Hi All,

My current site is MyPhpMuke and I am moving to XOOPS !
I am getting all the modules set up and writing the conversion script.

In MPN I had a module which tracked each user and entered the following into the db:

-time-current page-last page-ipnumber-username

It created a big list and I can analyse this and find out on which page users decide to leave the site or when they decide to register etc.? It is also used a lot to find out the activities of users who find it ammusing to try and break stuff or just be a nuisance.

Is there a XOOPS module out there which will do something similar ? Or do I need to write my own ?

Kind regards, Highlander

Is there no one else who users sometihng similar ?

I dont mind writing my own but if there is a tried and tested sulotion out there which I just need to change that would be great.

Thanx, Highlander

Re: user tracking

I use PHP-Stats and simply have a custom block visible on all pages, but only containing the HTML/JavaScript code to call the stats-gathering page. Works fine for me.

Thanx Mithrandir !!!

If anyone is looking for a complete analysis of anything (?) I suggest giving PHP-stats a whirl.

I downloaded my copy here : Link

I beleive this bit of software will spit out just about all the statistical information about any php website. It has a built in export to excel so anything it can''t analyse you can create yourself from the logs ! Just brilliant.

There is a small block called PScounter that you can use with this script. Nothing to do with webmaster76, it's a XOOPS module. If you look at my site in the signature below, look low down on the LHS at site statistics.

Read about it HERE

Re: user tracking

PSCounter never really took off because of several things, I couldn't be bothered to implement:

a) You will have to run the PHP-Stats on the same database as XOOPS
b) The "improved" Who's Online block is not 100% precise, yet
c) Other things, I cannot remember off the top of my head

If I recall correctly how to set it up is explained in the pscounter download, but I'm not sure.

Except already written recipes I can recommend to see at User Visit module.
It's pure admin side module, which tracks visits of users - shown amount of visits, time of visits and lenght, visited pages (not as a path, as I see, as list)

Thank you all for your comments and ideas,

After testing all the options given I have gone with php-stats loaded from a custom block.
I can recommend this solution for anyone looking for a complete statistics solution.

Kind regards, Highlander
