USER ACTIVITY LOGGING.

Description:
This Mod will (eventually) allow you to track a users activity from any script within vB or its addons ... well at least those that make use of the Hook features.

Background:
I have seen various requests around for some form of user logging but never been able to find an actual Mod. As we had a need for this on our site I decided to write my own.
I have been working with vB for a couple of years now (and a php coder for a lot more) and made use of a number of other coders Mods, both as they had been released or customized to suit our own purposes. Although not a very active poster here at vBorg, it is one of my regular visits.

Installation:
Standard Product Import using the AdminCP.
No template changes.
Optional (for AdminCP Log Viewer):
- Upload contents of zip file

Upgrade:
Will be as above, but select 'Overwrite'

Features:
Database and/or Thread notification of activity
Selectable Forum for Thread notification
Selectable posting User for Thread notification
On/Off for each logging area
AdminCP Log Viewer/Pruner
Additional thread option for logging all Log-ins and outs

Current Logging Areas:
showthread - logs when a user views a thread (this is currently the only one I am using and I am actually happy with)
forumdisplay - logs when a user views the forumdisplay script
search - logs when a user makes a search
editpost - logs when a user edits a post
log-ins/log-outs - logs successful and unsuccessful log-ins and log-outs
profile views - logs when a user views the 'member profile' page

ChangeLog:
v1.0.6 (28 Nov,2007) - incorporated IPAddress tracking as provided by dartho (thanks )
v1.0.5 (16 May,2007) - added profile viewing both for 'logged users' and 'all user to a separate thread'. No admincp file update required. NB: Check options after upgrading.
v1.0.4 (07 May,2007) - added log-in/out logging both for 'logged users' and 'all user to a separate thread'. No admincp file update required.
v1.0.3 (27 April, 2007) - Corrected 1 thread per logged user issue, added 'editpost' logging area
v1.0.2 (25 April, 2007) - Check for deleted thread & added AdminCP Log Viewer
v1.0.1 (24 April, 2007) - Error in XML
v1.0.0 (24 April, 2007) - Initial release

Future Enhancements?:
Additional logging areas (just ask and I'll look in to it)
Viewable log transcripts taken from database entries - completed
Usergroup logging

Thanks To:
All those other coders whose Mods I have installed and learned from

Note: This is the first Mod I have actually released here (or anywhere), so please go easy on me
Hopefully I have the Product URL and Version Checking URL links right.

Sorry. My mistake when adding the URLs to the XML instead of in the ACP itself.
Fixed and re-uploaded.

This looks quite nice! Is there any way to log in attempts or url access as well? In other words, if a guest is attempting to log in as an existing user (say admin) then this is logged along with IP address, user name, and password attempt...
This is also good for those users who try to access staff areas or areas restricted from them.
This would be FANTASTIC if this could be added as I know SMF boards already have this in place and can be viewed, and deleted from adminCP area.
Sorry but this mod looks close to what I have been hoping for.

So in essence you would like to log error messages not specific to a particular user?

Yes, that would be nice to also log guest attempts as well as user attempts. Maybe by user group?

Great potential this mod is I'll wait till it's out of beta stage and tweaked as mentioned above. Yes logging in the users trying to log into another member is a nice feature to have. I assume there is a way to clear this log as well?

Short answer is yes, but you would need to modify the core vB code to add some extra Hook locations.

Basically with this hack you can log any script at any point where there exists a Hook. No hook - no log. But there is nothing preventing us adding our own Hook locations (except ease of upgrades )

PM me if you would be interested in discussing having me do this for you.

Currently the database side is simply to start logging entires. Nothing so far is done with the data and you can turn off database logging if you wish.

My plan is to provide an ACP interface similar to the Moderator Logging already included (which is where I got the basic code idea from)
