Seeing your excelent plugin, thank you to you for sharing him, I had an idea.

Many users use Vanilla Forums to talk about video game it would be possible to make this plugin with Twitch TV http://www.twitch.tv/ instead of vchat.

This type of plugin does not exist for Vanilla Forums but there is for Word Press :

    thanks! yes you can just replace the tiny chat with another embed for anything or even add it in the same page. You would add it in the vchat.php .

  • But for have integration in dashboard its one bit more difficult.

    I am not sure how that works but I assume you can enable it in wordpress and embed it anywhere else, I notice that it uses shortcodes as many things do now , that would likely be the biggest issue think because if it relies on shortcodes you would need a plugin for that. In order to incorporate it to vanilla .

    I would have to see what it does and how to give a good opinion. But the chat page is just a page that you can add content to in this case I added a chat room. The chatroom settings are controlled from tiny chat , I would assume if you use that plugin in wordpress that you can embed the chat anywhere else.

    Thank you @plumwd , That would be awesome !!

  • It will take me a little while since I've never worked with Vanilla Forums before. I'll grab a download and whip something up this weekend.

    I work with WordPress myself and I can tell you that, once you will get used to Vanilla (which means immediately) you will start hating "captain hook". :)

    Hi there, I am the plugin author. I've never created a Vanilla Forums plugin, but I'd be more than happy to convert this one for use in Vanilla forums.

    Any updates?

    she can be found here http://profiles.wordpress.org/plumwd/ and at here website you might get a better response.

    considering she never logged back into vanilla here.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

  • @hgtonight Has there been any updates to the community streams plug in? It's not working for me (no streams page but users can add their streams to their profiles). Would be awesome if you've got some news, advice or could direct me to another twitch plugin!

    I never released it here because it was never really finished. The community I was developing it for has kind of dried up.

    I am not even sure what features would be good to add to it, as I barely streamed.

  • Thats a real shame. I'm working on a gaming community now and it would have been perfect allowing users to link their channels and then have a communal page to view all the streams if they were live.

    Oh well, thanks for answering! :)

    You can do that, what you can't do is integrate it with vanilla as far as the moderation and settings for the channels or the community channel , but you can easily embed this kind of thing on a page or even on the main discussions page.

    I will put this on my list of addons to revisit. It is licensed under GPL so you could fork it, modify it, or contribute to it.

    I just released the Live Stream Page plugin that adds a simple page with a Twitch video embed and chat embed for one channel along with a couple more features. If you want to display an official live stream on your Vanilla Forums, this plugin is for you. :)

    If you want to display multiple channels, I recommend checking out and contributing to hgtonight's Community Streams plugin mentioned in this discussion.
