Chat questions

Post by ladynicole on May 9th 2011, 11:44 am

Hello,
I have an external (excellent!) chatroom on my forum (Addonchat).
I put it on as a widget on the Index page.

I want to activate AUTO LOGIN for my users, and from what I understand, it is possible if I can get certain "variables" from Forumotion.

This is what I need to do:

"Your recent inquiry concerning 'How to activated auto login' (Ticket ID: 47309-3616041250) has been updated:

Hi Nicole,

Your ticket was assigned to development some time ago. I apologize again for the wait - we get quite backed up during the late development stages of major release. Technicians are always available for basic assistance, but some of the more advanced questions are routed my way.

I've taken a look at the Forumotion FAQ and while I was able to find instructions for creating a separate page (which would allow you to embed AddonChat should you want) at http://help.forumotion.com/t13528-creating-an-html-page

, I was unable to find instructions for including forum variables (such as the user's name) within content.

Often times, hosted forum applications will allow their users to insert variables in content. E.g., they may have a variable code such as a php "username".
If they do offer this, we can definitely get automatic log-in working for you. Remote authentication; however; probably won't be possible unless our two companies can open a dialog. We're certainly amicable to working with other companies to implement better integration.

I would suggest contacting a representative at Forumotion. They may be able to provide you with instructions for using these variables if it's possible, or they may be open to suggestions.

Regards,

Chris Duerr

My question, can I find forum variables (such as the user's name) within content? Can Forumotion help me with this?

Thanks,

Nicole

Thanks Sanket, can this be used on a new HTML page?
If so, I will contact Addonchat and see how this works.

I have a chatbar which works fine in a widget.
It even auto logs in with the username of the logged in member.

I have a shoutbox (shoutmix) that auto logs in BUT its part of the forum (widget), whereas Addonchat opens up in a seperate window

I am pretty sure it wont work, we had addonchat, and couldn't make the autolog in work at all, but I wasn't that bothered so didnt ask support.

ETA we have gone back to using the forum chatbox...now it has the pop out feature and can be opened into a full window it is really good - to be honest the only things it lacks that add on chat had was sounds and private chats ...but to save 8 a month I can live without them!

Also forum chat is great as iphones etc can use it...addonchat has to have the extra module purchased to use for mobiles!

Ill see what the Addonchat ppl can do with the variables. Even if the auto login doesnt work, Ill keep it. It has great features and users really love it.
Im waiting to hear back from them, and will post here if something interesting turns out....

what chat are we talking about? forumotrions chat or some other chat you created that provides you a code?

Either one should be able to be used on a html page, but if it is a chat that you got from somewhere else and created, then it would depend on how to set what ever settings you want for it with what ever options they provide?

As far as the html page goes, as long as you have a code for it the i dont see why it would not work.I have to see exactly what it is your talking about and trying to do.

however i you will not be able to incorporate any of forumotions chat options to a different chat box you created elsewhere

Update everyone.

I have Addonchat which appears as a widget on my Index page.

Thanks Sanket for providing me with the list of Variables.

The chat people confirgured the chatroom code for me using the username variable and now my chat opens as a popup and forum members are automatically logged in !

We love this chat, it has grat features such as a general chatroom as well as private chatting between members. It is highly customizable and was exactly what i was looking for Smile

Thanks again for all the help.

You can mark this as solved!

Ok. For others with the same inquiry, be sure to contact the host of any such chats as this and provide them the forumotion variables list for them to see if it's compatibil and or be configured to work or not Smile?

Since the topic was marked solved, i will now lock the thread.
