FlashChat - Who is in the chat.

This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 3.5.x Rating: (1 vote - 5.00 average) Installs: 553

This modification is no longer available or supported.

This is a simple display of who is currently chatting in FlashChat - on the forum homepage display.

The main features of Version 4.xx are basically the same as previous versions ;

1. It displays the list on Forum Home with the "Users online" display.
2. The list view is collapsable, so you see just the number.
3. Users who should display as coloured or bold etc are displayed correctly (based on the display usergroup)
4. If you 'hover' over a username it will show the room they are chatting in and their status (away etc).
5. If the chat is empty, a simple "no one is chatting" message is displayed.
6. The hack is now phrased.
7. The ability to turn it on/off is in the ACP Forum Home Options.
8. The ability to allow only certain usergroups to view the list is an ACP option.
9. The location of the flashchat folder is now an ACP option (vBulletin Options > Forums Home Page Options).

Unzip the XML and import into vB using the ACP Product Manager.

To upgrade from version 4.10 onwards, you need to re-import the product with the overwrite option set to yes. To upgrade from version 4.02 to version 4.10 onwards, you need to uninstall the product and remove the template code in FORUMHOME - then upload the new product. To upgrade from version 3.xx to version 4.xx you need to delete the existing plugin and remove the template code in FORUMHOME - then upload the new product.

* An add-on to display a 'Most ever chatters' count is available here.


Note: This hack cannot display any bots in the chat, due to the strange way that flashchat stores this information. Please also note that I am not Tufat.com or anything to do with the Flashchat product - if you have questions about Flashchat in general, their forums are here.



History:

v4.10 : Removed the need to edit the FORUMHOME template.
v4.11 : Hyperlinked display icon to chat page. Added vb number formatting to count.
v4.12 : Added ALT tag to above hyperlink.
v4.13 : Updated ACP view permission option to take into account secondary groups.
v4.14 : Added 'nofollow' attribute to listed usernames.
v4.15 : Restricted list based on flashchat autologout parameter, to get round the issue of connections not being cleaned up.
v4.16 : Minor changes, no update necessary.
v4.17 : Added members status to hover information.
v4.18 : Re-wrote status code to take account of custom status definitions.

I just thought I'd mention that everything works except that it puts those messages at the top of the forum which I fixed by putting @ signs in at the appropriate places...

Well, I would like it fixed, but I don't want to spend hours tracking down the problem... Any suggestions? Everything is working perfectly right now.

Hmm, yes, I've looked at that code and wondered why flashchat needs to do that at all, IMO it shouldn't need to mess with your vB Cookie. I just haven't got round to looking at it properly. I think you could just remove that code, but haven't tested it.

I don't understand what is going on with that, but you are the second person to mention it since FC 4.0.12 was released. I don't get it on my system so I can't investigate why it happens. What version of php are you on ?

Oh well, it wasn't a php5 thing then. Anyway, at the end of the day - there is no requirement for that bit of code to be called, it was just a side effect of calling the flashchat common.php - I have altered the code to avoid this now anyway. Plugin v3.05 released.

You have indicated that you wish to integrate FlashChat with vBulletin 3.0.7 NOTE: Requires input of license number in /inc/cmses/vbulletinCMS2.php. Please refer to the full integration instructions located in the TUFaT.com Wiki. There are additional steps to complete after this installer is finished.

Configuration Error!

FlashChat was unable to detect your MySQL login setting from the vBulletin 3.0.7 NOTE: Requires input of license number in /inc/cmses/vbulletinCMS2.php configuration file. You must correct this before FlashChat can finish its installation. Please refer to the integration Instructions in the TUFaT.com Wiki to ensure that the FlashChat files were correctly uploaded to your server.

Possible Reasons for this error may include:

1) FlashChat was uploaded to an incorrect server location.
2) The CMS system that you are using is unsupported by FlashChat.
3) Your server has incompatible settings which may have been undetected in Step 1 of the FlashChat installer. For example, specific security restrictions which are not typical of most PHP/MySQL setups.


Put my license number in, etc!!! bugger
