XF 1.5 Hide Super Administrator online status


Active member
Whenever I untick "Show online status" on the Super Administrator account and save it, it becomes ticked again when I reload the user. How can I hide this user's online status in the online users list?

If you are doing that in the ACP for another administrator, are you entering your password in the field at the top of the page before attempting to save?

I'm doing it with the same Super Admin account and entering the password. It says the changes have been saved, but then they haven't.

However all other checkboxes in the Privacy tab tick/untick as expected when saved.

Thank you, that suggestion helped me narrow it down to the User Essentials add-on causing this. So I'll continue the discussion in the relevant area.
