Re: Last users to view profile

Jeff Sayre


Data on who viewed a given user’s profile is not stored in the database. To accomplish this task, you would have to write your own plugin and add at least one new table to the DB.

However, depending on how the plugin was coded, on even a moderately active site, this/these new table(s) could grow to a very large size. For instance, if a given site was not set up to disallow viewing of users’ profiles unless the viewer was logged in, all sorts of useless visitor hits would be encountered–unknown actual people viewing a profile, search engine bots visiting a profile for purposes of indexing, etcetera.

Of course, the solution would be to code the plugin to ignore those type of hits and only log actual logged in member views. But then the number of true views would be greatly undercounted.
