Deprecated TodaysVisitorsPlugin extracts the todays visitors from the logfile.

TodaysVisitorsPlugin is superseded by the UserInfoPlugin. This plugin will no longer be developed.

Syntax Rules

  • The %TODAYSVISITORS% variable gets expanded to a plain list of todays visitors.
  • The %TODAYSVISITORS{ ... }% variable does the same and takes the following attributes:

Attribute Description
header="..." is concatenated to the beginning of the list
format="..." the format of each list item, where $user is expanded to a single visitor
footer="..." is concatenated to the end of the list

$n, $dollar, $percnt and $quot behave the same way as in FormattedSearch.


%TODAYSVISITORS{ header="Todays visitors:" format="   * $user $n" footer="end of list" }%

TodaysVisitorsPlugin Global Settings

Plugin settings are stored as preferences variables. To reference a plugin setting write %<plugin>_<setting>%, i.e. %INTERWIKIPLUGIN_SHORTDESCRIPTION%

  • One line description, is shown in the TextFormattingRules topic:
    • Set SHORTDESCRIPTION = Generates a list of todays visitors

  • Debug plugin: (See output in data/debug.txt)
    • Set DEBUG = 0
