Hack Support

This hack is now discontinued - this means that while it will remain available for download and use, there will be no further updates, nor will support be provided as the thread is no longer monitored.

Please click Mark as Installed if you are using this hack.


vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can only be used with vBulletin v3.7.x.


What Does This Hack Do?

This is a port of my v3.6 version.

This is an add on for my Flashchat: Who is chatting (Add On) hack, which in turn is an add-on/enhancement to Paul M's Flashchat: Who is chatting v 3.7.002.

NOTE: Only install this if you have vBadvanced (http://www.vbadvanced.com/) CMPS installed (with vBadvanced CMPS 3.0.0 being the minimum version that supports vBulletin v 3.7.x).

You really only need to install either this hack or my Flashchat: Who is chatting (vBadvanced Add-On Module), as this is a vBulletin Product and that is a vBadvanced Module.


What hacks need installing before installing this hack?
These hacks need to be installed in this order and working correctly, for this hack to work.

FlashChat (http://www.tufat.com/s_flash_chat_chatroom.htm) v 4.7.x (v5.x.x has not been tested with this hack)
Paul M's Flashchat: Integration for vB 3.7 v 3.7.005
Paul M's Flashchat: Who is chatting v 3.7.002
Mosh's Flashchat: Who is chatting (Add On) v 3.7.002
Then install this hack


This does not change the functionality of my add-on hack, this adds an the ability to display a Members currently using Flashchat box on vBadvanced CMPS as well as the other locations in my original Flashchat: Who is chatting (Add On) hack.


Code that is used in this hack is mainly Paul M's and once again he has kindly given me permission to use the code in my Who is chatting add-on hacks. I have also used part of the description from his hack as well.

Thank you Paul, for all your work on the Flashchat integration, it makes all our lives easier :)


What It Does


It displays the chat list under the navbar on the vBadvanced portal page.
The list view is collapsible, so you see just the number.
Users who should display as coloured or bold etc are displayed correctly (based on the display usergroup)
If you 'hover' over a username it will show the room they are chatting in and their status (away etc).
If the chat is empty, a simple "No one is currently using the chat." message is displayed.
The ability to select if enabled on vBadvanced portal.
Display the Most Ever chatters if enabled.

Note: This hack cannot display any bots in the chat, due to the strange way that FlashChat stores this information.


Installation Instructions

Import the ms_wic_addon_vba.xml into vB using the AdminCP Product Manager. If upgrading from an earlier version, then set Allow Overwrite to Yes.

Use this hack instead - Flashchat: Who is chatting (vBadvanced Add-On Module)

Thanks for the update, but it is not working on my VBA portal. I have upgraded the prerequisite files for FlashChat integration, Who Is Chatting, Who Is Chatting (Addon) and Who Is Chatting (VBA). I had this working on VB 3.68, and the Who Is Chatting block is currently working on the forum display. On VBA, it appears where I want it, but only as a ghost block. The block, outline and images are there, but no text. I have the global variable set in VBA. Any ideas?

Did you do Steps 2 and 3 from my Who Is Chatting (Addon) hack?

2. In Plugins & Products > Plugin Manager, edit the Members in Flashchat (2) plugin. Find if ($vbulletin->options['enable_wic']) and replace with if ($vbulletin->options['enable_wic'] && !$vbulletin->options['wicao']), this needs to be done so there are not 2 "Members currently using Flashchat" boxes displayed on the forum homepage display.
3. In vBulletin Options > Who Is Using Flashchat > Code Option, ensure the Run Code on all pages radio button is selected.

I'm not sure why, but unless this was a new setting it must have reverted during the upgrade. All works well once again. Many thanks!

Cool, glad it works :)

The setting was not new, it is part of Paul M's Who is Chatting hack.
