    Hi there World,
    My first steps in PHP hacking.. I incorporated a PHP referes script into WordPress, you can see it live at http://www.tplace.org/

    I've had one up for a while too, based on the ncyoung refererLib package. Code's here:
    It also includes a function that'll keep track of who comes to your page via Google and displays the query strings they use to get there.
    The code on there is a little outdated - I'm migrating over to the current CVS version this weekend, and I'll be uploading a new copy with the following fixes:
    * Now uses WP's database connections, so you don't need to plug in your username, password, etc.
    * Code cleaned up
    Since we've got Smarty templates in CVS now, I'll get it turned into a plugin at some point soon.

    Ok, I've uploaded the version with the updates decribed above. PHP source is now located at:
    Enjoy, and let me know if you have any bug reports.
    (note - the database getting huge if you get thousands of hits a day is a feature, not a bug :) )

    I copied the code and saved it as refererLib.php. Can someone tell me what code I would have to put elsewhere to have the referrers show up on my page?
    I'm looking to have something like "Last 5 Referrers" and then a list, but since I don't know php, I don't know what to put on my page to have it show up. Would it be include (refererLib.php)? and then the list would show?
    Thanks very much.

    I get no output ;_;
    I have uploaded the referrerlib as referrers-include.php, and in referrers.php:
    $list = topRefererList(5,"global");
    foreach ($list as $link){
    print "

  8. ".$link."
  9. ";
    No output though :/ Using WP from CVS (2 days old now)

    ben: your installation instructions may be great for php geeks, but for those of us with lesser skills they are difficultto follow. I think there are steps you take for granted. My suggestion would be to try to write your instructions so a 12 year old could follow them.
