Plugins Hello all!

I've released a new version of GUS. I highly recommend that everyone upgrade to this version because it contains a security fix. Before you start freaking out, the problem does not allow any kind of compromise of the system - it only allows non-authorised users to view some of the GUS pages.

In this release:

v1.5.0 [13 Oct 2005]

  • [security fix] fixed a problem which might allow non-authorised users to view some stats pages
  • [fix] if you had a file outside the document root which included lib-common.php, the path would not be correct when the stats were entered in the database [introduced in 1.4]
  • [fix] if your $CONF['site_url'] was 'http://foo.com' and someone arrived via 'http://www.foo.com', then 'foo.com' would show up as a referrer in the Who's Online block
  • [fix] sorting columns on today's stats was broken
  • [new] added new config option $_GUS_CONF['allow_ignore_anonymous'] to optimise a bit if you do not need the ability to ignore the user 'Anonymous'
  • [new] added filtering by referrer
  • [new] added some more navigation options to some pages

It is available through my geeklog software page.

Forum Plugin Version 2.5 Release

I have just released a test candidate of the GL Native Forum plugin version 2.5. This is the same code that I have been running on my site www.portalparts.com for the past 6 months or so. It's a completely re-vamped look and feel using CSS based buttons instead of images for a cleaner look but also should be a lot easlier to theme for different color schemes.

This is a release for testing so don't use it on a live site unless you are comfortable and able to restore or back out the changes. I've used it for months on my site but there can stll be many conditions that I have still not received enough testing. I will release another version once it has completed sufficient testing. Please post your feedback on my site or here in the plugins support forum.

Besides the change in the look, this version was a major rewrite of the core plugin and added many new features. For a summary of the new features - read on:

Geeklog Usage Stats [GUS] Plugin 1.4

Plugins I have just released a new version of GUS, which brings with it some significant improvements.

For those of you unfamilar with GUS, it collects statistics on who visits your site, which browser and operating system they are using, which pages they view, and which links they are clicking to get there.

This information is useful for monitoring your site for abuse [which you can take care directly if you have the ban plugin installed] and to see how frequently different parts of your site are being used.

Here are the [slightly] shortened release notes for version 1.4:
