View Full Version : Does it exist a "where is the user" hack?

26 Jan 2001, 12:07
I've seen on a vB board that near the user nickname on the "Currently Active Users" section there's a "@" that shows the link of the page where the user is at the moment.
How can I enable this?

search for spy.php and modify that script to suit.

Thanks for your suggestion but I searched for both "spy.php" and "spy" with no succesfull results. :(

Euh... sorry it was my fault. I limited the search only to the Code Hacks section. :D
Thanks for the info!

no probs. it only came up with spy as opposed to spy.php

Er... it was not what I was looking for.
What I found on that (private) board was a Current Active like the following considering I'm the user and that I'm currently visiting this thread:

Cr4z33 (http://vbulletin.com/forum/member.php?action=getinfo&userid=1586) @ (http://vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?threadid=7249)

You see? The first URL takes you to my profile while the second one brings you to the thread I'm currently visiting. And this service is available for whatever usergroup.

i never said it did what you want but it has everything you need to adapt it to. it has all the sql calls to find out where people are at that moment (it is in the sessions table) so you would have to engineer it a bit to do that. Basically, no one has released a hack to do what you want but with a bit of tweaking of what is already there you could do it.

i do like the idea anyway so will probably try and create it for v2.0 when that comes out.
