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.

I want my users just to use this and not be able to manually sign up on forum. If i disable the registration system, will they still be able to create an account on forum through this plugin?

Also, is the referrer field chooseable upon registration?

tbh, I'm not sure if it works with registrations disabled. It should, since it copies almost the whole registration process, but I'm not sure if there aren't some conditionals leftover who could cause problems with that. I didn't think of a possible way of only allowing steam registrations in the development process, so this might be another thing to figure out.
I'll add it to the agenda, but cannot promise it to make in the next version.
You could simply try it out on a test installation and report back which problems you run into.

Additional fields are currently not supported.

I can't seem to get the steam button to show up on my forums.

Link.

Link to steam_login.png

I've also tried to put {vb:raw steam_button} into a vbadvanced module with no success.

The mod accepted my API so no problems there. I also added the images to /images/misc as opposed to images/avenger_blue/misc with no luck.

Is there some setting I've missed somewhere?

Hmm, I'm not sure about vbadvanced, I never used it before.

So maybe the template name is different?

I use - TW7S - Change the look of the Login/Register [Twitter Style]- http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=238152

As a log in for my website. This hack normally works if i include
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

in my header. However if I use it like this

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

It acts like a normal login button... Any ideas on what might be causing this?

Hm, maybe some css is causing this?

Do you have a live example link?

Yeah, but even if I add it in the header, (which it is currently), it does not show.

You'll notice the one in the header will work. However, when you go to use the one in the custom login button it just acts as if its a login button. Also, the facebook connect works witch leaders me to beleave that I have lost my mind

I found out the hard way via steam support that if you have a domain name with the word "Steam" in it, you can't generate an API key. I even contacted steam support asking and they said they wont generate one for me.

Oh, wasn't aware of this too. Maybe it's some kind to prevent scams or phishing. Sorry to hear that.

Ah, now i know what you mean. Yes, that behaviour is correct. Reason for this is the way html handles forms.
The Steam button is a form itself, so you have a loginform within a loginform. The Steam button will fallback to be a part of the vbulletin login form and act as a second submit button.

try the following (not sure if it works tho):

Open the template you put the second login button to (the steam button which doesn't work)
replace the {vb:raw steam_button} with the following code:


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

And report back if it works

Not that did not work my man I'm sorry however I did find a way to make this work.... My community has decided not to use it there and would like only people who already have a forums account to be able to use it.

I have noticed two problems however..

1. It doesn't move people to the "Group" specified. (Not for me @leaste.)
2. There should be a option to add person to group. (Instead of move, making it the main group) Basicly we would like to make it a sub group.

Thank you for the help my man and if you would like to know how I did get it fixed I can pm you what it was I did.

Sure, send me the changes you discovered.

Still don't have much time to work on the next update. I hope that vB will improve the API in future versions, so it won't be necessary anymore to hack your way around the auth system.
