As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.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 modification adds another section to the "What's Going On" area.
It also has seperate pages to display (1) the list of guests, and (2) the pages a particular guest has visited

Options / Features ;

* The ability to turn the whole modification on/off.
* The ability to turn just the forumhome display on/off.
* The ability to allow (or prevent) certain usergroups viewing the forumhome display.
* The ability to switch between 'Today' and Rolling 24 Hours display (default).
* 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.
* The datastore read (for spider detection) will read from the File/APC/Xcache datastore if used [note, not Memcache].
* 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.
* The option to keep a record of [and display] the most ever guests.
* Usergroup permissions are done with the standard vbulleten usergroup permissions system.
* Clicking on the main display icon will list the recent visits by all guests (if allowed).
* Clicking on a Guest type in the main display will list all recent visits by guests of that type (again, if allowed).
* Clicking on the option in the guest listing will show that guests viewing data (if enabled, and allowed).
* The main display can be set as always collapsed on initial page load (4.0.3 +)

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 files.
  • If upgrading from a previous version, delete any old trg bitfield xml files from your ../includes/xml/ folder.
  • Upload the new bitfields file to 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.
The installation code will turn this on for you.

It is recommended that you visit your Who's Online page after installing this mod (or after updating your spiders file) to make sure your spider definitions are built / rebuilt.

I don't recall seeing it before either but it's there today - see attachment.

I tried searching for the phrase "logged in spiders' but it came up blank.

I checked, and what I said before isnt possible, you must sucessfully login to be classed in that group.

It looks to me like you have edited the logged in phrase. Doing that will not update existing records, those are people who logged in before you edited it.

You're right. I went back and reverted that phrase "translation" and that returned everything to normal.

Thanks.

You're welcome. It's called "pay it forward". Somebody else showed me that tip - just passing it along.

Just upgraded to 4.0.2 and installed latest version of this MOD. For some weird reason, the permissions weren't showing up in usergroup manager so I uninstalled the MOD (losing my guest data in the process ) then reinstalled and it worked.

At least it kept my "most guests" record. Great job Paul.

You just create a translated phrase like you would for any other phrase.
