile, it takes ages to load in android, you can test the
website speed here  https://gtmetrix.com/ and here https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/

These will tell whats slowing the loading down plus google will rank you lower being slow loading.
