Hi again,

In Board Statistics, there are 3 sub stats:
  • Who's Online
  • Birthdays
  • Board Statistics
I need to add one additional sub statistic.


I tried editing following :
index.php
//added
$templatelist .= ",index_customstats";

$customstats = '';
if($mybb->settings['showindexstats'] != 0)
{
	eval('$customstats = "'.$templates->get('index_customstats').'";');
}

Home » Template Sets » Default Templates » Edit Template: index_boardstats
<tbody style="{$collapsed['boardstats_e']}" id="boardstats_e">
{$whosonline}
{$birthdays}
{$forumstats}
{$customstats}
<tr>

And added a template under Index Page Templates, named index_customstats
<tr><td class="tcat"><span class="smalltext"><strong>Custom Statistics</strong></span></td></tr>
<tr>
<td class="trow1"><span class="smalltext">
Some info<br />
Some info<br />
More info
</span>
</td>
</tr>


But Custom Statistics does not appear on index page. Any guidance pls?
It should works if you call your template before the $boardstats is called.
Also, to cache your template, you should register your additional template before the global.php is called.

This worked, Thank you very much once again man.

By this statement, do you mean:
define('THIS_SCRIPT', 'index.php');

$templatelist = "index,index_whosonline,index_whosonline_memberbit,forumbit_depth1_cat,forumbit_depth2_cat,forumbit_depth2_forum,forumbit_depth1_forum_lastpost,forumbit_depth2_forum_lastpost,forumbit_moderators";
$templatelist .= ",index_birthdays_birthday,index_birthdays,index_logoutlink,index_statspage,index_stats,forumbit_depth3,forumbit_depth3_statusicon,index_boardstats,forumbit_depth2_forum_lastpost_never,forumbit_depth2_forum_viewers";
$templatelist .= ",forumbit_moderators_group,forumbit_moderators_user,forumbit_depth2_forum_lastpost_hidden,forumbit_subforums,forumbit_depth2_forum_unapproved_posts,forumbit_depth2_forum_unapproved_threads";

$templatelist .= ",index_customstats";

require_once './global.php';
and
$customstats = '';
if($mybb->settings['showindexstats'] != 0)
{
    $stats = $cache->read('stats');
    eval('$customstats = "'.$templates->get('index_customstats').'";');
}
Yep, something like that.

What I meant by this

is

or about line #312 - #328 (by default).

MyBB cache the templates in global.php, so we should register any custom templates before it is called or included, otherwise, it'll adds additional query to the page.

BTW, is there any reason why you prefer editing core file than using a plugin?
I am unaware of such a plugin that adds additional stats this way. There are few plugins out there that appends boardstats but I needed to add separate stats.

I also am a MyBB noob to even think of making my own plugin for this purpose.
