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

Description
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.

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

Technical
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".

Upgradability
This modification will import your settings and data from the 3.0/hack version
This modification will import your settings and data from the 3.5/3.6 mod version

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 activityimages.zip 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 just upgraded to vB 3.8.0 and now the Stats link in the navbar has a blue background for some reason.

Is it possible to fix this?

The stats template probably just doesn't match your navbar template. If you could attach your navbar template, I can try to figure out what needs to change.

Your navigation links aren't in your navbar template where they belong, apparently. You'll need to find them by using the search in templates feature to find the template containing

, then post it.

This means that for some reason, vB thinks you do not have the mod installed already when you do.

The attached file has the install code removed so you can upgrade from 2.8 to 3.03. This file is for update only and cannot perform a new install!

On the Top Activity page is there any way to include the previous 3 months of data (in 3 links Dec, Jan, Feb) - I'm more than willing to pay for this function.

This is a problem with the style you are using. It would seem the style places the template hook where this mod adds its information outside any cells.

I suggest editing your postbit_legacy template.

Most likely this is due to a JS error preventing the JS that moves the information from running correctly. If this is a major annoyance, there are instructions for manually changing your postbit template so JS is not required in activity_mod_customization.html in the zip file, at the bottom of the file. You would want to follow the changes for "postbit_legacy (alternate location)", then set Activity Display Settings->Automatic postbit alteration to None
