Hack Support

This hack is now discontinued - this means that while it will remain available for download and use, there will be no further updates, nor will support be provided as the thread is no longer monitored.

Please click Mark as Installed if you are using this hack.


vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can only be used with vBulletin v3.7.x.


What Does This Hack Do?

It is a update of my v3.6.x hack available here, with a couple of small changes.

This hack allows you to integrate the FlashChat Admin Panel into your vBulletin Admin Control Panel, so all administration is done in one place (you can even optionally remove FlashChat's own nav links - see the screenshots for comparison).

Now comes with Administrator Permissions, so you can limit which administrators you want to admin Flashchat via the AdminCP.

Note: Version 3.7.006 of this hack and above are for FlashChat 5.0.x onwards only, and will not work with FlashChat 4.7.x. Version 3.7.005 of this hack will continue to be available for Flashchat 4 (but I will not be coding any further releases for FlashChat 4 versions).


What hacks need installing before installing this hack?
These hacks need to be installed in this order and working correctly, for this hack to work.
  1. FlashChat v4.7.x or v5.x.x
  2. Paul M's Flashchat: Integration for vB 3.7 v3.7.005 (Flashchat v4.7.x only) or v3.7.009 (Flashchat v5.x.x only)
  3. Then install the correct version of this hack (see versions below)


Installation Instructions

Download either of the below files, depending on your installed FlashChat version:
  • ms_fc_admincp_fc5_v3.7.006.zip for Flashchat v5.x.x only
  • ms_fc_admincp_fc4_v3.7.005.zip for Flashchat v4.7.x only
The installation instructions are included in attached zip files.

Uninstall Instructions
  1. Delete cpnav_flashchat.xml from your <forum root>/includes/xml directory.
  2. Delete bitfield_fc_admincp.xml from your <forum root>/includes/xml directory.
  3. If uploaded: Delete the top.tpl file from your <forum root>/chat-folder-name-here/templates/admin directory. Re-instate the original version of top.tpl.
  4. Uninstall the product in vB using the AdminCP Product Manager.

Thanks for the fix!
No need for the editing of the config.php file, if you only want 1 super admin, then leave it as it is. All you need to do is install the latest version of this hack and it will fix the issue

Not working for me.

I followed the instructions and i have the '{$vbphrase[flashchat_path]}' issue, and the

'Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ';' in .../admincp/index.php(407) : eval()'d code on line 3'

in my admincp index.

I upgraded my Flashchat Integration, I uninstalled the previous FlashChat Admin and i installed the new one. Some help! Thanks

I can not help you unless I look at your installation, as over 100 sites are using the same code without an issue and that should not cause a problem.

If you want me to take a look then feel free to PM me your site address, a temp admin user (with admin permissions - Can Administer Settings for editing options, Can Administer Language Settings for editing phrases and Can Administer Plugins for editing products and plugins), and ftp access details, without these I can not help you. I will look when I have time, and even if I have a look, I can not guarantee that I will be able to fix it, if your site is not in English (I only read/write in English), so it is up to you what you want to do. You can revoke these after I have helped you out.

Hello: well, tonight I was reading your reply (thank you for do that!!) and my eyes was focused on the phrase: 'if your site is not in English (I only read/write in English)'.

On the php code you have:
"foreach ($navigation['19']['FlashChat Admin Panel']['options']['0'] AS $"

My forum isn't an english forum and I take care to translate every phrase, but the phrases of this product had a strange status (I didnīt found them on Control Panel Global) and all of them were in spanish (they weren't traslated, the spanish text was on the default text).
So, I didn't have that "FlashChat Admin Panel" in my phrases.

The solution: I deleted the phrases manually (from phpMyAdmin) and installed the product.

Now it works fine. Again, thanks for your time!

Cool that it is working

If you need to translate to your phases, then you will need to alter these phrases under Control Panel Global:


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

If you want to post a translated version here, then feel free to attach to a post in this thread and I will reference it in the 1st post

It is possible.

So, I will look into it, but I will give no ETA for a release though.

I now have a working version that uses Administrator Permissions, but there will need to be six edits of one of the files before it is uploaded (it can not be helped as adding permissions generated another issue with the rendering of the menu that I could not overcome).

I will be releasing the new version at the end of the week, as I have an assignment for University that needs to be handed in tomorrow, so am kind of busy atm.

Absolutely no idea, as this is the first time I have ever heard of this error message.

At the moment, this hack does not have admin permissions, so do not have a clue.

BTW, what Usergroup is usergroup id 33 assigned to? Admins, Super Mods, Mods, Members?
