Flashchat 5: Who is chatting (Add On)
Mod Version: 3.8.005, by Mosh (Coder) Mosh is offline
Developer Last Online: Jun 2013 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (8 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 109
Released: 26 Oct 2008 Last Update: 20 Feb 2009 Downloads: 803
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Re-usable Code Translations  

Please click Mark as Installed if you are using this hack.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This hack has now been discontinued - this means that while it will remain available for download and use, there will be no further updates as this thread is no longer monitored. I am also not interested in doing paid work requests to update this hack at all.


IMPORTANT NOTICE 2: This hack only works with FlashChat 5 and later versions, and will not work with FlashChat 4.7.x.
There is version of this hack that will work with FlashChat 4.7.12, and can be downloaded here.



What Does This Hack Do?

This is an add-on/enhancement to Paul M's Flashchat: Who is chatting hack.
This is the v3.8 port of my v3.7.x hack with extra 10 extra display locations, and enabling display locations per usergroup via usergroup permissions (no longer centrally, so allowing extra flexability).


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. Tufat's FlashChat v5.x.x
  2. Paul M's Flashchat 5 Integration for vB 3.8 v3.8.002
  3. Paul M's Members who are chatting in Flashchat 5 v3.8.002
  4. Then install this hack.

This does not change the functionality of Paul M's hack, this is just an enhancement to your installed version of Flashchat: Who is chatting.

The members on my forum requested that the Members currently using Flashchat box be moved to the top of the forums as it was a long way to scroll down to see who was chatting, at the top members could see who was chatting.

As members had to enter the chat or visit the forum homepage again to see who was chatting, I fixed it so that my members could also see who was chatting as they browsed the various forums and threads as well as on the who is online pages.

Paul M's has kindly given me permission to use some of his code in my Who is chatting add-on hacks.

Thank you Paul, for all your work on the Flashchat integration, it makes all our lives easier


What You Get
  1. It displays the chat list under the navbar in the following locations:
    • Forum Home
    • Forum Display
    • Show Thread
    • Who is Online
    • Members Profile pages
    • Search pages
    • Tag Search
    • Social Groups
    • Calendars
    • FAQ
    • Albums
    • User Profile
    • UserCP
    • Private Messages
    • Subscriptions
    • Members List
  2. The list view is collapsible, so you see just the number.
  3. Users who should display as coloured or bold etc are displayed correctly (based on the display usergroup)
  4. If you 'hover' over a username it will show the room they are chatting in and their status (away etc).
  5. If the chat is empty, a simple "No one is currently using the chat." message is displayed.
  6. Display the Most Ever chatters if enabled.
  7. The ability to turn it on/off is in the AdminCP Options (independent of Paul M's hack).
  8. The ability to select which locations this hack is displayed (independent of Paul M's hack).
  9. The ability to allow only certain usergroups to view the list (again, independent of Paul M's hack).
Note: This hack cannot display any bots in the chat, due to the strange way that FlashChat stores this information.

Thank you for this mod, I know our users will appreciate it.

I do have one problem. The description of the mod indicates "If the chat is empty, a simple "No one is currently using the chat." message is displayed."

On the forum home page it displays correctly:



On the other pages, such as the thread display page, it looks like this:



What can I do to fix this?

This is a classic sign that you have not done all 3 edits in Step 3 of the installation instructions ..... these edits need to be done to show the stats on other pages apart from the forumhome, otherwise they will be blank outside of the forumhome page.

Thank you for your prompt response.

I did complete each of the edits on Members in Flashchat 5 (2). Perhaps I have done something wrong... If you don't mind I will post the Members in Flashchat 5 (2) that I am using.

Try this instead, as I know it works:

I tried using the code you provided and the display is still incorrect.

I am also using vbadvanced and vbseo on this forum, could one of those cause this problem?

Yes, it is more than likely. People have used this with vBSEO without issue (so is probably not the culprit, but it is possible), so I would suspect that vBAdvanced is the probable case of the issue.

You may need to globalise some variables due to the fact that you have vBA installed, so check out my profile and look at the flashchat hacks that I wrote for vBA (but no longer support them) and look at the installation steps that mention Portal Output Global Variables, entering the three variables is your most likely way of getting this to work.

However, the above is only a suggestion, as I will not provide support to get this to work with vBA (or vBSEO), so if it works, then it is all good, if not, then there is nothing I can do to help further.

The code I posted is just the edits in Step 3 done correctly, there are no differences from the installation instructions.

By the way, if you are using this hack, then please click Mark as Installed.

Hi Mosh, I just paid the $5 to find that the intergration mods aren't compatible with 3.8.0? Or am I missing something?

I see you have posted in Paul M's support thread, wait for an answer there, as I have nothing to do with the integration, and it clearly states in the first post:

NOTE: I am only providing support for this hack only, and not any of the other hacks that need installing and working 100% before installing this one, if they are not working 100% then ask in the relevant thread for help, and not this one.

I have answered the question in Paul M's support thread, as it is bound to be asked a few times.

Do note though, that the post above this one still applies.

Thanks Mosh. Sorry, I should have read the original mod post before.
