I wanted some quick way to see who was linking to my forum so I created this product to show me the last xxx referring urls on the forum home page. I figured I'd share in case others found it useful.

Installation is simple, upload the xml as a product, go to the settings and configure it how you like.

Let me know if it works ok, it's my first time packaging up a product.

History:
1.0 - Initial Release
1.1 - Fixed a hard coded table prefix
2.0 - Added referred pages section, full referrer list and more options
2.1 - Fixed a template bug

Installation Instructions
  1. Remove any previously installed version
  2. Upload referrers.php to your forum root
  3. Import the product XML

Database error in vBulletin 4.0.0:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

not sure what happened there.

Trek 06 Jan 2010 02:30

I like this, pretty slick. Using the anonymizer as well is cool. Tagged until I go live with vB4.

Zaiaku 06 Jan 2010 02:31

OK I would really like to have this on a seperate page.

Agreed,like a link from admincp would be optimal.

Sushubh 06 Jan 2010 02:51

Boots 06 Jan 2010 02:59

This Product is showing in my ACP but nothing In WGO? Permissions for Admin usergroup 6 are set.

ETA Installed on 4 separate forums on 4 separate servers Nothing showing in WGO on any of them. But the menu does show in all the ACP's

2nd Edit I take that back apperantly you have to wait for a referal b4 the block shows. Seems to be working fine. Thnks for a very useful hack good stuff. Installed and rated.

Same

Sushubh 06 Jan 2010 04:10

works now.

suggestion:
for search engines optional... show search engine name and query as well...

question:
on my forum it seems to show the most popular referrers not the latest one!

It's sorted by most popular referrer. I'm adding an option to change that. I'm also adding a section to show the most popular pages being referred to.

kersti 06 Jan 2010 11:24

Would love this to link from the What's New tab - is that possible?

Sushubh 06 Jan 2010 11:44

cool thanks. i like this add-on.

You can now sort by popularity or last visit.

Sushubh 11 Jan 2010 11:11

The blank page indicates a permission problem. Do you have usergroups set properly for "Full View - Usergroups Access" ?

Sushubh 11 Jan 2010 12:27

ok. i am the admin and i have permission to watch that page.

the page shows

{vb:phrase bhr_title

in the header and nothing after that...

Boots 11 Jan 2010 13:53

Is it working for anyone else?

SpongeBob71 11 Jan 2010 19:07

Not working for me....same issue as Susubh



Sorry.

Boots 11 Jan 2010 22:49

Ok, I'll take a closer look at it :)

Verionia 17 Jan 2010 00:31

will download once problems are fixed ;)

cooltechie 17 Jan 2010 15:42

Would like to try this out when problem is fixed. Tagged.

Boots 17 Jan 2010 17:01

I know what the problem is, I screwed up exporting a template. I've been super busy with work but I'm going to try and get a fixed up version posted later today.

Penguin82 17 Jan 2010 21:24

Great Mod! Was much needed!

Installed =]

gbechtel 18 Jan 2010 13:18

Search for in templates and change 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.

and that will fix the title issue, but still nothing showing on the page.

I'm at work right now but I fixed up a dated template in the product. If someone could test this and let me know if it fixed the problem I'll update the modification.

Thanks!

Boots 18 Jan 2010 14:26

and sorry for the slow action on this.. busy, busy :D

i got this sql related error when i tried re-importing the xml file. should i delete this table from the database manually?

Boots 18 Jan 2010 14:38

Actually, if you uninstall the product first it should take care of that. I'll make the installer a bit smarter in the next release.

Sushubh 18 Jan 2010 14:41

alright. i would try uninstalling and installing it now :)

Boots 18 Jan 2010 15:05

Let me know if it fixes the problem :)

Sushubh 18 Jan 2010 15:17

http://broadbandforum.in/referrers.php seems to work now.

