Excelent mod, here is the spanish_latin translation!

Code: [Select]
$txt['fguo_guests'] = 'Cuantos falsos visitantes desea mostrar conectados (Dejar en blanco para desactivar)';
$txt['fguo_hidden'] = 'Cuantos falsos usuarios como ocultos(Dejar en blanco para desactivar)';
$txt['fguo_admin'] = 'Falsos visitantes y usuarios onlines';
$txt['fguo_memberlist'] = 'Nombres para los usuarios falsos (separar por comas)';
$txt['fguo_members_enable'] = 'Activar los usuarios falsos en la lista de usuarios conectados.';

great mod but if you click in who is online you wont see for example 450 guests(the guests you have added by mod,its possible to do it and when someone goes there to see for example:
Guest (1.3.5.3.5.3.523)    02:40:16 am    Viewing Gaming-paradise's Index

Buddy, around 160+ people have downloaded this MOD so far and apart of you no one else is facing this issue, so do I .. so how can I fix it when its not broken.

Alright, delete package and upload new fresh package and try to reinstall.

Can you sticK a randomizer within it so that if say you stick a 100 guests it will give a random number between 5 and 100 every hour

Just a thought! I hate having to adjust the number evsery time Im online so that it looks REAL! haha!

Yap, instead we can show message saying "You need to register in order to access this profile" and for registered member, we can say "You don't have access to this profile".

will it overload the server if you increase the number of guests to, say, 10,000 in 15 minutes period?

It doesn't seem to impact the server at all, in my case.

lol.... no problem. I'm a poor "Ricky" substitute, I realize :-)

What I can tell you is that SQL treats it as just a number. whether it's 1 or 1 million...it just plugs in the number and lists it in the forum.  That's about all I know, but again, he probably knows more than me and can give you more accurate details.

GOOD MOD...I'm loving it.
Title: Re: Advance Fake Users and Guests Online for SMF
Post by: David111567 on March 02, 2012, 02:06:55 PM
I made a manual modification that might help people who use this mod....

Every fake user name that I create...I'm also creating an actual account for.  So... every fake member has a profile.

However... when you click on the fake names in the list...it says "This User Does Not Exist".

So here's what I've done to rectify that:

In the file "Errors.english.php" ....I found the string:

"$txt['not_a_user'] = "

(it's around line 32)

and replaced "This user does not exist" with

"This member\'s profile link has been marked as "Private - No Follow". All profiles may be accessed directly from the "Members" section"

But you can replace it with anything that sounds convincing.  It beats being told that the member does not exist when they click on them.

Hope this helps.

GREAT MOD!!

Hi David, how about making the link profile not clickable. Will it be possible?
Title: Re: Advance Fake Users and Guests Online for SMF
Post by: Ricky. on March 03, 2012, 12:10:02 AM
Hey, David, thanks, you are right, this stuff will not make any load on server in any case as its just game of "FAKE numbers" :)

Regarding changes to this mod,  we have some good ideas I can see here, I can definitely make use of them to improve it, but only once I get time. My original plan was to add real looking fake profile but seems , we can do better, as I mentioned earlier, it may actually further encourage guest to register ie.
When guests click on a profile he gets :
"You need to register in order to access this profile" and
for registered member, we can say "You don't have access to this profile, become premium member to access it ".

And you cans for premium members ;)

Hi David, how about making the link profile not clickable. Will it be possible?

Yes, it can be done, but remember, if you make it not clickable, you're also removing the ability for members to click on other real members to get to their profiles.  It's sort of an "all or nothing" scenario, I think.  Maybe Ricky has another way to do it that I am not aware of, though.

ONE question!

It says make a real looking profile
i made a profile named bot
and when i wrote bot in the users online it said it doesnt exist and i looked at the link at the end it said bot
and when i went on the profile it said a id
SO what do i do?

Mmmmm, but you have to generate all that information (to each member, bot, browser, spider, seeing that page)... it is not the same showing 10 fake users than 1 millon fake users...

Post by: Ricky. on June 10, 2012, 04:08:26 AM
This mod changes statistics where user online information is built, if adk portal is not using it or doing their own calculation then it will not show fake guests/ user in their portal block.

I don't know if this is still being worked on or not (oh I hope it is!) but I know that one of the features you were wanting to add was "real" profiles.  Well while trying to find a random name generator for the users I created I came across this site:

Code: [Select]
http://www.fakenamegenerator.com/
I was thinking that somehow scraping it or using it somehow to backfill the profiles might be a way forward for you?  Just a thought.

Ricky,

Thanks for the mod. I have used it for the first 2 months of my forum and I believe it has really helped. For the last month I have only showed 8 fake guests. My forum is busy enough that I removed the mod now.

Is there anyway to remove the link on my smf "credits" page as well?

Thanks again!

