    Is it possible to provide a list or count of current active members on the forum, like in Dbforums.

  2. bradmcgehee New Member

    That's a good question, and I don't know the answer. I do have the ability to track all of the active sessions on the entire website, but I don't know how easy it would be to do so for only the forum. I imagine it is possible. Does anyone have any suggestions on how this can be easily done?

    It means how many people are currently logged into the forum.

    I forget to mention, that during a typical workday, there are about 500 or so active connections on average to the entire website. The busiest I have seen it is just over 1,000 active users.

    Thanks Frank. I have added the modification, and you can see it at the bottom of the home forum screen. Let me know if anyone runs into any bugs, or if this feature introduces any performance drag on the forum

    Thanks for quick turnaround Brad and to Frank as well...
    It looks great on the main page and nothing seems to be changed on the Performance of the forum.

    Brad,<br />no performance penalty here. I think we can hardcode "satya" in that list [<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-5.gif' alt=';)' />]<br /><br /><br /><br />--Frank<br /<a target="_blank" href=http://www.insidesql.de>http://www.insidesql.de</a><br />

    Brad

    How about including this on the Active topics screen as well, if you feel this is beyond your time or disturbs any format then don't put yourself out to do so.

    Thanks.

    That's not a feature of the mod installed, and I am not smart enough to figure out how to modify the forum's code to add this feature myself.

    Even if so, would be a real pain when you're about to upgrade in the future.
    I experience this here myself. I use mambo as my cms and said to myself to cahnge a little as possible to the core package to make update and upgrades fairly easy. Now I find myself maintaining a list of some 30 points to carefully consider when thinking about a update to the core. Sigh!

    I was thinking about Satya question and I understand the complications to implementate.
    How about last member post and new Member?

    Some times (most of the times) I have Active Topics open, and when grow I can't follow in easy way if someone made some new (not 0 answer) post, may be in response to my post.

    May be with last member post and new Member will be easy to follow up.

    Unless the code is changed a lot, I don't know how this can be done. Luis, you want to volunteer to rewrite the code? [<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-4.gif' alt=':p' />]<br /><br />-----------------------------<br />Brad M. McGehee, MVP<br />Webmaster<br />SQL-Server-Performance.Com

    Hey!!!, I'm not a new member!!!!![<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-4.gif' alt=':p' />][:0]<br />I allready use in that way, but suppose the following: I visit two customer per day. I work in each customer about 4 to 5 hours. First customer has not internet. When I open the forum in second customer there is at least 20 or more active post. <br />I began to see every one. I answer (just and example) 5. The others 20 still there. <br />Is difficult (not imposible) to find if one of the post I don't participate, has other new question o need some more information.<br /><br />Ok. Not a big deal, was just a suggestion[<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' />].<br /><br />Luis Martin<br />Moderator<br />SQL-Server-Performance.com<br /><br /><font size="1">All postings are provided “AS IS” with no warranties for accuracy.</font id="size1"><br /><br />
