IP City Cluster

The IP City Cluster Plugin (IPCCP) generates a geographical cluster map based on where from people access you website.


All IPCCP options are accessible through the corresponding admin options panel. First of all make sure to enter the correct SQL table and key name (if it's anything else than "IP"). There are three ways to generate a new picture: - pressing Redraw in the admin panel - calling an URL with the addition of ?recluster=true - using the scheduling feature (which automatically generates the cluster map after a specified amount of time - or to be precise, it automatically generates the cluster map, by the next call IPCCP-call after the user specified time. But give the amount of spammers and bots that are crawling over public sites. this should be close the the specified time itself. Doesn't it give you some satisfaction, that they are actually doing some good for you :) Just be aware of the CPU time required for the generation before scheduling IPCCP too often (or adding your terabyte long logfile).

Know Issues

The new "all cities per cluster" feature is not supported by all browsers. actually it's probably only supported by Safari (or Konquerer or the like) and probably it's not correct (X)HTML either. But it sure looks cool when it works :)

[Update] It also works in IE7! Maybe it's only Firefox that got trouble displaying multiline titles?
