Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Translations  

As of 24 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.

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.


You can get an improved Spiders Definition file from this post.

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

This must be present in any customised template/style you are using, otherwise this modification will not display.

<body style="margin:1px">

This code crashed my fixed style. When i delete "margin:1px", it's OK. Why "margin:1px" ?

I have a version number 3.8.4

I have also vBSEO

To convert the links

When you install the product that you throw depends Forum

Forum works .. When you shut down one of the producers Track Guest Visits or vBSEO

There is a conflict between the two

I hope that you have a solution to this problem

Post Works!

Works fine...accept...how do you get the users names to show instead of a number?

Example: Visitors (9) ....I want the users names to show instead.

I want it to show the Users names that have already signed in and left.

How do I make it show the users names like I have seen on other forums?

Thanks for this mod! Can you help with with the above question?

When you refer to user names, do you refer to spider names? These are unregistered visitors. They don't have user names.

Question Spiders??

Hi there SamirDarji,

I did not mention anything about spiders, and everyone here knows that spiders do not have user names.

Do you know what a users is?

I'm looking for someone to help answer my question in my previous post.

A user is someone who is registered,
obviously a spider does not have a user name unless you let them register and they spam you to death.

Back to my original question......how do I show MY users names (REGISTERED) on :
"Total guests that have visited the forum in the last 24 hours"

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

vbulletin allows certain spiders that are recognized to be listed as such, hence a "user name." I'm fully aware of what a user name is. I don't think you're fully aware of what this modification does. It will not do what you want. This one by Paul will:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=196458

Speaking of this mod. Paul, how well do these two mods play together? Are there any issues?
