  • Who's Online Location

    I'm having a bit of an issue with the Who's online location. As an admin, I have all 3 location permissions set to yes in the Admin Usergroup, so I should be able to see where a User is. However, For some users, when I look at Who's online the Location is blank. Is there a setting that governs whether a user shows up in Who's Online? Are admins hidden by default? I notice that if I view guests browsing I can see what thread they're on, so it must be something I'm missing. My forum is running on vb 5.4.1 on PHP 7.1/Apache/MySQL 5.7. All required extensions are installed and the forums work fine other than this issue.

    Thanks.

    Some entries in Who's Online do show up as blank. It's been an issue for a long time now.

    Reported in fact by myself: http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBV-14153

      Added my vote to the issue. They may be minor, but these are the sorts of things that make vB feel less refined than other software packages out there. Might not be huge fnctionalityproblems, but they are perception problems.

        It's certainly one that's niggled me for a while now...hence me reporting it in the first place. I'll ask if it can be brought up in the bug reviews to see if we can gain any traction for it.

          I hope you can. I'm not sure what the development priorities are these days, but it might be a good idea to take a few minor point releases to hammer on some of those long-unresolved issues.

            We are now 10 months later. Have any of you heard back if this is in the pipeline to be resolved?

              There has been no change to this that I am aware of. It is not seen as a high priority at this time.

              Any updates would be in the bug report first so as there's nothing in there, there's nothing to report, sorry.

                Can anyone explain why this matters? The less I know about members, especially EU members, the better.
