Thanks Oldiesmann.  :)

The trouble is I tried to find sources/Who.php a while ago, but couldn't.  :(

However I'm older by a couple of weeks now and maybe wiser, I'll try to find it again tomorrow.   ;)


kat

Just in case you're not familiar with the terminology, he means that Who.php is in the "sources" directory. ;)

I've got a red badge, he's got a green one... lol

Sorry K@   :-[

Sources/Who.php

Find
$context['show_by'] = $_SESSION['who_online_filter'] = 'all';

Replace
$context['show_by'] = $_SESSION['who_online_filter'] = 'users';

Unfortunately the above did not work.

I also tried putting in 'members' as well as 'users' but still no luck.  :(
I checked and double checked I did it correct and I am sure I have.

Any more ideas please.   :)

I'm a bit busy, today, doing the ol' "Ferry the demented mother-in-law around the country doing Christmas crap" thing, today.

Just had a few minutes to nip in, to see what's been going on.

If you don't get any response, before then, I'll have a fiddle-around, on the morrow, to see what I can figure out.

SDMCC,

Did you try logging out and logging back in while testing that?  I get the idea that there is a cookie involved somewhere.  If this change corrects it, you might need a new cookie.  If not, it would be necessary to learn more about hunting down that value and getting it out of the cookie.

I'm not sure about that, I'll give it another go and log out and log back in while testing.

I often find it useful, if I have another brand of browser running on the same desktop, to fire up another user account to test stuff while I work.  Please let us know what you discover.  I hope someone will be able to help you sort this out.

I have done as suggested (I think) but no luck I'm afraid.  :(

I made the changes using IE and then and then checked my efforts on Firefox, is that what you mean or should it be Firefox and the IE?  :)

kat

Apologies. I forgot about this one.

However... I really can't see why the edit that Oldies suggested didn't work. :(

SDMCC

Oh never mind it's not the end of world.  :)
I might post again some time in the future about it, but I don't want to appear to be bumping. Will that be okay?

kat

Yeah, for sure. People only get miffed, if you bump within twenty four hours.

I'll try it out, myself, on my test site, in the morning, to see what I can figure out. :)

SDMCC

Guests that have been assigned to show and are genuinely online are fine, it's those pesky 'ghost guests spambots', although they show as being offline they are still a nuisance and seem to upset the counter.  :)


kat

Ah. I was only thinking of removing the guests from the display. If you want rid of them, entirely, just prevent them from browsing the forum, as I described, above.
