Re: [Release] ChatLite v0.5.1 (javascript chat on forum index)

hey 'Neck' and/or 'slickplaid' i just downloaded and installed your ChatLite 0.60 but it doesn't work very well with the style "Mercury 3" any chance you can help me with this?

link to style:

as you can see it doesn't quite fit the sites layout right and the color is all wrong and also the chats are showing in white and you can't see them

Re: [Release] ChatLite v0.5.1 (javascript chat on forum index)

i've kinda sorted this out by editing the css from the chat to fit the forum a bit nicer but it'd still be nice to get an official fix smile

Re: [Release] ChatLite v0.5.1 (javascript chat on forum index)

I'm working on releasing a new version of my modified chat. All issues you're having should be resolved in this release.

Can't wait!
I hope you'll make a new topic announcing its release when ready

Re: [Release] ChatLite v0.5.1 (javascript chat on forum index)

I will, definitely. I'll be releasing it under a different name since it is a fork of the original development.

Re: [Release] ChatLite v0.5.1 (javascript chat on forum index)

If you have time, I'd love to see the proposed feature list of your chatroom design. smile

Re: [Release] ChatLite v0.5.1 (javascript chat on forum index)

New feature list:

  • Emotes can be sent using /me

  • Private Messaging, modal message boxes

  • Private Chatroom for Moderators/Admins to use

  • You can set how many messages to retain in the chatbox

  • Ability to log chat

  • Hover tooltips on usernames with userinfo and statistics

  • Font Colors

  • Smileys

  • Completely rewritten to use jQuery instead of Prototype (Possible fork of my development in that area)
    If a user logs off or goes inactive, it will gray out their text

  • Option to either use a flatfile or mysql to retain messages

  • Ability to select who can view the chatbox

  • CSS compatibility with other styles

About 1/4 of these are finished so far. The other 3/4 are on my TODO list. big_smile

Re: [Release] ChatLite v0.5.1 (javascript chat on forum index)

Cool! Sounds good.
How will the chatbox/window be displayed? And will you be able to see who is currently viewing the chatroom as opposed to just being logged on?

Re: [Release] ChatLite v0.5.1 (javascript chat on forum index)

How about moving the chat to it's own page? Will this be possible?

tnx

Re: [Release] ChatLite v0.5.1 (javascript chat on forum index)

slickplaid, any beta version? tongue

Re: [Release] ChatLite v0.5.1 (javascript chat on forum index)

Having issues with this extension at http://forums.fsmod.com/  it works generally flawlessly, except for users in IE7.  They see only one message at a time, from days ago.  And have to refresh the page manually repetitively to see each consecutive message until they reach the most recent message.

Re: [Release] ChatLite v0.5.1 (javascript chat on forum index)

Hi, is there a way to make this extension viewable only to registered users? I don't like the security risks of having it list out user names, it allows for a possible brute force attack. Don't want spam. Thank you in advance!

Re: [Release] ChatLite v0.5.1 (javascript chat on forum index)

Yes, there is. I will be releasing a temporary update until I can finish more that will allow you to select whether it can be viewed by guests or not.

If you want to do a quick fix for that, you can add this into the manifest.xml, check the first and last lines, those are the ones you'll need to add:

in <hook id="hd_head">  line ~150-170

if(!$forum_user['is_guest']) { // this will remove the chat for users that aren't logged in
    
            $forum_head['prototypejs'] = '<script type="text/javascript" src="'.$ext_info['url'].'/media/js/prototype.js"></script>';
            $forum_head['ek_chatlitejs'] = '<script type="text/javascript" src="'.$ext_info['url'].'/media/js/chat.js?logged='.(($forum_user['is_guest']) ? 0 :(($forum_user['g_id'] == FORUM_ADMIN) ? 2 : 1)).'&amp;baseUri='.$base_url.'/&amp;extUri='.$ext_info['url'].'/"></script>';
    
            if (file_exists($ext_info['path'].'/media/js/lang/'.$forum_user['language'].'.js')) {
                $forum_head['ek_chatlitelangjs'] = '<script type="text/javascript" src="'.$ext_info['url'].'/media/js/lang/'.$forum_user['language'].'.js"></script>';
            } else {
                $forum_head['ek_chatlitelangjs'] = '<script type="text/javascript" src="'.$ext_info['url'].'/media/js/lang/English.js"></script>';
            }
    
            $ek_chatlite_css = (file_exists($ext_info['path'].'/media/css/'.$forum_user['style'].'.css')) ? $forum_user['style'] : 'default';
            $forum_head['style_ek_chatlite'] = '<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="'.$ext_info['url'].'/media/css/'.$ek_chatlite_css.'.css" />';
    }  // this is the ending brace for removing guest access

And since this is a fork of the original development, it'll be released under a different name.

Ok great. Now, I'm not sure if you can help with this or not. Can I do the same thing with the guest user while using Daris Portal. See: http://punbb.informer.com/forums/topic/ … -by-daris/

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much for the help!

Re: [Release] ChatLite v0.5.1 (javascript chat on forum index)

I tried that fix, that did not work. It is still working, but shows up still on the guest page.

Re: [Release] ChatLite v0.5.1 (javascript chat on forum index)

You put both

if(!$forum_user['is_guest']) {

and the trailing

}

at the end?

Yes, the only difference between what you said and gave me, was that the lines @ 38, not 150.

Try only putting it around the javascript includes:

if(!$forum_user['is_guest']) { // this will remove the chat for users that aren't logged in
    
            $forum_head['prototypejs'] = '<script type="text/javascript" src="'.$ext_info['url'].'/media/js/prototype.js"></script>';
            $forum_head['ek_chatlitejs'] = '<script type="text/javascript" src="'.$ext_info['url'].'/media/js/chat.js?logged='.(($forum_user['is_guest']) ? 0 :(($forum_user['g_id'] == FORUM_ADMIN) ? 2 : 1)).'&amp;baseUri='.$base_url.'/&amp;extUri='.$ext_info['url'].'/"></script>';
    
}

Ok, I will give it a try later tonight. Thanks!

Check the values of $db_host, $db_name, $db_username, $db_password in the <FORUM_ROOT>/config.php. If those values are ok, contact your hoster.
