Users Who Viewed Topic?

Sorry if this feature IS ALREADY available, and if this is the wrong forum to ask about it, but is there a feature that will allow everyone - or at least the administrator - to see who viewed specific topics? Perhaps maybe at the bottom of every topic?

Thanks!

No, I know that is already available; what I mean is, something that will show who has viewed a topic, even long after the topic has been posted; maybe like a Vbulletin-type thing (Viewers Who Viewed In The Last 30 Days).

Right...
Write this mod - not problem... But... See...

Sample:
You forum have 1000 topics, every time for topic view need open another special file for this topic, find username or IP (may be this need, store guest only as guest - this small faster) who now view this and compare with old viewers, if not find - need write new info about viewer, if find need increment count and again write this file... And this need store in another 1000 special files...

Very fan... Smiley

In VB (or others forum engines) this too hard fanny load servers... Smiley


PS: Who post in topic mod for 2.2 - here Tongue

Hi,

If you want to know if a specific user did view a topic, there is a trick:

You can check if the topic-number exists in the logfile of that user Wink
You need a good editor that allows to search in multiple files.
(I use Ultra Edit)

Download the members logfiles and then perform a extended search in the logfiles for the topic number.

Will someone kill me if I add this add to CVS? See attached images.


With nearly no extra serverload Staff can see who has read the posts.
It stores the view information post dependent. This means if there are 2 post it stores the user for this 2 posts, if more posts are added but the user did not look at the page his name is not shown on the other posts. If a thread has more pages the info is stored only for the posts of the page the user looked.
The little display window use the JavaScript and css of the QuickLinks feature, so it close itself if you go over it and out again, if you click another QuickLink or if you click the X.
The information is stored in the .ctb file of the thread, so they will increase, but viewers are taken off again after "Number of days after that Posts read by the User are marked as New Posts again.".

I don't know, but we can test while it is in CVS and here on this board.
It will increase in height. The width is set to 300px.
If it doesn't look good we can remove it easily without leaving a trace.

Its a good idea. I've wanted more of these quick things throughout the board but I dont know if this one is something that should be default. Maybe just a MOD.

Thats why I am asking her. Of course it can be dis/enabled in the admin center.

@ Captain John

Can you move this thread to "Feature Requests" to get more opinions on this?
One vote for and two against are a very low number for a large forum community like ours.

I don't know exactly how this works ... if this forum is 2.3.1, or if this forum is CVS ... but if this forum is the current CVS version, then why not try it on here for a few hours or days or weeks, and see both how it impacts the server use, and how people like it.

If it has a negligible impact, and people like it, leave it in (with an on/off switch in the admin center, of course.)

If it has a medium or heavy server impact, or people seem unsure of it, before 2.3.2, remove it again, but add to Boardmod as a mod.

Why not ... gives people a chance to try it before making up their minds. Sounds kind of neat to me, but I have no idea if I would really find it useful ... nice way to find out.

Though from what Deti said a few posts above, only the staff can see it, in which case I wouldn't really be able to figure out if I liked it or not, because I wouldn't be able to see it.
