vBulletin 3.7.x Official Integration & Authentication Extension

Product Info
Name: AddonChat Official Integration Product
Product ID: ac80_37
Version: 3.7.0
Author: AddonInteractive (http://www.addoninteractive.com/)
Last Modified: 15 May. 2008
Compatibility: vBulletin 3.7.x

Overview
This extension allows you to fully integrate a AddonChat Free, Professional, Professional PLUS or Enterprise Java™ Chat Room with your vBulletin 3.7 forum system. This script provides basic integration for AddonChat Free and Professional customers. Remote authentication (the ability to secure access to your chat room using your vBulletin username/passwords) is available for Pro+/Enterprise customers, as well as a Who's Chatting feature.

Requirements
  • vBulletin 3.7 or higher
  • AddonChat Free, Professional PLUS, or Enterprise, or AddonChat Professional with the Remote (HTTP) Authentication System. You may register for a AddonChat account at www.addonchat.com. A Professional PLUS or Enterprise account is recommended to take advantage of advanced features.
  • (optional, but recommended) PHP with allow_url_fopen directive enabled in your php.ini file or the PHP CURL extension. This is required to download the Who's Chatting list from AddonChat servers.
What's new?
This script is a completely revamped edition of our previous integration script. Installation no longer requires any template or code modifications. Additionally, there are no PHP files to edit when setting up your chat room. We have added an "AddonChat" menu item in the vBulletin AdminCP that allows you to setup and configure your chat room with ease. Most users will simply need to enter their account number and password (as used at addonchat.com) and your chat room settings will be retrieved automatically, with your remote authentication system updated automatically as well. We have also improved character code support through better UTF-8 conversion allowing non-English speakers to use a vBulletin+AddonChat without issue. Issues relating to the Who's Chatting system causing problems have also been addresses; a scheduled task has been added to automatically optimize and repair AddonChat related tables daily in addition to improvements to the re-written Who's Chatting system.

Features
  • Seamless integration between your vBulletin forum and AddonChat
  • After installation, setup and configure your chat room from the AddonChat menu in your vBulletin Admin Control Panel
  • Popup and Embedded Chat room link options
  • Automatic (ten minute interval) User's Chatting count updates
  • Real-Time Who's Chatting list
  • Display the amount of users within your chat room on your main navbar shown throughout your entire forum
  • Remote authentication allows you to authenticate access into your chat room based on your vBulletin user database
  • Automatic user login option
  • Seamless integration with vBulletin Usergroup permissions (remote authentication)
  • Remote functions system allows you to tie in vBulletin forum functions into the AddonChat user menu
  • Uses the vBulletin XML product import architecture, making installation/uninstallation simple.
  • No code or template modifications required
  • Automated account lookup - just enter your account number and password, and your information will be automatically retrieved. (allow_url_fopen must be enabled in PHP)
  • Multi-lingual (UTF-8) support
Installation
Installaion takes less than five minutes. Download the supplied ZIP file, and extract it on your personal computer. Open the readme.txt file for full installation instructions. No PHP code modifications or template modifications are required. This script makes use of the vBulletin XML Product system for a fast and painless installation.

Support
Support is provided by AddonInteractive for this script provided you have a Professional, Professional PLUS or Enterprise AddonChat account. Read the included instructions for details. Please let us know if you have any problems installing this extension.

There have been numerous reports of issues with the old integration script (for VB 3.5, VB 3.6) not working on VB 3.7, hence the new release.

If you're using an older release, the biggest advantage you'll notice is that the plugin now ties directly in to your vBulletin usergroup permissions. So, no more editing a chat_global.php file, instead you just click over to the Usergroup manager to specify the AddonChat privileges for each of your usergroups. There are over twenty-five different options, so there is also much finer user-permission control in this release as well.

If you're using the Pro edition, I'd suggest either going to the Pro+ edition, or getting the remote auth. module to take advantage of this.

This script also doesn't require any template modifications as the previous release did -- so installation is very fast, and it can be uninstalled easily as well without having to edit any styles/templates.

There are lots of other improvements as well, including full UTF-8 support, and a smarter Who's Chatting system.

If you're running VB 3.7 and AddonChat, I strongly recommend using this product.

How many simultaneous users does the free version allow? I have used RealChat in the past and am using FlashChat now and thought I might give this a spin.

Well, if this works out and is as good as it looks to be, then I see some upgrading in the future. Any words of advice before I jump into this?

Nope -- The only thing I suggest is having the allow_url_fopen directive set to 'On' in your php.ini file, but it is not required.

Give it a try with the free edition (most of the plugin features won't work, but you'll have a basic chat room) then eMail us (as per my previous post) and request a trial run to fully test out all of the features

I must have the allow_url_fopen directive enabled as it showed me on the list of chatters on testing. Very seemless integration and easy setup. I'm looking forward to testing this out further.

How do we got about editing the background color around the chat window on the page and make the window fit the page better?

Hi Boofo,

What you'll want to do is edit the applet background color from the AddonChat control panel. Login at http://www.addonchat.com/login.html and click over to Look & Feel -> Colors to edit this. Color selection is fairly limited for our free accounts.

The page itself uses your standard vBulletin templates for the header/footer and other related content, so if you really want to change the background color of the page itself, you'd have to modify vB style settings. I'd recommend just modifying the AddonChat colors to match the background instead
