This modification is no longer available or supported.

Flashchat integration with vBulletin 3.7

Note: Flashchat Version 5.0.8 onwards now has the option for vbulletin 3.7 integration.

Note:
Standard Flashchat includes vBulletin integration as part of the Tufat supplied files. However, the standard integration does not include Direct Usergroup Integration or other extra's like the WOL Display & Flashchat on a vBulletin page. This Modification adds those features


Standard vB 3.7 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.
* You can define a usergroup to login as Flashchats "Spy" mode. (Version 3.7.002 onwards)


More notes:

* This integration is for Flashchat versions 4.7.x or 5.0.x (seperate downloads).
* The automatic link feature may fail if you have customised templates (it uses template hooks).
* 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
* Spys can login into the chat but are not listed in the room - they cannot chat, just watch.
* 3.7.004 onwards has extra code to cope with VBs CSRF protection, which interferes with profile linking.
* 3.7.006 onwards is for Flashchat 5.0.x - The previous version for Flashchat 4 (3.7.005) will continue to be available for the moment.

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.

Flashchat 4 : If you have upgraded from 3.6 to 3.7 make sure you have edited the CMS entry in the Flashchat config.php file.


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.



History:

v3.7.001 : First release for vb 3.7.
v3.7.002 : Option for Flashchat spy mode added.
v3.7.003 : Fix for 404 page not found error in certain situations.

Paul, I think there is a major bug in permission calculation:


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

This causes any user who is a member of several usergroups to not being able to use the chat - unless all groups do have permissions > 0.

This is inconsistent behaviour, as all other usergroup permissions in vBulletin are additive, eg. if I have a permission in any of my membergroups I do have the permission, no matter if I do hve it in all of my membergroups or not.

Sorry but I dont see any bug here - you must have set at least one permission for a usergroup (noaccess, user, mod, admin or banned). The default value is 1 (user). fcpermissions should never have the value of zero, something is broken if it does.

That is the bug.

Having the permissions at 0 is perfectly valid in vBulletin, as usergroup permissions are always additive.

I had the same problem. A new group that I created and added to some users stopped them from getting into chat. Took a minuet to figure out that the new group that was added in addition to the normal Register User group didn't have permission and was stopping them from getting into chat.

I dont care if its valid in vb, I already explained once that its not valid for this modification.

There is no bug, period.

This works fine - but it puts a Live Chat link in my Quick Links that points to:

/misc.php?do=flashchat&room=1

And I want it, to instead, point to:

/chat

How do I fix this??

Hello everyone, thank you in advance for any help.

I recently downloaded the flashchat mod, unfortunately I am a complete newb at this type of thing and I would greatly appreciate some step by step instructions for installing it on to my vb3.7 forums, I would like for the chat to appear on the home page under the statistics.

Thank you again,
Frank

ty so much for this great hack i'm using it from long time and is working perfectly.

I do have a little issue, after reinstalling everithing to a new server + upgraded to vb 370 (I'm using the latest today version of this hack on f.c.4.7.12)

In short, the issue :
If an user has accents on its name - after all theese upgrades - its nick will be displayed inside the chat with a strange code.

for example one of my mod nick is _7000caffè and is perfectly displayed onto vb
but if she enter F.chat then will be displayed on nick list as: [_7000caff�></adu><uclc id="12812" u="81" t="11:44"><![CDATA[16777215] 11:50:

This was not happening b4 (with vb3.6.9 with same FC4.7.12 + the appropriate 3.6 version integration).
My question: Is this something related to this hack, or something on configuration, or as I dumped all in a new server (mysql and php are newer version as b4 could be mysql?)

I have no clue Idea how to fix this . Can u pls help me or give me some hints. I tried to see veronica's similar solutions on tufat forums, w/o results and then, those are non european languages, a simple accent should be normally managed i guess)

ty so much and regards

ciao
