Websites who have referred today (in the last 24 hours)


Description:
Lists all websites who have sent you visitors in the last day.

Each time a person arrives at your forum by clicking on a link from another website, the website URL they arrived from is listed on the index page of your forum in the same manner as members who are logged in. Screenshots at the foot of this post.


Options: (AdminCP > vBulletin Options > Websites who have referred today)
Turn it on or off
Mod goes on, mod goes off. Mod goes on, mod goes off.

Enable display for UsergroupIDs
Enter the IDs of the usergroups you wish to be able to view referring links, separated by commas (,). (i.e 1,2,3). Leave blank to display referring links to everyone.

Enable referrer page title? (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/attac...0&d=1170326535)
Choose Yes to store the page title of the referrer, which will be used as the link text. If this is not enabled or not available, a trimmed version of the URL will be used.

This may incur a slight penalty on page-load time when a visitor first arrives from a referrer or possibly be problematic where referring pages time out or redirect.

Trim URL variables?
Choose Yes to remove variables from the end of URLs to shrink listing repeats. (i.e. Set to No, every different search from Google will add a new www.google.com referral to the listings. Set to yes, all will be compressed into one listing but the search terms will be lost.)

Blockword List:
Enter character strings to be prevented from being added to the URL database, separated by commas (,). You may use any part of domains (www.xxx or xxx or www.xxx.com or .com).

Highlight arrivals from a referrid link?
Choose Yes to highlight in italics referrers using a forum member's referral link.

For this to work, you must have "Trim URL variables" to No.

Highlight domain list
Enter domains to be highlighted using the markup belowe, separated by commas (,). You must use the format domain.ext, exclude the http://(www.) part. (i.e. redtyger.co.uk)

Opening tag for highlighted domain markup
Enter HTML and/or text that will be placed before the domain name.

Closing tag for highlighted domain markup
Enter HTML and/or text that will be placed after the domain name.


Additional Features:
AJAX inline moderation (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/attac...2&d=1170095586)
Click on the X next to any domain to remove it from the database. No page loads, no waiting.

Scheduled Task (Cron)
All domains are cleared at midnight daily. You can edit the Scheduled task to have the database cleared when and as often as you like. All scheduled clearances are logged and phrased. Like any other vBulletin Scheduled task you must have activity or the scheduled task will not run.

Manual database clearance
As well as removing any individual domain, you can clear the referral database at any time using a link from the index page.

Queries:
This modification adds one very small query for every arrival from an external link. One additional larger query is used on the index page to construct the list.


Installation Instructions:
1. Go to AdminCP > Plugins & Products > Manage Products > Add/Import Product.
2. Upload the websites_who_have_referred_today.xml file.
3. Upload the wwhrt.php file to the includes/cron folder of your forum directory.
4. Open AdminCP > Styles & Templates > (Your Theme) Edit Templates > Forumhome templates > FORUMHOME.
5. FIND:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


BELOW, ADD:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


And save the template. Done!

Changelog

v1.1 Added AJAX inline moderation (Yay!) and ability to clear the list via a link on the index page without waiting from the Scheduled Task to do it. Admins only may do either task.
v1.1 Changed the screenshot to show the inline deletion links.
v1.1 Fixed incorrect cron timing (Scheduled Task) and phrased it.
v1.1 Fixed issue with domains that sometimes had www. and sometimes did not. This also now shortens any URL which I was meaning to do anyway, so www.google.com will appear in the list as google.com. Smartens things up and gives a bit more room too.
v1.1 Changed URL encoding to avoid problems with domains that contained hypens.
v1.1 Fixed blockwords not working. They are still only checked when a domain is first added, but inline moderation means you can now take care of it yourself afterwards if necessary..
v1.1 Minor optimisations.

v1.5 Added Archive referral recording.
v1.5 Added Usergroup display controls.
v1.5 Added option to record and use referring page title as link text instead of trimmed domain. (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/attac...0&d=1170326535)
v1.5 Added option to highlight referrals that have arrived from a forum member's referral link.
v1.5 Added option to highlight with custom markup any domains of your choice.
v1.5 Fixed workaround for apparent PHP bug where a letter would occasionally be removed from the beginning of URLs
v1.5 Fixed issue with multiple blockwords, I swear to God it's fixed this time. Probably.
v1.5 Fixed issue with AJAX inline moderation only deleting the last URL in the list.
v1.5 Changed minor optimisations.

v1.51 Fixed bug where multiple versions of the same forum URL were used for access.

v1.6 Added option to limit number of recent URLs displayed
v1.6 Added option to trim referrer additions to the domain name only to further limit repeat listings
v1.6 Added URL sorting, referrers are now listed in reverse order (last addition first)
v1.6 Fixed catch for https and ftp URLS.
v1.6 Fixed bug where a w would be trimmed off the beginning of URLS.
v1.6 Fixed blockwords not working (Oh please, oh please, oh please)
v1.6 Minor optimisations

v1.61 Added compatiblity with vBulletin 3.5.x
v1.61 Probably fix to possible referrer text exploit.

v1.62 Added securing of HTML tags as a security measure.

I'm having a small issue with this program. It seems that it's adding my own website as a referrer every time someone navigates the forum, for example domain.com/forum/online.php, /forum/logout.php, etc... I have added my own URL to the blacklist with no resolution.

Also, turning off the search strings creates a referral of "Array".

Any reasons this could be happening?

Change this line in the template modification:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


to this

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


Change 1,2,3 to whatever usergroups you want to allow to see the list.




Your forum is down but I have a suspicion it's because I forgot to account for URLs with hypens. Might be a setting issue though, can you tell me exactly what you have entered in AdminCP > vBulletin Options> Site URL > Forum URL.

Blocked words work by blocking entries from being made in the first place, NOT from them being added if they're already there. So once the domain containing the keywords is removed, it won't be added again but it will continue to count up until then. This was done to keep the recording of referrers very quick. I'm looking to add an inline-delete for the next version to make this more usable.

Okay thanks for the above, however is there a way to show this on a seperate page instead of down there, so that way not only can I set which usergroups can see it, but I can also put it in a location where I wont have to see it all the time.

Thanks.

You will have to edit the plugin to do that.

Glad people like it.

But there's a couple of problems at the moment, I have removed the zip so people don't install something they'll only have to replace 5 minutes later. Subscribe to this thread if anyone is interested, I'll be releasing a fixed version ASAP. Sorry everyone.

I am going to remove the permissions from this so that you can see what I'm talking about. Please visit my homepage again to see the 143 different referrals that are my site.
