Title: Alert when few global mods online
Post by: Mike Bobbitt on September 11, 2005, 09:48:30 AM
Want to have a visual alert to your administrators when there are less than 4 global moderators online? Just add this code near the top of your index.template.php:

// Staff count
if ($isadmin) {
// Get a count of all global mods currently online
$result = db_query("SELECT COUNT(*) FROM smf_members, smf_log_online WHERE smf_members.ID_GROUP = 2 and smf_members.ID_MEMBER=smf_log_online.ID_MEMBER");
$res = mysql_fetch_array($result);
$staffCount = $res[0];
mysql_free_result($result);

if ($staffCount < 4) {
echo<<<HTML
<h5 style="background: #600; font-weight: bold; color: #fff; text-align: center; margin: 0; padding: 0;">+ There are currently $staffCount Staff online +</h5><table width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
HTML;
}
}


You can change the "if" statement to show this for global mods as well... that way they know when they're "it" so to speak. This may help keep an "even coverage" of your Staff.


Cheers
Mike

Have you created a mod for this?

If not, I`m gonna do it... :P

No, I didn't create a mod... I'm a neophyte to that process unfortunately. If you're willing and able, please go ahead.

Thanks!

Based on the fact that the last post here was over ten years ago, I think that you can draw your own conclusions.

Please do not revive such old topics in the future.  If you want to start a new topic on this issue, please do so in the SMF Coding Discussion board.  Topic locked.
