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 := radon@purgatory-labs.de, 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.

Check if you have the plugin "Add Steam Icon to postbit" activated.

Also check if you have the correct steam API key set up. The apikey works only on the one particular domain which it's registered on, all others will cause a forbidden error.

When hovering over the steam icon, do you see a tooltip (title) ?

Not possible right now. the api doesn't cover the calender.

This might be a little bit unintuitive, but it already checks the group membership at the registration and when linking/unlinking the steam account. Reason is, that it takes a bunch of queries to do and therefore it wouldn't be so wise to put it in a sheduled task which runs at a certain interval.

See above, you won't get moved to the usergroup, only when linking/unlinking steam.
Maybe I find a way to make this a bit more performant.
But I see that there is one thing missing: Automated group assignment when changing the group in admincp. Will fix that soon.

That's the thing. I unlinked/linked myself, and it never moved me to the new usergroup while I'm the only one in the steam group. According to your plugin, it said 1 member is in the steam group which is me.

Also check if you have the correct steam API key set up. The apikey works only on the one particular domain which it's registered on, all others will cause a forbidden error.

API is correct. Otherwise people can't use the steam login feature.

Check if you have the plugin "Add Steam Icon to postbit" activated.
What plugin? I don't see any such option in the steam connect settings nor is it within the Steam Mini Profiles option.

When hovering over the steam icon, do you see a tooltip (title) ?
Well you have a link to the forums . The only thing I see when I hover over the icon is "SteamID: steam_x_xxxxxxx" as image title.

Invalid Redirect after Steam Login

First, many thanks to Andreas for his great work on this mod. I've been reviewing it to learn more about vBulletin [v4.1.12] customization.

I've come across an issue when logging in through Steam. Specifically, I get an invalid redirect error (from VB) after successfully logging into Steam. I am, however, logged into VB despite the error (I can click on the Forum link and post). This happens with FireFox, Chrome, Safari and IE7. For some reason, IE9 does not have this problem.

As best as I can determine, the problem happens in the do_login_redirect() function in functions_login.php. For some reason, the $vbulletin->url is pointing to the steamcommunity.com URL and not the VB domain. I patched this function to force the URL to the VB forum URL and it's working.

Of course, this is not a long term solution...But, if anyone can shed some light on why this "Invalid Redirect" happens, I'd appreciate it.

This is new, thanks for reporting it. I'll try to reproduce it and see what I can do to fix it permanently.

Hey, ever since I updated some users have their steam id appear as INVALID ID. It is correct when I look at it in their profile, so what should I do to debug?

Great news! We are going to enable the steam connect on the Futuremrk/YouGamers forum and tie it all in with the Futuremark steam functions soon. There are some really cool things that are in the works that I am really exited about, this being one of them..
You are fixing to get a really nice poster child to show off you mod with Disasterpiece..

With this fixing to happen it gave me an idea. We are useing 15 themes on the site and I though it would be cool if the steam button could be matched to the themes. It would require you to add so code to be able to choose the button for an individual theme. I think it would be an asset to all who are using this, Just not sure how hard it would be for you to add it to the mod..

The steam button is already a template file which can be overwritten in any custom template by editing the "stc_signinbutton" template

Great addon, very useful.

Got a few questions though. How would I go about making this addon retrieve the actual Steam ID of the account (You know.. steam_0:0:123456) and having it create a profile field with it? Also, I just can't seem to get the steam icon to work in the postbit, dunno what I'm doing wrong, followed your instructions to the dot.

There has also been an update for steam mini profiles. So if you use those, make sure to update them after you updated steam connect.

The Steam_0:0:111 styled id is saved in the usertable and should be available at all times in the userinfo via:
{vb:raw userinfo.steam_code}
where userinfo is the varname of the according userinfo array.
How would you like the profile field to appear? I'm not sure I know exactly what you want to have. A profile field in the postbit with the other user information like number of posts and such? Or as an editable profile field in the userCP?

Also, I just can't seem to get the steam icon to work in the postbit, dunno what I'm doing wrong, followed your instructions to the dot.
If you like you can send me a PM with a link to your forum and an administrative account so I can insert it.

I just updated, and for some reason in the AdminCP at the steam connect settings, I see:

With at the left: Dependant Steamgroup identifier

At the right, an "option" text being "stc_secondary_group_id"

Is this normal? Seeing it's text, I can't fill any option in it.
