About
This is a Digg-style spy for seeing what's going on in your forum in realtime.

This is something I originally made about 4 years ago. Now that I rewrote it for vBulletin 4 (it also now uses the bundled YUI for animation), I decided to also wrap it up as a product package and release it for the world to use.

Installation
  • Put the spy.php file in your forum folder.
  • Put the digitalpoint_spy.js file in your clientscript folder.
  • Install the product-digitalpoint_spy.xml product under AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product
You can see a live version in action here:
http://forums.digitalpoint.com/spy.php


1.1.0 Update
  • Moved JavaScript to external file (works around template parsing bug with early versions of vBulletin 4.0.x).
  • XML generation is done with vBulletin's XML Builder class (let it deal with weird characters).
  • Switched JavaScript library to from YUI to jQuery (for an end user, it means better animations).
  • Changed do=xml to do=feed (works around servers that are overly protective and think they are trying to be hacked and blocking the request).

I have it installed and works with preregistered users. How ever I created an RSS User and for what ever reason the RSS Feed posts on the forums are not showing up in Spy.

How do I get the RSS User News Bot's posts to show up on Spy?

Please assist, I would really like the RSS Feed posts to show up on Spy.

Thank you!

Are there no ACP options for this? Working great and as described on my forum, But i cant find any mention of this in the ACP other then the templates..

By the way thanks for this Installed and rated...

------------------------

ETA: This is installed on 3 forums.. working on 2 of the three one forum recieves this error above the header.. It just wont work on that particular forum.. although i also get similier errors on other plugins that open in their own pages. so im sure its not the fault of the plugin however any insight would be greatly appreciated.
Warning: array_merge() [function.array-merge]: Argument #2 is not an array in [path]/global.php(29) : eval()'d code on line 55

If the RSS bot is not using the normal data manager for inserting data, it would not show up.

As for the array_merge issue, that would be coming from some other plug-in you have installed. A plug-in you have at the global_start is causing it... the Spy doesn't come with anything at that hook location, so can't really help you there, except to point you in the right direction.

I am not using a mod or hack for the RSS feed I am using the RSS feed set up in the base vBulletin ACP. I just assigned a User Name to make the posts in a specific forum.

For what ever reason the posts do show up on the "What's New" page. However do not show up on the "Spy" page.

Then the internal RSS feed system isn't inserting data via the data managers. The Spy system can only track data that is coming in via the normal data managers since there are hook locations there that allows you to intercept/read the data being inserted.

Would it be hard to pull the info on the spy.php page and place it in a widget for the cms page?
