Not Supported  

This one is a pretty easy hack to install. It shows any spiders that are indexing your site in the what's going on box on the forum home page. Please note. It will only show spiders as spiders and not as guests if it also shows them as spiders and not as guests on online.php.

This hack has been tested on 3.0.6 and 3.0.7.

It's not hard to install, but it does have one drawback. If you have a portal page that shows online users, you will have to edit it yourself to incorporate the changes. Consider yourself warned.

At this point, any problems reported are installation errors. If things don't work for you, make sure you have completed all the steps as written.

As I have upgraded to 3.5, I am withdrawing support for this older version. All the bugs are gone and any issues are now installation errors.

FAQ
1. I get this: [ARG:3 UNDEFINED] spiders on my portal page.
As noted above, because of the large number of portals, you're on your own for integrating them into thie hack.

2. I get this: [ARG:3 UNDEFINED] spiders on other pages.
1. Make sure you have done all of the code changes correctly.
2. Make sure you have updated your style to use the modified templates. If not, that error will occor.

Without seeing your site, I can't see what might be going on. The url you have listed in your profile comes up as not found.

Ah. You have the problem on your index page. You are missing the template edit on the FORUMHOME template. I can't see your online.php page because that's disabled for guests.

Im not sure if you do, but if you have a portal you will need to make the same changes for the templates used for whatever module you have it showing. I believe the template is adv_portal_onlineusers.

Oh, and thanks for the great enhancement, Amy.

Quick question, shouldnt MSNbot showup as a spider?

Your online.php edit refers to numspiders .. changing each instance of that to numberspiders is what makes the online work.

Actually, I just had the template edit wrong in the directions. Change that to use numspiders instead of numberspiders. I fixed the text file.

Taking things a step further. If you want guest or guests(12), etc. to show on your list as well,

In index.php 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.
