SA Chat Bar

MySpace/Facebook style chat bar for Simple Machines Forum.

SMF 2.0x - Chat Bar

Developed for SMF forums c/o SA @ http://www.facebook.com/devsamods           
Copyright 2013 Wayne Mankertz (SA)                           

SA Chat bar software integrates with SMF and works with SMF without working within SMF. This is done by loading the SMF cookie from the browser and verifying it against data saved in the database. This way of working allows SA Chat to run inside and outside of SMF and throughout your website as long as the user is logged into SMF.

The integration codes can be put into any html code. One in the head and one in the body. The install script however installs the JavaScript codes by default in the default theme, but you can add these codes into whatever template you like SMF or not.

here is so far a quite bit of possibilities left for you to explore with the custom template and chat sound system SA Chat has to offer. I am looking forward to what theme designers might have to add to this equation.

You can also customize how SA Chat works from the SMF Admin Panel. You can set the chat heart beat, message window heart beat and set how many days until the chat purges old messages.

SA Chat also comes with share links to MySpace, Facebook and Twitter. This allows your site visitors to post the page they are at to any of these social networks.

In the Who's Online section of the chat you will see all of your buddies. Just click on a buddy to start a chat session.

So far what the mod page says, SMF 2.0 RC3. May be compatible with other versions of the SMF 2 branch but currently untested.

However older versions where compatible. I had to switch the chat to use smcFunc to get approved here, so revision 17 and down with a little work will work with SMF1. Only bad part is it is not as feature rich, bugs and is not optimized.

The problem is custom themes, The chat usually only installs to the default theme's index.template.php. During the install you can select to install to additional themes but this does not always work.

Here is the manual way to install the chat on custom themes.

Open index.template.php in the theme you want 2-SI Chat to work in.

Find
</head>

Add Before
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.your-site.com/path_to_forum/2sichat/index.php?action=head"></script>

Find
<body>

Add After
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.your-site.com/path_to_forum/2sichat/index.php?action=body"></script>

Be sure to replace the path in the codes from http://www.your-site.com/path_to_forum to your site and path to your forum.

@NaYa

Well visited your site and the code seems to be in place in the template. This isn't a new issue and even though the mod installed correctly it usually means the PHP files for the chat can not execute.

So the problem is usually folder and file permissions. FTP to your site and try this.

2sichat 755
2sichat/index.php 755
2sichat/body.js.php 755
2sichat/head.js.php 755
2sichat/cache 755
2sichat/themes/default/index.php 755
