YaBB Chat Board 0.85

This Mods may let you set some boards as "Chat Boards" in your Manage Boards page. In Chat Boards, there is a link after each Thread which opens the same Thread with a IRC-like chat style in a new window. You can reply to the thread quickly just by typing a message into the message field at the bottom of the window. In the right, there is a list showing all users who currently have opened this window. The chat window will be refreshed every 15 seconds for registered users and every 61 seconds for guests. There are no Op functions available for the chat currently but I'm going to add some like kicking users and setting other Ops.

To install, use the following steps:

1. Install this Mod.
2. Upload all modified files and the ChatBoard.pl to your YaBB.
3. Upload the chat.css to the folder which is lying two levels over the main YaBB folder.

Users post counters will never increase when they post in a chat window.

You should register an additional user called "ChanServ" and give it a special rank because it will tell of members leaving and entering, else people can do rubbish with this.

I assume he means stick it in your root html folder - as yabb would be in html/cgi-bin/yabb you just put chat.pl in html/

The steps I took;

I had to modify the mod, as I have the Polls mod installed - This meant I had to change Step 7 to this;

       <td class="windowbg" valign="middle" width="44%" bgcolor="$color{'windowbg'}"><font size="2">$new $mpoll<a href="$cgi;action=display;num=$mnum"><b>$msub</b></a> $pages$openchat</font></td>

I uploaded the modified files, stuck chat.css in my root html folder, and chatboard.pl in my sources folder.

I have also tried with chatboard.pl in my yabb folder.

welll,..............
i tried it and it all seemed fine ,i could see the "join chat" etc for posts etc,
upon entry i noticed the 1st thing i needed to change was the css,..
but i was litteraly amazed when i could actualy see posts as "chat entries" it opened, and looked like a chat room !
brilliant stuff,...
but upon typing and hitting send i noticed a yellow error on page flag in the taskbar, and the mouse pointer went into "busy"mode -
now heres where i did the Mr Ploppy in my underwear,.
the mouse pointer never stopped giving the "busy" sign,
and worse still,i exited the board and tried to re-enter ,...
and my entire site was down Sad
nothing opened, i did a Mr Ploppy again,..........  Cry
i quickly uninstalled the mod and still no action on my site,.
i noticed two huge .core files residing in my server,..
i deleted them,..and waited 2 mins and all was well.
i dont know if it was pure coincedence .- like my server throwing a wobbler at the same time as i uploaded and tested the mod,...
like i said "im not sure" ill try again late on tonite when my sites more quiet Wink
this mod has Huge potential tho and im determined to get it working Wink
* on a note.,. it does seem that the chat i typed in the "rooms" were entered in the post, a good sign, ill try again in a minuite Smiley

yeh,its a def i am getting an error,
the page upon entry on chat seems to hang and also when a line is typed and "send" is pressed it does give another java error,and it doesnt display the entered text.,just hangs.causing errors in a chain like reaction.
this time i uninstalled with no probs.
good idea tho Wink
