That one doesn't work for me. I only see my own status, the other statusses remain portal only.

the only thing that my trick does is to replace the "doing something unknown" statement with the actual action that the user is doing.
If there is any other action defined (like "portal") it never gets to my little but of code.
I'd say it's a poorly coded action for whatever portal you are using.

I'm using Simple Portal. Recently updated to 2.3.5. Never had any problems with it.

What I would also like is a change in that silly "Nothing, or nothing you can see" message. It would make more sense to say "Ant is messing around in admin" or something like that, if it is the case, rather than getting all spooky about it.

Did anyone find a way of doing this yet?

Yes, I did!  I made the edit some time ago and I love it!  However, my regular members complain that they still see the "nothing or nothing you can see" message while I'm doing Admin stuff, which is why I quoted Antechinus' post in particular.

I would also like my members to see something a little more friendly when I'm admin'ing, however, if this was indeed fixed in the first post along with all the other actions that this edit has revealed for me so wonderfully, then I have clearly missed something, but I suspect you misunderstood me  ;)

Yup, that's different to the OP. The OP only deals with the "unknown action" message, not with the other one.

Oops, sorry, sabrinova, I misread your question (that's the problem, reading from a phone).

I'd say you have to check the list for the admin and other actions and remove the permissions check

Thanks :)

Is there no way of just changing the text?

you can change the text "nothing, or nothing you can see", but that would change every use of it, not just the admin instance.

This might be a silly question but what file do I download to make this change? I haven’t done a Manual mod before, I thought this might be a good one to start off with.

lol....   actually, not that silly a question.
I started to write back for you to read the OP and realized that I had forgotten to indicate the filename in the OP. 'DOH!

fixed in the OP...  but the file is Sources/Who.php

Some portals may interfere with the action list.... they assume that you are always in the portal unless you are doing something specific.
