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

Support

Several possible problems are explained in the file "Read Me"
Chatbox in iBProarcade and vBadvanced CMPS

See the readme file for iBProarcade.

For vbadvanced, a module is available here : http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=163628.

FAQ

R: You use a style and it's possible that variables used in templates aren't present. (Read the file "Read Me")

Q: I have a problem with accents in the Chatbox
R: Read the file "Read Me"

Q: How to change the value of color for date and for command /me?
R: When you add additionnal CSS for each style, you can change color in class CSS.

In vbadvanced ?? If yes that's normal I told it wouldn't work anymore with that modification and if it did work on other parts of the forum then I'll have to dig into that.

But if you did modified the clientscript file well this should be good. In the clientscript file each function parameter in which you found it is now starting by mgc_chatbox.php right ?

this didnt start til the last upgrade im about to go back to the older version somthing changed in this version thats effecting my users being able to see it

all they can see is the loading message .. it just never loads


i will also add i installed a firefox toolbar a member made for my site and i couldnt see the shout after install .uninstalled the toolbar and shout came back ..
It doesn't load an tell them of an error in IE that's right ? And this error is the same as dirty68 I suppose ?

This problem is due to the changes I made for vbadvanced integration I think.

You could see it's working by replacing all

Code:

bburl + '/

by

Code:

'

from the clientscript/mgc_chatbox.js file and I think this problem would disappear. Can you try it ?

However with that modification integration with vbadvanced wouldn't work anymore.

If the problem is coming from there, then I'll have to change something from the next version to manager in a better way the vbadvanced thing.


bro so far that has fixed it thank you ..i reinstalled the toolbar that made it stop and its now working with that edit

I think you haven't followed carefully the uninstall instructions, you should have removed the files prior to removing the product.

Now you have to rebuild manually the bitfields (the rebuild bitfield link in the acp is available only when you activate the debug mode).

Actually when I had same problem, I just installed mgc chatbox again, then removed the files and unsintalled it, that took care of mysql error.

lol There are also phrases in the user side

You should start from the xml files not directly within the acp.

Once you have finished could you please send it to me I would rather prefer so that I could update the zip file at the top and of course quoting you

You also plan to translate install instructions ?

haha i finished a few hours a go with Global and Cpanel phrases. only 50% of the vb settings phrases are left to translate.

And of course i can translate the install instructions too.
It will only need a little bit more time to finish all
I gonna try to finish it today, if not inshallah (so God will) tomorrow.
