A portlet that uses the Piwik open source analytics system to display how many people are using your Plone site at the moment
The Piwik open source analytics system ( is used to store the usage data.

How to get it working

 * You need to have access to a working Piwik installation. Create a new site in the Piwik admin UI and provide the view permission to anonymous users.
 * Add the Piwik Tracking Tag to Javascript web stats support field at /@@site-controlpanel
 * You need to make a small change at the tracking tag adding the line "var site_id = X;", replacing X with your Piwik site_id For example, if in the Piwik code you have: var piwikTracker = Piwik.getTracker(pkBaseURL + "piwik.php", 6); then site_id = 6 in your case
 * Install the "Online users" add-on from the Plone control panel
 * Add the "Online users" portlet from the manage portlets form in the context you want it to appear. At this step you can configure the session timeout in minutes: The time of inactivity after which a user is no longer considered to be online.
