Hello,

No. It is not possible to hide their online status because it is designed or made for the members who have capabilities to hide their online status. It is one of rights of each members in using forumotion. Smile

The problem is that, even if you remove the option, you would need to manually change the online status of every member who has theirs set to "hide". With a large board, that would be a LOT of work.

Plus, someone who knows what they're doing can reset the status to "hide", even if you completely remove the option in templates.

I guess what I'm saying is, you're best off worrying about things that you can control -- and this isn't one of them. Wink

yeah but even if they did that admins still have the option to see hidden members.

Dunno i kind of always took that out when fist setting a forum up, so what members cant see from the get go ,most of the time they will not even known it existed.

But anyway thats where we stand on it..
It can be taken out of the template if you want..
Only if using punbb or phpbb.. take it or leave it Smile
