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.

so the installation skip the step 3 of the installation ... how i can fix this? thanks

(i've also posted into FC board)
I got the same error. But I got it installed and it's working fine

What you need to do: remove 11 tables that FC created in your database. Redo the install from scratch, when you get the error at step 3 like this

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

just click your mouse on the end of the url (step=3 or something like that) on the address bar and hit Enter to keep going, it will work just fine.


I know it's weird but it seems to work fine for me, so I'll just share my experience

I installed this hack.. but not sure how to take advantage of it's features.. for example...
* Flashchat can be displayed embedded inside a 'standard' vBulletin Page (i.e. not full screen).

K I set one of my usergroups to login as spy-mode.. how do they do it? Cuz when they login we can still see them. Is there a particular command?

FlashChat Permissions
No Chat Access
I noticed my flashchat permissions don't work correctly. Are they being overridden by another setting somewhere else?

When i try to add in the product manager, once i add the XML file and click continue, the screen stays stuck on "Setting CMS value" and its corresponding yellow progress bar, that keeps extending to the left.

I have tried to reinstall several times, and still same result. Any help? Thanx.

Are you sure that spy mode is the only permission you have given them.

This suggests your flashchat is not fully installed correctly.

I installed this MOD, and Flash Chat not working any more (FC admin panell too...give me this error: Fatal error: Call to a member function next() on a non-object in /home/pijanitv/public_html/forum/chat/inc/cmses/statelessCMS.php on line 130)

When I try to open FC, it load and then freeze, just blue template of FC on screen.

I have FC v5.09 and vBulletin v3.7.4 PL1

What to do now?
Should I reinstall FC? If yes, should I first uninstall this MOD?

Your Flashchat is not configured to integrate with vb - hence the use of stateless.php in the message.

Installing this cannot alter whether you are actually integrated, since that is controlled by the flashchat config file.

Reinstall FC and on the very first step, check the box saying you want to integrate FC with a CMS. Then select your version of vB on the next page and continue with the installation. Then install this mod/hack.
