Most active forum: Off Topic
[ 789 Posts / 52.99% of user’s posts ]
Most active topic: Random Topic Here
[ 81 Posts / 5.44% of user’s posts ]

^ I can see this information in the profile of all my members but on my own profile, as the admin, this information does not display. Why is this and how I can I fix it?

Actually it doesn't...

if you look at your profile here at and then mine here at, you'll notice that your most active topic and forum do not display. I think I may have found a correlation.

Here on this forum, you have over 10k posts. I have a miniscule amount comparatively. On my forum, where I also experience this phenomenon, I have over 10k posts but none of my other users come close.

Since it happens here at the site, maybe it’s just a limitation of the statistics code that prevents it from accurately picking a “most active topic or forum” when there are so many posts to contend with.

You think? If you don’t agree and still think it’s a problem that I incurred with my forum modding, then I’ll fill out the paperwork. =)

When a user has more than 5000 posts, this information will be not displayed. :)
To remove this limit, try the following.

Open: includes/functions_display.php

Code: Select all

// Do not display user activity for users having more than 5000 posts...
    if ($userdata['user_posts'] > 5000)
Edit or remove this code to change the limit.

Awesome! Thanks! Do you by any chance know why this limit was imposed? Does it put a strain on the server to process all those posts to come up with the statistical data? I don't want to mess with it if it was put in there for a good reason. I don't suspect they'd just arbitrarily put in limits like that so I should probably let it be.

To make the loadtime not the too high when you go to a user profile. :)