Ricky this mod should be "our dirty little secret" so who use this mod want to hide the use of him, but you put your copyright and specified too clear that is fake users mod installed, was understand if was for "back-link" but to specify ? :(

So if you click the first SMF copyright from the footer is so clearly specified.... ugly...

I attach a picture to see ....

A bit of code I have made use of in the past that might assist the mod's author or ambitious admin.

Code: [Select]
function randomGen($min, $max)
{
    // setup our seed
    srand((float) microtime() * 10000000);
    // Generate the number
    $random = rand($min,$max);
   // Return the number
    return $random;
}
/*adjust these numbers to display a random number within a range-
make sure the low number is on the left.*/

$random_number = randomGen(10,25);
echo "<br/>There are " .$random_number. " visitors online";

Ricky, thanks for this awesome mod. Have you tested if it's working using TinyPortal mod? It's because on my frontpage, I'm showing up a block with connected users. Your mod is working on board index, but not in my TP block. ¿Any help?
Thanks for your time :)
Title: Re: Advance Fake Users and Guests Online for SMF
Post by: Arantor on April 11, 2013, 03:52:47 PM
It would likely require changing the TP block.
Title: Re: Advance Fake Users and Guests Online for SMF
Post by: Ricky. on April 12, 2013, 01:21:39 AM
May be because TP portal block takes data from SSI.php and I have not touched that for this mod.

I have this mod working nicely on 2 sites. On a 3rd site, I tried, and the settings in Admin did not show up.
Now, when I tried to look at the settings on the other 2 sites, they also were not showing up.
The mod is still doing what I set it to do before, but now I can't change the settings.
I looked through ManageSettings.php and there is nothing there for the mod.

I had seen here that someone had an issue about this, and then found out that the setting vanished, so thought you might want to know. Maybe another mod took it out, maybe the hook failed, I have no idea.
Title: Re: Advance Fake Users and Guests Online for SMF
Post by: Ricky. on June 17, 2013, 10:39:19 AM
May be hook file is missing or something. Can't say without looking further like what mod you installed after this mod or what was the most recent mod you installed , anything you see in admin error log ?  Little busy (as usual) , will however try to look into it.

Title: Re: Advance Fake Users and Guests Online for SMF
Post by: Ricky. on July 16, 2013, 08:51:36 AM
Not really, its not meant for that version though porting shouldn't be hard but seeing that 1.1.8 will be EOL so its not really worthy to port (not to mention time constraint). I suggest you to upgrade your forum to latest version and enjoy latest features of SMF along with this mod.

I ran into a problem a while back and noticed when I upgrade to PHP 5.4 the settings for this mod and one other mod disappears. The mod itself works, just can't see the settings for it anymore. I went back to PHP 5.2 and it showed up again. I've since switched back up to 5.4 and it's gone again.
Title: Re: Advance Fake Users and Guests Online for SMF
Post by: Arantor on January 15, 2014, 11:53:29 PM
That would be because the mod is buggy and hasn't been updated for changes in PHP 5.4 (namely deprecation of pass by ref at call time without function signature matching)

Subs-fguo.php
Code: (find) [Select]
function hooks_fguo_admin($admin_location)

Title: Re: Advance Fake Users and Guests Online for SMF
Post by: Mstcool on August 24, 2014, 10:24:21 PM
I think I messed it up. What missing symbols was I supposed to have?

The mod works but for the field where it says how many users should be added, I wrote 24 and gave 24 usernames.

So now my online list says:

24 Guests, 41 Users (0 Buddies)

And I'm the only one on it, no users, no guests.

So it should be 0 guests and 25 users.

So what would I do?

Edit: When I disable the mod, it still says 24 guests, even tho I have 0 guests on my site atm.

Edit again: Just read that this mod will display guests, but do we choose how many guests to show or does it do it automatically? But the 41 users problem still exist.
Title: Re: Advance Fake Users and Guests Online for SMF
Post by: Arantor on August 24, 2014, 10:39:51 PM
For the two lines you had to change, you just had to put extra & in them, take a look again at my post and check the lines are the same.

Anything else wrong with the mod, you'll have to ask the author.

Of course it doesn't. Why do you think I chose it? Makes it much harder to get PMs, which was entirely the point.

 To be honest hehe, the internet its self is not honest place. Forums people always represent they are something they are not. I do not use this addon, but perhaps a new site would like it to appear it was not a ghost town.
I see no moral issues unless someone was collecting money because of the members, then that I would agree.

Besides that like is often said, if one does not like the addon then don't use it. After all the ones that are free are umm free. :-X

download the package from here  Link to Mod (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=3330)

install it using package manager from admin panel.

if you havings problems after install (options not shown etc.) just follow Arantor's instructions below

That would be because the mod is buggy and hasn't been updated for changes in PHP 5.4 (namely deprecation of pass by ref at call time without function signature matching)

this mod is great  and works perfectly but if include that i asking below it's will be locking very real thing...

please anyone knows is there any possible way to make a schedule task to change the amount of fake users in between time periods of the mod online fake users and guest mod..?

because in that mod if we input some figure of the fake users amount it's displays all the time same amount of fake users
until we change it so then it's showing most like fake

so if we can make a schedule task to add amount of random fake users to that mod it's become most like really
same like mod of fake views for topics in that mod we have a schedule task to change amount of views automatically

so please some one knows how to to it or have a mod for it please tell me

Hello,

I installed on SMF ver 2.0.11 using Package Manager without any errors.

