Note: I no longer use Flashchat, and development and support of it at Tufat appears to have died in 2010.

vBulletin 3.8 Version
Please remember to click Mark as Installed if you use this modification.

Flashchat 4 integration with vBulletin 3.8.

Note: This is compatible with Flashchat 4.7.x only, it will not work with Flashchat 5 or 6.

Standard Flashchat includes vBulletin integration as part of the Tufat supplied files. However, the standard integration does not include Direct Usergroup Integration or other extra's like the WOL Display & Flashchat on a vBulletin page. This Modification adds those features

Extra's added by this modification

* Direct login to a room.
* The WOL will correctly display Flashchat as the location (not 'Unknown Location')
* Flashchat can be displayed embedded inside a 'standard' vBulletin Page (i.e. not full screen).
* Direct Usergroup Integration - a section is added to each usergroup in the ACP Usergroup Manager to set the Flashchat permissions for that group.
* The plugin will try to automatically add a link to Flashchat in your Navbar Quick Links or Community Links - this feature can be disabled if you wish.
* The automatic link can have a prefix path defined - useful if you use something like CMPS.
* You can define a usergroup to login as Flashchats "Spy" mode.

More notes:

* This integration is for Flashchat version 4 only.
* The automatic link feature may fail if you have customised templates (it uses template hooks).
* For Flashchat inside a vBulletin page you need to link to .../misc.php?do=flashchat
* This modification does not add any links to Flashchat Administration in the ACP.
* You can set all members to login direct to particular room via the ACP.
* You can also add a room parameter to the url - i.e. .../misc.php?do=flashchat&room=3
* Spys can login into the chat but are not listed in the room - they cannot chat, just watch.

The CMS file assumes that you are installing Flashchat in your forum root folder i.e. (/forums/chat/) - this is the same folder as your usercp.php file and includes folder. Installation will fail if you do not do this.

Support: This modification is no longer supported. Please check the instructions, and make sure you have uploaded any files to the correct location - the vast majority of problems reported are due to an error made in editing or uploading files.

Finally, I am not Tufat.com or Flashchat Support - if you have questions about Flashchat, their forums are here.

To use the this integration simply download and unzip the file, then follow the instructions in the text file. Once installed, the Flashchat userlevel options for each usergroup will appear in the ACP usergroup edit screens - editing of the CMS file will no longer be required.


v3.8.001 : First release for vb 3.8.

I'll be giving this one a go. FC 5.0 appears to be crap.

wacnstac 16 Feb 2009 02:37

Is there any way to fix the good old security token missing error when one clicks on a profile? I'm assuming it's the new vbulletin38CMS that fixes that. I've installed the new integration along with 4.12. 4.12 worked previous to the installation of the integration, but afterward when I try to enter the chat I just get a blank page.

Ok, I worked on this some more...... I did a re-install of flashchat using their install program and check the 3.6 integration (as it was the latest that was on the menu). Install of 4.12 goes fine, and I am able to login with my forum username and password. Then I go through all the steps of this integration. It seems that when I change the CMSsystem to point to the new vbulletin38CMS.php as the integration file when I subsequently try to logon to flashchat it no longer recognizes my username and password. Can you help Paul?

Did you do step 3 in the instructions (i.e. change the CMS name in Flashchats config file).

Yes, it's when I do that..... 3 end up with no more connectivity with the vb database, i.e. it no longer recognizes my username and password.

In which case please read the purple support note in the main post.

Does this also works with Flashchat version 4.5.2 or just 4.7.x?

4.7.x works fine but due to some reasons i do need this 4.5.2 version.

No idea, but probably.
