This modification is no longer available or supported.

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.

When I click on a PROFILE inside of FlashChat, I get the following error:

Your submission could not be processed because a security token was invalid.

If this occurred unexpectedly, please inform the administrator and describe the action you performed before you received this error


I know this is a problem with the out-of-the-box FC integration, however, it looks like this integration is trying to fix it.

Is there something wrong with my site configuration?

Works fine for me, are you sure you uploaded the cms file correctly.

I am sure that I did as I checked the file again by downloading it. It is defiantely your CMS file. I uploaded it again, and reloaded FC and same issue.

It does put the extra info on the URL (#=hex #)

http://www.DOMAIN.com/forum/member.p...##############

If I go to the address bar and press enter, it does redirect properly (but then it isn't a POST any more)

I am not sure if this would be part of the issue, but I do have "Mod Rewrite Friendly URLs" set on the site.

Does it work if you turn that option off ?

It makes no difference on my test site, but then I have no actual mod rewrite rules set. If turning that option off fixes it then you need to look at your rules as they are breaking it.

Hi, thanks for the great mod, works like a charm on my test forum.

Above you mention that the chat can be embedded in an existing page, and for chat in a vb page to link to /misc.php?do=flashchat

How would I embed the chat, lets say, on the main forum.php page or perhaps somewhere on main CMS page?

Is this something that loads in a seperate box on another page, or can it be loaded on the main forum page ?

OK, I tried it disabled and enabled. I am using the .htaccess provided by vBulletin and it doesn't seem to have any bearing on the issue.

I also am getting another error when attempting to view the messages in the Admin area of FlashChat. Once I installed your mod, I know get the following error:

"Error 4.0.4 : No permissions found for usergroup ."

Any ideas on what I should be looking for to resolve this issue?

It was working great...now when i try, I get prompted for LOG ON. I do my VB admin logon and it goes to a blank page.

I goto the chat/admin, it prompts me for a log on. Input log in and get error:

Fatal error: Call to a member function next() on a non-object in /home/blackber/public_html/chat/inc/cmses/statelessCMS.php on line 132


**** I HAD TO UNINSTALL FLASHCAHT AND REINSTALL LOOKS LIKE ALL IS GOOD NOW****

Both those issues suggest you have not imported the product into vb, or you have disabled it (or disabled all plugins ?).
