Steam Connect



INFO


-- Steam Connect Addon for vBulletin 4.2.x;
Development Platform := vBulletin 4.1.3 - 4.2.0, Debian Linux, PHP5, MySQL5, apache2;

Dependencies := lib cUrl (PHP), openid (included);

Author := Andreas "Radon" Rudolph, Disasterpiece;

Contact := [email protected], http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/member.php?u=198844

Homepage := http://purgatory-labs.de


WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE INSTALLING

This addon is Unsupported as of 2015 until further notice. I have not enough time or interest in vbulletin to keep this alive.

This addon provides a framework for future extensions which make use of the Steam API.
It helps to determine the SteamID of an user. Unless older methods of inserting the steam
id into a user field, the addon lets the user authenticate with Steam OpenID, therefore
you can trust 100%, that this particular user is the same user as the Steam-ID provided.

Users can link their Steam ID to their forum account or they can create a new account
using details pulled from their Steam Profile.
Like the Facebook connect plugin, it allows users to quickly set up a forum account without
having to define a password or an email address. This option can be disabled in the AdminCP,
however it is encouraged to allow users to use this quick-register feature, since they
already authenticated themselves through steam, so any additional password or email
authentication is just unnecessary.

If the user decides to un-link his forum account with his steam-profile, he has to set up
a password and email first, so the forum account remains usable after this.

At the moment, the addon is in its second RC state, which means that the current versions contain mostly bugfixes and are candidates for a full release.
Until now, the product worked without major problems in productive environments.
Although it is stable as is, the author doesn't provide any guarantee.
Due to the nature of the addon and how vBulletin manages 3rd party code inclusion, additional
login and register methods have been provided by the plugin. It is discouraged to use the
plugin on high profile communities in this early development state.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post in this thread.


F.A.Q. / General Issues / Error Messages

"There has been a problem with the OpenID libary: No OpenID Server found at http://steamcommunity.com/openid"
- Additionally, a 503 HTTP error is thrown. Simple solution: Wait. Steam Community servers are overloaded/down right now, there's nothing you can do about it

Do NOT uninstall the mod if you want to keep the linked users records. Upgrading means uploading the new product xml file for the new version and choose "overwrite" in the upload dialog.
The Installer will handle the update process by its own. Uninstalling the product will erase all the table fields which contain the steam link data.

I'd like to add:


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

The steam login system doesn't work properly anymore as it can only read 1 api at a time. If I add another / new one. it reads from the second rather than the first one when I add for example player_info in the additional fields. I really could use some help with this adding more API's to the system.

I don't understand. Can you give an example?

You query only one api URL at a time, more isn't possible.

what if i set a primary group, but when he/she unlinks it, it would switch his primary usergroup?

can this be achieved?

also, why does it force steam avatar into the profile picture?

This plugin is interfering with vBMC - vBulletin Motion Captcha and making it go blank.
This steam plugin has been disabled for now......

Hi there, when a user goes to register with this, it redirects them to steam, and back to our forums.
But our forums become without a template.
Any help with this?

I checked the "Add Steam Icon to postbit" is active, Steam Web API Key is ok because I can login via steam connection. And I added {vb:raw post.steamicon} manually.
I am using vb 4.2.2 , what can be the problem for steam icon that cant be seen?
Add it to postbit_legacy as well as postbit.

Just want to say thank you for making a very clean and well maintained mod.

This is far better than any facebook/google/openid connect mod I've ever used.

Hi, the product works fine, but if a user does not link your account current profile picture disappears and the default sets. But if you link the account gets the photo of steam.

You understand what I mean?

What I'm saying is, if a user has no account should you STEAM not take the picture.

Sorry for my English, is a bit difficult and use a translator

login2.php?do=login not working

Hey,

If I disable the group "Unregistered / Not Logged In" setting "Can View Forum". login2.php?do=login does nothing and wont redirect to the openid gateway for steam.

I want to block all non registered users from seeing the forums, however, this is stopping me.
