Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  

This modification is no longer available or supported.

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.

This is a simple display of who is currently chatting in FlashChat - on the forum homepage display.

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

The main features are ;

1. It displays the list on Forum Home with the "Users online" display.
2. The list view is collapsable, so you see just the number.
3. Users who should display as coloured or bold etc are displayed correctly (based on the display usergroup)
4. If you 'hover' over a username it will show the room they are chatting in and their status (away etc).
5. If the chat is empty, a simple "no one is chatting" message is displayed.
6. The option to record and display the Most Ever chatters can be enabled.
7. The ability to turn it on/off is in the ACP Options.
8. The ability to allow only certain usergroups to view the list is an ACP option (include or exclude groups).
9. The location of the Flashchat folder is an ACP option

(Options are located in vBulletin Options > Who Is Using Flashchat).

Unzip the XML and import into vB using the ACP Product Manager.

Further Notes:

This hack cannot display any bots in the chat, due to the strange way that Flashchat stores this information.

I have no connection with the Flashchat product - if you have questions about Flashchat functionality then their forums are located here.

Template Hook

Please note that this modification uses the following template hook in the FORUMHOME template ;


This must be present in any customised template/style you are using, otherwise this modification will not display.

I have the link to my chat room in the upper right corner in the nav bar. Is there any way to take the number of people chatting from down below and display it next to that link?

Important Note:

I no longer use Flashchat (and havent for over 18 months).

The development and support of Flashchat at appears to have died in 2010 - the site owner has not been seen for almost a year, and even the developer who took over F/C version 6 has not logged in for at least two months. The last [beta] version was 6.0.8, released in June 2010.

Therefore after almost 6 years of supporting Flashchat Integration with vBulletin, I have decided I can no longer support my Flashchat modifications. I do not have it installed on my test sites anymore.

Anyone who wishes can of course continue to use them, and they should continue to work quite happily in 4.1 [for the moment]. However, any future issues caused by vb style or code changes may break them, and will most likely remain unfixed.
