Ever Wanted to show the number of viewers in the boards on forum index?

Board Viewers mod adds a feature to Board Index to show the number of visitors inside the boards.

-> Adds a text next to each board name, like (21 viewing) or (8 members, 13 guests)
-> Also adds the viewer numbers to child-boards' hover text on boardindex. Like "No new posts (Topics 5, Posts 15,Viewers: 21)"


-> You can enable or disable this mod in "Admin > Features and Options > Layout and Options"
-> You can seperate guest and member numbers.
-> You can enable a popup on clicking the number. This will list the members inside the board.
-> Any user reading a topic inside a board will also be considered as in the board.
-> Displays the numbers both in board index and in message index with child boards.
