Did you ever dreamed to know exactly where are these posts and new users ??
This is what i am actually coding for [user]Chris-777[/user]… actually he asked me the actual version of vbTrends from Hambil, but as i was planning a better engine, i decided to give it a go.
The inspiration comes from an engine i coded 2 years ago. Statpress™ which is a plugin for WordPress, was missing a logical overview chart, and i coded it for the author. here is a screenshot of it:
And as i’m never happy with the existing codes in vB, i decided it was lacking a real Statistics engine, so i coded it, based on the structure of Statpress… it is not calculating the same things, but the functions are similar here.
… this engine is not really useful for the day-to-day users, so it is permissions based… you give access to the ones you think it could be useful to.
basically, this engine tells the reader if the site is growing, at what pace, and the plans for the next days… 🙂 good thing if you plan on selling your site or try to bring some sponsors.
this product will also have a little plugin in the forumhome statistics, resuming these elements, which will replace the vbTrends… in a day or two, if things go well… this first part was coded in 12 hours.
