This modification is no longer available or supported.

Flashchat integration with vBulletin 3.7

Note: Flashchat Version 5.0.8 onwards now has the option for vbulletin 3.7 integration.

Note:
Standard Flashchat includes vBulletin integration as part of the Tufat supplied files. However, the standard integration does not include Direct Usergroup Integration or other extra's like the WOL Display & Flashchat on a vBulletin page. This Modification adds those features


Standard vB 3.7 integration features

* Authorised members are automatically logged in.
* Automatic login works even if a member has not ticked "remember me".
* All non authorised members are locked out (this and the above are based on usergroup membership).
* If enabled, Flashchat updates the users session location (displayed in various vBulletin online location displays such as WOL).
* Real ip detection when a proxy server is used (only if the proxy server passes on the details).
* Permanant, Private Rooms are loaded by Admins and Moderators (allows for Staff Rooms).

Extra's added by this modification

* Direct login to a room.
* The WOL will correctly display Flashchat as the location (not 'Unknown Location')
* Flashchat can be displayed embedded inside a 'standard' vBulletin Page (i.e. not full screen).
* Direct Usergroup Integration - a section is added to each usergroup in the ACP Usergroup Manager to set the Flashchat permissions for that group.
* The plugin will try to automatically add a link to Flashchat in your Quick Links or Navbar - this feature can be disabled if you wish.
* The automatic link can have a prefix path defined - useful if you use something like CMPS.
* You can define a usergroup to login as Flashchats "Spy" mode. (Version 3.7.002 onwards)


More notes:

* This integration is for Flashchat versions 4.7.x or 5.0.x (seperate downloads).
* The automatic link feature may fail if you have customised templates (it uses template hooks).
* For Flashchat inside a vBulletin page you need to link to .../misc.php?do=flashchat
* This modification does not add any links to Flashchat Administration in the ACP.
* You can set all members to login direct to particular room via the ACP.
* You can also add a room parameter to the url - i.e. .../misc.php?do=flashchat&room=3
* Spys can login into the chat but are not listed in the room - they cannot chat, just watch.
* 3.7.004 onwards has extra code to cope with VBs CSRF protection, which interferes with profile linking.
* 3.7.006 onwards is for Flashchat 5.0.x - The previous version for Flashchat 4 (3.7.005) will continue to be available for the moment.

The CMS file assumes that you are installing Flashchat in your forum root folder - this is the same folder as your usercp.php file and includes folder. Installation will fail if you do not do this.

Support: Please check the instructions, and make sure you have uploaded any files to the correct location - the vast majority of problems reported are due to an error made in editing or uploading files. If you are still stuck and want me to take a look then feel free to PM me your site address, an admin user, and ftp access details, without these I cannot help you. I will look when I have time.

Flashchat 4 : If you have upgraded from 3.6 to 3.7 make sure you have edited the CMS entry in the Flashchat config.php file.


Finally, I am not Tufat.com or Flashchat Support - if you have questions about Flashchat, their forums are here.


To use the this upgraded integration simply download and unzip the file, then follow the instructions in the text file. Once installed, the Flashchat userlevel options for each usergroup will appear in the ACP usergroup edit screens - editing of the CMS file will no longer be required.



History:

v3.7.001 : First release for vb 3.7.
v3.7.002 : Option for Flashchat spy mode added.
v3.7.003 : Fix for 404 page not found error in certain situations.
v3.7.004 : Code added to allow profile views blocked by VB's CSRF protection.

Hi
I got this mod installed as well some others for flashchat, all of them are working just fine

1.
I got some questions regarding to idle users on my Vb board, the thing is that if user stays in flashchat bit longer than board idle time he got logged off, but he is still using flashchat

In who is on chat modification he is there, on Vb-who is online he is shown off so I got discrepancy here
Once I got 10 users on chat and just 2 online on Vbulletin forums

Not a big deal but it kinda bugs me, any pointers to this Paul ?

I posted on Tufats forum, they kinda pointed at you regarding to this...
http://forum.tufat.com/showthread.ph...777#post222777

2.
Is there any chance that we can use in some way tufats flashchat as messanger
Lets say one user sends invitation to other user (they are online), if another user accept invitation at some point they both got automatically are transfered to flashchat where private message window opens.....

I would be willing to donate, as meny others I think
If this is possible, but its kinda too much work, maybe we can open one thread and who is interested to donate he will got modification.....just and idea !?

Thanks for your time
Regards
Goran

There is currently no template hook in the community menu, I have posted a request for one, no idea if it will happen though.

Howdy.

I'm looking at doing a Flashchat integration with vBulletin. I run a band fan website, and my forum members want to be able to chat as they watch the setlist develop online during live performances.

I'd like to set it up so that Flashchat is turned on and off on a pre-determined set schedule. Is there a reasonably easy way to do something like this? If not, would it be the type of thing I would want to try and hire a hack for?

My suggestion also. 5.0.10 is really, really buggy.

So from your links I see you have dumped all the files and folders into your web root. You may need to contact Paul M on this being in the vbulletin37CMS.php file there is a place to edit the path but not sure how it works:

// Path to vbulletin root folder - with trailing '/'
$vbpath = ''; // Leave blank unless you wish to override the default.
Where will I edit can u show me on vbulletin37CMS cause I cant install chat I cant go step 3 while install chat

Hi Paul M

I installed a fresh copy of flashchat 5 and installed a fresh copy of your flashchat 5 vbulletin plugin. Now i can login to flashchat using vbulletin login just fine. But the only problem i get is that when i login to forum and goto chat room i have to login chat room too

When i was using the flashchat 4 setup i didn't get that problem

I tried setting the vb path to

// Path override for vbulletin root folder //
$vbpath = '/home7/username/public_html/forums/'; // This should not normally be changed. //

And chat room loads fine but still i have to login separately

Any idea whats wrong?

Ps im using the latest stable version of vBulletin 3.7.4 Patch Level 1

Changing the path is not supported in FC5, and has (will be ?) removed from the CMS files.

on mytalkcarolina.com, users are still able to go into the chat but when clicking on another user and highlight profile, it loads and says security token is missing, Im unable to find out where this problem, if anyone is using flashchat, could anyone assist me? maybe you added something to your template or maybe my entire template is out of date.

Apparently I dont know what the main problem is, either i try to find it or i should reinstall my entire forum and start over from scratch which I dont want to do, I already put in to much work to it, could anyone help me with this if possible? if you want to look at the problem

mytalkcarolina.com, register and go into the chat and click on your username, profile and then it leads off to a missing security token, that includes the user space for xboxlive gamertag, I dont know what to do, last thing im wanting to do is restart.. but thats way to much..

You just delete FC5 and install FC4
