Installed Edge, tried using Java applet, nothing happened and I don't know how else to view in classic format but really hate zeta any ideas thanks. My preference is set to view zeta chats in classic mode but if i enter a chat room it shows up as zeta. Java wont work on any of the browsers I've tried

I'm sure no expert, but My forum is set to classic and I use only firefox or edge. I don't believe it involves java at all any more so I'm just not sure why you are not able. I don't care for zeta either. Hopefully one of the experts here can come up with a solution. Perhaps just some setting or something. Wish I could be more help.

I wonder if you just ignore using the java applet - would that help?
I do not use it at all.

I just thought of something.
Go to my preferences at the top of the screen and make sure you have checked the box "to view all Zeta forums in classic mode. And then if you enter a chat, don't click that java applet.

I think you and Risa are talking about 2 different things. We used java to chat in the past but java is not secure and browsers don't support java anymore. Zeta chat works fine, for Classic and Zeta forums.

That could be Els. Like I said, I'm no expert.

Hopefully, she will find her solution from someone who is.

I have checked the box under preferences to view chats in classic format. This allows me to view the forum in classic mode but not to CHAT in classic; there's a difference. I tried both loading and not loading the Java applet; either way forces me to chat IN the chatroom using Zeta so I am no longer given a choice.

Hi Els and thanks! I was still using Java to chat up until last Friday night. My computer crashed the next morning, and the new hard drive doesn't have the version of IE that allowed Java; apparently none of the browsers (Edge, Chrome, or Firefox) will allow it. Apparently it's not secure enough although I never had a problem with it, but I don't use a phone or tablet to chat. Don't know if that makes a difference but I was happy with Java. Guess I'll have to adjust to the new format. I must have entered the ranks of Old Fartdom *smile*
