vB Version: 4.2.x Rating: (79 votes - 4.87 average) Installs: 712
Released: 04 Jan 2010 Last Update: 24 May 2012 Downloads: 3856
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Translations  

As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.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 have a need for the List of Guests Visiting the Forum : Logged In data to be written to a file, and to have the file (will have a fixed name) updated each time the list is updated. How can this be done?

Working great for me in 4.1.12 and something I have been looking for. Is there anyway to make the mod open a new page when displaying the lists? That would make it easier than going back and forth when track a guests activity (and member activity on your similar mod).

Thanks

Great mod and working fine on 4.2.2PL1.

How can I change the WGO display so that 'Total guests that have visited the forum today' is below 'Total members that have visited the forum today'

Many thanks

As I recall, you need to fiddle with the execution order on the plugins.

Under "Visit Area", if an IP is visiting "register", does that mean that the IP is trying to access register.php or does it mean that somebody is actually clicking the register button? Where does the mod pull its info from?

It means they are accessing register.php, there are more details in the visit information column.

Thanks for the reply.
I'm using BOP's 'Rename register.php' plugin, so a normal person wouldn't even see register.php, but instead would see the newly named registration script. In addition to that, I also have a fake file called register.php which is nothing but an IP logger so I can catch any registration bots and ban their IPs. The reason I was asking is because I've logged a few IPs trying to visit register.php, but not nearly as many as are showing up in the visitor screen. I'm just trying to figure out how they are showing up as visiting 'register', but are not showing up anywhere else.

I hope that makes sense.

I'm not seeing where to go to actually see the guest table, what pages they went on, none of that. How do you actually use all the features? I only see the basic guest tracking settings in my admincp, but am not seeing a link anywhere else in the panel or on the site for the actual features and data.

It said it would create an extra section in the whats going on area and It also has seperate pages to display (1) the list of guests, and (2) the pages a particular guest has visited. I don't see that.

I'm also not seeing anything in the what's going on?

I looked around backwards and forwards and there's nothing having to do with guest stats besides default info. Those two tables in the screen shots I can not find.

I read the OP, but am clearly still having an issue. If anyone could help I would be appreciative.
