This product is very flexible. You are able to choose which stats to show, disable some details to save page space, optionally show data from last X days only, make several other functionality/make-up customizations... See screenshots.

You can have Main Stats box shown on several pages...
It's shown by default on forumhome (to disable it set "Main Top Stats box on ForumHome" to "Disable")
To activate another location:
a) put location-name in "Stats on Custom Pages" field in hack settings
Explanation: When you open some vBulletin php file you'll see this at the top - "define('THIS_SCRIPT', 'XXX');"
XXX is location-name we need. It's usually the same as php filename (without extension, of course)
Note: When setting several locations then separate location-names by commas
b) add "$cybtopstats" to the template called on page where you wish to have stats shown

-To set options go to: vBulletin Options > Cyb - Advanced Forum Statistics
-"Top Thanked" works only with Abe1's "Post Thank You" hack. Don't enable if you have not this hack installed.
-To move Top Stats box somewhere else on forumhome: 1.-Set placement setting to "None" 2.-Add "index" to "Stats on Custom Pages" setting 3.-Add "$cybtopstats" wherever you wish in FORUMHOME template.
-If Top Stats box is too big because of long usernames or thread/forum titles be noted that you can trim them in ACP options.
-When forum/thread titles or usernames are trimmed, mouse-over will show you full version.

1. Required:
Import XML file (as product) through AdminCP: Plugin System > Manage Products > [Add/Import Product]

2. Optional - if you use custom styles and stats are not shown:
Open FORUMHOME template and add "$cybtopstats" where you wish Stats box to appear

3. Optional - if you use custom styles and link to re-enable stats is not shown:
Open desired template and add "$cybts_enablelink" where you wish "Enable Top Statistics" link to appear

I noticed some bugs with this. I disabled it for now because threads from private forums are being displayed in the stats.

Also, how can I move it to another area on my forumhome? It is added automatically but I don't want to display it where it is by default.


Also, is it possible to use custom profile fields with this, such as sort people by the number in filed[7] or whatever. For points or something?

I's not showing the stats for private forums/threads on mine, only shows these if you actually have access to the private thread/forum.

I still cannot get it working on the vbAdvanced front portal however .. *sigh*

Now is a perfect time to implement this 4.9 to 5.0

Users who have no permissions to view topics (either forum permissions or via password)
dont show in the latest posts / announcements
My software never has bugs. It just develops random features.

Double check those two things:
vBulletin Options > Forum Listings Display Options > "Show Private Forums"
Forum Manager > choose forum > "Show Private Forum"

Have 4.9 running as a clean install on a vB 3.6.5 test board.

All features work, but it is crowded.

I would like to add one more vote for the following features/options:

1 - Admin selectable time period
I'd use "month" or maybe "week"

2 - Chron job to calculate stats
'cause otherwise the load is pretty bad

3 - More flexibility in display options
Personally I'd like to arrange all the stats in a single (right) column instead of across the width of the page.

And instead of a single call to $cybtopstats, it would be useful to be able to call each type individually, like $cybtop_latestnews, $cybtop_topposters, $cybtop_hotthreads, etc.

But if not, at least an ability to assign stat groups to particular rows in the master top stats table, such as:

Latest Forum News, Newest Members, Top Posters, Top Thread Starters: Row 1
Top Referrers, Most Viewed Threads, Hottest Threads, Top Posters: Row 2
Top Thanked Members. Top Reputations: Row 3

And the ability to change the order of each type would be useful as well.

This issue is very important as you have a super comprehensive stats package, but nobody can use it fully because of layout restrictions.

4 - Add a "more..." link to each stat set.
And a secondary page that displays just the stats for that type, but with the expanded display (i.e., with all features "enabled" perhaps).

If this helps, I went straight from 4.5 to 4.9, I sure hope that didn't cause any problems.
I have the same problem.
How to fix this?

I am sure that Cybernetec will find solution for this soon.
He is a great coder, and all his scripts are great.

Just give it some time.
