Steam Connect



INFO


-- Steam Connect Addon for vBulletin 4.2.x;
Development Platform := vBulletin 4.1.3 - 4.2.0, Debian Linux, PHP5, MySQL5, apache2;

Dependencies := lib cUrl (PHP), openid (included);

Author := Andreas "Radon" Rudolph, Disasterpiece;

Contact := radon@purgatory-labs.de, http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/member.php?u=198844

Homepage := http://purgatory-labs.de


WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE INSTALLING

This addon is Unsupported as of 2015 until further notice. I have not enough time or interest in vbulletin to keep this alive.

This addon provides a framework for future extensions which make use of the Steam API.
It helps to determine the SteamID of an user. Unless older methods of inserting the steam
id into a user field, the addon lets the user authenticate with Steam OpenID, therefore
you can trust 100%, that this particular user is the same user as the Steam-ID provided.

Users can link their Steam ID to their forum account or they can create a new account
using details pulled from their Steam Profile.
Like the Facebook connect plugin, it allows users to quickly set up a forum account without
having to define a password or an email address. This option can be disabled in the AdminCP,
however it is encouraged to allow users to use this quick-register feature, since they
already authenticated themselves through steam, so any additional password or email
authentication is just unnecessary.

If the user decides to un-link his forum account with his steam-profile, he has to set up
a password and email first, so the forum account remains usable after this.

At the moment, the addon is in its second RC state, which means that the current versions contain mostly bugfixes and are candidates for a full release.
Until now, the product worked without major problems in productive environments.
Although it is stable as is, the author doesn't provide any guarantee.
Due to the nature of the addon and how vBulletin manages 3rd party code inclusion, additional
login and register methods have been provided by the plugin. It is discouraged to use the
plugin on high profile communities in this early development state.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post in this thread.


F.A.Q. / General Issues / Error Messages

"There has been a problem with the OpenID libary: No OpenID Server found at http://steamcommunity.com/openid"
- Additionally, a 503 HTTP error is thrown. Simple solution: Wait. Steam Community servers are overloaded/down right now, there's nothing you can do about it

Do NOT uninstall the mod if you want to keep the linked users records. Upgrading means uploading the new product xml file for the new version and choose "overwrite" in the upload dialog.
The Installer will handle the update process by its own. Uninstalling the product will erase all the table fields which contain the steam link data.

There's a link in the user control panel, you can see it as a small button in the first screenshot.

I have a different functions.php file. Altough I was sure it works on 4.1.0 as well, I developed it on a 4.1.3-4.1.4. I'll check it out tomorrow, or you could just upgrade to the latest vbulletin version. Wouldn't be a bad idea anyway.

Import the attached plugin. Then you'll find the avatar urls as a template var:

Which are the same image, but different in size.

I just looked into the functions.php file from 4.1.0 but it didn't contain any code with get_url.
The whole steam connect addon doesn't use this function too. So either you use a modified functions.php file or there's something else wrong somehow.

Post me the code block around the line where the error occurs in your includes/functions.php, maybe we can make some sense of it.

This is the code that shows for Link


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


I changed to


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

It now allows the correct message when linking the account

I also removed all the following commands

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And now when unlinking the account it will give me the unlink message.

Thanks for the help and again GREAT mod bud!


If anyone else is having the problem with a error when trying to link or unlink your account just let me know and i will upload my login2.php file that fixed it for me. Disasterpeice if you want the login2.php file i modified to work on my version just let me know bud!

Isn't there a high risk that this will make my Steam information available somehow to the wrong people ? Hacking Steam Accounts has become a great hobby for certain people over the years, and I myself was victim of that a couple years back.

This Mod strikes me as putting my Steam account at risk. What you guys think about it ?

Not at all.
The only Information a forum gets, is your encrypted steam number, anything else like passwords or email will remain at steam. That's the advantage of the openID and this mod.

You need to enter a correct API key, which consists of 32 characters of Numbers and Uppercase Characters.
Paste it in the settings field, hit save and the error message should disappear.

There seems to be an issue with the steam button template, where the form elements on the right side won't work if the button is included into the top navigation in the header template.

Solution is to edit the stc_signinbutton template, change <span to <div, </span> to </div> and add this to the CSS > additional.css template:

ofc you may edit the position details according to your template.

I'll add another updated version tomorrow, for now the template/css fix should work.
