Chat plugin (Frei Chat) for Elgg 1.8.X v1.4.181

Release Notes

Upgraded freichat to 6.2

Thanks to R.Cerceau for the updates.

PS : If you dont need the chatroom functionality use the preious version (1.3.181)

  • You can try to run the freichat in no conflict option. Go the the freichat admin panel > chat admin and enable this option.

  • Nudeler2

    Yes. Remove Jquery Conflicts in Freichat X Panel, Client Side Paramters, solves it.

    Thanks.

  • When I deactivate freichat within the plugins menu, it does not remove the chat window. The plugin activate/deavtivate option seems to be useless. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    @Team Webgalli

    Two questions:

    Can we use your integration-addon with all coming versions of freichat and did you meanwhile test it with elgg 1.8.2?

  • Yes, you can use the any version of freichat. just follow the upgarde information

    Its tested in 1.8.2

    @Rob : if you disable the plugin, the chat window will not appear

  • Nudeler2

    @Team Webgalli

    I have a secure question:

    Why stops frei-chat to work a few hours after I changed the password in the database, also in the arg.php?

  • Nudeler2

    What do you mean with this: DISCLAIMER : 3rd party integration, use at your own risk ;)

    Especially, what do you mean with this: use at your own risk ;). ?

    Do you not think, that you people have to inform about the background of this matter?

  • @Nudeler2 Use at our own risk meaning that it might not be 100% stable/working with the production server and with new upgrades of elgg don't take it to literal 

  • Nudeler2

    @PcCouchPotato

    Ah. So. Hm. And why must I give read-rights for the settings.php of elgg (with the database password) to the Evnix.com-site, and why stops frei-chat to work a few hours later, after I immediately changed the password in the database, also in the arg.php?

    What is going on with that "frei"-chat?!

    Can you tell this, too?

  • @Nudeler2 I don't use the plugin or associated with Evnix but they probably want to keep the power by Evnix and to do this they need your database password

  • Nudeler2

    @PcCouchPotato

    You're kidding or joking, or probably thinking that I' am stupid?

    This is a social network software.

    By the way: I have no problem with this. They may read everything what I write and know what I think, cause I write and say what I think

    But I will inform the people about that "risk" of "frei"-chat.

  • Nudeler2

    In Germany we have Datenschutzgesetz.

    You heard about that (f.e. facebook via I like button privacy data fetched and send to USA...)?

  • Nudeler2

    I mean, you heard about that this in Germany not may, without pointing on that matter?

  • @Nudeler2 - Calm down man, you're coming off as more than a little crazy.  Have you looked at the code? Where is it sending your information elsewhere?  Frei-chat needs access to your settings.php because it creates 2 tables on your database (not someone elses) that contains things that are a little important for it to function (like the chat log for instance).

    Webgalli is simply stating that the bulk of the plugin is a third party library, so they can't and won't be responsible for bugs/problems in it.  I can appreciate that.

    Don't like it? Don't trust it? Then don't use it, make your own or pay someone to do it (a non-American of course, you know, so they don't steal everything).

  • @Nudeler2 like facebook like button or login with facebook facebook accessing our users passwords and usernames

    when we save key for like button that key saves in db so facebook have access in our db! Maybe :

    i am not talking about this plugin!

    1. Not I' am the paranoid person!
    2. I meant not the people in USA, but this totally paranoid war-regime of the USA (and "Great" Britain, too)!
    3. What does interest me the code?! The fact is, that EvNix.com requieres the password of my database, asking for that via internet!
    4. Hello world: we do not need a password for databases anymore, we do not need security anymore - isn't that the free-est thing ever?!  :)
    5. And I already wrote this: By the way: I have no problem with this. They may read everything what I write and know what I think, cause I write and say what I think. (and what I see!) But I will inform the people about that "risk" of "frei"-chat.

    Look to your words! Don't mis-represent the facts!! Read my text again: I did not write what you suggest!!

    And above all: don't insult me! You may criticize the paranoid war-regimes!

    @Liang:

    Nice to see you again. :)

  • Hello, i want to disable the chat on my main page, how can do this!! please help. Thank you.

  • I have installed it on the elgg 1.8.3- I can't use the Modular modification and i've made the manual, but i can't see the chat in my home. The directory is not the same that is indicated but is page/elements and in the header.php i can't find the tag header. In the option page i have this message 

     

    Deprecated in 1.8: settings/chat/edit was deprecated in favor of plugins/chat/settings Called from [#8] /home/a5932204/public_html/elgg/engine/lib/views.php:503
    Please can you help me ?
     
  • @Vanmicky :

    $context = elgg_get_context();

    if($context != "your_context_name_for_home page'){

    showchat;

    }

    @martille : for the deprecated message, use the latest version. We can offer you support for the released plugin only. If you need support for standalone version, contact evnix team. they offer free installation services

  • i have tried the last version, but i have the same problem

  • i think the problem is that i can't make the right modify at the right header.php file.

     

  • This is just to clear the confusion,

    @Nudeler2

    I can understand your fear of your data and credentials being collected (Its the same for me when I install a chrome/firefox extension). 

    We don't collect any of your DB credentials. The settings.php file is read only to copy the DB credentials from your settings.php file to the arg.php file. This is just to make the installation process easier.

    You can check the code for yourself in ~/freichat/installation/params.php . There is a function named elgg_conf(). you can see what it does exactly with your DB credentials.

    It is the same when Elgg asks you for your DB credentials during the installation. The thing that has to be remembered is that FreiChatX is a seperate program, so it must have its own copy of the DB credentials(in the arg.php file) just as Elgg has its own copy(in the settings.php file)

    This should clear any of your doubts/fears about FreiChatX. let us know if you have any other doubts/queries regarding this software.
