Purpose of the Mod

This mod inserts a connection counter at the bottom of your home page. It counts successful connections as well as attempts to connect to blocked accounts.
If a user stays on your site for 5 days, this obviously only counts as one connection! It is therefore not a visit counter!
However, you can use it as a visit counter on one or more pages of your site by inserting a few lines of code (see below)


At first use, the program creates a table named tng_hits in your database.
Each time a user of your site successfully connects, the table is updated with the name of the page (here "connect"), the user name, his number of connections and the date of his last connection.
It also records connection attempts to accounts that you have blocked.
Each time you visit the home page of your site, the counter is updated with the total number of connections of all users who have logged in.

You can easily use the existing code as a visit counter on your pages.
For example, you want to know how many visits your "Relationship" page receives (this is a tab on the main page)

  • Edit your "relateform.php" file
  • add these five lines below at the bottom of the file, just before the last line which is "tng_footer( xxxx);"

//====== begin of code =====
include_once ("tng_conn_counter.php");
$xxpagexx = "parente";
count_page_user("$xxpagexx", "");
$visites = get_total_visits("$xxpagexx");
 echo "<center> Visits for this page : <b>" . $visites . "</b></center>" ;
//======= end of code =======

Don't forget to modify the page name ($pagexx = "....";) if you use the counter on another page!
You understand that if you copy this code on different page of your site, the page name must be unique for each page...
Don't forget that if you copy this code on a frequently visited page (for example getperson.php) your counter will quickly panic (Well... It still depends on how many people visit your site...)
if you are a little PHP-DIY, you will quickly understand what you can make with this little table...
See the result :
page "relationship"

A TNG v 12.0.2 installation in working order.

IMPORTANT : Before installing

Before installing, it is judicious to make a backup copy of the following files (they will be modified by this mod)::

your complete "templates" folder (unless you prefer to make a backup copy of each of the 18 "index.php" files separately :-()


Unzip the received file directly in the "mods" sub directory of your TNG installation. You do not have to create the table manually. It is created automatically at the first execution. On the other hand for the uninstall, it is necessary to manually delete the tng_hits table (It's a very little table : it may stay...)
If demanded, i'll write the code to delete it semi-automatically...


  • Uninstall and Delete the current Mod.
  • Keep your tng_hits table
  • Proceed as for an installation with the new Mod

Known Problems

None at this day...

In the event of a problem

  • Try using the Mod Manager Remove capability
  • Open an issue in the [TNG Community Forums]
  • Copy the backup of the affected files back to your TNG directory
