Great hack works good so far. Only one question... It shows view which forum and posting... But I was wondering what code I would need to enter and where, to show if a member was editing a post or just reading/viewing a paticular post. As opposed to actually replying to it.

If someone can show be the code to put and in which cgi.files. Obviously edit.cgi is one of them, but whats the code and where??

Also any possibility of making it log people in their PM inbox or out box???

Thanks!

You need to do the extra steps in the installation where it makes a SSI call in ubb_library2.pl

I installed the hack. The only problem I am having is that I am showing up as offline.

I also would like to know how I can show who's online like shown on this site.

I would go through each post made in this thread...but after page 5, I have managed to get a headache.

Hope someone wouldn't mind helping me? [Linked Image]

Thanks,

Iliana

I'm trying to get the the who's online to track which thread people are reading....in the direction it says to enter this code after the $Header2 in ubb_library2.pl:
Code
code:


But it keeps on giving this error:

[an error occured processing this directive]

I know the above relative path is right but can't seem to understand why it keeps on giving that error.

Your SSI is not being parsed. Try renaming the file in which the call is made to .shtml. If this doesn't work, your ISP probably does not support SSI.

*sigh*

how many times do i have to say this!

<--#exec --> tags CANNOT PARSE QUERY STRINGS!!!!

some1 change the instructions in whos online docs.

To parse query strings u must use

<--#include virtual="cgi-bin/online.cgi?forum=$Forum&topic=$TopicSubject&link=$NonCGIURL/$ExactPath/HTML/$ThreadNumber.html"-->

In my experience it is NOT necessary to modify either the UBB file locking or the UBB cookie subroutines to install this hack if you are using a recent UBB release (eg 5.47b or above).

These UBB routines already have the fixes included (which is why the UBB code does not match the instructions in the hack). They include the same fix using different code, so to replace them is to regress the InfoPop code rewrite. No point in doing that.

Can someone update the hack documentation?

GoTorankusuKu, I struggled with the same thing, the record not being kept but being over written. I fixed it quite by accident but what I can figure, it has to do with changing the online.cgi file in your Members directory to 777. That fixed mine up.

Now, a question for you...or any other brave soul. I just installed the latest versions of PM, Who's Online, and IM to my 5.47C board. After some issues, I got it all working...except when viewing with Netscape (them bastages![Linked Image]) Explorer it's fine...but with Netscape 4.7, all the "online" icons for the whole thread end up in the topic starters post?!? In other words, everything appears normal, except the first post in that thread will have a whole string of online icons! And the IM link attached to those icons won't work, they are just icons.

In Explorer, it's 100%. Any suggestions?

The board is at http://www.stripersonline.com/cgi-bin/ubb_547C/Ultimate.cgi

Your guidance is much appreciated [Linked Image]

Hey, I hope you guys can help me out. I have done everything that I can, and now I'm asking for help. I installed the Who's online hack and all the board will show is "no members, x amount of guests." It gets the number of guests right but I cannot get it to list the members. I have gone through the steps many times and all seems right. I'm thinking that it must be a cookie problem because if I go in and view the online.cgi file in the members directory it lists my ip, but it is showing guest.
I am using 5.47d. I have installed Memberslist hack also, but when I click on memberlist I always get a "sorry but only registered members can view this list." I am not too worried about that, but I thought it may be related. Can you guys help me out with the Who's online hack? Thanks!!!

I suppose I should post it here:

I installed the hack, but for some reason it won't load from the main page. It works fine in the CP but when I click on the link to see the whole list of browsing members it can't load it. I triple checked the links and it seems correct. It just refuses to work for some reason.

The link is http://ssjpalace.netfirms.com/cgi-bin/Ultimate.cgi

Thanks for checking it though.

Firstly, thanks for the great hack Dave, it's exactly what I've been looking for. I am having a small problem though, unfortunately.

Basically, all I am ever getting is "Currently browsing the boards, 1 guest"

In other words, no matter how many guests and members are browsing the boards, it is only ever displaying 1 guest as being there.

I followed the installation instructions to the letter, although there is one I haven't been able to implement, which is probably causing my problem. In postings.cgi I am meant to replace the line

$ExtraInfo = "";

with

$ExtraInfo = "/";

Unfortunately, I can't find this string anywhere in postings.cgi Could this be causing my problems? If so, is there a workaround for this? I am using UBB 5.47b by the way.

Thanks again for a great hack.

Okay, just had a look at online.cgi in the Members directory, and I can why I'm only getting shown 1 member or guest. The IP is listing as 127.0.0.1 so presumably my hosts have a proxy or something. Because the IP is the same for everyone, each entry is overwriting the others instead of being appended.

So, all I have to do now, I think, is take the IP thing out of Daves code. I'm fairly new to this CGI stuff, but I will have a go at it. If anyone could point me in the right direction, however, I'd be very grateful.

I'll post the solution if I get it figured out!

-------------------------

Okay, I just did! I took out the line in ubb_library.pl (in your cgi-bin) which says,,,

@online = grep{!/|^|$ENV{'REMOTE_ADDR'}|^|/} @online;

And that seems to have fixed it, as it's not writing the IP address anymore, so the entried aren't getting overwritten.

Hope this helps out anyone with the same problem. Thank you for such a brilliant, useful and easy to implement hack, Dave.

Neil I had the same IP problem.

I did as you suggested and removed:

@online = grep{!/|^|$ENV{'REMOTE_ADDR'}|^|/} @online;

from ubb_library.pl but when ever the Who's online page refreshes the counters keep incrementing although no one else is on the boards. I presume it keeps counting the IP again and again. Are you aware of this and if so did you manage to fix it?

I have set the Who's Online page to refresh every 30 seconds. It refreshes only 3 or 4 times then stops. Why?

FYI, 127.0.0.1 if your internal loopback IP, for example, if you ran a web server, you could type in http://127.0.0.1 and it would tell your browser to look for a web server on your machine.

Simply all that is doing is searching for the remote host address and pushing it into an array. So I doubt if that was the main cause of your problem, even though it may have seemed to have fixed it.

What web host do you run your board on?
If its a f2s host then forget because this hack will never work with that host.

We are running on a standard Linux box.

If I remove the line as Neil suggests it does not fix the problem very well and each time the who's online page refreshes it counts everybody again!

We are running a website for company employees. Many of them connect from the same building and thus use the same IP address. We may have 100 of them online but Who's online shows them as a single guest.

Any ideas?

Well thats where your problem lies, if you all access the board via a proxy of sorts and use the same IP address then the who's online will not work. From memory it uses unique IP's/Host Names to increment the online counter. Hence your problem. As for a fix, well Im not to sure atm sorry, it would take some looking into.

With the v6.0 version there is a choice of using different logging methods which is good.

Thank's BassTeQ. It's a pity there is not a work round.

Lord Dexter - I hear what you say about version 6, but for OUR pruposes I think version 5 is a better board.

Is it possible to change the total visitor count of Who's online from "Current & Record Book", to "Current and most board visitors in a day"?
