Can't seem to get this working in WWF 9.68
 
Trying to pull pages from other folders and nothing shws in Active Users.
 
No errors either.
This is what I used...
 
<!-- #include virtual="/mb/common.asp" -->
<%
'If active users is enabled update the active users application array
If blnActiveUsers Then
 'Call active users function
 saryActiveUsers = activeUsers("", test, "test.asp", 0)
End If
%>

Is that the exact code that you have in your page?

If so, you will need quote tags around the second parameter, as you can see in the Custom Pages in Active Users tutorial.

Like so:
<!-- #include virtual="/mb/common.asp" -->
<%
'If active users is enabled update the active users application array
If blnActiveUsers Then
 'Call active users function
 saryActiveUsers = activeUsers("", "test", "test.asp", 0)
End If
%>


Also, you will not be able to see this working if you are looking at the custom page and Active Users page on the same computer, or the same internal network. Even with different browsers.

As the Active Users function will overwrite the custom page entry with the Active Users page entry.

I have two computers on two different IP addresses. :)
 
Weird, the script works if it's in the same folder.
But if I move it to a dfferent folder, it doesn't.
 
Example..
folder/sub/test.asp  -  shows in Active Users
folder2/sub/test.asp  -  does not show in Active Users

Im not sure about that.

I've tried it both of these ways now...
 
strCookiePath = "/mb/"
and
 
strCookiePath = Left(Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_URL"), InstrRev(Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_URL"), "/"))

Im not sure if the Active Users function works off the cookies or not, but i know that if you try to use, say the login function in an area outside of your forums folder, it will fail as by default the cookie is set for the forum folder.

I generally set the cookie to be "/" so that it will work anywhere on my site, for example on this site there are sections which require a user to be logged in.

The reason your users are unable to post maybe due to the conflict in cookies, as they will have on for the forum location ("/mb/"?) and for the root folder ("/").

To fix this, users will either have to remove all their cookies (for your site at the very least)
or log out and then back in again - though I dont know if that option would correct it.
