Statistics and counters: Simple user Online class

count_users() == 1) { 
    echo « There is  » . $visitors_online->count_users() .  » visitor online »; 
} 
else { 
    echo « There are  » . $visitors_online->count_users() .  » visitors online »;

Important: You need to create database connection and select database before creating object!

    If you have high traffic web site, it might happen that you receive lot of traffic

    This function tryes to get real IP address.
