Social Group Statistics in Whats Going On

As the title suggests this modification will add Social Group statistics to the Whats Going On section of your forum homepage. Just in case you want to see it in action before committing to install I have attached a screenshot of the WGO.


Installation of this modification does not require any template edits etc and only requires the installation of a standard product XML file. To install this modification follow these steps:
  1. Download the attached XML file to your computer.
  2. Goto your Admin CP page (ACP).
  3. Open the "Plugins & Products" section.
  4. Click "Manage Products".
  5. On the page that opens scroll to the bottom and click "Add/Import Product".
  6. In the "EITHER upload the XML file from your computer" browse to the product XML file that you downloaded in the first step (product-socialgroup_homepage_stat.xml)
  7. Click "Import"
  8. Sit back and watch vBulletin do its magic.

Other Information
  • If you have vBulletin blog installed this modification will put group stats after the blog stats.
  • This will add one additional SQL call when the forum homepage is viewed.

Related Modifications

This is the third modification in my "Why wasn't this stuff in the default social group system" series. For the others, see these pages:

Social Group Discussions Like Postbit Legacy

And finally...

You know the deal by now, if you use the mod please mark it as installed and vote for it. If for some crazy reason you reckon this mini mod is worth it then nominate it for mod of the month.

Also, I have just spotted a minor bug in that the template was not cached - this has now been fixed and the update uploaded.

Looks like just what I'd like. I didn't want a whole list of the social groups on the front page, but I do like the idea of a little blurb with statistics. Thank you!

Try a search before posting for help. Many users won't, and don't, help if the question has been answered several times before.

Online vBulletin Manual
If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)

Social groups seem to be one of VB's best kept secrets. Your mod will surely help draw some attention. Nice job.

*installed* but no stats are appearing. I have 0 groups set up right now so perhaps that's why, but I wanted to make sure I didn't miss something.
