Re: [Beta] AJAX Chat/Shoutbox MOD 2.0.0 Beta 8

Post by AlucardHS »

Ok well i have installed this mod on 3.0 and it works really well but i have a few questions.

1. When I put in the common.php edited file in its location it gave me errors on the index and the acp. So i put the original back and it seems to be working fine. Is that file really needed for it to run smoothly cause its running ok from what i can see wit the 3.0 version?

2. On the front page you say to run that Query after the installed. How do i go by doing that?

3. I was wondering if I can just use the chat button next to FAQ instead of having it at the bottom of the main index page?

4. The way that "Kyle2k7" has his chat setup, how can i change mine like that ?

5. Will the chat MOD show hidden user on the forum in the box to the right?

Ok I think that it, i would ask how to make the chat lines smaller but i think i see how from a few post in this topic. I just want to make sure how to do other things before i move it from the test site to the real live site.

Thank you,
Alu

I will answer what I can.
You can use just the button for chat in the Navigation bar on you index page (it will open up in its own window)
You dont have to add it into over_all_header.html and have it show on the index page.

The edits in common.php are necessary. they should not cause problems unless you did not add the edits to its own blank line.

The query is ran by using phpMyAdmin or some other database manager.

I'm not sure how the chat handles hidden users, I do not allow such on my forums, whats the point.

editing the chat is not toooooo hard. but can be puzzling, and this thread is riddled with suggestions.

I haven't looked at Kyle2k7's page

Does this work with any 3.0 version template or just subsilver and prosilver?

it has instructions for prosilver, but it will work with all styles… just like with any other MOD, you have to figure out the changes for each style other than prosilver.

There are 2 styles for this provided… one for prosilver and the other for subsilver, if the style you're adding this to is subsilver based, use the subsilver template and same for prosilver… it's pretty easy to do.

These are really dumb questions but I've searched the thread for an answer and can't find 'em, so...

The installation instructions call for:

Code: Select all

Copy: root/adm/mods/ajax_chat_version.php
To: adm/mods/ajax_chat_version.php
I don't have a "mods" dir in "adm". Am I supposed to create this dir?

Second dumb question. The instructions for editing "language/en/common.php" include:

Code: Select all

FIND: 'VIEWED'   => 'Viewed',
But I don't have that in my common.php file.

Running phpBB3 GOLD.

Thanks for any help!

Per MODX, if the directory doesn't exist, it needs to be created.
Instructions can't account for creating directories.

2nd, you don't need to find exactly that language string… it can be put anywhere… usually near the bottom or alphabetical.

Check /root/styles/subsilver . Got it installed on a subsilver-based board and it works brilliantly.

Maybe because you removed the credits to the mod maker? :(

in your index_body.html (if you ahve put chat on index)

Code: Select all

FInd :

<!-- INCLUDE chat_body.html -->

Replace with :

 <!-- IF S_USER_LOGGED_IN --> <!-- INCLUDE chat_body.html --> <!-- ENDIF -->
Now only Registred users can see the chat ;)

Have Fun :)
Thanks so much! (I'm reposting so folks don't have to dig through the thread to find this super-quick, super-easy fix) ...

Now ... Is there anything so easy for a hide/show button for those who don't want to see the chat?

Thanks!
