confused Weird 'Who is Online' bug/feature

Post by Helladamnleet » Sun Jul 07, 2019 4:53 pm

I noticed it shows who is online in each individual section, or using a certain page. Like, if I'm in Spurious and Das Troll is in Half Baked, I won't see him on the "who is online" list.

youve been taking too many lessons from googlespy and faecesbook with their propensity for stalking

Oh, hush. It's fun to see who else is currently active, and every member can log in as invisible.

Plus, this bug makes stalking easier because I can see who else is reading each THREAD.

It's kind of an odd bug. I fail to see your argument though. It's still reporting the last window opened on the site.

Taking a shit counts are a valid excuse.
.You should implement a 'last request' policy on which the 'ONLINE' status is based off, I am sure phpBB can do that, else if it behaves strangely give the phpBB forums a whirl and see if you can get anything useful from those folks.

I'm 70% sure the option is there. I'm sure I'll dig through settings to satisfy my curiosity at some point this evening.
