Note: I no longer use Flashchat, and development and support of it at Tufat appears to have died in 2010.

Flashchat 6 Integration with vBulletin 4.x.x
Flashchat 4 & Flashchat 5 are not supported by this Integration.

vBulletin 4.0.1 broke the automatic login of vb members into Flashchat, this is fixed in mod version 4.0.5 onwards.

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


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 automatically add a link to Flashchat in your Navbar Quick Links or Community Links - this feature can be disabled if you wish.
* The automatic link can have a prefix path defined - useful if you use something like vBA.
* You can define a usergroup to login as Flashchats "Spy" mode.


More notes:

* 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.

Note: This modification is not Flashchat - you must obtain and install that first - this is just vBulletin / Flashchat Integration. You must also install Flashchat into a folder called 'chat' in your forum root folder i.e. (/forums/chat/) - this is the same folder as your usercp.php file and includes folder. This modification will fail if you do not do this.

Finally, I am not Tufat.com or Flashchat Support - if you have questions about Flashchat, their forums are here.

To use the this 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.


Support

This modification is not supported.

For all the people who are having trouble to autologin into the chat and donīt like the white page with all the text:
Instead of just linking to "/chat/" you have to link to "/chat/flashchat.php" and you will be taking directly to the chat. (provided your cookiesettings are ok).

Thanks for the great integration.

Just a quickie if anyone has an answer

I have added the chat (done this before so never been an issue)

The chat works ok etc but the text or the input text is pretty much transparent or wrong colour whatever you set it at?

I have done the normal steps deleted everything / reinstalled in correct orders but to no avail

Hello all, I have FlashChat installed and the integration (Thanks Paul) everything is working great. The only problem I have is I can't find any of the usergroup options in ACP.

Can anyone help out with this?

Did anybody else's copy of Flashchat 6 stop working when they upgraded to 4.0.8? Mine did Now everybody (including me) gets a white empty box when they visit the Flashchat link, and it is coming up "Flashchat does not appear to be correctly installed." in the WGO box.

Any suggestions on how to fix this would very much be appreciated!! I definitely haven't altered anything Flashchat related for a long time, so it definitely appears to be related to the forum upgrade.

Just the normal VB upgrade routine... uploaded the new VB system files over the old ones, followed the step by step upgrade process in the AdminCP. Turned the forum back on. Nothing else.

No idea then, it would need access to your server to determine. If the WGO mod is giving that message then it cannot see Flashchat for some reason, usually because some of the files are missing.

Scroll down to "Usergroups" then "Usegroup manager" - Select the user group and click on "go" - scroll down until you see "FlashChat Permissions (Choose one only) "

Set your options there for that particular user group.

Hope it helps.

I just re-downloaded the FC package straight from the Tufat website, and re-copied everything over - not an overwrite, just told it to ignore any existing files and only copy the ones which aren't already there onto the server.

Anyway after that, the problem is still happening So apparently its not due to missing files. Buggered if I can work out what the issue is. Might just have to do a complete re-install

Googled the error above and found others who came across it as well during installation, but nobody to date has been able to supply a working solution.

*sigh* oh well... there goes out chat program
