This tracks the number of guests that have visited a forum each day. This isn't possible in stock vbulletin as no record is kept of guest visits, they are a 'realtime' display only. This will add (another) section to the "What's Going On" area.

Options / Features ;

* The ability to turn it on/off.
* The ability to turn just the display on/off.
* The ability to allow (or prevent) certain usergroups viewing the display.
* The ability to run the display code on all pages (not just forumhome).
* The ability to switch between 'Today' and Rolling 24 Hours display (default).
* The list of guests can be set to be always collapsed on initial view.
* The script that the Guest is running is logged (e.g. showthread, usercp etc).
* The request variables in use are logged (e.g. threadid, userid etc).
* The guest table can be cleaned of old records to help control it's size.
* Controls for the displays automatic template update.
* The datastore read (for spider detection) will read from the File/APC/Memcache/Xcache datastore [if used].
* Guest Views data collection - tracking each guests viewing of the forum index page, forums and threads.
* Guest Views data collection can be separately disabled.
* Multiple guest visits to the same page are logged separately.
* Clicking on a Guest type in the main display will list all recent visits by guests of that type.
* Clicking on the option in the guest listing will show that guests viewing data (if enabled).
* Usergroup permissions are done with the standard vbulleten usergroup permissions system.
* The option to keep a record of [and display] the most ever guests can be enabled.

Four new usergroup permissions are provided in the usergroup manager.

* Can View the Guests Visited Display - Members can view the guests visited display on Forumhome.
* Can View Guest IP Addresses - Members can see the ip addresses of visiting guests.
* Can View Guest Visits List - Members can view the list of guest visits page.
* Can View Guest Tracking Data - Members can view the individual guest visit tracking page.

* All (non usergroup) modification settings are in vBulletin Options > Guest Tracking.

To install (or upgrade);
  • Unzip the XML files.
  • Upload the bitfields file to your ../includes/xml folder.
  • If upgrading from a previous version, delete the old bitfield xml file from your ../includes/xml folder.
  • Import the product into vBulletin using the ACP Product Manager.
  • Set your required permissions in the usergroup manager.
Note that by default no usergroup permissions are given, you must set them.


Note: For Spider detection to work you must set Enable Spider Display to 'Yes' in vBulletin Options > Who's Online Options.

Template Hook

Please note that this modification uses the following template hook in the FORUMHOME template ;

forumhome_wgo_pos2

Is this addon very server intensive when used on high traffic boards?
I recently had to uninstall 'Who's online spider display' due to some mega-queries.

I moved to a different host and re-installed Guest Tracking. It was working fine one min. and when I refreshed the screen it was gone! Any ideas? No settings have been changed.

OK, Now this is really strange. I am the only administrator on my site and the Mod does not have permission to change the settings, BUT in the Usergroup Manager ALL settings were set to NO!! How in the world would or could they change by themselves????

I have created a vba module that combines the information from this plugin and Paul's Members Who Have Visited Today plugin. The only problem is that I'm not a programmer and I couldn't find a way around just incorporating a chunk of Paul's code into the php file for the vba module.

If anyone knows how to pull out the $gueststoday variable by using code similar to this that was used in the vba php file for the Members Today module, I could revise my php to just pull the information vs regenerating it and release the vba module.

Paul if you have any suggestions, I'm open to that as well.

Thank you for your plugin! Now my users will see how many hundreds of guests are reading their posts.

This works off the forumhome_complete hook, not forumhome_start.

Thank you Paul!

So if I would change the hook location to forumhome_complete and then evaluate the template, would I have access to the $gueststoday variable?

I don't even know what's going on in that code, so you're ahead of me.

The template just uses the $gueststoday variable, so if changing that hook will allow the variables to pass to the template from your plugin, I think we'd be set.
