Replace "Total Users" with "Active Users"

Post by tbehrens » Mon Jun 25, 2018 2:09 pm

For 3.2.2, here's how to replace the "Total Users" count on the front page with "Active Users".

This goes back one month to count a user as "active"; set your own period as appropriate for your board.

Back up and then edit phpBB/index.php:

Find

Code: Select all

// Assign index specific vars
$template->assign_vars(array(
and insert before it

Code: Select all

// 2629743 is a month in seconds, 30.44 days
$since = time() - 2629743;
$sql = 'SELECT COUNT(user_id) AS total_users
    FROM ' . USERS_TABLE . '
    WHERE user_lastvisit > '.$since;
$result = $db->sql_query($sql);
$total_users = (int) $db->sql_fetchfield('total_users');
$db->sql_freeresult($result); 
Then find

Code: Select all

 'TOTAL_USERS'   => $user->lang('TOTAL_USERS', (int) $config['num_users']),
and change it to read

Code: Select all

//      'TOTAL_USERS'   => $user->lang('TOTAL_USERS', (int) $config['num_users']),
        'TOTAL_USERS'   => $user->lang('TOTAL_USERS', (int) $total_users),
Back up and edit each phpBB/language/[lang-dir]/common.php:

Find

Code: Select all

        'TOTAL_USERS'           => array(
                2       => 'Total members <strong>%d</strong>',
        ),
or the language equivalent and change it to

Code: Select all

        'TOTAL_USERS'           => array(
                2       => 'Active members <strong>%d</strong>',
        ),
or the language equivalent.

That's it. You now have an overview of how many of your members have logged in during the past N days, depending on what you set $since to.

Well, in phpBB nomenclature, an "active user" is a user who is not "inactive", so this really shows more like "Recent users".
