Show all online users everywhere

Postby Gledo » 17 Apr 2012, 19:38

I have a Question regarding this article: ... _anywhere/

I have a html file (a sidebar) witch is displayed everywhere in the Board. I added the {LOGGED_IN_USER_LIST} in the html and the online users show up, if I'm on the index page. If I go to a topic, in the sidbar I see the users browsing that topic. But I would like to see all online users no matter where I'm in the board rifht now.

I'm on the index I see in the sidebar User 1, User 2 and User 3
if I go to a topic I only see User 1 cause he is browsing that topic but I would prefer to see User 1, User 2 and User 3 (all online Users) no matter where I'm on the board.

Do I need to create a new function in includes/function.php?

Best regards

Within viewtopic.php you will find this toward the bottom of the file

Code: Select all

page_header($user->lang['VIEW_TOPIC'] . ' - ' . $topic_data['topic_title'], true, $forum_id);

by simply changing the above to

Code: Select all

page_header($user->lang['VIEW_TOPIC'] . ' - ' . $topic_data['topic_title']);

you will then see all users that are logged in when viewing a topic.
