Questions answered by this recipe

How can I know how many visitors are currently surfing on my site?


Copy CurrentVisitors.phpΔ to the cookbook directory and add include_once("cookbook/CurrentVisitors.php"); to config.php.


In your wiki pages, add the markup (:CurrentVisitors:) to display the number of visitors (strictly speaking "different IP addresses") that came to your site during the last MaximumNumberOfSecondsToConsiderAVisitorAsCurrent.

The counter will update only when action=browse.
