Adding CometChat to an SMF Theme

A family member uses CometChat on a Simple Machines Forum (SMF) forum to allow members of the forum to chat with one another online when they are visiting the forum. I installed a couple of Halloween themes for the forum, but she found that CometChat was not available with the new themes, though it was available with the default theme.

Checking changes that had been made quite to that theme's files when I installed CometChat on the forum a few years ago, I found that the installation process for CometChat had modified the index.template.php file for the default theme, which was stored in the Themes/default directory for the forum.

I found the following PHP code in that file:

echo '<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"', $context['right_to_left'] ? ' dir="rtl"' : '', '>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=', $context['character_set'], '" />
<link type="text/css" href="/cometchat/cometchatcss.php" rel="stylesheet" charset="utf-8"> >script type="text/javascript" src="/cometchat/cometchatjs.php" charset="utf-8"></script>

Since the CometChat additions to the file occurred immediately after the head tag, to make CometChat available in the new theme, I added the following immediately after <head> in the Themes/Halloween/index.template.php file under the forum's directory on the server for the forum:

<link type="text/css" href="/cometchat/cometchatcss.php" rel="stylesheet" charset="utf-8"> <script type="text/javascript" src="/cometchat/cometchatjs.php" charset="utf-8"></script>

She was then able to log into the forum and change the default theme to the Halloween theme with CometChat now being available with that theme. I made a similar change to othere themes she wanted to use for the forum by updating the index.template.php file in the appropriate theme directory.

Note: If you see '; immediately after <head>, you need to put the code for CometChat between the <head> and the ';.

Check a Domain's Reputation

There are a number of companies that provide a means of checking a domain's reputation. E.g., perhaps you may wish to determine if a particular domain name is associated with the transmission of spam or want to know whether it is safe to visit a particular website. Often antispam and antivirus vendors will allow you to lookup an IP address or fully qualified domain name (FQDN) , e.g. somesite.example.com to make that determination through a website they provide.
