Flashchat 5: Who is chatting (vBadvanced Add On)

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (1 vote - 5.00 average) Installs: 29
Released: 14 Jan 2009 Last Update: 20 Feb 2009 Downloads: 184
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Additional Files Re-usable Code Translations  

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

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This hack has now been discontinued - this means that while it will remain available for download and use, there will be no further updates as this thread is no longer monitored. I am also not interested in doing paid work requests to update this hack at all.


IMPORTANT NOTICE 2: This hack only works with FlashChat 5 and later versions, and will not work with FlashChat 4.7.x.
There is version of this hack that will work with FlashChat 4.7.12, and can be downloaded here.



What Does This Hack Do?

This is an add-on/enhancement to my Flashchat: Who is chatting (Add On) hack for vBadvanced.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: I will NOT be producing a vBadvanced module version of this hack. This is due to the fact that all of my other Flashchat 5: Who is chatting add-on hacks are displayed under the navbar, so, I want all of the display locations to look consistent, and I only want to support one vBadvanced version, and this is it. So, please do not ask.


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. vBadvanced v3.1.0
  2. Tufat's FlashChat v5.x.x
  3. Paul M's Flashchat 5 Integration for vB 3.8 v3.8.002
  4. Paul M's Members who are chatting in Flashchat 5 v3.8.002
  5. Mosh's Flashchat 5: Who is chatting (Add On) v3.8.005
  6. 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 Members who are chatting in Flashchat 5.

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.

Paul M's has kindly given me permission to use some of his code in my Who is chatting add-on hacks.

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

What You Get
  1. It displays the chat list under the navbar in the following locations:
    • vBadvanced CMPS
  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 select which locations this hack is displayed (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.


vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can only be used with v3.8.0 and later versions.

For the unsupported v3.7.x version of this hack - check here. For the unsupported v3.6.x version of this hack - check here.

NOTE: I will not be upgrading this hack to vBulletin v4.0.x.

I have only tested this in a test environment and it worked fine, so if all other required hacks to install before installing this are working 100% and you have followed my instructions to correctly, then I am at a loss as to what the problem is without checking your site out for myself.

If want me to take a look then feel free to PM me your site address, an temp admin user (with permissions Can Administer Settings, Can Administer Styles and Can Administer Plugins), without these I cannot help you. I will look at the problem when I have time, and even if I have a look, I can not guarantee that I will be able to fix it, but should be able to, so it is up to you what you want to do.

This is just a maintenance release, nothing has changed (code-wise), so no need to update if you don't want to.

In my usergroup manager I can't see the option to turn this on.

Is there also a way to add this to a left or right sidebar?

You probably did not do Step 1 from the installation instructions.

It is possible, but not I do not support custom edits (see below).

All hacks are installed and the module is working on everything except the vBa homepage.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

If it works on every other page, then there only three things I can think that could cause this problem:
  • The define('THIS_SCRIPT', 'adv_index'); line in the file cmps_index.php has been changed to something else
  • The bitfield_ms_wic_addon.xml file was not uploaded to your /includes/xml folder
  • Usergroup permissions were not set
All of my Add-on hacks depend on $ad_location[ad_navbar_below] being available in the navbar template, and if it works on all the other locations, it should also work on vBadvanced CMPS as well, so I am not adding it as the fourth thing I can think of.

See screenshot below with vBavanced CMPS v3.2.0 installed (latest vBadvanced version) to see it working.

Yep...
  • Checked index.php (old cmps_index.php) file, looks good
  • .xml file is in place
  • Permissions set
  • $ad_location.... is in place

This one has me puzzled.

Be quite honest with you, I can not either.

The only other thing I can suggest is to do a full un-installation of the hack, and then re-install it.

If that does not do it, then there is nothing else I can do to help.

This is great. Which template do I edit to make the "Members currently using Flashchat" a link to enter the chat?

Also is it possible to change this title to something else? I'd like people to know it's a link to the chat.

The below should work, but if it does not you are on your own.

Edit the Display_Chatters_Addon template, find:


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

Replace with:


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

Edit phrase wic_using_flashchat.
