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 or anything to do with the Flashchat product - if you have questions about Flashchat in general, their forums are here.


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.

Pfft..! Talk about nice!

Ace work Paul - followed you over from the flashchat forum.
Works a treat.

Begrudgingly uninstalled. As Flashchat now gone, no need for this.
Shame - it was perfect and flawless while I had it.
While I appreciate the Flashchat exploit got plugged quickly enough (for most), I'm just not comfy having Flashchat on my server/forum any longer.

Thanks Paul.

What is the phrase for the number of people chatting? I want to place it on top and where do I edit the template? Could not find it honestly.

There are a number of phrases (look in the XML file), I'm not really sure which one you mean.
