Interesting, I've never seen that one before. Chat tab seems to be working fine on my end. Maybe a momentary glitch or issue with browser cache?

I probably found reason is which is that I was not really logged in!  :D

I tried on my flash-enabled work computer and it doesn't load. Ended up doing a little bit of digging and it looks like it is utilizing an ActiveX NPAPI plugin which hasn't been supported in Chrome/Chromium for quite some time.

Plugin - application\x-mplayer2

All good, suspect it is something that the host site is utilizing to stream videos. Moving it over to another platform may also work.

Perhaps it might be a good idea to move the chat link when someone is already within The Cup of Linux Forums.

Ah, ok that makes sense. Thought you were just going to the other chat link when once already on the forum vs the landing page. Failed for me as well. The link may just need to be updated. Good catch!

TRY IT AGAIN! The index page is a remnant of the OLD site and was not visible until we switched to SSL. The issue is resolved now so I am closing this thread. Links on the 404 page have been fixed too. Please DO NOT click HERE.

Looks like the same issue from what I can see. Spatry's Chatroom option is still redirecting to "http://cupoflinux.com/irc.html" on the landing page, although after receiving the 404 error, clicking on the link will redirect to the correct page.
