    I don't know if these are the right words. In vBulletin i was able to change that time so the connected users seemed to be more because they made the check depending of the seconds you inserted in that field.

    It helps a forum a lot to grown at the beginning so, is possible to do that in Xenforo also?

    Search for Online Status Timeout in the Admin CP.

    Done! Thanks!

    I've seen that maximum is one hour... is correct?

    That's correct. I think anything beyond that can cause problems with a larger number of users.

    I see... well I have a large community (almost 100.000 users) in a vbulletin forum and i have set it in 3 hours without any problem. I will migrate that community to xenforo next january. The forums have to compete against social networks nowadays and is better if people "see" a lot of users connected... people attracts people. Would be great if you have that in mind for the next update. Is more a "marketing" trick than something needed but is very useful to attract new users.

    Thanks for your help!
