I have the following issue, say they are two users X and Y,
X can't see last post of Y till he post a new post and the same with Y.
It seems the chat text area dosen't updated till I submit something.
Any Idea how to fix?

I'm having this problem, yet I had put chatroomread.php into the correct location from the beginning.

Every once in a while, the chat will auto-update like it's supposed to, but the majority of the time, it does not.

I'm getting no drupal error messages (admin/reports/dblog), but I'm not sure where to find error messages for javascript. I monitored firefox's error console while using chatroom, and the only thing that appears in it is this:

Warning: The 'charCode' property of a keyup event should not be used. The value is meaningless.
Source File: /node
Line: 0

That pops up when a message is sent in chatroom.

I have the same problem. Fresh local install of D 6.22, with ChatRoom 6.18. I've tried various configurations, but can't see new messages until user posts new message themselves. No error messages in dblog. What further information do you need? Is there something I can do to help diagnose this?

Same problem, ChatRoom 6.18. I've tried everything I can think of to get it to auto-update, but no joy. Any luck with this yet?
