vBulletin Messenger v1.4.0

===================
Brought To You By
TEAMERZ.NET
http://vbm.teamerz.net/
===========

What It Does:

With VBM your members can login to the messenger with thier membership details , add other members to thier contact list (for VB 3.7 contacts are the friends in the friend list) , communicate with each other with smilies , fonts , colors ... , also they will be notified about newest forum posts and threads and view "last 10 posts" in the forum in an easy and fast way with a "Read More" button that will open the thread/post when clicked .
VBM has a public chat room , that can be accessed by all members that use the messenger .
Your members will know about the newest posts in the forum and will open the new post in a new browser window once they click the notification , which means a more active forum members and a better moderation .

Features:

- VBM is easy to install and manage .
- VBM Means less resources required from your website server (MySQL Queries > CPU , Bandwidth) .
- VBM Means a more living forum , and a better moderation .

- It is easy to install and manage your VBulletin Messenger system .
- Fully Supported
- VBM takes less queries from DATABASE and takes less resources/bandwidth because it dosen't have to load the pictures/CSS/backgrounds or any other files from your server , it only loads a small list of online/offline contacts with information about last 10 posts and threads in the forum , which takes about 10-15 queries and max of 5kb-15kb transfere which is less a 1000-10000 times from only opening the forum home page .

Installation:

1 - Download the Server Side Script and Open the file "include.php" and edit the database details to match these of your forum config.php entries

2 - Upload all the PHP files in the "vbmsngr" directory in the root directory of your website "/public_html/" (You may need to create the "/public_html/vbmsngr" folder) .

3 - Tell your members and/or moderators about The Messenger Installation Pack which is the messenger desktop software
Every one who installs this software and have a membership in your forum can chat to each other .

To login to the messenger use your user name then the "@" sign then your forum URL . example : me@myforum.com , enter your password and you're in !!!
You can make a subdomain and add the Server Side Script in it , but then no one can login to the messenger unless they know the subdomain address .

Notes:
- Messenger accepts only usernames and passwords in english chars! ( other languages support coming soon! )
- There will not be any options of editing the [Sitename] Messenger / theme / skin / removing the @domain.com login method unless in custom versions , please refer to the website .

And capitalization of MySQL queries does not affect if you use a new MySQL service running on the server with apachi and php4 or higher
I would like to find out what that costs for these options are, and I'll definitely think about it

That's what I thought about the queries as well, but for some reason, it wouldn't create the tables in my database until I did that, and I'm on Apache 2.2.8 with MySQL 5 so I don't know why that fixed it, maybe just a quirk

Works for me except there are a couple of issues:

1. No avatar is showing up next to my username, there is just a white box.
2. In the 'My Status' dropdown, <Cutom Message> should actually say <Custom Message> (is CuStom, not Cutom.

Also, a quick suggestion which would make things look a bit tidier...

In the 'Forum' section where it lists the last 10 posts, the current format looks a bit untidy. Instead of showing the format like this:

[THREAD TITLE] by [USERNAME]: Thread text is here etc...

It might look much nicer in the following format:

Thread Title
by Username (Post Time)

The text of the thread is not needed here as it is repeated underneath anyway and this is much more readable.

Also, I think that it needs to differentiate between when people start a new thread and when they reply to a thread. At the moment, it simply says:

"Username has started a thread..." regardless of whether it is a new thread or a reply to an existing thread.

Anyway, this app is damned good so far and is definitely something I will be able to utilise once things are a bit further down the line.

Like others, I would like to see an option where I could upload a logo (even if it has to conform to specific dimensions) and I would also like to be able to change the name from 'VBulletin Messenger' to [SITENAME] Messenger.

Anyway, all in all, this is a brilliant mod and shows a hell of a lot of potential!

Same here. My forums are installed in mysite.com/forum, not in the root folder...
The messenger can login, but it cannot load any info from the forums. When I click "Read More" or "Go to Forum", it takes me to the root. Is there a way we can get this to work? It would be really cool to have this on our forums.

How about you can offer an option to customize installer, phrases and colours of the application?

I made the avatar change, as per Veccys recommendation and this fixed the problem, however I've just tried chatting with other forum members and this is not working at all.

All the other parts - eg new thread notifications, new friend additions are fine, but the chat thing certainly needs to work.

Also, on the Forum section, would it be possible to remove anything between the tags and just display the reply instead?
