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.

The thing is I prefer everyone who steam links, both new and existing members to be in a primary steam group. The reason for this is that with some plugins I'm trying to set or prevent specific access to the steam linked usergroup only.

For example, I'm using the current plugin:
- Threads Auto Close advanced (by Usergroup)

I only want it to affect the registered usergroup, but it also affects the steam linked users seeing they exist in the registered usergroup as well of which I don't want.

I really hope it can somehow be included in a future update.

Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Though I do believe I found the code.

I really do appreciate your help on the matter and everything you've helped me with so far. ^_^

---

I just really personally hope that the email verification issue can be solved/fixed. Whenever someone uses steam registration (without having a forum account) he'll be moved to the email verification group and in the steam linked usergroup if you set a secondary group. He / she can still post because of the "steam linked" usergroup access, regardless of him being in the email verification group.

And when you set the steam linked group as primary, with email verification. He'll be moved to the registration group once he email verified. So the whole email verification with the steam log is a bit messed up at the moment

um maybe this is what your talking about in the thread starter for this plugin

but for whatever reason it just seems to quit working it goes though the process then
when it gets back to my site and shows the steam info you check the agree box and click complete registration it isnt registering any more gives the login box and says the permissions thing.

*shrugs*, I really hope the users awaiting email confirmation posting issues can be solved. I have over 800 people who can post now while being the the awaiting group & are steam linked (secondary group) at the same time.

Feature request: Possibly to search for CustomURL, ID32 and ID64 through the adminCP?

Any idea what the "|0|0" at the end of all of the steam community ids is for? This is stored in the database this way and we're trying to use {vb:raw user.steam_link} but this is causing us problems. We're trying to add Steam Buttons in to the site leaders / show groups template.

The |0|0 are flags if the user set up a password or an email. It's ugly and it will be changed in the next update, for now you can use the built-in functions in the functions_steamconnect.php or check out some of the plugins, there you can see how you can make the steamid available in the templatevars.

If you need help with a more concrete matter, feel free to post or send a PM


@Updates: Not until beginning of next year.

Work fantastics. Thanks for the mod. Some suggestions if you would like to add them

1. AdminCp External Connections like the facebook one
2. In the header where the message welcome, username appears if you could embed the steam avatar with a small steam symbol like the facebook one.
3. In UserCp instead of steam connect -> steam account link the linkng process to show in the edit connections page
4. SteamID to appear in postbit under avatar in the user info area
5. Possibility to search in admincp by Steam ID 64


Also in admincp under Steam Connect Settings some phrases are strange
- Communityvisibilitystate
- Personaname
- Profileurl
- Avatarmedium
- Avatarfull

Sounds like an issue regarding cookies.

With the latest version, the issue of having to login each time because the cookies weren'd flagged as permanent should have been solved and so far it seems to work.

Clearing all cookies for your domain should be enough. Or maybe there are some settings limiting cookies alltogether?

If the problem persists, try to gather some data which browser, operating system and security measurements those people are using who encounter the problem.

I'm new to Steam but, I have signed up and have added games, Granted I just downloaded my first game and it was one of the free games.

When I click the link in the admincp to get a key, it keeps telling me access denied until you have games in your account.

Is it limited to paid games, or am I just not giving it enough time.

I figured it out, downloading free games is not enough, I had to buy one through Steam. Thanks
