Description

When I had left the vBulletin world, I was in the past the co-author of a little chatbox (shoutbox), very well known in the vBulletin world.
This chatbox had been developed by Svaliotti (known as Poseidon on vb.org) for vB2 in the past and I had made the porterage (with is authorisation as we were both members of the same french non-official support forum) and the improvement for vB3.

It is thus normal that in my return in the vBulletin world, I begin by getting down to this hack. Even if several versions of chatbox are already present in the vBulletin world, I said to myself that it would be a good thing to make a made in France.

Naturally, I don't deal with a "copy" version of the other chatbox, I have any coded at the beginning (it was preferable because the front code wasn't so clean any more), and I integrated a good quantity of very interesting features.

New version features

The new version contains all the features from the previous version. Description of these versions can be found in Sofia's post hereabove (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1257510&postcount=3).

Modifications from previous version are the following :
  • 1.5 :
    • Fixed bugs :
      • Chatbox is shown two times in full page mode when the Display on all pages under the navbar option is selected.
      • "Fermer" is not in a sentence.
      • Overflow problem with Netscape.
      • Uppercase transformed to lowercase in the PM channel.
      • The ban cron debans user indefinitly banned.
      • Chatbox continuously loading on some forums.
      • Inactivity and guests problem.
      • Team icon blinking is not working properly.
      • Coma error in the who is online.
      • 2 spaces instead of one between the date and the time.
    • New functionnalities :
      • Option to deactivate the random smilies.
      • Option to deactivate the automatic PM sending when banning a user.
      • New permission to allow or not the downloading of shouts.
      • Option to specify the name under which unregistered users shouts appear.
      • Syntax change for the /ban, /ignore, /del, /pm commands : Possibility to use them with the username or the userid (For more information about the new syntax, check the help button in the chatbox).
    • Removed functionnalities :
This hack is very light in term of queries : only one for every recharging / refreshment of the chatbox and 5 for the statistics in the load of the page if you actiate them. If you don't activate advanced options of course as stated aside each in the acp

Installation

Read the file "Installation" in the pack.

Once the installation is ended, go in usergroups and edit permissions to see the Chatbox.

By default, no group has access to the chatbox.

Screenshots

The screenshots are in french as I have made it on an online website which is in french. Don't hesitate to give me new one if you want in english

They are up to date of 1.3 version.

See the following post : http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1292136&postcount=559

Also, do secondary usergroups that someone may be in, affect the permissions of the primary usergroup? That is, can someone be in 2 groups, but 1 group be able to see the shoutbox, the other group not be able to see the shoutbox...and have the first group override the second in this instance?

If it was modified you have to revert it.

It should have fixed it

Edit :

OMFG ... I am too stupid, It just come to my mind that I partially corrected the problem and that other parts needs to be modified.

I'll send you an updated version tonight (GMT + 1).
rofl! I recevied your email, and followed the instructions. It's running very smoothly now!

Thanks so much

I figured it out with help from a tip from vb.com. I had to manually go through possible plugins and find the culprit and delete. There were still plugins from this hack installed, I removed them, and everything is ok. Thanks for the help though.
You're welcome

I never dig into that part of vBulletin but I think that additional usergroup permissions override primary one.

I am not sure but you could run a test to see and share the answer with us

Only problem is, I discovered this morning, I can't add it to vbacmps. I don't care if it's on there anyway, but someone else might.

Have a safe train ride!

I needed the spanish phrases, so, I translated them and now share them with you, I think it's not bad at all

Thanks for the great script!

BTW! there is "Fermer" instead of a phrase in the help window

Also i can't seem to find this one:

I'm trying to install and very new at all of this. I'm at the stage in the instructions where it says In the additional CSS, add :

/** DEBUT MGC CHATBOX **/
.mgc_cb_date {
color : #555555;
}

.mgc_cb_me {
color : #FF0000;
}
/** FIN MGC CHATBOX **/

And I'm afraid I'm a bit dense as I don't understand what this means. (I understand I need to add that code, but I don't understand what additional CSS is or how I access it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

AdminCP > Styles > Styles Manager

then select one style and pick "Main CSS" in the drop down menu... go to the botton and add the css code to the last box.
