ChatBox for YaBB 2.6.11
Version: 1.4
Author: Carsten (updated for 2.6.11 by Dandello)

This mod adds a Chat Box with wysiwyg editor to your 2.6.11 Forum.
Besides a "General Chat" room it uses the existing Board names as Chat room names.
It'll show a list of participants for every Chat room.
Participants can start/stop Chat auto-update.

Admin can:
- Enable / disable Chat
- Enable Chat Button on Message Index
- Enable / disable alert before deleting a Chat message
- Exclude Board names not wanted as Chat rooms
- Set max. number of characters in a Chat message
- Set the number of minutes Chat messages stay alive
- Set the number of minutes inactive participants stay in the Chat log
- Set Chat/participants update rate in seconds

Before you apply this mod you must download the Variables/Settings.pm file to the Variables folder in your BoardMod folder structure.
You must also create a 'chat' folder in the Variables folder. CHMOD this to 755.

Apply this mod.

Upload (in ASCII mode):
cgi-bin/yabb2/Admin/ModList.pm
cgi-bin/yabb2/Admin/NewSettings.pm
cgi-bin/yabb2/Admin/Settings_Main.pm
cgi-bin/yabb2/Languages/English/Menu.lng
cgi-bin/yabb2/Sources/AdvancedTabs.pm
cgi-bin/yabb2/Sources/MessageIndex.pm
cgi-bin/yabb2/Sources/Subs.pm
cgi-bin/yabb2/Sources/SubList.pm
cgi-bin/yabb2/Sources/TabMenu.pm

cgi-bin/yabb2/Templates/default/MessageIndex.template
cgi-bin/yabb2/Templates/default/Menu.def
cgi-bin/yabb2/Variables/Settings.pm
public_html/yabbfiles/Templates/Forum/default.css

From the zip package upload (in ASCII mode):

cgi-bin/yabb2/Languages/English/Mods/ChatBox.lng
cgi-bin/yabb2/Sources/Mods/ChatBox.pm

and (in binary mode):
public_html/yabbfiles/ModImages/chat1.png
public_html/yabbfiles/ModImages/chatce/*.*


Go to "Admin Center - Forum Settings - Chat" and check "Enable Chat".

The "Chat" tab is positioned as the last tab in the menu. You can use "Edit tabs" to push it to another position.

Note: The url and email insert section still doesn't work in FireFox and MSIE - this appears to be a DOM issue.

I have added this mod to a forum I manage which is running at http://www.britsincrete.co.uk
When the chat mod is enabled in the admin section on two of the forum boards I am getting the following error message when you click to open the board:

Untrapped Error :
Can't locate ./Templates/1/BoardIndex.template in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/lib64/perl5 /usr/local/share/perl5 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 . ./Modules) at ./Sources/Subs.pm line 2996.

If the chat mod is not enabled in the admin setion the forum runs completely normally.
I have re-checked the installatrion of the code etc and all is correct.
Any ideas why I am seeing this on two of the boards while all the rest function normally with chat enabled.
Thanks in advance.

Stuart

Unfortunately I'm not able to login to your site and haven't gotten the requested password reset.

All I can come up with for the problem is: what do those 2 boards have in common that they don't have in common with the ones that work? (password protected, board rules, etc.)

Thanks for the reply, I will have a look at why you are not receiving the password reset emails and check the board rules and come back with another comment shortly.
Thanks for looking into this for me. Grin

Update:
I have just noticed that these two boards are the only boards with child boards on them. Apart from that they are all similar across the site.  Sad
Also, the error only appears when accessing the parent board not the child board.

Update 2:
I have just been into the forum chat settings and  the error seems to have be associated with ticking the Show chat button on message index. If this remains unchecked the chat box is functioning normally. Cheesy  I will keep an eye on it for the next week or so and update again if there is a problem. Shocked
As I am unfamiliar with the ChatBox mod I am not sure what function I am missing by not having this checked.  Embarrassed

I just installed the chat mod on my 2.6.12 forum and so far so good - at least I can chat with myself!

Do you think there might be a way to add an indicator that would show if somebody was in the chat or even a little box showing user names?
