The Users Online plugin displays a list of users (i.e. a list of their avatars) who are currently online on your site. The list can be displayed either on top of the page body, in the sidebar or in both locations. "Currently online" means a user has shown any kind of activity within the last 5 minutes. It's also possible to configure the maximum number of users to be displayed and to hide admin users from getting displayed in the list of online users. If any of the online users in the list is a friend of the currently logged in user the avatars of these users will be highlighted by a blue border. Admin users are highlighted by a red border.


  1. If you have a previous version of the Users Online plugin installed, first remove the old plugin folder from your mod directory before copying/extracting the new version to your server,
  2. Copy the users_online plugin folder into the mod folder on your server,
  3. Enable the plugin in the admin section of your site,
  4. Check out the plugin settings and modify the configurations according to your liking.
