    Is there a place to set that?
  2. scatteredbomb added a post in a topic: Suggestion: Temporarily time-out user   

    It'd be nice if we could temporarily time-out an active user in chat. Like if someone is spamming emoticons, it'd be great if we could time-out user temporarily (10 mins, 15 mins) so they can't type anything for a short period of time.

    It's a nice way to slap someone on the wrist, where kicking them out of the room can send the message, I also don't think it's as useful as a short time-out.

    Could you help me figure out how to order the list by the time a person was last active (so the most recent person is at the top). I believe the query is made in the list.php file, but I wasn't sure how to set that by last_activity (or if it's even possible).

    Perfect. Thank you.

    Can you tell me where to cache the skin? I thought I had done it, but I don't think I'm in the right place...

    The hook works perfectly in one custom skin (I had to make a couple minor CSS edits, but the hook itself works great), but it's not showing up at all in another skin. It's not that the CSS is weird or anything, but it doesn't seem like the hook itself is being launched (looking at the source code while on that skin, I see no reference to the friendsonline.css which I see in the other skin where it works). I thought it might be some kind of cache problem? Not sure what to try though. Any ideas?
  7. scatteredbomb added a post in a topic: Some member groups not seeing results of tags   

    We have some tags on our board and one goes back to 2010. I can see all the results, but no one other than admins can. Any other member group only gets "No results". If it makes a difference, we're using Sphinx for search.

    Anyone know what might be causing this? Thanks!
  8. scatteredbomb added a post in a topic: Deleting posts causes huge server load spike   

    Our forum has 2.4 million posts. When i delete 1 or 2, it causes the server load to spike ridiculously high. Average load is around 1-2, deleting a single post can sometimes cause the load to spike up to 16 causing the site to become painfully slow for a short period of time (3-5 minutes).

    Anyone have any ideas why that might be happening? Seems kind of crazy for the server have to work that hard to delete one row from the database.

    Thank you, worked :)

    We're getting this error on one of our skins when someone tries to view the page. It works on one skin, but not the other.

    Scratch that, found it. Wow. Had a filter left over from 2+ years ago when we had our forum in a different folder.

    In case anyone needs it in the future:

    In GA, when viewing a site, click Admin > Click Profile Name > Filters, make sure there isn't anything there.

    Any tips on where those filters might be?
  13. scatteredbomb added a post in a topic: Google Analytics only shows users in forums, not threads?   

    141 active users, actual members logged in is usually 40-60, definitely more than GA is showing though.

    In the regular reports I'm only seeing forums there as well. Which leads me to believe that maybe permissions are blocking them from actually reading the topics? Not sure if that actually makes sense since this code is loaded on the users end, so if they have access to a topic GA should be able to read that? Maybe not.
  14. scatteredbomb added a post in a topic: View all Recent Topics through search?   

    That shows new posts and everything. I only want to see newly created topics since my last visit.
  15. scatteredbomb added a post in a topic: View all Recent Topics through search?   

    Is there a way to view all recently created topics in search? Right now users can see the last 5 most recent topics in the index hook, but if you're gone for more than a day or two you can't find a way to view all the recently created topics once they're pushed off the hooks list.

    Any way to do that via search?
