I want to add a tab to the user profile that shows the logged in user which other users have viewed his/her profile. I want to control this list in Views.
Until recently, I have been using the User Visits module. However, this module does not integrate with Views and is no longer actively maintained.
I started building this using Views, Rules, and Flag. Specifically, I created a flag Viewed profile, and then made a Rule to automatically flag a profile when a user visits another user's profile.
I then created a view of users with two displays.
The first display, Profiles I visited, has a relationship to the Viewed profile flag and simply lists all profiles flagged (visited) by the current user. Easy.
Now I want to create a second display, Users who have visited me. In this case, I want to display all the users who have flagged the current user. However, I can't figure out how to do this.
I can add a relationship, Flags (by any user), but there could quickly be 10,000+ such flags on my site, so I am worried about the performance implications of loading all the flags like that. Also, even if I load all the flags, I don't see how to easily filter them to users who have flagged the current user.
Instead, it seems like it would be easier to create a second flag, User who viewed me, and attach both flags (Viewed profile and User who viewed me) with a rule at the same time when a user visits a profile. However, this seems like unnecessary duplication of information to me, since both flags link the same two users at the same time. Is there a more elegant way to display this data in Views that will not lead to performance issues down the line?
