As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.

This tracks the number of guests that have visited a forum each day. This isn't possible in stock vbulletin as no record is kept of guest visits, they are a 'realtime' display only.

This modification adds another section to the "What's Going On" area.
It also has seperate pages to display (1) the list of guests, and (2) the pages a particular guest has visited

Options / Features ;

* The ability to turn the whole modification on/off.
* The ability to turn just the forumhome display on/off.
* The ability to allow (or prevent) certain usergroups viewing the forumhome display.
* The ability to switch between 'Today' and Rolling 24 Hours display (default).
* The script that the Guest is running is logged (e.g. showthread, usercp etc).
* The request variables in use are logged (e.g. threadid, userid etc).
* The guest table can be cleaned of old records to help control it's size.
* The datastore read (for spider detection) will read from the File/APC/Xcache datastore if used [note, not Memcache].
* Guest Views data collection - tracking each guests viewing of the forum index page, forums and threads.
* Guest Views data collection can be separately disabled.
* Multiple guest visits to the same page are logged separately.
* The option to keep a record of [and display] the most ever guests.
* Usergroup permissions are done with the standard vbulleten usergroup permissions system.
* Clicking on the main display icon will list the recent visits by all guests (if allowed).
* Clicking on a Guest type in the main display will list all recent visits by guests of that type (again, if allowed).
* Clicking on the option in the guest listing will show that guests viewing data (if enabled, and allowed).
* The main display can be set as always collapsed on initial page load (4.0.3 +)

Four new usergroup permissions are provided in the usergroup manager.

* Can View the Guests Visited Display - Members can view the guests visited display on Forumhome.
* Can View Guest IP Addresses - Members can see the ip addresses of visiting guests.
* Can View Guest Visits List - Members can view the list of guest visits page.
* Can View Guest Tracking Data - Members can view the individual guest visit tracking page.

* All (non usergroup) modification settings are in vBulletin Options > Guest Tracking.

To install (or upgrade);
  • Unzip the files.
  • If upgrading from a previous version, delete any old trg bitfield xml files from your ../includes/xml/ folder.
  • Upload the new bitfields file to your ../includes/xml/ folder.
  • Import the product into vBulletin using the ACP Product Manager.
  • Set your required permissions in the usergroup manager.

Note that by default no usergroup permissions are given, you must set them.


You can get an improved Spiders Definition file from this post.

Note: For Spider detection to work you must set Enable Spider Display to 'Yes' in vBulletin Options > Who's Online Options.
The installation code will turn this on for you.

It is recommended that you visit your Who's Online page after installing this mod (or after updating your spiders file) to make sure your spider definitions are built / rebuilt.

No idea on that.

This makes no changes to active users, and I dont see any extra comma on my test forum.

I'm sure it has something to do with the commalist. That is still screwed up in certain browsers.

I got it now, it was conflicting with another mod that messed up my usergroup functionality. Once I deleted that mod it works fine.

Thanks.

Thank you for this great mod!

But I face some problems with it. My vBulletin version is 4.0.8 suite.

1. Although my forum has visitors this mod shows all the time that ''No guests have visited the forum today''.

I myself visited the forum as a guest and still shows the same message that no guests visited the forum. If needed I can provide screenshot.

2. When the display collapse option is set to <YES> from the control panel the mod does not work at all. When I click on the arrow for the mod to get expanded no info are shown.... This does not happen if the display collapse option is set to ''no''.

The same problem happens to me with another mod called ''Member visit tracking'' of the same Coder.

if anybody knows how to overcome the problem please advise me what to do....

Thank you in advance for every reply!

Regards,
''Michael''

There is no way to answer you without access to your forum - since the mod itself works fine, something on your forum must be broken.

I looked tonight with the access you gave me.

1. This seems to be working fine - however, your forum is closed, so it cannot have any guests atm.

2. This is being broken by another modification you have installed - Animation Effects I have left that disabled.

The snow effect is slowing it down, but not actually breaking anything.

Thanks for the great mod, I was using it for my vb3.x.x board, but 1 question, will this work on my vb 4.0.7? I know you said that it is not compilable with 4.0.7 and lower, but just want to make sure, because I need it so bad. Like what are the misfunctions that can occur if I decided to use it on my vb 4.0.7 board?

It wont install (unless you fudge the xml).

If you did install it, it wont display correctly.