Boots 18 Jan 2010 15:24

Excellent. I'll update the modification. Thanks for testing!

gbechtel 18 Jan 2010 19:24

Still a no data on the "referrers.php" page on my end, it shows the referrers on forum.php but clicking on the link brings up the referrers.php page with no data

Sushubh 18 Jan 2010 21:21

the default permissions should enable that page for mods, supermods and admins... have you got different usergroup numbers for your own usergroup?

chingon 18 Jan 2010 21:41

Thank you, works like a charm now.

Verify the usergroup settings.

Boots 22 Jan 2010 17:42

This appears to be working fine so I'm going to take it out of beta.

venom2124 25 Jan 2010 04:36

I have verified the settings and I can see the listing on the forumhome page but clicking on the
"Full referrer list..." displays an empty page... see attached

Boots 26 Jan 2010 12:01

gbechtel, can you PM me a screen shot of your admincp settings for the plugin?

Ill just post it here (top, middle and bottom) couldn't get it on one screen shot.

goran424 28 Jul 2010 18:31

Installed, waiting for it to show on forum home page.

Dragonsys 29 Jul 2010 17:05

How do I disable the information in WGO?

EDIT: Ok I can just set Referrers - Usergroups Access & Referred Pages - Usergroups Access to blank.
Can we get a NavBar link for this? maybe under Quick Links.

KURTZ 29 Jul 2010 21:01

just tagged, i'll check later :)

SuperTaz 09 Aug 2010 02:33

Very nice. Thank you.

KevinL 08 Dec 2010 18:37

Is anyone having an issue with this not showing for FireFox?

OldSchoolDSL 24 Dec 2010 07:39

Installed on 4.1 PL2

Not sure if its working or not. Do not see anything new added on my forum page.

EDIT: If someone else other then me would click the link here:

http://www.sociallyuncensored.com/forums/forum.php

I would know if this is working.

OldSchoolDSL 24 Dec 2010 18:25

It works, but I ran into a small problem. I made the "mistake" of clicking the following http://www.sociallyuncensored.com/fo..._collapsed.png to collapse it out of view.... Which it did. But sadly, once click they became un-click-able, so now I can not un-collapse it. :(

AURFSCAN 25 Dec 2010 05:57

Does work, had to edit: plugin - build template, and change

pos2


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

to pos5 to put it at the bottom of whats 'going on'


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

and then remove this at the end


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


but its still not lined up and looks pretty ugly but can be sorted and it does work.

tagged, testing and modifying when Im bored and have nothing else todo :)

OldSchoolDSL 30 Dec 2010 04:48

Uninstalled.

Caused a conflict with a few things.

Britmovie 30 Dec 2010 15:48

Hi this is by far the best one but can it be made so it has its own page and doesnt clutter the front page?

smirkley 31 Dec 2010 07:05

Needs some fine tuning, some polishing,...

But I like it.

sportsfroma2 18 Jul 2011 05:29

This was a great mod and worked well, but I just upgraded my site from 4.0.7 to 4.1.4 and it no longer displayed correctly...

Would love to install it again if it's updated, but in the meantime looks like I will have to try another one.

inspector 22 Sep 2011 12:51

Just installed and it goofed my forum up. I'm in admin cp and nothing works now. Every thing I click in the cp goes to data base error.

inspector 22 Sep 2011 13:03

Please advise how to fix this problem if I can't see the plugin manager to uninstall. Every single thing in the CP left column goes to "database error" when I click on it. I can't see anything in options and can't even turn the forum off while it's goofed up.

Boots 22 Sep 2011 14:28

Sorry guys, no longer maintaining this.

@inspector Disable the plugin system and uninstall the plugin

inspector 23 Sep 2011 02:11

Someone needs to edit the first post to inform people this thing will F your board up!

inspector 25 Sep 2011 21:43

Uninstalled. Had to have a ticket sent in to VBulletin team to fix my forum as this mod screwed everything up.
