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.

I have a Problem. The Steam button just shows up after a user has loged in. They cant login via steam. In the settings for Logfile Path I get an error message now "Error:
You did not enter a valid value for this setting."
Since now I have tryed every possible way to lead it to the File that keeps the record. but I still get the error message.

So what I am doing wrong here?
The file is on 777, and it is there.

That already looks wrong from here. Are you familiar with the directory system on linux? I suggest to look up some basic tutorials on unix filesystems and the difference between relative and absolute paths.

To spare you the trouble: Go into your vb admincp > Maintenance > Show PHP-Info
Look for the entry "SCRIPT_FILENAME"
My for example says "/var/www/vhosts/kmxxxxx.keymachine.de/mydomainname.de/forum/admincp/index.php"
which means the base path to my forum would be "/var/www/vhosts/kmxxxxx.keymachine.de/mydomainname.de/forum/" and if the cache directory was located in the forum root, the necessary path for the cache path would be: "/var/www/vhosts/kmxxxxx.keymachine.de/mydomainname.de/forum/steamlogins" (no trailing slash)

We are getting a
Error 102 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED): The server refused the connection.
Error when trying to link or register accounts. Pretty much we get to the part where we log into steam then it returns a blank page. I got the error when using Chrome. Any thoughts on what is happening?

I fixed the error, but there is still no way to use steam as login.
1. I can register via steam. and when i connect my selfmade account with steam it does say signed in with steam. But there is no connect via steam option.
So either there is no log in feature like the fb-connect button. Or it just wont work.

Please help me out.

Thank you.

This Steam Connect isn't a website login like the Facebook one it's only a way to connect your Steam to your profile for future use and for use with Disasterpiece's mini Steam profile! If your not seeing the icon to connect then read back a bit there is information... And you can always manually add the button...

Disasterpiece is our only voice for the Steam Connect on VBulletin... And a few others created addons for it but so far its been really slow getting anything else going...

I am sure once Vbulletin 5 is released many others will flock back from xenforo and Vbulletin.org will get a lot busier! At least I am hoping... When I say busy I mean for stuff like this...

Nice, installed (almost) fine, now logged in and connected to Steam, however, I can't seem to be able to properly add the Steam icon in postbit.

I've been through the steps over and over again, the plugin 'Add Steam icon to postbit' is active and I've tried several places in the postbit area, on the default template as well as another I've installed, no joy.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Template postbit:

I have gotten this to work with vB 4.2.0, except for the small icon in the postbit area.
The sign in/connect with Steam button appears at the top if you make the style adjustments as described, with the small Steam activity banner appearing on posts.

The only thing I still haven't gotten to work is the small icon, like the IM-icons, but the rest will work .

The postbit icon sould work, I really can't imagine anything that could come with the new version which could break this plugin. Are you sure you uploaded the image to the right directory and all?

I believe so; the steam_icon.gif is in /images/misc/, I've added the {vb:raw post.steamicon} to the imlinks class as well, in all styles available on the forums.

I've left it in front of the rest, but no matter where I put it on that line, the button doesn't show up.
It's not a big deal, since the main thing, the connecting with Steam, works; the sign-in button appears in the header and the Steam Mini Profile from the add-on shows .

So, if one way we can make the icon appear, great, if not, not a big deal .

Are there specific files/bits I could share for inspection which could be the problem perhaps?
