vBulletin Chat Demo: http://vbulletin.123flashchat.com/

vBulletin Integration Introduction
Basically the module can integrate the chat and vBulletin seamlessly.

So what the module can add to vBulletin? It adds a chat button which links to a fabulous chat room, with multiple skins and multilingual support, written in flash or HTML/Ajax, and a visual setting panel, etc. Recent changes: the backend management is enhanced.

1. Chat Button
Firstly a chat button will be added to the top menu of vBulletin as the chat room entrance.


2. Auto-login

After installing the module, the vBulletin user database will be automatically immigrated to the chat room and auto-login will be enabled.

Therefore vBulletin users may click the "Chat"button or directly choose a chat room to enter, without being asked to login again.

3. Custom Settings in vBulletin ACP

Enter vBulletin ACP and you will find "123FLASHCHAT" tab in the left menu, click it to enter the setting panel of the module:


3.1 Server Mode and Integration URL

Here you may define the chat server mode (self hosted, TOPCMM paid hosting or TOPCMM free hosting), and get integration URL (if the first two server modes mentioned above).

3.2 Chat Status
The following data of the chat room can display on vBulletin index page to attract more users to join chatting.

Total rooms, total connections, online users
Chat room list
Online user list
The 3 types of data can be individually disabled to display if you need.


3.3 Various chat clients and different open modes

Three chat clients: flash client (standard, with full features), HTML/Ajax chat client (simple and neat) and avatar chat client (with walking cartoon figures).

Two open modes: embedded or popup.

3.4 Change size, language and skin
You can change chat window size, language and a proper skin to match your vBulletin.

Nine skins options are available:



4. Chat Admin Panel
Except the vBulletin ACP, the chat admin panel is also imported here for your convenience. Please be aware that the admin account here might be different to that of the vBulletin ACP.

Server Modes of 123 Flash Chat
1) Free Trial Edition of 123 Flash Chat

Advantages: It's free but has full functions, even the optional modules including audio and video chat.

Limit: Only 10 concurrent users may use the room and you need to host it by yourself, which means a dedicated server with SSH access is required.

2) Commercial Server Software or Hosting Service
Advantages: No advertisements, full support service, multiple client choices, etc.

3) Free Hosting of 123 Flash Chat
Advantages: It's hosted by TOPCMM 123 Flash Chat team, free of charge, no limit to the concurrent user number and provides the basic chat functions.

Limit: Some management functions are missing.

Although the chat system is nice, this plug-in is not. It is not very well documented and support is vague. I've paid for a month of service with 123Flashchat, but I think that will be my last... This plug-in only works on the forumhome page, doesn't have any username markup or linked profiles, editing of the index.php file is required, and when you try to get help, they just tell you to give them your SSH, AdminCP, and FTP info so they can do it, which most administrators wouldn't even consider.

There is poor English & lack of a space after commas all throughout the plug-in and the chat system, and add-on modules are way over priced. The directions show you screenshots of the software but offer nothing in terms of actual instructions or reference to how things should actually be executed.

Do your research before you take this step. Hopefully, an experienced coder will come along and make a much better vB plug-in to replace this one.

Sorry for the rant...

I am in the process of messing with this at the moment. It's pretty easy to change some aspects of the text and some object colors, but to change the skin colors (SWF files) isn't so easy.

Again, I wouldn't waste my time here. Another thing that is hidden is that you have to PAY them $100 per hour if you want to change YOUR smilies or avatars. So for 24 avatars, it would cost $200!!

Their support still sucks, I've been trying to pry out of them how to enable iPhone and Android users to access the chat system, and all they keep doing is sending me to THEIR iPhone chat page. I want to it on MY OWN server, not theirs. They let you edit your own skins, why not allow you to have your own smilies and avatars?

There are way too many hidden surprises, read EVERY PAGE before you buy this software. Thankfully, I only paid $19 for one month and I can walk away.

Of course, you can custom your chat room skin

1. We offer 9 optional chat skin for you. You can select one as follow:
login Admin Panel --> Basic Settings --> Skin Settings.

2. If you don't like any one of these options,You can design your own skin, without the flash source code, please refer to:
http://www.123flashchat.com/colormap.htm
http://www.123flashchat.com/howtoskin.html
If you need original source code for skin files( please bare in mind we only offer it to 123 Flash Chat license buyer.) please write to support@123flashchat.com to request it.

3.There are some 123 Flash Chat Skin showcase for you.

Dear Jman,

You are right. At the moment, it is a little complex to change the skin colors. We are trying to improve this. Thank you.

Dear sir,

Please send a ticket to support@123flashchat.com? And you could also contact the sales you bought our chat from. They may solve your problems soon.

If you had sent ticket, please tell me your ticket ID, we have a process for quality assurance of our CS.

For the iPhone Chat Client Code, please open your admin panel -> Code Generator -> choose Html Chat, then Click Next to configure. It will give you the code instantly. Hope that can help you in time.
