    Hi,

    It would be interesting if you could improve this mod by adding a Last Activity on mouse-over option and other details.

    lange, that seems to be a combination of the Last Visitors and Who's Online modules. But the Who's Online is a little different. It just counts who are online at the point the page was loaded. It doesn't take into account the time cutoff. For example, it seems like that the 1.454 guests in that screenshot are the guests who were currently online at that time not in the past 24 hours. Guests don't have user IDs thus the system cannot record the number of active guests within a span or range of time. So including the number of guests in the Last Visitors module is a little misleading.

      No offense, it was just a suggestion.

      The 1454 guests are the fake guests. It's an option in the settings with the added number of fake guests.

      Both mods work fine. I will test the two mods for a while and decide which one to use. Your mod seems to have the advantage of not adding a MySQL table and it's important for me. The difference between the two mods is visually very small in the design as you can see on this screenshot that I will delete in the next few hours.

        I take no offense. I was just explaining that the number of guests seemed to be the currently online guests and not necessarily within the 24-hour cutoff. And now you disclosed that it is fake. If the fake guest count is set as an option, then you have to always modify it to make it dynamic and look like real? And I don't know why it adds a table in the DB as the last visitors info already exists in the database. My Last Visitors mod is the same as the "List Visitors in the Last 24 Hours" in the User Manager in AdminCP. The only difference is I made the time cutoff as an option instead of the fixed 24 hours.

          I don't know for the dynamic thing.

          It's ok Glenn. I'll look at that later with Mr Google translate. At the moment you may be losing me because of my age. ;-)

          (this is the last visitors mod from Yilmaz).

          I don't know how you configure the fake guest count on that mod but if you configure it by entering the count that you want to be displayed in the module, then that count will never change until you manually change the option again?

        The fake guest count option.

          So you'd have to keep on updating the fake guest count in order to make it appear real? Otherwise, showing 986 guest count every 24 hours or the count not even changing within 24 hours would make it look unreal as guests (including bots) usually come and go.

          No, I set this number just to test the Yilmaz mod. I installed the mod just a few hours ago after seeing a post on vBorg.

          My vB 5.6.6 forum is in test, it is not yet online. My vB 3.8.11 is online. When the forum 5.6.6 will be online, the number of fakeguests will be 0 since the content of the forum is almost totally hidden by many graphic placeholders. Why put a number of fake guest other than zero if the content of the forum is not visible to guests? ;-)

          Thank you very much for your mod.

          I was just commenting in the general use of the fake count not specific to your site. I don't see a huge benefit of using a fake count if you would have to update it frequently to make it look real or believable.
