Whos online - Users always online?

Post by desufnoc » Sun May 22, 2016 1:49 am

Hi,

On the index page, who's online -

I would like to make certain members appear online 24 hrs per day... So that they are always online.

Is this possible?

Thank you in advance :)

Not by default, the function uses the lastactive time from each user and puts the users within the limit in the Who is Online list. There is no way to manipulate that by phpBB itself, so you'd need a MOD for that.

Since 3.0 is at an End of Life stage, there is no opportunity to request new MODs anymore, but you're free to search the MOD forums and see if you can find one doing this. Otherwise, you could in time do an upgrade to 3.1 and make an Extension Request for this. :)

You could probably just edit the who is online text in language/en/common.php

'REGISTERED_USERS' => 'Registered users:',

to

'REGISTERED_USERS' => 'Registered users: Bob, Jeff, Mary, ',

Can't quite work out why but there you go :)

That is the most devious, though elegant, solution to a problem I have seen for a long time. Well done.

Prepare to have members wondering why posts/PMs for those "24/7" members aren't replied in a short time.

The problem is probably not my English but you do not want to understand correctly.
