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.

Im having a problem signing in with it for some reason.. After i hit the sign in with steam button, it brings me to the steam site. I hit login and it brings up this:
You don't have permission to access /login2.php on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

I have done chmod 777 to the login2.php just to see if it would do anything and still nothing. Any help would be appreciated.

What does the url say when seeing the 404 error?

Does the login2.php exist in the forum root at the same place where the index.php and login.php is located?

Can you see the login2.php if you enter it into the url manually?

The login2.php is in the same forum root.

When I try to view manually I get this message in the Forums:

Hm, you're correct. Seems like the newest php version has some sort of failsafe for this :P

Corrected and updated in a second.

Very good add-on, but is it possible that you would make it for 3.8.x?

I'm going against your recommendation and using it in production. It's working great http://xenogamers.org if you wanna test it.

Can you add the ability for Administrators to see the steam account it's linked too, or pull the STEAMID of the person?

This would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

I get this error when trying to link accounts:

Empty or invalid Steam ID transfered!
Any ideas what went wrong?

EDIT:
It seems other members are able to link with no problems. I was thinking it could have been because I am an unalterable user, I changed that but still same error.

Did you set up a steam community profile?
Do you use any unusual steam settings like a private profile or do not use a steam avatar?

Other reasons may be an issue with the vb datastore. Do you use an advanced datastore like xcache or memcached?

The only thing I have private on my profile is the Comments are Friends Only.

We do not use xcache or memcached.

So far I am the only one that seems effected by this. I do have a somewhat older steam account, late 2006. But I doubt that could be effecting it.
