Rob,

You use to have the ability to view who is currently browsing the RC and what topic they were perusing...that ability is no longer available, how come?

Hi,

Its on the front page, in the 'Board statistics' section...

29 guests, 1 members, 0 anonymous members
Rob Donovan, Google Bot, MSN Bot, Yahoo Bot, Voyager Bot
Show detailed by: Last Click, Member Name

Click on the 'Last Click' link, and it will show you all recent visitors.

Is that what you mean?

Rob.

Not exactly...Before, it would break down the 29 guests, too, and show what topics they were viewing. Now, it only shows what the members that are logged in are viewing.

It was nice to see what everyone was viewing.

Not sure I understand....

If you click on the 'Last Click' link, it takes you to a page that shows you all the users, and what they are doing / viewing....

Is that not the same??

Rob.

Rob,

Before you upgraded to this current version of the RC, when you clicked on Who's Viewing What, you'd see a detailed list of what EVERYONE was viewing.

Now, because all GUESTs are not differentiated, when you click to see what they are viewing, you only see what any members that are currently logged in are viewing, and not any of the GUESTs that are visiting the RC.

For example, at the time of writing this response, the following was listed as the number of people on the RC.

39 guests, 1 members, 0 anonymous members
andykay, Yahoo Bot, Google Bot, Voyager Bot, MSN Bot


Yet, when I click on LAST CLICKED, as you suggested, all I get is:


Guest Viewing Board IndexA minute ago
andykay Viewing Board IndexA minute agoPosted Image
Yahoo Bot Viewing Topic: Transfer code from UNIX to OS/390 via ASCEBCA minute ago
Google Bot Viewing Topic: ProivRC down timeA minute ago
Voyager Bot Viewing Board Index4 minutes ago
MSN Bot Viewing Board Index8 minutes ago


Before you upgraded, you use to list what all 39 Guests were viewing.

Ah, now I get it.

There is what I consider a bug with the forum, and the guest counter.

The count of 'Guest' is a user who is not logged on as a member, and the count is over the last 30 minutes.

When you click 'Last Clicked', it shows you a list of the members and guests. However, the list tries to be clever and 'group' Bots like Google Bot and YahooBot into single users. Yahoo bot surfs my site from many different IP addesses at the same time, and the 'Last Clicked' report groups all these together.

However, the Guest count on the front page does not group them together.

Therefor the count on the front page is not really correct.

So from your example above, there was actually only 1 Guest, viewing the index page, 'You' as a member, and then the other 38 Guests are spread between the 'Bots'.

Had the single Guest been viewing a page, it would have show you which page.

I have reported this as a bug to the forum people when I migrated to this version, but they said they did not regard it as a bug, and were not going to change it :(
Rob.
