Toksta Chat Integration
Mod Version: 1.00, by veenuisthebest (Member) veenuisthebest is offline
Developer Last Online: Feb 2012 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (2 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 35
Released: 22 Apr 2009 Last Update: 22 Apr 2009 Downloads: 292
Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits External Content  

toksta provides highly scalable instant messenger and chat solutions for online communities such as social networks, dating sites and forums. All applications are hosted by toksta and offer a rich design customization.

Integrate the toksta IM in less than 5 minutes and increase user engagement and time on site. Excite your community.

Steps to Install:-

1. Register an account with toksta - Add Application (Add Site) - Select Free Plan - Note the App ID and App Password

2. Upload toksta_controller.html to the root of your domain. The file must be available through www.your-domain.com/toksta_controller.html afterwards.

3. Import the Product -> go to vBulletin Option Settings -> Instant Toksta Chat -> enter your App ID and App Password and Enable the product.

4. Edit your footer template and add this at the very end:-


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


Steps to Uninstall:-

1. Uninstall the Product.

2. Remove the Toksta Chat code from the footer template that you added in Step 4.


Pros:- Looks cool, can bring some fun | No bandwidth, server usage as everything is hosted on their server.

Cons:- Not for everybody as it may bring down forum activity | Currently only Mozilla Firefox is supported but they are constantly upgrading their code so all browsers should be supported very soon.


FAQ:-

a) Should work for all 3.X version of vBulletin.
b) To disable chat for certain usergroups, simply edit the conditional part in the Step 4 code. Also note that I have already disabled chat for Guests and Banned usergroup (1 and 8).
c) If the chatbar doesn't show up - Make sure you have enabled the product (its disabled by default), and confirm your App ID and App Password.
d) About load - just 1 small global plugin, 0 queries.
e) Don't ask for a Demo please as I don't have one. It would take a minute to install this and test yourself.
f) Also check out the paid plans at their site if you are interested in a lot of customizations and higher limits. Free plan is very basic but sufficient for most of us.

Toksta now support integration with vbulletin officially. SO BETTER USE THEIR VERSION INSTEAD OF THIS.

Hope you like it. Please Mark As Installed.

$39 a month for the cheapest non-ad supported plan. That's extremely expensive.

They have no demos or screenshots.

Thanks for the mod at least.

My question is the same...
Is this tool will search the friends from the vbulletin users data base or from Toksta?

It's really good I have been waiting for something like this for a very long time.

The ads aren't even that to intrusive at all.

I would say though there are a few issues with this.

1) I keep losing connection to the server where the chat bar will disappear.
2) If you have a large forum with hundreds of people on at once it will probably crash or not display the chat there should be an option to allow it to show ONLY friends who are online a little like FaceBook.

All the same it's such a useful addition and for it to be offered free of charge is amazing let's just hope this doesn't end up like other mods that are usually this good in the modification graveyard.

OK I have logged into my site with my laptop and it works on it. I log in with my cpu and it doesnt work.

I have the latest update for firefox on mt desktop and an older version of firefox on my laptop.
I am assuming that this is the reason why it works on my laptop and not my desktop.

Am I safe to assume this?

I have it installed and running, but I agree that it seems like the connection gets dropped a lot. I have yet to get anyone to try chatting with me, but I have sent out a couple of requests, only to lose the server connection before anything comes back.

I have had to disable this on my forum due to the constant connection loss and the chat bar disappearing randomly this modification is unusable.

*WAITS FOR BETTER/FIXED RELEASE*

No, its not. It has its own Friends/Contacts feature. It you look at their Pricing Chart, they provide Simple API (e.g. sync friends) only for Lite plans and above. As said, Free plan is really basic.

Thats correct. I read somewhere that Free plan won't handle more than 50 users online at a time. I remember that when they launched this service, they had most of the Pro features available in the Free one too. But now with their new code (that has changed just 3-4 days back) , they have gone very limited in their Free plan. You can compare the features in the Pricing chart. Also give some time reading their FAQ, has lots of info.

If you turned yourself offline (in the chatbar), the Chatbar still remains there. You just need to set your status back to online.

lol this integration plugin has nothing to do with it, just have a look at the code. Everything is hosted/processed and done off their server. If you're getting disconnected etc, then its their problem. You can ask via support ticket to them, they do reply.

Their service is really new and they are working constantly in improving and making it more stable. This is one reason the whole app is hosted on their server in order to upgrade easily for all.
