This is the vB3.7/vB3.8 version of this modification.

This hack adds an activity metric for users to your forum; this metric takes into account a variable number of weeks. Also provided is a Junior/Normal/Senior member system based on this metric, and a longevity metric (user registered time as a percent of the amount of time the first user has been registered).

Visiting each day and posting the configured amount of times per day for the configured number of weeks will yeild 100% activity. Posts are checked individually for each day, so days cannot be skipped then spammed up afterwards. The weight of visiting for the day relative to posting is configurable. Weeks are weighted so the most recent has a bigger impact on the activity percent than the most distant.

When a user logs in with activity above the configured threshold, they are promoted from Junior Member to Member. When they log in with the configured amount of time as Member, they are promoted to Senior Member. You can configure the mod to also add secondary usergroups when these promotions happen.

This modification requires 1 XML import, uploading of images, and the addition of some CSS, depending on what options you choose

This hack adds 1 query to showthread for each user who posts in that page (or only 1 for the logged in user by configuration). In addition, the first time a member's post or profile is accessed during a day (GMT), 3 queries are performed to find that user's activity. By configuration, 1 query may be added to each page load to find the logged in user's "activity today". By configuration, 1 query may be added to each member profile view to find that member's "activity today".

Frequently Asked Questions
  • I don't see the Activity Settings section or Activity Maintenance link on the AdminCP navbar
    You're probably seeing a cached (old) copy of the navbar. Try pressing Ctrl-F5 in IE or FF, or whatever your browser requires to force it to load the current version of the page.
  • I installed this mod and nothing shows up
    First, go to AdminCP|Activity Settings|Display and make sure the dropdown settings are not set to None. If they aren't set to none, the most likely cause is using an old style which does not have template hooks; verify this by creating a new style without a parent and checking to see if the mod displays on it (the images probably won't load, though). If the mod displays on the default style but not your normal one, you need to add template hooks, otherwise post here for help.
  • I installed this mod using the Download/Upload Plugin page and there was an error/it doesn't seem to work
    To install this mod, you need to use the Add/Import Product link on the Manage Products page
  • I just installed and everyone's activity seems low
    1. Part of the activity calculation is what days users visited on. This information isn't collected before the mod is installed, so no user can have 100% activity untill you've been running the mod for the full period of time you have it set to monitor
    2. Please realize that there is no "roll over" for activity; if you have it set to look at 4 posts per day, your users must post 4 posts on each individual day to obtain 100%.
  • I founded this forum, but I don't have 100% longevity
    Somehow a user's join date has been set before yours. When you install, the mod looks for the earliest join date to use to find longevity, but you can change the baseline date. To change the "Start of board" time, go to Maintenance>Activity Maintenance>Set Start of Board, enter your user number in the text field, then click Set Start of Board
  • Why don't the images don't show up?/Why does the postcount have 's's in front of it?
    Be sure to upload one of the activity directories from to the misc directory for each of your styles. To find a style's misc directory, goto the Style Manager, then from the dropdown next to the style, choose Stylevars. The setting Miscellaneous Images Folder contains the path to that style's misc directory, where you need to upload the activity directory
  • Can I use activity for promotions?
    The project to build a full-blown promotion hack for use with this mod has been cancelled, after losing all of my work, however a much simpler system that adds secondary groups based on two thresholds has been added to the main hack.
  • Can you make X number get split up into digits?
    I understand where you're coming from with this one, but I just can't figure out a way to work this that would be simple to use.
  • The tooltips don't wrap and get cut off with FireFox
    The same thing happens to other vB tooltips (the thumbnail ones, for example). If you know a way to add line breaks to FF tooltips without scripting, please let me know.

I already had this installed, but it was version 2.80. To upgrade, all I have to do is import the xml file? Do I select overwrite to yes or no? Also, I am using everything, but the posts with this hack. Not sure if that would matter or not. I just need some clarification on this for an upgrade.

Yes, just import with overwrite set to yes. You can change the display options in the AdminCP|vBulletin Options panel to disable duplicate/undesired visual elements.
