Refactoring view online into services and controller

Post by CHItA » Thu Sep 08, 2016 4:47 pm

If anyone has any suggestions on what might be improved on the viewonline page, now would be a great time to share. Or if you just want it to look and work exactly the same in 3.3 as well.

Ticket is here, but you really should comment here not there if possible.

Thanks for any input in advance.

The main purpose it is as per this Topic's Title and is fair enough, IMO. +1 :)

As an optional, yes..

let the viewonline to be more accurate starting from such a thing..:
" Users browsing this topic: 3Di and 1 guest "
I know there are one or more extensions in DEV there.. in DEV. 8-)

I think this should be shipped with the package itself as a normal feature, I mean in the core code.
Want to compensate me for my interest? Don't ask me, just do it
I'm available for custom phpBB jobs, you can PM me the details.

I would suggest "de cluttering" the Admin view and having the additional data (IP address, browser) available by clicking on, say, the username

Currently the viewonline page provides almost no sensible info about the place at the board the user is on. For a lot of places it just indicate the 'index page' place.
From this point of view, it would be nice to have this info as detailed as possible, for exanple:
- the topic and forum titles for reading topic case linking to that particular topic;
- the post id/title, topic and forum titles for the reading post case linking to that particular post;
- the [coloured] username for the viewing member profile case linking to that particular member profile;
- the searxh type id title for the searching forums case linking to the same seasch id page.

And so on if any other cases take place.
