    Live example:


    (Example of Members Online block )


    (Example of Members Online block with Show Avatar option enabled)


    (Example of Options page)


    (Example of User Group Permissions)


    • Immediate update to the Members Online block.
    • Who sees the Members Online block is controlled by User Group Permissions.
    • Usernames sorted alphabetically.
    • Number of usernames easily adjusted by limiting the Hours in the Options page.
    • Members who have "Show online status" unchecked will only be seen by staff.
    • Members waiting for registration approval will not be shown.
    • User Group Styling will highlight usernames.
    • All phrases start with membersonline_ for your convenience.
    1. Download membersonline_v1.9.zip and unzip it.
    2. Upload the Andy directory to your server, the correct location is library/Andy.
    3. From your Admin Control Panel, go to the Install Add-on page.
    4. Upload the addon-MembersOnline_v1.9.xml file.
    5. Click the Install Add-on button.

    This add-on requires the Sidebar Positions add-on located here:




    If you change the Hours, you will need to also edit the membersonline_title phrase to reflect the hours in the Options.

    Title Link

    This field is used to enter an optional link. For example you can link the title so that when it's clicked the Members page is displayed.


    To create an index where you can show what each user group color means, enter the following example code into the "Index" field of the Options page.
    <span style="color:red;">Administrator</span> - <span style="color:#176093;">Member</span>
    Show Avatars

    Show Avatars instead of links. This option is more suitable for smaller forums so the Members Online block is not to large.

    Q: Will this work with other frameworks?

    Super easy to install and it adds the ability to add some color on the sides with the avatars of the members. Other members respond well to seeing a picture of someone they know, this encourages folks to add their own custom avatar too!

    Migrating our forum from vB to XF, this is another must-have add-on that our members were used to. The INDEX feature is very handy for color-coding different usergroups and easy to implement with this add-on.

    Everytime I need something, AndyB has an add-on. Just wanted to hide "members online" to guests in sidebar but this does that, plus things I didn't know I wanted as well. Thanks!
