The Gravity Insights Community Plugin.
Addon name: Gravity Insights for Vanilla2 Addon description: Gravity Insights is a real-time forum analytics service. Gravity Insights is the only analytics service designed to help forum administrators understand their content and users and make their sites better. With Insights, you’ll have a detailed understanding of who comes to your site, why they come to your site and how they interact with your content. Addon version: 1.1.1
Feature Highlights Dashboard - Hourly trends for the last 24 hours - Recent stats & trends (pageviews, visitors, new members, new threads, new replies, searches) - Active Threads - Active Users - Trending Topics
Real-time Dashboard - Real-time stream of new threads - Real-time stream of new media
How does it work? Once the modifications is installed, Gravity Insights puts a lightweight beacon (similar to Google Analytics) on every Vanilla generated webpage in your forum. In addition, Gravity Insights has custom hooks that initiate asynchronous server-to-server calls between your Vanilla forum and the Gravity Insights servers. These hooks allow Gravity Insights to track all the things that standard analytics software can’t track (like new threads, new replies, new member registrations, etc.).
