User-Tracking on whole site

User-Tracking on whole site
October 31, 2007 06:24PM
HI together,

I'm searching for a hack, that tracks user-activity over the whole page.

At our site Phorum is embedded into a sort of community-page with much more content, than just the Phorum. Now, i want to track the user-activity, also if a user doesn't uses the forum. Anyone know a snipped for this case?

Thank you
Sun

Process the server's access logs?
Use the google site statistics?

hehe, sorry, i dont need another statistic-site ^^ my fault ;)

$PHORUM['track_user_activity'] is the key for me.

The background is, that the Forum shows with the Mod Online Users, whos currently ... well... online ^^. Unfortunatly this data is only tracked in the Phorum, but i want to integrate this tracking into the whole site.

Either make custom code or include common.php on every page like:
$pwd = getcwd();
chdir("/phorum/dir");
include_once "./common.php";
chdir($pwd);
unset($pwd);

Thank you brianlmoon. But this is my problem. I am a designer, no Coder. Thats, why i asked for a hack or hint. Im not familiar enough with the Phorumcode to make this custom code.

Thanks for this code, it is included now. But Perhaps there is anyone, who has already a slim version for me?

Thanks @all

There isn't any, but it would be a combination of the quick authentication code that Brian posted somewhere else and an update to the database. But if your server is good enough then why not simple go for this version? It's not less slim than the rest of the Phorum pages. It does load some extra stuff, but maybe at a later point in time you will be needing it anyway for further integration.

common.php does update the database and if you use that, then you are done. Quick auth + database update would be what was needed for implementing it without loading the Phorum common.php script.
