Hack Support

This hack is now discontinued - this means that while it will remain available for download and use, there will be no further updates, nor will support be provided as the thread is no longer monitored.

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


vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can only be used with vBulletin v3.6.x.


What Does This Hack Do?

This is an add-on/enhancement to Paul M's Who is chatting (for Flashchat) v 4.46.
This is a partial port of my v3.5.x hack with extras.

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. FlashChat v4.7.x (v5.x.x has not been tested with this hack)
  2. Paul M's Flashchat Integration for vB 3.6 v3.56
  3. Paul M's Who is chatting (for Flashchat) v4.46
  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 Who is chatting (for Flashchat), it will even display both boxes on the forum homepage if you do not turn off Paul M's version.

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.

Code that is used in this hack is mainly Paul M's and once again he has kindly given me permission to use the code in my Who is chatting add-on hacks. I have also used part of the description from his hack as well.

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


What It Does
  1. It displays the chat list under the navbar on Forum Home, Forum Display, Show Thread and Who is Online pages.
  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 is an AdminCP option (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.

Note: There is no upgrade path from my v3.5.x version, you have to uninstall that one first before installing this one.


Installation Instructions
  1. Unzip the downloaded file and upload file in the Upload/includes folder to the <forum root>/includes folder.
  2. Import the XML into vB using the AdminCP Product Manager. If upgrading from an earlier version, then set Allow Overwrite to Yes.
  3. In vBulletin Options > Who Is Using Flashchat, change Who is in Flashchat - Enable to No so there are not 2 "Members currently using Flashchat" boxes displayed on the forum homepage display.
  4. In vBulletin Options > Who Is Using Flashchat (Add-On). Please change settings here to turn the hack on, select what groups can see this, select which locations you wish this hack to be displayed, if you want to turn the auto insert option off and make the template changes manually (use the contents of the Display_Chatters_Addon template to do so).

No, it can not, as mine is based on and dependent on Paul M's hack.

Here is a quote from the FlashChat/vBulletin integration guru himself:

To do the template edits myself is there a $templatename or do I have to add the whole block code to the page?

If you look at the plugins, you will see that there is php code that calls the Display_Chatters_Addon template. Now if you are manually editing yourself you will have to make sure you have the code attached to the correct hook and then paste the contents of the Display_Chatters_Addon template where you want it to appear in the appropriate template. If you go down that route, you will have to work it out for yourself, as I can not work it out for you.

How can I change the icon to the left of "who is in flashchat" at the bottom of main page?

I created a different icon from the whos_online.gif and named it whos_chatting.gif

I found the section in the "Display Chatters" template which read:


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

and changed the graphic text to whos_chatting.gif

but the old graphic remained in place

Any ideas?

You need to change it in the template Display_Chatters_Addon, the template you changed is part of the original Who is chatting (for FlashChat) hack by Paul M, and as most people would have turned off, when turning mine on, means that template is not used at all.

Also please click Mark as Installed.

I went into "Search Templates" did a search for chatters and only 2 templates showed up

Display_Chatters

and

Display_Chatters_Users

The Display Chatters template is the original one I edited and it did not change anything and the Display_Chatters_Users does not have the graphic in it.

If you do not have the Display_Chatters_Addon template, then you do not have this hack installed, you will need to ask over at Paul M's hack instead as it is his hack you are having the problem with, this is a add-on to that hack and I only support this one and he supports his.
