  • Unknown Location in Who's Online.

    Hi,

    Not very important, but I just looked at my Who's Online and saw this:

    Guest Unknown Location:</forum/moderator.php?action=useroptions&userid=497&>

    Just this one Guest was displayed this way: the others were displayed correctly. Just thought is was a bit confusing.

    Keep up the good work with V3!

    Someone is likely checking out whether they can access admin/mod functions. From the looks of it, they were viewing someone's profile and saw the "Admin options: User profile" link and clicked it. You shouldn't have to worry, the only people given access to that page are admins, usergroups which you set "Can access control panel", and moderators.

      I've seen this too, but it's scared the bejesus out of me since I see guests that happen to have my session id! I don't know whether or not they're actually hijacking my session or if it's just a bug with how information is stored in the session table or what, but it's got me panicking on more than one occassion...

        It is most likely because the options are out of order on the link and the Who's Online code can't figure it out. Instead of worry about it and use a lot of resources, it just defaults to unknown location.
