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.

NOTE: Who is chatting Add-On (for Flashchat) for v3.6.x is available here.


vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack has be tested with v3.5.8. This has not been tested with earlier versions, but should work.


What Does This Hack Do?

This is an add-on/enhancement to Paul M's FlashChat - Who is in the chat v 4.18, so this hack does not work without Paul M's hack installed first.

This does not change the functionality of Paul M's hack, this is just an enhancement to your installed version of FlashChat - Who is in the chat.

The members on my forum requested that the Who is in the chat 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 he has kindly given me permission to use the code in my hack. I have also used part of the description off his hack as well.

Thanks 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, Who is Online and on Search pages.
  2. The list view is collapsable, 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 chatting" message is displayed.


Installation Instructions

Follow the attached instructions.

Upgrade instructions are included with the attached instructions.

I love the idea of this, but I keep getting this error:

Warning: Unknown(./chat/inc/langs/.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /forumdisplay.php(105) : eval()'d code on line 8

Fatal error: (null)(): Failed opening required './chat/inc/langs/.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/*****/public_html/forum/forumdisplay.php(105) : eval()'d code on line 8

I carefully followed the instructions and it shows up fine on the forum home page but when I click on any forum, I get the error message above.

Any ideas on why this would be happening?

Thanks

Clancy

Have you got Flashchat installed, with Paul M's Integration Hack? Have you got Paul M's original Who is in the chat mod installed first, before installing mine?

My modification depends on all of those factors and not having those installed and working first will prevent this one from working at all.

PM me a temp admin account for your forum and I will have a look, if that is OK.

EDIT: Disregard the above request.

In the ACP did you put the correct path to your flashchat folder to /forum/chat in Who is in Flashchat - Location of FlashChat in the Forums Home Page Options section of vBulletin Options?

And also the correct language code (just underneath the option above) of en?

I have the path to my flashchat folder set to chat - I tried it as /forum/chat but it still returns an error.

I don't see the correct language code option. I just checked and noticed that PaulM has released an update to the Who is in flashchat" I'll try upgrading to that version and see if it works.

Thanks for your help so far.

Clancy

Yes, that is probably the reason, my code is based on v 4.18 of Paul M's Mod, will alter the first post to reflect this.

Yep, you need v4.18 of my hack for this to work, otherwise you will get the error above.

where do you get FlashChat itself? I am currently using something else and this seems much better, but I have searched around and found nothing...
