I hope I'm not stepping on any toes, cause I really do love this mod.

I just tested V2 on 3.6.4 to see if it would work and get the following error when trying to view search stats in admincp. (I know, i'm too lazy to do the full 3.6.7 update and settled for just the security patches)


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

I used the same fix on V2 that I did on V1 to solve the problem
in search_stats.php
Replace this:

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

With this:

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

Also the "Most searched keywords" block on forum home still shows to usergroups that don't have permissions to see it.

The actual search terms don't show up (just the word "None") but the block itself still shows. I would think the entire section should not show if they don't have viewing permissions. It doesn't make sense to show a 'search stats' box with nothing in it.

So I changed the FORUMHOME template edit from this:

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.

Thanks for the great mod!!!

Does the list of most searched for terms have to go in the "what's going on box"? I think that is the most illogical place to put it.

I guess it's possible.

I just remembered that I had the same problem with V1 and that was the fix which also happened to work on v2

I guess it's possible I have something else in there that is conflicting with it (although i can't imagine what it could be since search_stats.php is a stand alone admincp script and I have no mods that alter the search in any way.

But who knows, when you start modding stuff you run into all kinds of potential for conflicts. I just figured I would post up the fix just in case someone else experienced a similar problem.

Again, thank you for a great mod.

Suggestion for Most searched keywords

Just a thought, but it occurred to me that every time a user clicks on one of the "most searched" keywords on forum home it is actually increasing the count for the # of times that term/phrase was searched for, thereby falsely inflating the true number of searches people did on the term.

Since people are likely to click on them because...they can....it would seem those "most searched" words would be inflated and always remain showing in the top 20 most searched.

Maybe append a new parameter to the end of the link to each of those search terms something like (searchstats=donotcount for example). Where if that parameter is passed when clicking on the link, the searchstats plugin knows not to add to the count for that word/phrase. This way the only words counted in the search stats are terms people actually searched for on their own.

Anyway, just an idea. That was a change on made on mine.

Yeah. I think it should go on the search page (both advanced search and search results) myself. The "What's Going On is already overcluttered that it will be ignored by most users and you don't need this information shown unless someone is looking to search.

This is a really good hack for me. And putting it at what's going is is equally good. VbAdvanced module would put more value to it though.
Thank you!
