Re: Embed a Free video/audio chatroom with phpBB(123 Flash C

Post by lizzyathome »

FAQ: Is it free or commercial?
Answer: Free. Once the module is installed successfully, a free hosted chat room will be automatically generated for your phpBB, and the room name will be your domain name. The chat software has paid edition, too, to grant you more power over the chat room.

Details:

Server Modes of 123 Flash Chat

1) Free Trial Edition of 123 Flash Chat

Advantages: It’s free but has full functions, even the optional modules including audio and video chat.

Limitation: Only 10 concurrent users may use the room and you need to host it by yourself, which means a dedicated server with SSH access is required.

2) Free Hosting of 123 Flash Chat

Advantages: It’s hosted by TOPCMM 123 Flash Chat team, free of charge, no limit to the concurrent user number and provides the basic chat functions.

Limitation: Some management functions are missing.

3) Commercial Server Software or Hosting Service

Advantages: No advertisements, full support service, multiple client choices, etc.

So what the module can add to phpBB? It adds a chat button which links to a fabulous chat room, with multiple skins and multilingual support, written in flash or HTML/Ajax, and a visual setting panel, etc.

1. Chat Button
Firstly a chat button will be added to the top menu of the phpBB as the chat room entrance.

Image

2. Auto-login
After installing the module, the phpBB user database will be automatically immigrated to the chat room and auto-login will be enabled.

Therefore the phpBB users may click the “Chat”button or directly choose a chat room to enter, without being asked to login again.

3. Custom Settings in phpBB ACP

Enter phpBB ACP and you will find “123FLASHCHAT” tab, click it to enter the setting panel of the module:

Image

3.1 Server Mode and Integration URL

Here you may define the chat server mode (self hosted, TOPCMM paid hosting or TOPCMM free hosting), and get integration URL (if the first two server modes mentioned above) as shown below:

Image

3.2 Chat Status
The following data of the chat room can display on phpBB index page to attract more users to join chatting.

Total rooms, total connections, online users
Chat room list
Online user list
The 3 types of data can be individually disabled to display if you need.

Image

3.3 Various chat clients and different open modes
Three chat clients: flash client (standard, with full features), HTML/Ajax chat client (simple and neat) and avatar chat client (with walking cartoon figures).

Two open modes: embedded or popup.

Image

3.4 Change size, language and skin
You can change chat window size, language and a proper skin to match your website.

Image

Nine skins options are available:

4. Chat Admin Panel

Except the phpBB ACP, the chat admin panel is also imported here for your convenience. Please be aware that the admin account here might be different to that of the phpBB ACP.

Yes!
There is a free version with all function!
The only limitation is 10 users concurrent online.It would be enough for a small site.
:idea: Or you can install several ones on your site!

I installed this on my forum last night and it all went in ok, the only problem was it would not notice the forum members by default and showed the online status for people we do not know from Adam?? anyway I quickly deleted it as it's not what I was looking for and will stick with the ajax chatroom for now as it knows our members instantly and nobody from beyond the forum shows on the online list.

Thanks anyway
Cheers
Ron.

If you read instruction in this module carefully,you will find you need configure the chat room setting in admin panel at first to integrate it with your phpbb site.the user list you see is connected to a default chat room of this module.

It sounds good!
But considering that shoutbox is hot these days, I am in a dilemma whether to build a chat room in my web. :?

Hi,Gina
Maybe you will feel relaxed after having a look and try at our lite chat. ;)
This client is very small in file size (only about 32 kb) and has the basic chat functions. The benefit of the lite version is small and fast.
In other words, 123 Flash Chat is a luxurious shoutbox/ chatbox in Lite Chat Client!

Thank you!
The lite chat is pretty good!
While I have found another substitute for shout box on your site! :lol:
:arrow: It is your banner chat:

Don't you think that is more flexible than Lite chat ?????? (http://www.123flashchat.com/lite-chat-client.html)
