Mobile style & Chat Room. - March 13th 2014, 03:41 AM

Hello everybody,

I am pleased to announce that we have introduced a mobile version of TeenHelp. This style is better optimised for mobile devices, which will make it easier to read information and to navigate around the site on your phones and tablets than with the current style.

There are a few features that don't work fully on the mobile style yet (e.g. some pages are stretched), but most areas work well and we are aiming to improve this in the future.

The Chat Room will also now work on mobile devices (on both the normal and mobile styles), as well as a few other changes recently being made to the Chat Room. If you have any problems with the Chat Room please clear your web browser cookies to get rid of old settings and try again.

I hope you are all enjoy these changes, which makes TeenHelp more accessible for everybody and helps people get support 'on the go' rather than having to wait until they can get a computer.

You can get to the mobile style on your phones by going to http://www.teenhelp.org/mobile

Oh, just one thing I noticed (sorry, I know I'm being annoying, since this is awesome), the Chat Room usernames on the bottom of the index page are no longer colourful, I presume because the code that did that is different with the AddonChat update. Likewise, "Who's Chatting?" is also not available?

You can't press the "home" button on your phone or it kicks you out of chat!

At least, it did that for me. I was in chat using my phone, then I pressed the button to use other apps, then went back to chat and I was logged out.

In that case, either buy an Android (muhahaha ) or just don't hit home.

I like it a lot, and in my opinion it's great for people who use their phones a lot. Personally, I like that it still gives you the option for the default version, I'm just more used to that one since either way, I can't use chat on my phone for some reason, not even in the mobile version (as of right now, I hope )

It's a great edition, maybe a TeenHelp app next

It says we still need java to use the chatroom on mobile? Is that right?

I'm able to go on the Chat Room on my iPod and my iPhone, TJ, neither of which have Java.

Just tried to enter the chat-room, a window popped up and asked if I wanted to run AddonChat, okay, cool, but it gives a warning that says, "This application will run with unrestricted access which may put your personal information at risk". I'm kind of hesitant at accepting it. What does this mean exactly? What personal information does it have access to? I would appreciate if someone could share their intuition as I'd really like to join the chat-room often.

The java framework has the ability to pull information off your harddrive, or do basically almost anything an application running *On* your computer can do. So it's usually not safe to run java applications from unknown companies. Addonchat is a well known and established secure company so it's safe to run applications from them.

It's similar to the browser asking "are you sure you want to run this program?" when you download something.
