Is there any way to display the most number of users ever online? Hopefully be able to include at the bottom of the main forum page with the other Users Online stats.

If anyone has any ideas or code that they have used that would be great. Please keep in mind that I have next to know knowledge about PHP. But I could probably understand what you're talking about because I have worked with other scripting languages.

There is no particularly easy way to do it, since it would require another table with counts that would be updated whenever a user visits.

can it be done though? like how hard would it be? it's just a counter right? and when the count exceeds the table then the table increases by 1?

Certainly it can be done, however it is not quite as simple as you make it out to be.
During the session initialization code, you would need to see if this user was previously logged in today and based on that increment the counts table.
The counts table would need to look something like this:

date (timestamp) reg_users (integer) anon_users (integer)

So, for each date you'd have a value inside that table, so to get the maximum number of registered users you'd simply run SELECT MAX(reg_users) FROM visitor_counts_table;

Something to this effect.

Damn, I have no idea how to do this. I know next to nothing in PHP. Would anyone be able to write a script for me?

FUDforum's Development team does do commercial work related to the forum such as customizations, installation and support. If you are interested send an email to sales(at)prohost(dot)org with the spec of what you would like to have done.

phpBB 2 has a configs table and is storing there data like
records and al config data (key: config position, value: config value).
you know, i can't view your FUDForum code 'cause of the zlib thing, but don't you have a similar place for configs? or do you store the config data in flat files?

cheers - andy

You can view the source via the WebCVS (read the CVS thread).
As for config file there is 1 include file that contains various forum settings, the file is called GLOBALS.php and is found inside the include directory.
