Group Statistics in Categories Listing
This mod adds 10 features to social groups.

The categories listing page is probably the most bland VB page, only showing the category name and # of groups. This mod will make that page much more interesting and visited by adding statistics per category and overall. You can specify how many groups will be shown in each category. This mod is fully phrased. 10 features are added:
  • Show statistics for newest groups (last created).
  • Show statistics for active groups (last updated).
  • Show statistics for popular groups (most members).
  • Show statistics for photogenic groups (most pics).
  • Show statistics for talkative groups (most messages).
  • Show statistics for talkative groups (most discussions).
  • Show group icon next to unread groups. You can also specify to never show, always show, or alternate show the group icon.
  • Group search input field provided for convenient searching.
  • Show the overall group statistics in forumhome at 3 different places.
  • Show the overall group statistics in VBA blocks; links will work for both VBA installed inside and outside forum directory.
Important Notes:
  • The group statistics in VBA blocks will not show statistics for most discussions to allow cleaner presentation in 3-columns layout.
  • 2-3 queries are required for the group statistics (3 if you enable marking unread groups with icons). If you installed version 1.0, the 2 manual edits are no longer required in version 1.1 in order to achieve 2-3 queries total.
  • This mod requires VB 3.8+ and MySql 4.1+.
  • Upload the files to their respective folders in your forum directory.
  • Import the product at Manage Products page and allow overwrite.
  • Go to VB Options > Categories’ Group Statistics to set your settings.
  • Optional: to display the tag cloud in vbAdvanced, go to VBA CMPS > Download / Upload Modules > in “Module to Upload”, select ‘groupstats_vba.xml’ (in the zip file), and click ‘Submit’. Then go to VBA CMPS > Default Settings > Main Options > add to “Portal Output Global Variables”:
Version History:
1.0.0 - Initial Release.

1.1.0 - upgraded mod to not require file edits to reduce queries.

Updated: version 1.1.0 was just released. New feature: 2-3 queries total with no file editing required. You do not need to reinstall the VBA module if you’re using it. It is recommended that you install this update.

No doubt, this one on 4.0 is very much needed.

tried to install on vb 3.85 and got a database error, plugin removed? Sounds like a nice mod if it would work.

Anyone install on vb 3.85?
