Live-view of members online/activity (like Discord)

Post by Holger » Thu May 16, 2019 8:55 am

Hi there,

I would love an extension that lists the members in a column at the right (or left) side, similar to how Discord does.
In general it is just a different layouting of the "Who is online"?!
The Discord-list is updated live/frequently and shows the avatar, username and status, it also shows if the user is online using an mobile device (using the Discord app) or not.

It would also be cool to somehow show if they are currently active or how long they have been inactive.
Lets say: a green dot for active in the past 5 minutes, a yellow dot for no activity in the past 5-10 minutes and a red dot for not active for over 10 minutes. But maybe it is better to use the native function of phpBB, also to remove the users from the list just as in the "Who is online".
Also, it would be cool to have the users grouped by Admins, Mods and Members?
And more: it would be cool to add shortcuts to PM and so on when hovering over a member in the list or add a three-dot popup-menu.

Would this be possible to do?
I have a screenshot of Discord, but cannot add attachments here.

Of course it would be possible - however whether it would be practical is another question.

One thing that would not be practical to do that Discord does would be to list all members whether they were online or not. Could you imagine this site listing all 403k members?

The major problem, especially on a large board, would be the possible server load updating the users activity

I would restrict to members online, like "Who is online".

Edit: I think "Who is online" viewonline.php does reload already?

Seems your router, node or backbone have dns-issues. For me all is loading perfect...
May clear all your local browser-caches and restart your router..
