    If you revert your navbar template the link should be there.

    The memory error is due to your PHP settings. You or your host will need to increase the memory_limit setting in php.ini. I recommend 16M.

    You know I am talking for my vb site right?
    And I do not use this templte so I do not have a quick links.

    =======================
    edit:
    Well at least firefox has something good about it.
    the url I was looking for is misc.php?do=buddylist&focus=1
    That is what I was looking for.

    no offense can you give me a URL link or tell me where is "quick links"? If this is template driven I may not have it.

    Well, if you have your who's on-line list turned on, you can see everyone who's on at any given moment, either in the Forumhome page or the Index page. You can specify a font change for staff (hilighted, red, etc), so that the staff members will stand out in the list. That's already available in the standard code.

    Hello again Floris...

    Kinda... but not really.
    Its like a list of people lets say staff of the site.
    and you can see right away if they are online or not.

    really helpfull for guests who need to ask a quick question. so buddies wouldnt work in that sense.

    see what I mean?

    user 1 thru 10
    when this comes on it will show a little light if one of us is on.
    I am not sure how to design the if statement. if $userinfo[number I pick]=$userinfo['action'] show this guys online icon.

    lol does that make the slightest bit of sense?
    It sounds like you want to duplicate the buddy list.

    I wanted it for lets say a buddies page or something to that effect where you can see if the user is actually online. Maybe in the memberinfo template.

    Perhaps this will help explain some of this:

    How To Add A Profile Field To The Postbit

    I do believe we've answered this before. This is not a feature in vB. This requires modifying the code. You can try asking for help with this over at vbulletin.org.

All you need to do is find that code in the postbit template (that decides which dot-color gif to use), and you'll have the code you need to determine if someone is online or not.
    good point I dont have dots on mine that is why I got lost there for a sec.

    got ya thanks.
