Who's online/Where

Post by northerncountry »

Ok I think I recall seeing a mod somewhere that displays exactly where a user is at in your forums but I can't seem to find it. I have done different searches and no luck. Does this really exist? or was I drinking too much beer that day? If anyone knows what I am talking about, will you please drop a link to that mod?

Thanks

phpBB already has that included in there...

www.[youboard]/phpBB/viewonline.php

that link is linked already on your board in the who is online section.

is this what you are looking for?
or looking for something more advanced?

The original who's online that comes with phpbb only shows which forum the user is in. The one I saw will actually show wich post or topic the user is currently reading also will show if the user is modifying profile settings, and if the admin is in the admin panel it will say something like Perfoming Admin duties. Also if an admin or moderator is moderating a forum, it will say moderating duties.

I could swear I've seen a hack like this a while back.

Well it works now but I must be blind because I don't see a download section. I also did not see it it the mods list.

Thanks for your help anyway.

Been looking for this mod, or something similar I guess, for a while now...not much luck. I just want it to list the usernames browsing the topic, IN the topic at the bottom or wherver.

I found that mod you are looking for. I just installed it on my forums yesterday and I must say, I am very impressed. It works just like the VBulletin whos online. However, it has a few minor bugs in it which I am trying to get resolved by the author.

Here is the download link:
http://phpbb-tweaks.com/down_db.html-pa ... ile-id-629

and here is the link to the bug report i have made:
http://phpbb-tweaks.com/topics.html-p-15924#15924

BTW, If you know anything about codeing and you know how to fix this minor bug, please let me know. It seems as if the author doesn't respond very well to bug problems in his mods. That is just the feeling I get just by reading all his posts on his board. So far I have not had a response on how to fix this.
