Not Supported  

Here is a hack spawned off an original idea by Feldon23 for using mIRC sockets to show who is online in your channel.

This hack advances from his in many features, the most obvious being it uses a MySQL table to store the data.
  • It supports multiple channels, not just one. This means you can show who is online on your forum home page for not just one channel, but many (there is a major restriction to this though, please refer to the install.html)
  • Data is passed through sockets by HTTP POST, not GET, therefore more options are available. For one, this hack will show the topic of your channel.
  • The "most users ever in the channel" has a timestamp to go along with it.
  • The most innovative feature of this hack is the activity bar. This guages the activity of your channel by counting how many lines are outputted in the channel every X amount of seconds (this value is definable by you; default is 3 minutes). The activity bar allows people not in the IRC channel to see if there is activity going on inside.
  • Admin Control Panel integration, for easy adding/deleting/editing channels.

This hack operates in the same as Feldon's, in that you MUST be in mIRC and connected to the channel if you wish for the data to be updated. There is no eggdrop required, and no FTP.

About the only known bug/error I've encountered in this hack is a "socket-in-use" error from mIRC. This can happen if you have a busy chatroom with people changing nicks, or leaving and joining the chatroom constantly. In this case, you will want to make some modifications to the ON-events in the remote script.

For more explanation on features, requirements, and restrictions, please refer to the section in install.html.


Version 1.1 - 1/20/04
  • Changed the way data is sent in the remote socket script, to allow more users being. Unfortuantly mIRC sockets aren't very extensive, and through different functions and loops I still wasn't able figure out a way of sending more data. This simply means the max users that will be updated for each channel is around 60 users. (although, I believe it is more than the the 1.0 version)
  • Created another socket connection for the topic & activity, which should reduce the number of "socket-in-use" errors.
  • Renamed two of the config variables which were somewhat ambigious.

Upgrade 1.1 Instructions:
  • Unload your current ircon_rm.txt remote script and ircon_al.txt alias script, and reload the new ones.

Clear your internet cache before downloading.

If you can figure out a way to make an eggdrop for this sort of hack, which is an IRC bot. I don't have a linux nor shell accounts to test out eggdrops.

This hack absolutely requires mIRC. No other way around it. (although.. there are other mIRC-like programs out there, like visualIRC, but still same scenario).

hmm it didn't work where must be the irc client on the server where the forum is ?
It uses mIRC! This hack is totally separate from whether you have some Java chat installed. Explain your problem a bit more, but you need to download mIRC from www.mirc.com, and then configure it as my instructions have said.

If you need an mIRC tutorial, here are some:

I installed this hack, very nice and confusing with no FTP script, but it seems to be working for the most part. The one thing that isnt working: the topic is not being displayed on forumhome. Can you think of why this might be?

In the alias config is below right?

%ircserver = irc.freenode.net
%ircfilepath = /forums/irconline.php
%irckey = xxxxxx
%ircchan = #channelname
%ircwait = 120

then in my irc manager in admincp I have

Handle #channelname
Server #irc.freenode.net

I am not getting any listings in the forum with the current config

Regards
