View Full Version : user online?
Hey, what about this for a hack? Since thread pages on vB are dynamic, right, so why dont we have a feature where a small "user is viewing forums" icon is shown whenever taht eprson is online. Something like the ICQ thing.
I like that idea! I don't think it would be that hard to program either, would it? Do you mean like have an icon below their username if they are online?
Exactly! I'm sure somebody is smart enough to do this.
Hope it comes out in the next release.
I think it would be kinda useless, as you can see this on the main page. Would bog down the mysql querys too.

I highly doubt that, but I think that it should be put into its own template so that people could include it if they wanted.
Actually, it wouldn't slow down a query at all - since you wouldn't actually need an extra query, except for the template. - It already has to serve up each user's profile, so just grab the lastactivity variable, and do a little time manipulation :D
Quite simple actually... (sorry, just thinking out loud)
I think it'll be a usefull add-on! Maybe I'll try to hack it in...First I'll have to get the board working on my site :(
Yeah - thanks everyone. I think this would be a valuable add on in the next version. However, I think John and james should focus on customer service before preparing the next upgrade for us.
