See poll question.

By the way, yes, the issue of the popup not displaying the chat is now fixed.

Question...Why don't you simply enable the option for people to chose themselves?

*Edit*
I see the options to do so in the chat settings, but they don't work.
I've tried countless times and ways to put it back above, but it just wont do it.

Above. Anything lese seems weird and as if it would kinda defeat the purpose of the Chatbox.

Another thing..sort of related.
I don't see why we need three different thread related pages.
I used to view new chat messages, and then "What's New" tab/link to see what new threads there were.
Now we have "Home" with ..new? posts? "Forum" with highlighted posts again, plus the "Chaos Realm" that isn't added to the "What's New" tab, and "What's New" with another set of highlighted new posts.

Cut the Latest Posts section in two and place the chat in the middle


Seriously. The coding would be beyond me unfortunately. I'm already having a hard time getting the Chatbox to be customized by user-specified position.

Really quick, I have fixed and enabled more Display Modes for the Chatbox, so that's good, but it's still not working entirely as I'd like it to.

The Portal page merely shows a more verbose Latest Posts widget that you see on the Forums page. The What's New page shows EVERYTHING that is new, including even profile comments in its feed. (Except for the Chaos Realm which I manually disabled from showing in Latest Posts and What's New via the Admin Control Panel.) I think you can also customize a lot of what you see in it, but I never played around with it myself.
