First I want to reissue and confirm the problem with double slash in real path. This problem was already issued by Vryce. I use the following code which works fine for me (i mainly modified the last line and added the one above):

File: includes/functions.php

Code: Select all

function real_path($url)
	global $board_config;
	$server_protocol = ( $board_config['cookie_secure'] ) ? 'https://' : 'http://';
	$server_name = trim($board_config['server_name']);
	$server_port = ( $board_config['server_port'] <> 80 ) ? ':' . trim($board_config['server_port']) . '/' : '/';
	$script_name = preg_replace('#^\/?(.*?)\/?$#', '\1', trim($board_config['script_path']));
	$script_name = ( $script_name != '' ) ? $script_name . '/' : '/';
	return $server_protocol . $server_name . $server_port . $script_name . $url;
Second I want to reissue and confirm the problem with screen names whose format contains a space and which can be found in vanilla phpBB (version 2.0.14) as well. This problem was already issued by Chad711 and said to be solved by a friend of his. However I can't confirm his solution. I use the following code which works fine for me (the string is changed to lower case at the same time):

File: viewtopic.php:

Code: Select all

		$aim_img = ( $postrow[$i]['user_aim'] ) ? '<a href="aim:goim?screenname=' . str_replace(' ', '', $postrow[$i]['user_aim']) . '&message=Hello+Are+you+there?"><img src="http://big.oscar.aol.com/' . str_replace(' ', '', strtolower($postrow[$i]['user_aim'])) . '?on_url='.$images['icon_aim_online'].'&off_url='.$images['icon_aim_offline'].'" alt="' . $lang['AIM'] . '" title="' . $lang['AIM'] . '" border="0" /></a>' : '';
File: privmsg.php:

Code: Select all

	$aim_img = ( $privmsg['user_aim'] ) ? '<a href="aim:goim?screenname=' . str_replace(' ', '', $privmsg['user_aim']) . '&message=Hello+Are+you+there?"><img src="http://big.oscar.aol.com/' . str_replace(' ', '', strtolower($privmsg['user_aim'])) . '?on_url='.$images['icon_aim_online'].'&off_url='.$images['icon_aim_offline'].'" alt="' . $lang['AIM'] . '" title="' . $lang['AIM'] . '" border="0" /></a>' : '';
File: includes/usercp_viewprofile.php:

Code: Select all

$aim_img = ( $profiledata['user_aim'] ) ? '<a href="aim:goim?screenname=' . str_replace(' ', '', $profiledata['user_aim']) . '&message=Hello+Are+you+there?"><img src="http://big.oscar.aol.com/' . str_replace(' ', '', strtolower($profiledata['user_aim'])) . '?on_url='.$images['icon_aim_online'].'&off_url='.$images['icon_aim_offline'].'" alt="' . $lang['AIM'] . '" title="' . $lang['AIM'] . '" border="0" /></a>' : '&nbsp;';
Third I can confirm that this mod works fine on phpBB ver. 2.0.14!

General note to all - This mod will not work correctly if the forum domain is listed in Trusted Sites with IE6 SP2 and WinXP SP2. (This is not to say that the mod is defective in any way)

The reason is that the http call to Oscar.AOL includes referance to the pictures listed on the forum you are viewing. (Example: If online - show forum.com/Online.jpg) This makes IE to think Oscar.AOL is trying to call out a trusted site file.

It took me a while and a little experimation to figure that one out. :twisted:

PS - Mod is working great now after removing my website - www.wruckus.com - and the Yahoo! one started working at the same time.

on the memberlist I put a column for the people who have aim icons but I cannot for the life of me program it so it will show if they are offline or online.

This is in the memberlist_body_tpl which creates the table and works fine:
<table width="100%" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="1" border="0" class="forumline">
<th height="25" class="thCornerL" nowrap="nowrap">#</th>
<th class="thTop" nowrap="nowrap">&nbsp;</th>
<th class="thTop" nowrap="nowrap">{L_USERNAME}</th>
<th class="thTop" nowrap="nowrap">{L_EMAIL}</th>
<th class="thTop" nowrap="nowrap">{L_FROM}</th>
<th class="thTop" nowrap="nowrap">{L_JOINED}</th>
<th class="thTop" nowrap="nowrap">{L_POSTS}</th>
<th class="thTop" nowrap="nowrap">{L_WEBSITE}</th>
<th class="thCornerR" nowrap="nowrap">AIM</th>
<!-- BEGIN memberrow -->
<td class="{memberrow.ROW_CLASS}" align="center"><span class="gen">&nbsp;{memberrow.ROW_NUMBER}&nbsp;</span></td>
<td class="{memberrow.ROW_CLASS}" align="center">&nbsp;{memberrow.PM_IMG}&nbsp;</td>
<td class="{memberrow.ROW_CLASS}" align="center"><span class="gen"><a href="{memberrow.U_VIEWPROFILE}" class="gen">{memberrow.USERNAME}</a></span></td>
<td class="{memberrow.ROW_CLASS}" align="center" valign="middle">&nbsp;{memberrow.EMAIL_IMG}&nbsp;</td>
<td class="{memberrow.ROW_CLASS}" align="center" valign="middle"><span class="gen">{memberrow.FROM}</span></td>
<td class="{memberrow.ROW_CLASS}" align="center" valign="middle"><span class="gensmall">{memberrow.JOINED}</span></td>
<td class="{memberrow.ROW_CLASS}" align="center" valign="middle"><span class="gen">{memberrow.POSTS}</span></td>
<td class="{memberrow.ROW_CLASS}" align="center"valign="middle"><span class="gen">{memberrow.WWW_IMG}&nbsp;</span></td>
<td class="{memberrow.ROW_CLASS}" align="center">&nbsp;{memberrow.AIM_IMG}&nbsp;</td>
<!-- END memberrow -->

