Tracking Forum Traffic

Post by rouxster »

I have searched this forum up and down with no luck. I am trying to track hits coming to my forum. I am looking for things like hits per day, domain hits are coming from, etc. I can only FTP to my site, so I can't technically "install" something. I would need an addon. Does anyone know of anything that will help me out?

This is exactly what I am looking for, but the author of the thread hasn't posted anything since his original post

why not just install a simple counter for 'normal' websites?

They come in HTML/javascript so you can add the code to your overall_header.tpl OR overall_footer.tpl and upload it with ftp

When you don't have your own server or have it hosted where it is tracked for you you must copy HTML/JavaScript yourself.

Here is one I use, I can recommend that one, but there are lot's of others around!

See my tracker:

if you have your own server try setting up webalizer or awstats.
I have awstats on my private server, it needs perl to be set up and a cron job to run the tool every x minutes or so.

tracewatch

Post by c hurd »

Tracewatch does a very good job of providing the info you are looking for. I use it on many different site types.

Ran across this thread looking for a mod that will track the specific threads each user has viewed during each visit. Still looking....

You can not run php files in a tpl file unless you have Extreme styles mod.

Else the php would go into includes/page_tail.php and you wouldn't need the

<?php

or the

?>

Just place the include before the ?> in includes/page_tail.php

don't know about that -- I don't have the extreme styles mod, this is where I've placed it, and it has worked fine for me for almost a year now, through several server moves and updates... :D

update

Post by c hurd »

wait, noticed my code is different.. I think twatch has a section on their instructions where you push a button to get a different type of code. This is what I use:

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
//<![CDATA[
document.write('<scr'+'ipt type="text/javascript" src="http://yoursitehere/phpBB2/twatch/jslogger.php?ref='+( document["referrer"]==null?'':escape(document.referrer))+'&pg='+escape(window.location)+'"></scr'+'ipt>');
//]]>
//--></script>
