The reputation extension is this: https://github.com/Pico/phpBB-Reputation-System

The forum viewing thing would be a bit difficult to extract as it is custom code added to the forum software together with a lot of other custom changes i have made to the forum software..

Bye and thanks for the answers.
Uploaded to the forum root renamed to reputation but nothing appears in APC.
It's not the first ext I've installed, maybe it's not compatible.

It's most likely because of the directory names. They have to match the extension namespace, that you can see by for example open the ext.php file:

Code: Select all

namespace pico\reputation;
So the the location of ext.php and the other files and directories of the extension has to be in the directory location pico\reputation which again is relative to the ext directory of the your forum.

I have changed the directory names in the attached file, and have not made any other changes to the extension.

Unpack the files and upload the "pico" directory with its contents to your ext directory on your forum and it should work.

Hello,
I downloaded the version for phpbb 3.3. Just installed the forum crashed and I had to restore.
/public-html/forum/ext/pico\reputation.
Right path.
This one you attached should be 3.1 which I haven't tried yet.

Sorry, i didn't check to see what phpBB version was supported.

If you found a version that is build for phpBB 3.3 then that is what you should use(if it works).

It's usually a good idea to setup a test forum, for example on your local computer to test out these extensions before using them on a live forum.

phpBB modification to show forum viewers count

Post by J. H. Rasmussen »

It was less difficult then i expected. I have tested it on the test forum i set up, so it should work with the phpBB version you use(phpBB 3.3.2).


In "/includes/functions_display.php" find:

Code: Select all

	
			'FORUM_ID'				=> $row['forum_id'],
			'FORUM_NAME'			=> $row['forum_name'],
			'FORUM_DESC'			=> generate_text_for_display($row['forum_desc'], $row['forum_desc_uid'], $row['forum_desc_bitfield'], $row['forum_desc_options']),
			'TOPICS'				=> $row['forum_topics'],

And replace it with:

Code: Select all

			'FORUM_ID'				=> $row['forum_id'],
			'FORUM_NAME'			=> $row['forum_name'],
			'JHR_FORUM_USER_COUNT'	=> obtain_users_online($row['forum_id'])['total_online'],
			'FORUM_DESC'			=> generate_text_for_display($row['forum_desc'], $row['forum_desc_uid'], $row['forum_desc_bitfield'], $row['forum_desc_options']),
			'TOPICS'				=> $row['forum_topics'],
In "/styles/prosilver/template/forumlist_body.html" find:

Code: Select all

	
<a href="{forumrow.U_VIEWFORUM}" class="forumtitle">{forumrow.FORUM_NAME}</a>

And replace it with:

Code: Select all

			
<a href="{forumrow.U_VIEWFORUM}" class="forumtitle">{forumrow.FORUM_NAME}</a><!-- IF forumrow.JHR_FORUM_USER_COUNT --> <span class="users_viewing">({forumrow.JHR_FORUM_USER_COUNT} Viewing)</span><!-- ENDIF -->
In the last find and replace i have showed how to modify the template of the prosilver style, you will need to do that change to all the styles your forum use, where you would like forum viewer count to be displayed.

Works!!! I don't know how to thank you and I'm happy about it.
I need to figure out how to set the plural of the text
(1 Connected) (2 Connected) if more than one gives me (2 Connected)
I would also like to color the text thanks :)
