• LAST FEW CALLERS

    From Daryl Stout@VERT/TBOLT to ALL on Monday, September 30, 2019 12:51:00
    For some reason, the last few callers list at logon isn't being
    updated. Is there a way I can remove that from the logon sequence??

    There are now 2 logon lists: data/logon.lst and data/logon.jsonl

    The logon.jsonl is the *new* way, which is updated by the latest logon.js (specifically, the call to bbs.mods.logonlist_lib.add()).

    So... when you say it "isn't being updated", I would need to know *which* file isn't being updated.

    Also, is it possible that you're logging in as sysop or a user in quiet mode, in which case, the logons may not be reflected in the logon list?

    So... when you say it "isn't being updated", I would need to know *which* fi

    Usually, when I logged on, I'd see "you're the first caller today";
    but it seems like it's the same data from the day before.

    In c:\sbbs\data, it's logon.jsonl (last updated Oct. 4) -- the
    logon.lst file has 0 bytes (last updated Oct. 7).

    Also, I noted originally that the file directories were under c:\sbbs\data\dirs -- when I looked at the Windows 10 File Explorer the
    other day, I noticed a NEW data\dirs directory under c:\sbbs\data -- and
    I copied the entire file areas over to the "new area". I didn't think
    the directories had changed.

    Also, is it possible that you're logging in as sysop or a user in quiet mode

    I'm logged on as my regular name (entering the sysop password), and
    have the page bell turned off. This is because I'm usually involved in
    ham radio traffic nets in the evenings, or trying to get some sleep. At
    least (for now), the BBS computer is in the front room, and not in my
    bedroom.

    data/dirs is where the filebase data files are stored. It's not new.

    If you're expecting your sysop logins to appear in the logon list, then you'll need to set SCFG->System->Toggle Options->Include Sysop in Statistics to "Yes". Normally, you don't want *your* logons to appear in the logon list.

    OK, I'll go in and zap that other directory. I had just copied the
    foles over.

    I have the Sysop Statistics in data set to NO. Nowadays, with so much
    else outside the BBS, I've reduced my work to mainly reading messages.

    Then you won't see sysop logins in the data/logon.* files (logon.lst logon.jsonl).

    Then you won't see sysop logins in the data/logon.* files (logon.lst DM>logon.jsonl).

    That wasn't the issue. It used to be when I logged on, it'd say
    "You're the first caller of the day", but even a subsequent logon didn't
    show my name". It's as if the daily caller totals aren't being reset
    during the daily maintenance cycle.

    Ah, do you have SCFG->External Programs->Daily Event set to "?logonlist -m"? "jsexec logonlist install" makes this configuration change for you. Perhaps that's all you need.
