vBulletin Chat Demo: http://vbulletin.123flashchat.com/

vBulletin Integration Introduction
Basically the module can integrate the chat and vBulletin seamlessly.

So what the module can add to vBulletin? It adds a chat button which links to a fabulous chat room, with multiple skins and multilingual support, written in flash or HTML/Ajax, and a visual setting panel, etc. Recent changes: the backend management is enhanced.

1. Chat Button
Firstly a chat button will be added to the top menu of vBulletin as the chat room entrance.


2. Auto-login

After installing the module, the vBulletin user database will be automatically immigrated to the chat room and auto-login will be enabled.

Therefore vBulletin users may click the "Chat"button or directly choose a chat room to enter, without being asked to login again.

3. Custom Settings in vBulletin ACP

Enter vBulletin ACP and you will find "123FLASHCHAT" tab in the left menu, click it to enter the setting panel of the module:


3.1 Server Mode and Integration URL

Here you may define the chat server mode (self hosted, TOPCMM paid hosting or TOPCMM free hosting), and get integration URL (if the first two server modes mentioned above).

3.2 Chat Status
The following data of the chat room can display on vBulletin index page to attract more users to join chatting.

Total rooms, total connections, online users
Chat room list
Online user list
The 3 types of data can be individually disabled to display if you need.


3.3 Various chat clients and different open modes

Three chat clients: flash client (standard, with full features), HTML/Ajax chat client (simple and neat) and avatar chat client (with walking cartoon figures).

Two open modes: embedded or popup.

3.4 Change size, language and skin
You can change chat window size, language and a proper skin to match your vBulletin.

Nine skins options are available:



4. Chat Admin Panel
Except the vBulletin ACP, the chat admin panel is also imported here for your convenience. Please be aware that the admin account here might be different to that of the vBulletin ACP.

Server Modes of 123 Flash Chat
1) Free Trial Edition of 123 Flash Chat

Advantages: It's free but has full functions, even the optional modules including audio and video chat.

2) Commercial Server Software or Hosting Service

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Before that line of code, add this:


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

Now, go to Admin CP > Styles & Templates > Style Manager > Edit Templates and open up the Forum Home Templates then edit FORUMHOME.

Now search for:

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

Above it, add this:

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

and there is your chat statistics for vB4 without the chinese spelling errors!!

No that is stuff from 4.0.1...now if you use the new plugin they have for 4.0.1 and host the chat yourself open up config_local.php and add:

I have this module successfully installed on the site I manage. However, it does not list users that are currently logged into the chat - it always says "None". We are using our vBulletin authentication for the chat login. Any ideas?

Open the “readme.txt”, find the parameter below:
3). Expand: "Forum Display Templates" -> Find: "FORUMHOME"(double click);

1. FIND:

2. ADD BEFORE:

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

3. SAVE TEMPLETE
You need replace

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

With

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Hope this will help you.

How do you install this on the site? I decided to try the monthly package (not free) to give it a shot and test it out. I downloaded the 123flashchat trial (which I guess is upgradable) and the Vbulletin integration chat module. I was able to install the Vbulletin chat module fine, but I cannot connect it to the server to run my license. These are the steps I took to install the server:

1.) Downloaded trial version of 123flashchat on your website.
2.) Installed it on my computer (not website).
3.) I uploaded the files through FTP to get files on my website.
4.) I placed the license and fcserver.jar file in the files on my web server.
5.) I didn't create a database because I was gonna use Derby.
6.) I start chat server again on my computer. Black window opens then closes immediately (is this supposed to happen?) and nothing happens.


So basically I cannot enter my license details and also cannot access the admin panel. Any help would be appreciated.

I installed the 123flashchat exe on my home computer (not web server), as we are supposed to activate it this way? I cannot find a way to run an install through the files I uploaded to the FTP.

Any help would be appreciated.

Dear Jabong82,

That is because you didn't install 123FlashChat on your web server. You just install it on your PC and didn’t configure the chat server to connect with your web server. So the chat is unavailable.

Don't worry about this. Please submit a ticket in your Admin Panel to our support center, and then our tech support will solve your problem as soon as possible.

If you’d like them to offer you the free integration service, the information below will be needed:

1) Ftp account of your website with full write access, and website path
2) vBulletin Website Admin Panel access account (if any)
3) Several testing accounts of the website

Thank you so much!

Thank you for your response. Is there a way that you can tell me how to install on my computer? I already uploaded the FTP files to my server, but there is no instructions how to install. Can you tell me the installation steps please (ie. what I have to access example: mydomain.com/123flashchat/install or something similar? Thank you.

Well, that is just your experience. I have had their chat on my forum for a year and have had no problems. It is the only chat software that works good with Vbulletin.
