As some of you know, I am a keen and active member of ModTheSims and have a fair few things uploaded there. For those of you who don't upload to MTS then you will not know about the rather awesome things there are hidden away for creators
One of those things is the download stats - I LOVE this feature and I really wanted it for LeeFish.
We already have a report that shows on a members control panel if they have uploads on LeeFish. It says how many downloads/views/comments of a certain item since the beginning of LeeFish.
Its nifty, I am very proud of it. But it's still not as good as the MTS one.......
What's wrong with it?? Its awesome.....
Well, it only shows the total. Maybe you want to see how many downloads YESTERDAY of a certain item. Or what items were downloaded last Tuesday.....or how many downloads today.
I am working on it - but I have to do it on the live site as I have no test database for LeeFish with all the data like we have here on the live site. So some of you (looks at BO
) have probably seen a little link on the user control panel that says download statistics.
It does not work - as yet - but I have made a little progress - with the help of Delphy from MTS who kindly gave me the graphs code he uses on MTS and a great guy called Tom Moore (AKA lobster) who has helped me get the Delphy code into a MYBB useable format.
Aims - Goals - whatever
I am developing the code as I go along - my goal is:
Have a stats page with all of a creators stats showing:
Overall stats per upload (done)
Downloads Today (done)
Downloads per day in the last month (10% done)
Downloads per day per item (is dreaming here)
Anyway, I will keep you informed, but at the moment its in development, I know most of the stuff that is wrong with it re display etc, and if you have ADDITIONAL
ideas (i.e. on top of what I have already listed) for what we can have in the stats that would be great. Reply here.
