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.

Did you follow Step 3, and change all 6 instances before uploading the files via your FTP client?

Change every instance of <chat-folder-name-here> (there are 6 instances) to the name of the directory under the forum root directory that you installed Flashchat into.

So, if you installed Flashchat into <forum-root>/chat, then change <chat-folder-name-here> to chat, if you installed into <forum-root>/fc then it would change to fc.

Save the file.

It works on my testbed fine, so am not sure what is up.

To help you further I will need to take a look at your installation.

So, if want me to take a look then feel free to PM me your site address, an temp admin user (with the appropriate permissions) and an ftp account, without these I cannot 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 always remove the temp admin and ftp accounts after I have helped you out.

I received your PM with you details.

You had not done step 3 correctly.

It is all fixed up, sent you an PM.

Enjoy

Hey, I'm having a bit of a problem.

I have FlashChat 4.8.3 installed and I tried to install this. I got a slight error. There's no "FlashChat Admin" link in the AdminCP. Is this because of the FlashChat version?

Edit:

I also have vBulletin Blog installed. Might that AdminCP navbit be getting in the way?

Having vBulletin Blog installed will not interfere with the Flashchat AdminCP links appearing.

Have you given yourself Administrator Permissions to view the Flashchat AdminCP links?

Of course. However, I'm still not able to see anything. The plugins are all active as well.

Edit:

Also, uninstalling and reinstalling did not change anything.

Got your PM, all sorted.

You had not uploaded cpnav_flashchat.xml.

Once you are happy it is working, you can remove the temp account you PM'ed me.

Enjoy
