    On irc.webmaster.com I am getting an error message when joining the chat room that I registered earlier. This happens whenever the room is empty, no matter who joins it.

    #mychannel Cannot join channel. Only registered, identified users can create channels.

    There are different ways that irc info grabbing can be done now. I have been using the thales project, which provides a mySQL gateway to the irc network, enabling you to grab all sorts of information and stats about the current state of irc.

    Once vB3 goes gold I will hopefully be releasing a hack to take advantage of thales mysql gateway or Anopes new IRC services which are currently in beta and on their way to real time database querying.

    If anyone is interested in an ircd, eggdrop, services and whos on-line on the forums - please forum PM me. I've just setup the http://forums.paintballcity.net chat system and it seems to be working well. Speak to Jim Murray if you have any questions about my work.

    It is chargable however, as it does take some time to setup etc.

    Just so you all know.

    I have posted a modification to this hack, one that makes it possible to not need an entire custom template set, here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...threadid=33050

    This modification also makes it extremely simple to add the chat location to your Who's Online (it's described there, too).

    yeh i get that, all i want though is a list of people going through the forum to the chat page. So under chat it literally has a list of names of those who have accessed the PHP chat page.

    Any thoughts?

    I ran this for a while, the problem is that people can join the same channel with other IRC clients and set/change their name to "impersonate" board users etc - so you can't be sure who you are chatting with.

    Anyway to stop this (eg use name prefix characters in the applet parameters that couldn't be typed in)?

    Sorry to drag this up again...

    But im not worried about adding any bots to the IRC channel for getting the usernames out all i want to do is show who is in the forum named chat.

    So here is the question how do i show who is in the chat forum on the forumdisplay.php without the need for eggdrops and ircd

    I just dont knwo how to get it working, ive tried searching VB.com but this is the best post i can find.

    We upgraded to v2.2.0 this week if that helps.

    Thanks

    Help!

    I want to try this so I downloaded and uploaded the style set as instructed and renamed it.

    I then went to "modify styles" - then "Edit fonts/colours/properties", then "edit templates".

    I found the "forumdisplay" and selected "change original" - easy enough BUT my default templates were changed for the main BB.

    I don't understand about styles and templates really - can you tell me how I make sure the template change only affects the new style?

    Don't you need another set of the templates??

    I read freddies post above and did the following:[list=1][*]Downloaded an eggdrop bot from www.eggheads.org[*]Configured it to sit in my IRC channel and not do a lot[*]added the names.tcl script to it, so that it outputs the info about the people currently chatting to a file on my site[*]Setup a cron job (scheduled task) to run every minute and insert the IRC info from the file into the database[*]Added the code in the index.php to get the IRC whos online variables from the database and display on the index page.[/list=1]

    It helps if you have some knowledge of IRC and/or eggdrops. I didn't have much of either, but I could compile the eggie on my server by spending a little time reading the docs and the output from my actions. After that, adding scripts is a breeze - and all the code I actually needed was in freddies posts above.

    GL.
