I have been trying to develop user's status(online or offline ) for a site. I have searched a lot on the net. even created thread here to ask question related to this topic.
so finally i got conclusion is that there are two methods to show user's status on the site
1)timestamps(on which i have been working lately)
If we use timestamps its working great. but problems comes when user left the browser as it is without logout. or before the period we are considering to check user's last_access time. than over there i think timestamps has got limitation(i think so)
so my question-
1) what is the best method is to show user is online or offline for the whole site not for the particular page?
2) if session is good/bad method than how it ll be god/bad to create this module?
i want to listen comment specially for session. because i have trying this with using timestamps. so i would like to know about to crate this module with session/drawback using session?
thanks in advance.
