This is a php/mySQL powered chat system.

EWT Chat 3.0.0 Lite Changes
-Complete Recode
-Enhanced ajax which performs much faster and should allow for an additional load of 500% compared to the last release of 2.9.x
-Many changes to everything
-Remove private message system for now
-Remove /cmds besides /me for now

EWT Chat 3.0.01 Lite Changes
-Redid layout and javascript for planned changes to the pro side and to make things look cleaner.
-fixed various little things.

Whats the difference between pro and lite?
Lite:
The lite version supports only one chat room with no ability to create custom rooms.
It doesnt have any user preferences anymore either.
Basic yet functional chatroom without advanced features

Pro: (Still being developed)
Ability to create custom and private rooms
Plus many more things soon to come.

I think this release fixes every reported bug that I have read about.




Version 2.9.x to 3.0.0 Upgrade Steps:
Upload all the files
Upload the product file
Delete any old files from the previous versions
Disable the minichat addon if you have it for now as it wont work with v3 just yet until I release an updated version.
Open up the fresh install readme and follow the steps for editing ajax_chat.php (just a few settings I didnt feel we needed to use a query for)


2.9.1 to 2.9.2 Upgrade Steps:
Open up template navbar find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Demo:

User/Password: test2323 / test2323


Please if you use this hack click install and feel free to donate to help support the future development of this system.


V3 is a highlight release for this product as it runs and performs much faster then ever before and can now handle a considerable amt of load.

This chat script should technically be able to support 1k+ users on a good high end server.

Thanks for porting the greatest chat hack ever to 3.6, Tim. And thanks to Zero Tolerance for the original code as well. I have been waiting for this sucker and now it's finally here! :D

I'm also the co-author and a supporter of this hack so if you have any other suggestions or ideas on your mind to make this hack even better, feel free to share them below.

thanks, i was looking for this.

gamingisit 21 Apr 2007 00:58

This hack is amazing.

Dream 21 Apr 2007 00:58

Cool, I'm gonna try this out.

Is this a port of vBChat from ZT?

nevermind I read the thread

Yes, it is a port of vBChat by ZT but Tim and I are going to add a couple of new major features and additions to this hack so stay tuned. ;)

Dream 21 Apr 2007 01:16

Cool.

Working fine so far, but smilies and bbcode are not parsing for me.

JamieLee2k 21 Apr 2007 01:16

ok so there are so many people raving about this chat, what makes it sooooo good?

Yeah I have noticed that already though HTML codes seems to be parsing just fine. I'll look into that soon and inform Tim about it.

Because there aren't any good chat rooms out there for vBulletin and the fact that vBChat is definitely much better to use than vBShout. How come, you ask? Because of the server loads and all? Haven't you heard or read the complains about that hack lately?

Dream 21 Apr 2007 01:25

You need custom WOL location too.

Snake 21 Apr 2007 01:29

Why's that? Are you saying it doesn't show up whether you're in the chat room or not while viewing the online list?

Dream 21 Apr 2007 01:34

Yeah Who's Online shows unknown location.

Also adding WOL support would be useful if someone wants to release a "who's chatting" mod.

Snake 21 Apr 2007 01:37

Alright, I'll take a note about that and fix it. I'm not sure about the "Who's Chatting" feature but I'll mention that to Tim. It's all up to him, you know.

Dream 21 Apr 2007 01:49

No problem. I'm not asking for a "who's chatting" feature, I might do it myself.

The install.txt file has some issues, it says "Step 4" when there are no steps 3/2/1, also it doesn't say that you have to upload the files, just a heads up, you'll get support questions on that in no time.
