This modification is not available for vBulletin 4.0.x or 4.1.x, only 4.2.x

Please remember to click Mark as Installed if you use this modification.

This modification is no longer officially supported.
It will remain available for download and use, but the thread is no longer monitored.

This modification adds the members who have visited display to the forum sideblocks.

As per the main modification, this cannot count guests, it is members only.

Note: This is untested on vBulletin 4.0.0, but I think it should be fine.

The main features are as follows ;

1. It displays in the Forum Sideblocks (Default Display Order = 1).
2. Invisible users are only displayed to those allowed to see them (with a "*")
3. Users who should display as coloured or bold etc will be displayed correctly (based on the display usergroup).
4. If you 'hover' over a username it will show the time they were last active.
5. An option to record and display the Most Ever Members can be enabled.
6. The switch between Visited Today and Rolling 24 Hours is an ACP option.
7. The list view is collapsable, so you just see the number .
8. The display can be set as always collapsed on initial page load (however, this can have odd results as the display is cached).

(Options are in vBulletin Options > Who Has Visited Today Block)

Please note this sideblock uses the block cache system, so it will always be slightly behind realtime in its display - the cache ttl is set to 5 minutes.

To install just unzip the XML and import into vB using the ACP Product Manager.

How can I move this block so that it is above the New Forum Posts block?

Sweet installer..

Can we re-use it, atleast until vb makes it possible to export/import
forum blocks along with a product. ?

SLY LS1 11 Feb 2010 11:23

can you make it as a widget for the CMS?

Yes, you can, as long as you credit the orignal author in your code (i.e. me ...).

Updated this, and I'm now in VB4.0.2, and the expand link has stopped working, just takes you to the top of the page?

Any ideas? :)
