  • Asterisk by Username

    When using vBulletin 2.0, why is there an asterisk by some user's names in the Who's Online list?

    These are people who chose to be invisible. However as an Admin, you can still see them. The asterisk is to mark these people to you.

        Yes you can, just do the following:

        In the template "registeradult"
        Change:
        Code:
        <tr>
        	<td bgcolor="#F1F1F1"><normalfont><b>Invisible Mode?</b></normalfont><br>
        	<smallfont>Selecting yes allows you to surf the forums without appearing in the 'Logged In Users' list.</smallfont></td>
        	<td bgcolor="#F1F1F1"><normalfont>
        		<input type="radio" name="invisible" value="yes"> yes
        		<input type="radio" name="invisible" value="no" checked> no
        	</normalfont></td>
        </tr>
        to
        Code:
        <input type="hidden" name="invisible" value="no">
        Doing that will remove the option when soemone registers.

        To change the option for current members run the following MySQL query in phpMyAdmin:
        Code:
        UPDATE post SET invisible=0
        I did not test this but in theory, it should work. As always, backup your databse before you make changes like this.

          You'd need to edit that in the options too, because they could just register and then change the options.
