i am working on a content management system which incorporates mainly php and mysql. I have developed a timed outed out functions which kicks the user out on inactivity. however, if the user is just sitting on a page and never interacts with the page no php request is sent the server and the user is still 'on line' even though they have timed out(this would be the same if they closed the browser). I want to develop a function that detects any page interaction (ie scrolling, clicking, button pressing etc) if these actions are being performed than do -nothing. if they are not being done than start a time limit and once it is reached call a php page and log them out.
Essentially i have an area where you can see online users. I do not want it to show inactive individuals instead i want all inactive individuals to be kicked off.
What is the best way to accomplish this?
thanks a bunch in advance
