  • [RELEASE vB2.0] Max Users History

    v2 - Updated to use no extra queries

    Okay, seeing as people asked for this, here it is. It's very, very simple in its operation.

    It just keeps a record of the most number of visitors at any one time, and displays it on the main forums page. The time/date format will obey the system you specified in the control panel, including timezone offsets.



    Installation is very simple. Simply download the attachment to this message, unzip it and upload install_maxonline.php to your forums/admin folder, then open that page in a web browser and carefully follow the instructions it will give you.

    The script will only call an extra query if the number of online users is greater than that the previous record. The records are stored in a new template called 'MAXONLINERECORDS', which is automatically installed for you with the supplied script.

    The install script has an upgrade option that will clean up the mess left by the original version...

    You can see it working online at snyx' forum here

    Extraordinarily Important Info
    When you upgrade your board to a new version of vBulletin, you must modify the install script that you run like this:

    Find
    PHP Code:
    $DB_site->query("DELETE FROM template WHERE templatesetid=-1 AND title<>'options'"); 
    and replace it with
    PHP Code:
    $DB_site->query("DELETE FROM template WHERE templatesetid=-1 AND title<>'options' AND title<>'MAXONLINERECORDS'"); 
    If you do not do this, your records will be destroyed when you upgrade.

          Sorry, when I put this together you hadn't said whether yours worked in 2.0 or not...

            When I posted I didn't even know if it worked in 1.x or not Sometimes I hack blindly at work. That's OK, I see how it works now.. if you put an install routine and a screenshot on your hack you get 5-stars eh?

            heheh :P take care

                      The hack creates a new table with a single entry that is queried when you load index.php. It compared the value in the table with the $totalonline variable, and if $totalonline is larger than the value in the table, the table is updated.

                      [edit] - the above info is now incorrect - [/edit]

                      To upgrade your board, you must modify the upgrade script as shown above, and modify the new index.php

                              Stop downloading this one for a little while.

                              I've devised a way to do this without an extra query on index.php... give me 20 mins and i'll post the new version.
