Does anyone have or has anyone seen a fix for this?

 

Originating URL does not save to Database User Tracker With Admin 1.34 contrib.

 

Thanks.

Umm, yes it does. It's been working fine on mine ever since it came out.

 

Perhaps you should retrace your installation steps.

Ah, that must be it.

I'm not using the latest version.

The reason why the referrer url is gone when the session expires is because it is never stored in the user_tracking table , instead it is pulled from the sessions table.

Once the session is over the it is deleted from the sessions table.

 

I have been trying to change the code so that the referrer is grabbed and stored in the user tracking table, but I am haveing problems figureing out how to use the $HTTP_REFERRER var.

 

Greg did a killer job on the current version, but he really ment it to be used for short time period tracking, less then a day.

 

If anyone out there has a little time to help we could build it out to act as a real user reporting tool for longer periods of tracking.

It wouldn't take much just adding some key items to initial data store and then just a few diffrent queries.

 

Cheers,

Mike
