Chat Tips

Font Colour

It is possible to choose font colours other than the default (usually black). The font colour will revert back after each message. If you want to keep the custom font colour you'll need to go into chat settings
(screw driver & spanner icon) and enable "Persist font color".

Embed images


To share images with other chatters, you'll first need to upload the image you wish to share to a file hosting service like Dropbox, Imageshack, Photobucket, etc. To embed the uploaded image in chat, wrap the URL with tags. Example: [​IMG]


Chat now supports sending browser notifications for private whispers. This can be turned on in chat settings
(screw driver & spanner icon). The first time you receive a whisper after activating this setting you will be asked whether you wish to allow AusChristmasLighting to send notifications. Not all browsers support notifications.
