Guests Online in Online List?

    I’m curious if anybody has accomplished adding the amount of currently online guests to the online list plugin.

    I’d like it to show something like “3 members and 34 guests are online”

    Was going to work on it, but figured I’d ask first.

    I ported GamerZ’s useronline plugin for wordpress to bbpress awhile back. Been meaning to clean it up and release it one day.

    It can not only count members and guests but since it keeps a list of the top bots, it can track those seperately. It also tracks where the users are (last browsed). So I have that working across a wordpress/bbpress install.

    Actually, knowing my style, I will rewrite it from scratch at some point to work a little cleaner. I don’t like how it discards the data after the timeout period which loses valuable information about the user’s last activity before leaving.

    It’s always bothered me that wordpress/bbpress doesn’t even natively track the last time a user logged in, only when the account was originally created, so you can’t even tell how dormant the account is.

    I’ll probably bundle this with my ip2country routines so we can have pretty country flags next to member avatars as well as a list of what countries are currently visiting the forum.

    I’d be thrilled if you could email it to me in the meantime… (my email address is right on my homepage contact link)

    Any news on this one? :-)

    Thomas Klaiber has made an online list plugin. It’s in the plugins section.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think it will display guests.

    Sorry, I didn’t realise that GamerZ’s specifically had guests.

    I’d crave for it too ;)

    I would really like to see the port of GamerZ’s plugin.

    I gave up on GamerZ’s plugin and wrote my own (User Track) which is more efficient (faster) and does a few more tricks. Unfortunately it may not be available for a couple months as I need to do some more testing and write some geoip importing features.

    >> t may not be available for a couple months

    Err.. so? Did you get any luck with that?
