I am attaching my version of the online module...
It also shows the max users ever online.
In order to do this you have to create the following table:
CREATE TABLE `my_maxonline` (
  `maxonline` INT(11) NOT NULL,
  `date` TIMESTAMP NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP ON UPDATE CURRENT_TIMESTAMP
) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8;
and initialize it with something like:
INSERT INTO `my_maxonline` (`maxonline`) VALUES (1)

Hi,

After I upgraded my Kunena to 1.6.1, I've found that the number of guests are getting increased.
What parameter do I have to control to make them refreshed often?

My Kunena forum currently has one user, myself. However in the display it says there are currently 258 users online. What's up with that, and how can I fix it?

Thanks for your help. But as much as I wish this were true, there are no guests on my site. My forums are not even turned on. I publish the menu item to check something on the forums, and now today it says there are 271 guests online. But my site has 25 people per day visiting it, and the forums not even turned on 99 percent of the time.

What would cause this?

Joomla!

It could be anything: bots, screen refreshes, sunspots ... or real usage. If you want to analyse who is visiting and how they are using your website then install a website analysis tool.

I have two web analysis tools installed, and like I said, there are 25 people visiting my site on a good day. That doesn't account for there being 271 guests on my Kunena forums, especially when you consider that I just turned on the menu item to display the forums (which have been hidden all the time) ten seconds previously.

I just now turned the forum menu item on again, and instantly there are 221 guests. See the attached screen shot.



There are not 221 guests on my forums. Something is wrong somewhere...

Please turn on the Joomla own WhoIsOnline module and check whether the number matches what Kunena is showing.

Kunena uses Joomla's own session counter to display the stats. One can argue whether the Joomla session counters are accurate, but that would be a Joomla discussion to be had. We - on purpose - show the Joomla stats to not show confusing numbers that do not match up with Joomla.

In general any user without cookie support (like most bots) will get counted as guests on your overall site. It has nothing todo whether you publish the Kunena forum menu or not. Those guests are in the Joomla session table and only get displayed by us - we do not modify or recount that stat in any way.

Hope this helps!

We love stars on the Joomla Extension Directory . :-)

Ah thank you very much. I did turn on the whois module, and sure enough you are right, it showed 215 visitors on my site. I guess it must be mostly bots, unless my site google analytics are way off the mark.

Also I did figure out that I had to select "forums offline" in the configurations to turn the forums off.

Thanks again for your help.
