How to count guests
edited March 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I love the new guest count feature on this forum. I've seen similar feature on another forum that's uses the pro Who's Online plugin.
I was wondering how guests are counted? I would want to try to customize the Who's online plugin to show the guest count.
Thanks for the help in advance.
Unique ips as against signed in users i suppose
There was an error rendering this rich post.
422 is right, count the unique IP of those non - signed in users and store it in a db.
Check out my other Plugins here
We use a combination of cookies and caching to approximate the guest count because I wanted an O(1) solution.
