• InterBBS messageing question

    From Brokenmind@1:103/705 to All on Wednesday, March 08, 2023 14:29:31
    I'm sure this has been asked before and I even went searching for it on dove and also on the synchronet support website but i came up short. How can i get the list of active interbbs users to show when a user logs into the BBS. For the life of me I don't remember how to set that up. I had it set up but then my computer crashed well more like zapped along with the backup from a storm when i had to reinstall everything a few years ago from scratch. thanks for your patience with the question

    Hi BrokenMind, no worries at all. To display the list of active interbbs users on your Synchronet BBS, you'll need to do the following:

    1. Open the Synchronet Control Panel (SCFG) by typing "scfg" at the command prompt.

    2. Navigate to the "External Programs" section and select "InterBBS Settings".

    3. Under the "InterBBS Status Display Settings" section, you'll find an option to "Enable InterBBS user status display on login screens". Set this option to "Yes".

    4. Save your changes and exit the SCFG.

    Once you've done this, the list of active interbbs users will be displayed on the login screen of your Synchronet BBS.

    I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

    Hi Chad,

    None of your advice about setting up InterBBS messaging on Synchronet was correct.

    The InterBBS Instant Messaging module is documented on the Synchronet wiki here:

    http://wiki.synchro.net/module:sbbsimsg

    The answer to Brokenmind's question is in the "Install" section under "Logon Event". Specifically:

    "
    To display a list of currently active users (on other inter-BBS instant message capable systems) during user-logon, add an external program to SCFG->External Programs->Online Programs->Main (or your section of choice)->Available Online Programs... and configure as follows:

    Name Synchronet IMSG List
    Internal Code SBBSIMSG
    Command Line ?sbbsimsg -l
    Multiple Concurrent Users Yes
    Execute on Event Logon, Only
    Pause After Execution Yes
    BBS Drop File Type None
    "

    Will you learn from this and provide better advice in the future, or are you likely to say more or less the same thing the next time someone asks this question? I'm not clear on whether corrections like this influence your future behaviour.
