vB Version: 3.6.5 Rating: (12 votes - 4.50 average) Installs: 133
Released: 24 Mar 2007 Last Update: 11 Apr 2007 Downloads: 976
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files Is in Beta Stage  


Note: This product is now being supported at www.catnine.net

Keywords: Statistics, New members, joins, trends, Forum Home, threads, posts

ATTENTION:
If you download the latest version go into your usergroups and set the 'can view trends' permission. SAVE the usergroup even if you haven't changed the setting or things may not work. There is an odd permissions bug I haven't figured out yet.

Also note that overwrite will not work. Please uninstall the previous version before installing the new one.

Description:
Enhances the "YourBBS" Statistics box on the forum home to show trends of posts, threads and new users vs. the overall history of the board. Also allows you to display more than one "newest member".

Version 2.0.0:
  1. Calculations exposed and modifiable in admincp.
  2. Added ability to delay updates of stats to every x minutes in admincp.
  3. Added a style setting for positive and negative trends.
  4. Added custom hooks for all aspects of vbTrends, and moved code into said hooks.
  5. Changed template to still show total threads when trend is negative and 'positive trends only' is enabled.
  6. Usergroup permission to view trends.
Note: You cannot cause an error by messing up the calculations in the admincp. If the calculation you provide contains errors the stat in question will show as N/A.

This is a major rewrite, so I've set the hack to beta for now.

Version 1.2.6:
  1. Made some minor tweaks for cleaner code
  2. Made change to build datastore call to force serialization
You can just overwrite the product.xml if you are upgrading. Remember vbTrends has an option in the admincp to reset the counters. To see any changes/fixes you'll want to run that, or you'll end up having to wait for a new day before the changes will take affect.

Version 1.2.5:
  1. fixed minor bug in auto-replace that was causing it not to work on some boards
Version 1.2.4:
  1. fixed bug in percentage of active users
  2. fixed bug in limit of queries (added order by)
Thanks to bchertov and Battle_Ring for the testing

Version 1.2.3:
  1. Added option to display % of active users.
  2. Added option to set the number of previous months to include in the trend data.
Version 1.1.3:
  1. Updated for vBulletin 3.6.
  2. Fixed long standing problem with stats calculating incorrectly.
  3. Added option to only show positive trends.
Version 1.1.2:
  1. Added admincp menu to reset cached counters.
  2. Fixed a couple of divide by zero errors that occurred when your board had no history (was less than a month old).
  3. Fixed so templates are now cached.
Version 1.1.1:
  1. Fixed calculation of statistics - should definately be correct now
Version 1.1.0:
  1. Fully phrased.
  2. Uses templates now so look and feel can be customized
  3. Fixed bug so output is valid xhtml 1.0.
Version 1.0.0:
  1. Turn on/off in admincp
  2. Offers the option to auto replace in templates, or to manually edit templates.
  3. Allows more than one 'newest user' to be display.
  4. Shows trends for posts, threads and new users - this month vs. the boards average.

Just corrected a minor logic glitch that made the 'positive' only work in reverse. No need to reinstall unless you want to - just remember if you don't the yes/no is reversed.

You can't show stats without running a few queries. Nothing to be done for it other than what I already do to minimize the queries. Do you know it is an issue on your site, or are you just assuming?
