Description

When I had left the vBulletin world, I was in the past the co-author of a little chatbox (shoutbox), very well known in the vBulletin world.
This chatbox had been developed by Svaliotti (known as Poseidon on vb.org) for vB2 in the past and I had made the porterage (with is authorisation as we were both members of the same french non-official support forum) and the improvement for vB3.

It is thus normal that in my return in the vBulletin world, I begin by getting down to this hack. Even if several versions of chatbox are already present in the vBulletin world, I said to myself that it would be a good thing to make a made in France.

Naturally, I don't deal with a "copy" version of the other chatbox, I have any coded at the beginning (it was preferable because the front code wasn't so clean any more), and I integrated a good quantity of very interesting features.

New version features

The new version contains all the features from the previous version. Description of these versions can be found in Sofia's post hereabove (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1257510&postcount=3).

Modifications from previous version are the following :
  • 1.5 :
    • Fixed bugs :
      • Chatbox is shown two times in full page mode when the Display on all pages under the navbar option is selected.
      • "Fermer" is not in a sentence.
      • Overflow problem with Netscape.
      • Uppercase transformed to lowercase in the PM channel.
      • The ban cron debans user indefinitly banned.
      • Chatbox continuously loading on some forums.
      • Inactivity and guests problem.
      • Team icon blinking is not working properly.
      • Coma error in the who is online.
      • 2 spaces instead of one between the date and the time.
    • New functionnalities :
      • Option to deactivate the random smilies.
      • Option to deactivate the automatic PM sending when banning a user.
      • New permission to allow or not the downloading of shouts.
      • Option to specify the name under which unregistered users shouts appear.
      • Syntax change for the /ban, /ignore, /del, /pm commands : Possibility to use them with the username or the userid (For more information about the new syntax, check the help button in the chatbox).
    • Removed functionnalities :
This hack is very light in term of queries : only one for every recharging / refreshment of the chatbox and 5 for the statistics in the load of the page if you actiate them. If you don't activate advanced options of course as stated aside each in the acp

Installation

Read the file "Installation" in the pack.

Once the installation is ended, go in usergroups and edit permissions to see the Chatbox.

By default, no group has access to the chatbox.

Screenshots

The screenshots are in french as I have made it on an online website which is in french. Don't hesitate to give me new one if you want in english

They are up to date of 1.3 version.

See the following post : http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1292136&postcount=559

Could you tell me more about those users ? Are they in the same usergroup ?

Are you sure that they didn't set the chatbox not to show in their control panel ?

One is an admin and the other is a super mod.... Other admins can see the shout box same for the other super mods. I just logged in ad the admin that can't see it and she don't have the chatbox options in her CP.

this fix "Fatal error: Call to undefined function: query_read_slave() in /home/denuncia/public_html/mgc_chatbox.php on line 1200" but not show current users on line on the chat, only say "You are actually the only user connected to the chatbox"

I even imported the default vb style to debug the problem. Control panel is not a big issue, i can hide the "Yes-No" selection. It seems that the ChatBox will never work on my forum again.

ChatBox uninstalled:

v1.1 installed, default vb skin imported > Javascript error > Loading message is permanent > When i enter a message and press the OK button, it sends me to mgc_chatbox.php (archive page)


v1.2 installed, all of the chatbox templates were reverted, default vb skin imported > Javascript error > Loading message is permanent > When i enter a message and press the OK button, it sends me to mgc_chatbox.php (archive page)

v1.3 installed - upload files are renewed from the original package, all of the chatbox templates were reverted, default vb skin imported > Javascript error > Loading message is permanent > When i enter a message and press the OK button, it sends me to mgc_chatbox.php (archive page)

I am trying to get it to appear above the footer on every page. I place $chatbox_forumhome in the first line of the footer template, but it does not appear. Is this the correct method? I have "Display on Defined Pages as a Variable" set to yes. I also tried setting "Other Pages List" to "index.php,cmps_index.php".

If you read the instructions, this is not the pagename that you have to enter in this field but the THIS_SCRIPT constant variable

Please read carefully the options explanation within your acp this should help you.
