Oliver Heine-Bonkowski wrote this excellent PHP script, which can be used to display
summary ring statistics in versions before Ringlink 2.5. Thanks, Oliver!

Sites in Ring Counter
As from release 3.0, the statistics feature includes a more general way to display the number of member sites, which should make the below method redundant.
If you host your own rings and would like to have a site counter display hits, you might try the following solution provided by Gunnar:
Provided that you
- 1) run one or more rings using a self-hosted Ringlink copy
- 2) have access to SSI
it's not very difficult to have the number of active sites automatically displayed on the ring homepage(s).
Check out this link: http://www.ringlink.org/sitecount.shtml
This is the source code of sitecount.shtml:
Number of active sites in Demoring:
<!--#include virtual="/cgi-bin/demo/sitecount.pl?ringid=demo" -->
and this is the sitecount.pl script:
use lib 'lib';
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print scalar @rlmain::activesites;
Because a different solution would be preferable, this solution will not be included in the Ringlink distribution. But some Ringlink users might want to try it.
This program will list all the rings hosted by the ringlink software on a server. Thanks to OpalCat and her hubby for making this available!!
As from Ringlink 3.0, there is a built-in feature for listing the rings that replaces the need for this additional script.

Search via e-mail address
Script uses the e-mail address to find a particular member of a ring and then provides a link to the member site. Use it to try and solve problems with bounced e-mails and to get the correct address.
The script is intended for use by the Ringlink system administrator only, not by individual Ringmasters.
Check path to Perl and if you save the script as emailsearch.pl nothing else needs to be changed. Install the script in the same directory as the other Ringlink *.pl or *.cgi files.
Run the script from your browser and you will get a form to fill in:
- email to search for
- your Ringlink admin password
The script searches the sites.db for that ring and prints the SiteID and SiteName with a link to the site.
Thanks to Ulf Vesterlund for providing this script!
The "Search sites" routine in "Ring admin", that is available as from release 2.1, replaces the need for this script.
for releases before 2.0
for release 2.0 - 2.02
Moving Ring to New Domain
As from release 3.2, the original program includes this functionality.
If one or more rings are moved to other Ringlink systems with different domains, while the previous Ringlink installation is kept up, this module redirects the visitors to the new URL(s). See http://arc.ringlink.org/ringlink-open/msg03041.html for a description how to use it.
