Flashchat integration with vBulletin 3.6

Note:
Standard Flashchat includes a version of my vBulletin integration as part of the Tufat supplied files - including a working vBulletin 3.6 CMS file. However, the standard files do not include Direct Usergroup Integration or other extra's like the WOL Display & Flashchat on a vBulletin page. This Integration Mod adds those features


Standard vB 3.6 integration features

* Authorised members are automatically logged in.
* Automatic login works even if a member has not ticked "remember me".
* All non authorised members are locked out (this and the above are based on usergroup membership).
* If enabled, Flashchat updates the users session location (displayed in various vBulletin online location displays such as WOL).
* Real ip detection when a proxy server is used (only if the proxy server passes on the details).
* Permanant, Private Rooms are loaded by Admins and Moderators (allows for Staff Rooms).

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 try to automatically add a link to Flashchat in your Quick Links or Navbar - this feature can be disabled if you wish.
* The automatic link can have a prefix path defined - useful if you use something like CMPS.


More notes:

* This integration is for Flashchat versions 4.7.x and above.
* The automatic link feature may fail if you have customised templates.
* 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
* 3.56 onwards has extra code to cope with VBs CSRF protection, which interferes with profile linking (vb 3.6.10+).

The CMS file assumes that you are installing Flashchat in your forum root folder - this is the same folder as your usercp.php file and includes folder. Installation will fail if you do not do this.

Support: Please check the instructions, and make sure you have uploaded any files to the correct location - the vast majority of problems reported are due to an error made in editing or uploading files. If you are still stuck and want me to take a look then feel free to PM me your site address, an admin user, and ftp access details, without these I cannot help you. I will look when I have time.

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


To use the this upgraded 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.

The 3.5 version of who is in the chat will work until a 3.6 version is released.

Any chance of adding the mod for the "What's going on area"?

Superb, always used this and your others.

Looks like a small bug...

in the WOL section, the chat path is shown as http://site/forums/chat/flashchat.php and the url actually links to http://site/forumschat/flashchat.php

the other prob is that the chat is actually installed in forums/FlashChat, not forums/chat



Also, in the vbulletin options, saw an options for "Flashchat height" but no other flashchat option ? wonder what this is about.

Thanks - that was a bug (missing '/') - but in fact the whole path was wrong as it should now link to /misc.php?do=flashchat. Fixed in 3.02A.

Then you have a very old installation, 'chat' has been the default for a year or more. You will probably find that you now get a 404 not found error - edit the phrase "flashchat_path" or rename your chat folder (note: if you have the 'who is chatting mod' it will use the path defined it that mods settings).

The height of the frame.

oh now i see... i still use flashchat in a separate window (using the direct path)...

noticed one prob using the inline version... when i close flashchat, it is opening a nested page (vbulletin wrapper around the whole forum page)...
