Flashchat 5 or 6 : Integration for vBulletin 3.8

This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (22 votes - 4.86 average) Installs: 401
Released: 09 Jan 2009 Last Update: 28 Apr 2009 Downloads: 2834
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Translations  

This modification is no longer available or supported.

Note: I no longer use Flashchat, and development and support of it at Tufat appears to have died in 2010.



Flashchat 5 integration with vBulletin 3.8.

Note: This is compatible with Flashchat 5.0.x only, it will not work with Flashchat 4.

* Flashchat 5 is no longer available - this should work with Flashchat 6, but this is not a supported option *

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


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 Navbar Quick Links or Community Links - 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.


More notes:

* This integration is for Flashchat version 5 only.
* 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.

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

Support: This modification is no longer supported. 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.

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:

v3.8.001 : First release for vb 3.8.
v3.8.002 : Fixed who is online location to work with FC 5.

Hello there,

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.
I had a closer look at this and saw that this requires FC to be installed into the root of the vBulletin directory.

Perhaps I'm wrong? Is the CMS file you're referring to vbulletin38CMS.php? Are there lines I can edit in there if I want FC to be installed in the /forums/chat/ directory?

If /forums/ is your forum root folder, then /forums/chat/ is the correct place to install it.

I am currently running

Flashchat Integration 3.7.005 Integration of Flashchat and vBulletin 3.7
FlashChat: Admin Panel Integration 3.7.005 Integration of the FlashChat Admin Panel into vBulletin Admin Control Panel.


The instructions do not indicate what to do with upgrading or do I need to uninstall all the previous versions and install this "new"


the current files I have downloaded (not installed yet) are

Flashchat-vb-integration
ms_fc_admincp


Do I need anything else in particular ?

Hello,

I was successfully able to install this in vb 3.8 and have marked as installed. This is my first time adding any chat stuff to my forums. Thanks a lot for your work.

You may want to add a note to your installation instructions that the /forums/chat/ directory suggested in the FC installation instructions is the correct directory to install it. As you could tell from my post, I felt like the words in red above suggest that I needed to install directly into /forums/ rather than /forums/chat/.

I'm going to set about configuring it now. Thanks again for your work.

I suggest:

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