    Features:
    • User group permissions determine who can view the Search Log results.
    • Result Counts greater than 100 are shown as 100+.
    • Logs successful and unsuccessful searches.
    • Search data can be saved for any amount of time.
    • Search results can be limited to any number of rows.
    • Robots are excluded from being able to make a search.
    • All phrases start with searchlog_ for you convenience.
    Installation:
    1. Download searchlog_v2.8.zip and unzip it.
    2. Upload the Andy folder to your server. The correct location is library/Andy.
    3. From your Admin Control Panel, go to the "Install Add-on" page.
    4. Upload the addon-SearchLog_v2.8.xml file.
    5. Click the Install Add-on button.
    How it works:

    When a guest or member makes a search, the search criteria is saved to a table called xf_search_log. When the admin clicks the Search Log link, the data saved in the table is displayed.

    Search Log direct link:

    If for any reason you would like to access the Search Log directly from the address bar, use this URL:
    Code:
    http://www.site.com/search/searchlog/
    
    User group permissions:

    Be sure to allow the Administrator and any other user group you would like to be able to view the search log.

    Robot Names:

    The Robot Names field located in the Options page is used to restrict robots from making searches.

    Database modifications:

    This add-on creates a table called xf_search_log.
