Steam Connect



INFO


-- Steam Connect Addon for vBulletin 4.2.x;
Development Platform := vBulletin 4.1.3 - 4.2.0, Debian Linux, PHP5, MySQL5, apache2;

Dependencies := lib cUrl (PHP), openid (included);

Author := Andreas "Radon" Rudolph, Disasterpiece;

Contact := radon@purgatory-labs.de, http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/member.php?u=198844

Homepage := http://purgatory-labs.de


WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE INSTALLING

This addon is Unsupported as of 2015 until further notice. I have not enough time or interest in vbulletin to keep this alive.

This addon provides a framework for future extensions which make use of the Steam API.
It helps to determine the SteamID of an user. Unless older methods of inserting the steam
id into a user field, the addon lets the user authenticate with Steam OpenID, therefore
you can trust 100%, that this particular user is the same user as the Steam-ID provided.

Users can link their Steam ID to their forum account or they can create a new account
using details pulled from their Steam Profile.
Like the Facebook connect plugin, it allows users to quickly set up a forum account without
having to define a password or an email address. This option can be disabled in the AdminCP,
however it is encouraged to allow users to use this quick-register feature, since they
already authenticated themselves through steam, so any additional password or email
authentication is just unnecessary.

If the user decides to un-link his forum account with his steam-profile, he has to set up
a password and email first, so the forum account remains usable after this.

At the moment, the addon is in its second RC state, which means that the current versions contain mostly bugfixes and are candidates for a full release.
Until now, the product worked without major problems in productive environments.
Although it is stable as is, the author doesn't provide any guarantee.
Due to the nature of the addon and how vBulletin manages 3rd party code inclusion, additional
login and register methods have been provided by the plugin. It is discouraged to use the
plugin on high profile communities in this early development state.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post in this thread.


F.A.Q. / General Issues / Error Messages

"There has been a problem with the OpenID libary: No OpenID Server found at http://steamcommunity.com/openid"
- Additionally, a 503 HTTP error is thrown. Simple solution: Wait. Steam Community servers are overloaded/down right now, there's nothing you can do about it

Do NOT uninstall the mod if you want to keep the linked users records. Upgrading means uploading the new product xml file for the new version and choose "overwrite" in the upload dialog.
The Installer will handle the update process by its own. Uninstalling the product will erase all the table fields which contain the steam link data.

You never 'mentioned' where you changed this though. Showing the code is awesome, but the location of where to find it is another question.

Had another idea. Hopefully this one is good like my last one was.

Regarding the Steam avatars, when they're online in Steam, the border is Green. When they're offline, it's Blue. When you click the avatar, it sends you to their community profile.
Did anyone ever figure out how to accomplish this?

By the way, this is how I tackle the issue with non-Steam avatars not showing up using the method outlined previously in this thread. I'm sure the code isn't proper and I'm no programmer but this works for me.

Indeed.. would be nice if people are showing code, to mention where it should be placed to begin with.

Thanks.. that code worked for me.. had to make a few small modification in the postbit template with you code but works like a charm.


Anyone have a fix for referrals not working if they register using a steam id?

In the addons settings you can specify a logfile. Errors should appear there as well. Set up a logfile path, replicate the error and check if an error message appears in the log

Thank you for replying.

I've created a file and set permissions to 777. It looks like this http://puu.sh/gutE5/01ed3685ef.png

However, when i try to sign in through Steam and get the error there is nothing written in this file.

The path needs to be absolute, as the description hints.

Find out how the directory of your vbulletin installation is called, so instead of steam_connect_log.txt, there needs to be something like

/var/www/mydomain.com/httpdocs/steam_connect_log.txt

on linux servers and

C:/htdocs/mydomain.com/steam_connect_log.txt

on windows servers. I cannot help you with this, contact your provider in case you have no idea where to get that information.
