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.

v3.7.001 : First release for vb 3.7.

I need a little help here.
I have just purchased the flash chat this morning (latest version) and was hoping to have it all wrapped up in a short while.... several hours later..

After discovering that it wont run on 3.7, I did my reading though this and found the fix that you highlighted paul. I posted a link to the fix on Tufat forum so that if anyone alse had the same problem they could find your code.

I added the file you provided paul (thanks) but I still cant install on the 3.6 (which is necessary before changing the config file to 3,7).

Anyway, I went back to the forums at tufat to leave a message querying when the update would be released and... i,ve been permantly banned for spamming! How did that happen.

Leave me stuck as I cant get the support now that I had hoped for.

I feel that $5.00 is pretty cheap for this package (having reviewed it on a couple of other sites) but it seems a knightmare to get up and running on 3.7

If anyone finds out when they release the patch, please leave a message here so that I can re download, hopefully the patch realease will make things easier.

As for the tufat forum, I am bewildered by the banning and add this here so that anyone requesting support for them doesn't end up with the same problem.

I tried to read up some but may have missed it... can anyone tell me how 'heavy' this mod is? I'm looking for a chat option for my forum and it will be used pretty regularly, but I had issues with my previous chat sucking up wayyyy too much bandwidth so I'm looking for an option that wont eat up all my resources.
Thanks a lot...
Bryan

You need to go to the Tufat forums for help/advice on Flashchat.

From reading their forum,It looks like version 5 has a couple of integration issues. They mention they are working on it but no time frame.

same problem here.

I've installed everything properly, but when i try to log in, it shows the loading window and after that ONLY the blue background and nothing else. it simply won't start.

I've checked my uploads, uploaded everything again in binaries mode but still no success.

Same problem here.

Just can't get it to work on 3.7 u_u.

I just can't find the files to make the integration, the config.php file in the inc directory of the flash chat doesnt content the lines in this mod description, so i can do anithing.

is it just me ?.

Lumis Out.

5.0.1 was buggy as well. 5.0.2 is mentioned to be released in a few hours. I will have to throw up a page to see if it works.