I've tried to change the memberlist PHP to be somewhat like the usercp_viewprofile.php but it doesn't work. what works right now and just shows the aim icon is this:
$aim_img = ( $row['user_aim'] ) ? '<a href="aim:goim?screenname=' . $row['user_aim'] . '&message=Hello+Are+you+there?"><img src="' . $images['icon_aim'] . '" alt="' . $lang['AIM'] . '" title="' . $lang['AIM'] . '" border="0" /></a>' : '&nbsp;';

Can someone please help me with this code? Thanks.

I just finished doing all the tasks required for this mod, which I am using the newest version of phpbb, and when I finished uploading all the files and tried going to the forum to test it all I got was a blank page.

No error message, nothing. I just triple checked the codes I entered and made sure I did everything asked.

I do have a few questions. For this code we are suppose to replace...

Code: Select all

$aim_img = ( $privmsg['user_aim'] ) ? '<a href="aim:goim?screenname=' . $privmsg['user_aim'] . '&message=Hello+Are+you+there?"><img src="' . $images['icon_aim'] . '" alt="' . $lang['AIM'] . '" title="' . $lang['AIM'] . '" border="0" /></a>' : '';
There are two of them and what we replace them are two others. but it does not say to remove both of them. I initially removed only the one we are asked to find and after nothing worked I removed the 2nd line.

The second question is that in this line which is repeated three times throughout the mod one of the actual lines of code is commented out.

Code: Select all

    // MOD - AIM ONLINE/OFFLINE - AbelaJohnB
    // $aim_img = ( $privmsg['user_aim'] ) ? '<a href="aim:goim?screenname=' . $privmsg['user_aim'] . '&message=Hello+Are+you+there?"><img src="' . $images['icon_aim'] . '" alt="' . $lang['AIM'] . '" title="' . $lang['AIM'] . '" border="0" /></a>' : '';
    $aim_img = ( $privmsg['user_aim'] ) ? '<a href="aim:goim?screenname=' . $privmsg['user_aim'] . '&message=Hello+Are+you+there?"><img src="http://big.oscar.aol.com/' . $privmsg['user_aim'] . '?on_url='.$images['icon_aim_online'].'&off_url='.$images['icon_aim_offline'].'" alt="' . $lang['AIM'] . '" title="' . $lang['AIM'] . '" border="0" /></a>' : '';
    // MOD - AIM ONLINE/OFFLINE - AbelaJohnB
I initially removed these additonal comments, but now I am going back to add them and see what happens.

Works in some browsers, not in others?

Post by HuntingtonRay »

I installed the mod with php 2.0.21. My AIM icon online-offline images work fine in Mac's Safari (2.0.2) browser, but neither icon ever shows up in the Mac's Firefox ( browser - just the ALT text. Dunno about other browsers/platforms yet.

The html source code generated in both browsers is identical:

//big.oscar.aol.com/myname?on_url=http://vmug.org/phpbb/templates/Neon/im ... ffline.gif

Is there is bug in Firefox and not Safari? I would have thought the opposite. Any thoughts? Anyone experience this or have any solutions?

Besides the Trusted site downfall...

In particular, does it have any effect on page load speed.

Anyway they are in the profile part here. http://silentkillops.com/phpBB/profile. ... rofile&u=2 I just don't get it I am sorry.

<-- php noob.

I installed the AIM online/offline mod (phpBB2 v 2.0.21) and instead of the icons, it shows "AIM Address"

I replaced the default images that came with the mod with my own to match my template and named them accordingly:

Image - icon_aim_online.gif
Image - icon_aim_online_green.gif
Image - icon_aim_offline.GIF
Image - icon_aim_offline_red.GIF

and as I said, instead of the image, or a broken image for that matter, it shows a link reading "AIM Address
which initiates the "Hello are you there?" message.

Help would be appreciated asap, but no need to rush.

Fixed. I just changed the coding that came with the mod to include the .gif after the icon_aim_offline/online etc.
