: Site/Forum Tracking and Statistics
: This mod tracks users to your forums and related pages that use phpBB session handling.
First off, I would like to just ask who might be interested in this mod (as I havn't seen one like this on phpBB.com mod DB) besides me, from how I'm developing it, it is really only useful for people who have added pages with phpBB session handling.
This mod will take the phpBB session handling (includes/sessions.php) and add a tracking module to the forums. It is losely based on Webanalyse (developed by Nanobody
) another traffic analysis application that uses text files.

This isn't exactly what my mod will look like, this just gives you an idea of what it will look like in a completed form
It adds a new entry to a table for each time a new session is created (web traffic analysis lingo: a unique hit) and the referer of that hit.
Plus it adds a record of each page the user visits (with the exception of filtered ips/hosts and the ACP)
The statistics are viewable from the ACP using 3 key views:
(divided up into a day view),
(shows total hits to a certain page), and
(has stats such as hosts, browsers, operating systems, top level domains, top referers)
The Global stats page interface will be mostly pie charts and graphs using the jpGraph OO graphing library (More information on jpGraph can be found here
Examples of the pie graphs are here
• Unique Hit tracking
• Referer tracking
• Page tracking
• ACP integration

- - Graphical interface
