  • Flashchat

    So I'm messing around with FlashChat, but for the life of me can't figure out how to enable transcripts (chat logs)!

    Is there such a feature with FlashChat?

    I don't see any log file being created automatically and don't see an entry in the /inc/config.php that is obvious, for use to enable the option.

    I'm looking to have either an html or php file containing each chat session's content for viewing at a later date, to be included elsewhere on my site.

    Thanks for any help!

    I have installed Flashchat at my website. I don't look at the logs. Never tried.

    The admin seems to be a bit buggy (imho), but the actual chat interface is way too cool. So, I'll keep it.

        A client I worked with purchased this script and we were on a tight schedule and the integration and customization of it wasn't easy. Although the author is very helpful if you send him an email. Ask this question to him via email

          I found integration fairly easy.

          Edit one file, upload the files, set a couple of permissions and then run the installer.

          I had it working in a couple of minutes and it's great, my members love it.

          Well worth $5!!

            Yeah, I'd have to say that installation was pretty easy too.

            I wanted to turn off all the different thems and just have one. The reason for this is that members can set/choose their own themes. When they change a theme, the text color changes. The tenxt color for some themes is hard for users with other themes to see.

            ..so, I turned them all off except one. It was a bit tricky, but I worked it all out after about 30 minutes.

            All in all for $5, you can't go wrong. It's a fantastic peice of coding for that price. Also, it hasn't crashed or done anything stupid since I installed in several months ago.

            Better still, it hardly uses any resources.

            I highly recommend it.

              To my original question....does anyone know how to turning the transcript (chat log) option on or is this not a feature that is included. I was under the assumption it would be, but I can't find it or any reference to it?

              Thanks.

                Installation is easy, it works. But there was so many things that I needed to do to make the integration stronger, like I wanted the flashchat actually inside the forum window and integrated with my style but I found no documentation on this. It's annoying how it pops up for example.

                funkmiester - have you tried emailing the author like I suggested?

                  lol, I think funkmiester is gonna get upset with us soon. No one is actually answering his question.

                  To be honest, my admin isn't working properly. All I can do is set up rooms. The other features return errors, but I haven't needed those features yet, so I haven't bothered looking into the errors.

                  You can find your logs here:

                    Thanks everyone for trying to answer my question As MrLeN says, the admin is pretty awful, so despite a great frontend, I'll wait 'til they fix-up the back end.

                    Thanks again.
