It looks like the new version is not auto scrolling all the time.

    Hey Bart,

    I'm aware of an issue with autoscrolling not working if there are less than 100 messages in the backchat.

    It's actually a Campfire problem because Safari suffers from the same problem (Propane uses WebKit so any problems in Safari will generally appear in Propane too). I've told 37signals about it but they haven't addressed it yet (to my knowledge).

    I don't tinker with Campfire's autoscrolling for fear of breaking something in new and 'interesting' ways so for the time being I have to just wait for 37signals to fix it.

    On the other hand, if the broken autoscrolling you're talking about is happing in rooms with more than 100 messages in the backchat then I'd certainly like to know that - it'll give me more ammunition to pressure 37signals into fixing things.

    And thanks for taking the time to let me know about the problem.

    Regards, Trev

    So I am not sure exactly where it is but some one just posted
    something and it did not scroll all the way down. It did before this
    latest version

    just a quick update: I spent most of the day on IM with one of the 37signals guys, tracking down where Campfire is failing to autoscroll (in both Propane and Safari).

    They've already pushed an update that fixes one of the issues and I've tracked down another couple of issues and suggested fixes for them.

    I'll update this ticket once I have any more news about updates.

    Reagards, Trev

    Hey again Bart,

    37signals just deployed some changes to Campfire that address all of the autoscrolling issues that I'm aware of.

    If you quit and restart Propane it will pick up their changes.

    If you continue to see autoscrolling problems then do let me know.

    Regards, Trev

    Hey Bart,

    unfortunately it's not completely sorted. I'm not able to issue a new build of Propane that fixes the issue (yet) but in the mean time there is a correction you can make to solve the problem.

    It's explained here:

    Really sorry this has dragged on for so long.
