    RE: Live Messenger Presence button is not working

    My status icons are showing as offline today as well. Maybe its an outage,
    but I have no idea where to submit an inquiry on this issue.

    Just an update on my part...
    It seems to only be affecting users that were already using the service. I
    check the box to "Allow anyone on the web to see my presence and send me
    messages" and refresh the page only for the checkbox to disappear.

    I check the box for a new user that was not using the service and it stays
    checked when I refresh the page. I move the coding to my site and it works
    for the new user.

    Maybe its a session problem with users that were currently connected when
    some problem happened?

    Hi Will,

    I created a new account, checked the checkbox, refreshed the page and it not
    worked.

    On the settings page, if I check the checkbox, save it, create html, and
    then click on the link above the page which says to active the messenger
    status, the checkbox is unchecked!

    I tried it using IE and firefox. Do you know what else can I do?

    Thanks.

    I wish I could help more but I do not think the problems is yours. It is
    most likely a problem on Microsoft's Live service.

    I am removing the links from my website for a time. I will replace them in
    a few hours to see if this changes the problem.

    I will continue to try different things and update if I find a solution.

    Seems waiting it out was the only thing we could do.

    Microsoft seems to have fixed the problem now. At least all of my users are
    working again. *shrugs*

    Hi,

    Just to add, what you were describing has happened before (maybe 6-8 months ago).

    ....and fixed itself just the same.
