I believe I have already responded to this in a previous post (re: what features I do/don't want to see in future versions). I do however always accept patches, and if not merged into the offical code, most will be placed in the contrib section of the ftp site for any others that may be interested.
Would you mind to clarify the situation and point the list to
the features you would/won't like to see in The Webalizer ? :-)
- Hi Fabien,
I also think this is a great idea. To me it looks like the Webalizer has
been written for IT specialists giving a heap of info that's very useful
for them (Brad even says so in some docu) but it would be really cool to
add information required by the marketing dept. And yes, I know this is
a difficult term in a techie list, sorry ;-)
My favourites in order to achieve this orientation are for example:
- CSS support (maybe after some time even some standard stylesheets will
be available, like themes)
- just plain graphics, nothing like 3D effects, borders, shadows etc. I
attach a screenshot of a counter we once realized but then had to
abandon it since it was written in pl and killed off every server :( I
thought the design was nice & clean.
- being able to select which data to show (only pages and visits are
really needed for marketing purposes - Kbytes, hits, files not.)
- time spent per page (we resolved this as being the time between
request for one page and the next; the last page was left out from the
calculation of the average since obiously there was no "next page"-data.
When calculating the total time for a page, the average was assumed for
the last visit, too.)
Well, just a few ideas; I'd be glad if you (and the agency you're
working for) find them useful.
