  • Possible to disable users' ability to lurk in invisible mode?

    I would only need to do this so that the mods can keep a better eye on some troublesome users, by tracking where they're going on the forums (by keeping the 'Who's Online' screen open in a separate browser window). Or is it possible for mods to see all users accessing the site in invisible mode? Because they're saying that they haven't seen any users lately with asterisks after their usernames (the asterisk denotes that the user is accessing the forum in invisible mode, of course).

    Is it that they really do have the ability to see all users listed (including those in invisible mode), and they just haven't happened to see any invisible-mod users lurking online lately?

    Only admins can see invisible users. The only way to disable the ability for users to be invisible is to...

    Find this in the modifyoptions template:

    Code:
    <tr>
    	<td bgcolor="#DFDFDF"><normalfont><b>Invisible Mode?</b><br>
    	<smallfont>Selecting yes allows you to surf the forums without appearing in the 'Logged In Users' list.</smallfont></normalfont></td>
    	<td bgcolor="#DFDFDF"><normalfont>
    		<input type="radio" name="invisible" value="yes" $invisiblechecked> yes
    		<input type="radio" name="invisible" value="no" $invisiblenotchecked> no
    	</normalfont></td>
    </tr>
    Replace with:

    Code:
    <input type="hidden" name="invisible" value="no">
    In registeradult, find:

    Code:
    <tr>
    	<td bgcolor="{[b][/b]firstaltcolor}"><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>
    Replace with:
    Code:
    <input type="hidden" name="invisible" value="no">
    And then make everyone visible:

    UPDATE user SET invisible=0;

      Sorry to seem a bit dense here, but it's been a rough past few days. Did you mean that I am to replace that entire block of code with that one line you provided above (and for the 'registeradult' template, as well)?



      And then make everyone visible:

      UPDATE user SET invisible=0;

      Where do I run this UPDATE statement?

        In either a telnet connection to mysql or via a web interface such as phpMyAdmin
