This modification is no longer available or supported.

Flashchat integration with vBulletin 3.7

Note: Flashchat Version 5.0.8 onwards now has the option for vbulletin 3.7 integration.

Note:
Standard Flashchat includes vBulletin integration as part of the Tufat supplied files. However, the standard integration does not include Direct Usergroup Integration or other extra's like the WOL Display & Flashchat on a vBulletin page. This Modification adds those features


Standard vB 3.7 integration features

* Authorised members are automatically logged in.
* Automatic login works even if a member has not ticked "remember me".
* All non authorised members are locked out (this and the above are based on usergroup membership).
* If enabled, Flashchat updates the users session location (displayed in various vBulletin online location displays such as WOL).
* Real ip detection when a proxy server is used (only if the proxy server passes on the details).
* Permanant, Private Rooms are loaded by Admins and Moderators (allows for Staff Rooms).

Extra's added by this modification

* Direct login to a room.
* The WOL will correctly display Flashchat as the location (not 'Unknown Location')
* Flashchat can be displayed embedded inside a 'standard' vBulletin Page (i.e. not full screen).
* Direct Usergroup Integration - a section is added to each usergroup in the ACP Usergroup Manager to set the Flashchat permissions for that group.
* The plugin will try to automatically add a link to Flashchat in your Quick Links or Navbar - this feature can be disabled if you wish.
* The automatic link can have a prefix path defined - useful if you use something like CMPS.
* You can define a usergroup to login as Flashchats "Spy" mode. (Version 3.7.002 onwards)


More notes:

* This integration is for Flashchat versions 4.7.x or 5.0.x (seperate downloads).
* The automatic link feature may fail if you have customised templates (it uses template hooks).
* For Flashchat inside a vBulletin page you need to link to .../misc.php?do=flashchat
* This modification does not add any links to Flashchat Administration in the ACP.
* You can set all members to login direct to particular room via the ACP.
* You can also add a room parameter to the url - i.e. .../misc.php?do=flashchat&room=3
* Spys can login into the chat but are not listed in the room - they cannot chat, just watch.
* 3.7.004 onwards has extra code to cope with VBs CSRF protection, which interferes with profile linking.
* 3.7.006 onwards is for Flashchat 5.0.x - The previous version for Flashchat 4 (3.7.005) will continue to be available for the moment.

The CMS file assumes that you are installing Flashchat in your forum root folder - this is the same folder as your usercp.php file and includes folder. Installation will fail if you do not do this.

Support: Please check the instructions, and make sure you have uploaded any files to the correct location - the vast majority of problems reported are due to an error made in editing or uploading files. If you are still stuck and want me to take a look then feel free to PM me your site address, an admin user, and ftp access details, without these I cannot help you. I will look when I have time.

Flashchat 4 : If you have upgraded from 3.6 to 3.7 make sure you have edited the CMS entry in the Flashchat config.php file.


Finally, I am not Tufat.com or Flashchat Support - if you have questions about Flashchat, their forums are here.


To use the this upgraded integration simply download and unzip the file, then follow the instructions in the text file. Once installed, the Flashchat userlevel options for each usergroup will appear in the ACP usergroup edit screens - editing of the CMS file will no longer be required.



History:

v3.7.001 : First release for vb 3.7.
v3.7.002 : Option for Flashchat spy mode added.
v3.7.003 : Fix for 404 page not found error in certain situations.

I did everything correctly and installed the mod to be able to gain access to the chatrooms admincp through the vbulletin admin cp, Yet whenever i try logging in, it tells me the database doesnt exist

Could not grant admin role for this login and password. Table 'site_forum.flashchat_users' doesn't exist

Any ideas?

There is no access to the chat admin via the vb acp unless you have added a mod to do it.

Sorry if this is a repeat or a dopey question - I read loads of pages but didn't come across the answer and don't want to assume in case I goof something up.

I have FC and your previous version installed and I upgraded to 3.7.1 - all seems to be working just great apart from when we click on the profile link we get a missing security token error. If I run this new one will that be fixed?

Thanks, Paul!

Edit: It's okay, I've figured out that I'd better run this if I want other hacks to work. Thanks anyway.

Hi Paul, I had v3.55 installed on VB 3.6 and all was fine.

I am now on 3.7.1 and flashchat FlashChat v 4.7.12

I have some problems now and wondered if anyone had similar problems or should I just start everything from scratch and reinstall flashchat.

Trying to enter chat from VB as an admin all i get is the chat background.

Using the same computer with a user account I get the chat integration but I get a login box and have to login to the chat instead of automatically because it says incorrect username or password. I can login with the details manually though as a user and all is fine.

I don't really want to start again but is that my best option?

Custom Admin permissions

Hi Paul,

My group has a couple custom usergroups. In the 3.6 integration, there was a box like this that allowed me to set the permissions:

// Usergroup Definitions
$users = '2,10' ; // Usergroups allowed standard access to chat.
$moderators = '5,7' ; // Usergroups allowed access as chat moderators.
$administrators = '6,11' ; // Usergroups allowed access as chat administrators.
$banned = '1,8' ; // Usergroups banned from accessing the chat at any time.
In the newest version, this box is gone, and it appears that the software is supposed to figure it out somehow. Unfortunately, it isn't. The admin group number 11 isn't being picked up as an admin group. The program admits them to the chat room as users, but does not give the admin permissions, and does not allow those users to log into the chat admin panel, either.

Any thoughts on how I can correct this?

Thank you!

Hello again Paul,

Thank you for your quick response.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the mod, but simply do not have Usergroup controls in the ACP for flashchat.

Is there something else I can do?

Thanks!

Then I would guess you have not uploaded the bitfield file to the correct place - vb should pick it up automatically.

Getting a security token error:
VB 3.7
Flashchat 4712
flashchat integration 3.7.005

While in the chat room, click on a members name, go to profile and my members and I are getting this error:

Your submission could not be processed because a security token was missing or mismatched.

If this occurred unexpectedly, please inform the administrator and describe the action you performed before you received this error.

Then you have missed doing something, most likely you are not using the latest cms file.

Ok 2 things:
1) What is the difference between: No Chat Access and Banned From Chat?
2) What happens if more than 1 permission level is selected? (I.E. No Chat Access and Banned From Chat are selected or Administrator Level Access and Spy Mode are selected)

1. The message they receive on the sign in box (and priority, see below).

2. There is a priority order, the highest one will be used, from low to high the order is ;

noaccess > user > customer > moderator > admin > spy > banned

I also noticed that the code for spy access got lost from the CMS file when I updated it for CSRF, I have added that back and updated the zip file.

Quick Links go broke

Got this isntalled yesterday -- Paul you did a great job. The odd thing is, the Quick Links dropdown menu now looks... well, mutilated? I don't have Flashchat's quick link option disabled but the "View user profile" link that was part of Quick Links is now blank as well as the search link in the navigation and there is no FlashChat link displayed.

There are also a ton of n00b questions I would ask but I'd rather get acclimated to the system through trial and error... except for this QUick Links SNAFU. I'd appreciate help on that one. Thanks.
