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 v3.7.x.


What Does This Hack Do?

It is a update of my v3.6.x hack available here, with a couple of small changes.

This hack allows you to integrate the FlashChat Admin Panel into your vBulletin Admin Control Panel, so all administration is done in one place (you can even optionally remove FlashChat's own nav links - see the screenshots for comparison).

Now comes with Administrator Permissions, so you can limit which administrators you want to admin Flashchat via the AdminCP.

Note: Version 3.7.006 of this hack and above are for FlashChat 5.0.x onwards only, and will not work with FlashChat 4.7.x. Version 3.7.005 of this hack will continue to be available for Flashchat 4 (but I will not be coding any further releases for FlashChat 4 versions).


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 or v5.x.x
  2. Paul M's Flashchat: Integration for vB 3.7 v3.7.005 (Flashchat v4.7.x only) or v3.7.009 (Flashchat v5.x.x only)
  3. Then install the correct version of this hack (see versions below)


Installation Instructions

Download either of the below files, depending on your installed FlashChat version:
  • ms_fc_admincp_fc5_v3.7.006.zip for Flashchat v5.x.x only
  • ms_fc_admincp_fc4_v3.7.005.zip for Flashchat v4.7.x only
The installation instructions are included in attached zip files.

Uninstall Instructions
  1. Delete cpnav_flashchat.xml from your <forum root>/includes/xml directory.
  2. Delete bitfield_fc_admincp.xml from your <forum root>/includes/xml directory.
  3. If uploaded: Delete the top.tpl file from your <forum root>/chat-folder-name-here/templates/admin directory. Re-instate the original version of top.tpl.
  4. Uninstall the product in vB using the AdminCP Product Manager.

You are right, I included the incorrect dependency. I have fixed and re-uploaded the zip.

This one should give you no problems. Thanks for pointing it out

Ok, that problem fixed. Next I set a password for a chat room. Enter the room it asks for the password. Just click enter, it says invalid. Click ok and it lets you enter.

Also in the ACP under messages, click on clear filter and none of the messages get cleared.

1. The password thing is a not a problem with the integration, this hack does not actually do anything with the actual Flashchat Admin Panel apart from display it in vBulletin's ACP. You will need to ask on the official Flashchat forums about this - http://forum.tufat.com/forumdisplay.php?f=5

2. It is a filter (ie if you want to show all the messages by Hostboard), it does not delete any of the messages, it just remove the filter that you have applied to the messages log.

I believe I installed everything correctly but when I actually go into the admin panel of the flash chat, it simply says:

If you want me to take a look then feel free to PM me your site address, an admin user, and ftp access details, without these I cannot help you. I will look when I have time.

FlashChat Admin Panel Path problem

I've tried to uninstall and reinstall and keep getting the same error: page not found

When I mouse over the links within the FlashChat admin Panel, I see it as:

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

The above is the actual link. I've checked my VB options and cannot find a path problem. I'm thinking this is a simple path problem somewhere along the line.

Aside from the admin panel, everything else works splendid. The chat shows up and works and the links placed on either the navigation bar or the quicklinks leads directly to the chat. I have Vbadvanced installed but not yet implemented all the way.

Thank you in advance for any assistance with this.

Information:
- Vbulletin 3.7.0 Beta 5
- Vbseo 3.1.0
- VBadvanced 3.0.0 Gold - Not implemented

Yeah, and I pmed and haven't heard anything. If anyone else can offer any suggestions here, it would help out in the future when others run across the same issue.

I can access the admin in flashchat directly but it says something about integrated with cms. Currently the chat on my forum is off and excited to get it going. We're going to have scheduled chats. Forum URL: PhilosophyForum.com. Recently re-done.

Sorry about that, been busy signing up to university, so have not had time to look at this. But looking at what you PM'ed me, I can see that you did not provide an admin user account and ftp access details, which is what I would have need to login and help you.

A url to the forum is not going to help me help you, as when you install this you have to be an admin, and to be honest I am not going to go through the registration process and still not be able to help you out as I need admin permissions.

But before that, I have one question, have you installed Paul M's Flashchat: Integration for vB 3.7? As the the link you posted when hovering your mouse point would indicate that you do not (or have and it is not installed properly):


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

It is looking for an option that would have been added when you installed Paul M's hack, there is a list of hacks that need to be installed listed in the first post of this thread that have to be installed before this will work.

If all hacks needed are installed and working, and this hack still does not work and you want me to log in and sort it out for you then I require you PM me what I original asked for, which is, an admin user account (with appropriate permissions) and ftp access details, you can revoke these after I have helped you out.
