Not Supported Template Edits  

Have you ever wanted to see whose threads get the most traffic? Well, this simple addition can make that happen.

Open SHOWTHREAD

Find

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add after:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

This is assuming that your Analytics code is in the header of your site

The report will be available in Google Analytics under Custom Variables.

Update 5/21/2012: 1.1 - changed added Google Analytics tag from memberaction_update to SHOWTHREAD so multi-page threads will be tracked. For example, if someone lands on page 3 of a thread, the author will still be tracked in Analytics.

I have some other custom things going on that use some of the same techniques.

Thanks for sharing this.

Since vB does not provide total views for a section, I have used
<vb:if condition="in_array($vbulletin->parentnode, array(5)) OR $vbulletin->nodeid == 5">

type conditions to add a Google custom code for that ("5" would be the id for the section).

vB does not provide the total number of views for each sub-forum, so it would be nice to add a sub-forum setCustomVar for GA also on SHOWTHREAD , but, unfortunately I have not been able to get the title for the sub-forum on the SHOWTHREAD template.
