This mod completely integrates Skype and Ventirlo into your forum just as MSN and ICQ.  It is on every page that those two show up.

EDIT:

This mod completely integrates Skype, Gmail, Ventrilo, and MySpace information into the forum.

Also, it adds the additional functionality of making all messenger icons show online/offline status.

I worked hard to make sure that any place that the original four icons show up in smf...so do these.  The online/offline status was just an added bonus.

You can check out what it looks like by going to my forum and looking at any of the posts.

I have also corrected all of the errors with install and adding the fields to the database.

The newest version 1.0b corrects these issues and makes it compatible with RC3.

EDIT:  OK, corrected the Load.php error that was brought to my attention.  Hopefully if you have mods installed there no longer be an issue.

TechnoDragon

Ya, I saw that...have been trying to get someone to look at the mod to help me figure out what or why it won't work right...I do have a thread that shows how to do it all manually.

There is no open if statement, but you close one using

} else {
echo "<b><center>Installation of Skype & Ventrilo Icons 1.0 completed successfully (database already edited)</center></b>";
}


at the end. Therefore you get an error.

So can we manually edit something to allow this to complete the MOD install?  What's the workaround for this?

TechnoDragon

If you don't mind the manual edit of the database it is two simple fields added to the members table...Skype as tinytext, and Ventrilo as varchar with a value of 65

The package install looks as if it will install, but then I get an error on the page after trying to apply the mod and get the following error.......

"Parse error: parse error, unexpected '}' in /home/question/public_html/forum/Packages/temp/imscript.php on line 20"

I am also running the latest SMF (1.1RC2) and TinyPortal (0.8.6)....both are new installs.

If there are manual steps to install this, please give me a "STEP-By-STEP" manual install instruction listing and I will do it........I just really want the Ventrilo portion to be added

tha will take you to a very detailed explanation on how to do it...If you are wondering I even have been able to integrate the google mail field the same way!

So what are the exact mySQL commands to add the two required entries?  I want to make sure I do it correctly......and your link doesn't say.....just says it's for the faint of heart.....I am not faint of heart, I just need to know if I can copy them exactly from the installation routine source where it's SUPPOSED to add them or what?

TechnoDragon

To tell you, the way I did it was to just go into PHPMyAdmin and add the columns my self.  In mine it was "add new field" then it asks the name you want and the type...was actually very simple.  I had tried asking for help to edit that installscript file but noone responded unfortunately.

I've tried different edits to it, but have yet to get it to work myself.....

TechnoDragon

Edited the imscript file.  Tested it and it should correctly add the fields to the database now...let me know if it doesn't

TechnoDragon

Ok, sorry folks...after a long heietus, I have finally corrected all of the errors with this mod AND added some new features to it.

Let me know what you think!

TechnoDragon

Apparently you already had the skype field installed from either this mod from an earlier version or from another mod...

I tested the install package extensively on a clean version of smf rc3 with no errors using the default theme.  Did you have any errors in the install process before the mysql error?

If there were and you installed anyway, that is what can happen...did you save a backup of the files that are edited? (There are a total of i believe eight files modified for this mod)

yea i got error 2 while installing i ignored it i dont have backups :( but what if i replace existing files with original ? will all mod which i install also lost like Arcade, gallery and etc?  :-X

TechnoDragon

first...this is whay the moderators and major coders always say to keep current backups..

Second, yes, if you overwrite the new files with what you do have any mods you installed after that file will also be broken...you should never ignore the errors on install unless you know what to do to fix it!

I just spoke with another admin I know and this package installed on his rc3 forum perfectly as well...could you tell me what the errors were during your install?

the who.template is a new one...but the load one was one that I was alerted to last night...I am trying to see what is causing it to fail as I did not have any issues with installing it on my test site...hopefully I will have this issue resolved soon...as for the who issue...that was only one edit if i remember so that shouldn't be failing unles you have another mod installed...otherwise I will look into that as well
