Converting Visitor to Member

We are planning to build a module that caters to site visitors and makes it extremely easy for them to become members.

The first step is to find the best way to intercept a visitor accessing the site. The 'session_started' listeners are invoked multiple times on a single HTTP message from a single visitor (e.g. press F5 and the jrUser listener is invoked repeatedly). This leads me to think that this event is not the proper spot to insert a visitor conversion UI.

If there is an ideal spot to detect a visitor's first access of the site (the initiation of a visitor session) so that we can offer them a convenient conversion to member I would appreciate the insight.

'session_started' only fires once in the flow of loading a URL.

Maybe if you have some ajax on the page and are opening several URL's on a single page, that could cause it perhaps.

You could set a flag or a cookie or a session variable to prevent multiple whatever-you-want-to-do's happening per visit.

There's the 'router_init' event in router.php right after the session_init in flow of things. or 'parse_url' is just before the session start stuff.

NOTE: router_init is a new event in Jamroom Core 6.4.0+
