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.

I'm sorry if i sound n00bish.. but i can't find where to put my customer number in your vBulletin37cms..... I Tried to continue install without it and i think that may have messes something up...

http://main.precisionforums.com/misc...ashchat&room=1 is the forum where it has been installed to.

http://main.precisionforums.com/chat/ is the install file

None of the vbulletin CMS files need a customer number in them.

Yes i did a bit of cross support and saw your name all over it so I didn't feel bad. May I point the thread to others as it makes it extremely easy to understand (i got links to get 3 files)

I have done everything I can think of to get this to work, but still no luck.
I have had a look through the settings in the admin cp and can't see that anything is wrong, but I could of missed something.

Are all of the settings by default for admins to have access and also admin access?
When I load up the page all I get is the normal blue mac screen, nothing else.


Thanks, Mr. Hoddz
