Is there a way to track the number of members who post each month? How about the total number of posts (regardless of the number of people who post) each month? without hand-counting of course.

These would be good additions to the Dashboard, would give nice info to compare with Daily and Monthly Active Users.

I don't think there is anything currently built in to do this, but my immediate thought is to utilise the Charts module with a custom module that does and logs the counting on a daily basis.

When you say 'posts' what are you referring to? Comments, Forum posts or topics? Or Blogs or other items?

Thanks

Paul - all of the above.... comments, forum posts, blogs, events, wherever a member could post something. In my ideal world, I’d be able to have all these separated out but I’d even just like to know a grand total each month if possible.

Are you looking to have these as options in the dashboard? Getting DS counts by day/month as dashboard options should be doable.

"DS counts"? I'm not sure what that is, but getting a count of the posts by members by the month would be most helpful to me. I don't really need it by the day, although I can't speak for other people. And that would be fine to put it on the dashboard page.

Is this information already available on JR? If so, where would I find it? I'm still interested in getting the number of posts each month but this would be helpful also.

DS = 'DataStore'. Its Jamroom speak for the database table structure we developed for storing most Jamroom item information. Sorry for the confusion.

No, the information isn't available already and might need a custom module developing. Can you submit a Custom Project Form - https://www.jamroom.net/form/project_overview - detailing exactly what is needed? We can then assess and quote for it.
Thanks

Upcoming module releases add daily and monthly dashboard counts for 'DataStore' modules that include blogs, comments, groups etc.
Hopefully that will cover what you are wanting.

Paul - This might cover it. Do you know when this might happen? Would there be a way to see who are the people who are posting as well? KK above mentioned something about Daily and Monthly Users... is that info already there somewhere?

Core 6.5.0 which includes these dashboard option should hopefully be released within the next few days, after final testing. The new option will only show daily and monthly counts, and not who has posted.
