Flashchat integration with vBulletin 3.5

Note:
The latest versions of Flashchat include my integration as part of the standard Tufat supplied files - including the vBulletin 3.5 CMS file.



vB 3.5 integration allows ;

* Authorised members to be automatically logged in.
* All non authorised members are locked out (both are based on usergroup membership).
* If enabled, the users location is now displayed in WOL (use the plugin to avoid "Unknown Location").
* The CMS file no longer requires your vb licence code to be entered.
* Automatic login now works even if a member has not ticked "remember me".

Also ;

* 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 in 4.5.0) (allows for Staff Rooms).


More notes:

* This integration is for Flashchat versions 4.7.0 upwards, support for versions prior to this has been withdrawn.
* If you use non standard usergroups you will need to edit the CMS file to give them permission to enter the chat.

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 any file edits carefully, and make sure you have uploaded any edited files to the correct location - the vast majority of problems reported are due to an error made in editing [or uploading] a file. 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 then look as soon as I have time.

Finally, I am not Tufat.com nor anything to do with the Flashchat product - if you have questions about Flashchat in general, their forums are here.


History:

2.53 - Support for customer role added.
2.54 - GetUser caching added.
2.55 - Lastactivity update added, caching altered to match main flashchat code.

I think so, as there are only some small bug fixes in the 4.0.10.

Sorry, but I don't understand why you ask this - how much clearer can I make it ?

This makes the changes to integrate the current Flashchat (4.0.10) with vB 3.5.0 Beta
Note 2: This integration is for Flashchat versions 4.0.9 onwards

Question.

My integration with FlashChat doesn't seem to be working, and I think it might be because of the variable name changes in vBulletin 3.5's config file. So I'm wondering, did you make any changes to FlashChat's vbulletinCMS2.php file besides just entering a license number in?

The problem that I'm experiencing is when I try to load FlashChat, the loading screen does appear to load successfully, but when it redirects to the actual chatroom, nothing but a background shows up.

Yes, the CMS2 file will fail - might I suggest you download and read/implement the instructions.

Works great except I can't get it to recognize admin or mods. The groups are set correctly in the CMS file...hmmm

That's because it hasn't worked.

Make sure you have done all the file edits, to the correct Flashchat files, and uploaded them (it's amazing how many people edit the files locally, and never transfer them .....).

One more thing - which I must add to the instructions - remember to put your vb licence number in the vbulletin35CMS file.

I tried to install this and was unable to get passed stepped two and after reading the flashchat board and site I started to wonder, if it would work if my forum is installed in the root of my site. I posted at the flashchat board but their site appears to not be working last time I checked. So, I guess I'll ask here, if my forum is at www.mysite.com and flashchat is installed in www.mysite.com/chat/ will that work?

Sorry, I don't follow why you cannot get past Step 2 - the first five steps are file edits, steps 2 & 3 edit the same file !

FYI : It doesn't really matter where the chat is installed, relative to the forum, as long as the [relative] path to the vB config file is set correctly in the CMS file. By default, it assumes that the /chat folder is in the same parent folder as /includes /admincp etc, which it appears to be in your case.

Oh sorry, I meant step 2 of the actual flashchat install. Not the hack install.

Oh okay, well I guess I'll mess around with it some more. Thanks.

Oh, okay. I have no idea what the install steps are off the top of my head. The tufat site appears to be off the air atm ....

TUFaT.com (Darren's $5 Script Archive) is temporarily down due to a serious hardware failure (the primary hard drive had bad sectors). It's being fixed now and should be up by morning of July 1, 2005
eeek !