Was redircted to ACP -> Configuation -> Modification Settings and the modification settings page was not visible.

I then came here and read through support from the beginning and discovered Arantor's suggestion and followed these instructions:

That would be because the mod is buggy and hasn't been updated for changes in PHP 5.4 (namely deprecation of pass by ref at call time without function signature matching)

Subs-fguo.php

function hooks_fguo_admin(&$admin_location)
Code: (find) [Select]
function hooks_fguo_modification($subActions)
Code: (replace) [Select]
function hooks_fguo_modification(&$subActions)

I cleared my forum's cache, went to ACP -> Configuation -> Modification Settings and saw "Fake Guests & Users Online".

Clicked on that and the settings page is present.

You are using ver. 2.0.12, and are using Simple Portal, and your forum is in another language, so without more information about what is happening;
When you installed:
Did you use the Package Manager?
Did you use advance to emulate a different version?
Did you have any installation errors?

If it installed without errors, can you provide a screen shot of what you do or do NOT see?

Is there anybody still working on this mod?

I got the same problem, installing OK but it didn't show in config in order to set up.

I have it functioning since about April, using SMF ver2.0.11

"Not working" does not tell us what is not working.

It is like taking your automobile to a mechanic, handing him the key and saying "It's broken".

A bit of code I have made use of in the past that might assist the mod's author or ambitious admin.

Code: [Select]
function randomGen($min, $max)
{
    // setup our seed
    srand((float) microtime() * 10000000);
    // Generate the number
    $random = rand($min,$max);
   // Return the number
    return $random;
}
/*adjust these numbers to display a random number within a range-
make sure the low number is on the left.*/

$random_number = randomGen(10,25);
echo "<br/>There are " .$random_number. " visitors online";

Did anyone progress with this bit of code please ?

it is not working just because of may be it is not compatible with the smf 2.0.12.

I have not been able to get this working since smf 2.0.12.
The names remain but the option to add more names in the Modification Settings no longer shows up.

I will investigate further but my understanding is I will have to hunt down the files in the database and add names there but no clue where?
I could not change these settings in the File Manager.

Do you receive any error in the error log or something? How is exactly that URL "not working"?

Tried this mod, installed (with emulation for 2.0.2) without any errors, but no settings to be seen in Configuation -> Modification Settings.

No caching on forum, and /?action=admin;area=modsettings;sa=fguo doesn't work either.

Guessing from the rest of the thread it seems that a solution won't be forthcoming, just wanted to warn other people that this is probably a waste of time.

If anybody know how to get it to work, that would be greatly appreciated, of course.

thanks for this mod i installed it but cannot see the admin settings for this mod
Thanks, but I also have the same issue, mod settings doesn't appear after installation…

I managed to solve this problem with manually adding mod settings code to /Sources/ManageSettings.php,
I'm also using Anti-Spam-Links Mod Settings (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=2404), so I've added "fake users" settings code to the bottom
of "spam-links" settings, here is whole code, after you'll add it, "fake users" settings will be in default mod settings:
Code: [Select]
$config_vars = array(
                // Mod authors, add any settings UNDER this line. Include a comma at the end of the line and don't remove this statement!!                                             

                //'',
                $txt['anti_spam_links'],
                array('int', 'anti_spam_links_nolinks', 'subtext' => $txt['anti_spam_links_zero_disable']),                                                                             
                array('int', 'anti_spam_links_newbielinks', 'subtext' => $txt['anti_spam_links_zero_disable']),                                                                         
                array('int', 'anti_spam_links_nofollowlinks', 'subtext' => $txt['anti_spam_links_zero_disable']),                                                                       
                array('select', 'anti_spam_links_guests', array(&$txt['anti_spam_links_guests_opt0'], &$txt['anti_spam_links_guests_opt1'], &$txt['anti_spam_links_guests_opt2'], &$txt['anti_spam_links_guests_opt3'])),
                '',
                $txt['fguo_admin'],
                array('int', 'fguo_guests'),
                array('int', 'fguo_hidden'),
                array('check','fguo_members_enable'),
                array('large_text', 'fguo_memberlist'),
                '',

        );
The part that was added is
Code: [Select]
                '',
                $txt['fguo_admin'],
                array('int', 'fguo_guests'),
                array('int', 'fguo_hidden'),
                array('check','fguo_members_enable'),
                array('large_text', 'fguo_memberlist'),

Here is how it's looking:
