In progress disallow/disable option hide status

Post by believeinwinx on April 27th 2013, 12:47 am

hey there

is it possible for admins ,somewhere in the adminpanel...... to disallow members to be able to use that option?
the option of hide my online status

meaning, only staff can do it or something///admins mods

i hope it is possible!
because i kinda dislike the fact they can.... i mean, i understand they should have the right to choose what they want
but i dislike the option itself somehow
it makes the online list look smaller than it actually is, you knwo what i mean? because some people dont show up because they are hidden

thank you!

If some people are hidden, you can see them. But, others cannot see them. Will that do?

lol i know that Razz that i can see them
but the other members can't
and guests

which make the daily population look less crowded than it actually is

get my point?

i know its perhaps a silly thing
but i was just wondering if it was possible to disallow that feature for them

i guess its not?

Well you can always set it in a members profile through the ACP to not allow.
But they would always be able to change it back if they wanted to.

Since you are using phpbb2. You can always remove the whole option out of your template and would not even show anymore as a option for members to set.
However,if you did decide to remove it from the template/off the forum all together then this means no one including admin or mods would be able to be hidden.
