    XenForo has always allowed members to switch the visibility of their online status, allowing them to browse without announcing their presence to other visitors. However, there are times when a person who normally browses in visible mode might want to quickly switch to invisible mode for a short time.

    Normally, this would involve a trip to the Privacy Settings editor, but it's now possible to switch the system on and off instantly with a single click in your visitor menu.

    SUPER !

    Also the link for "Your Profile Page" is great to have (better visible than discovering for clicking on the username).

    When I switched to invisible it still listed me in the general list (main forum page) but I was not on the detailed list. Is this intentional? If so, it's how I'd like it, because I want to show a busy community on the main page but give members the option to hide their current activity from the detailed list.

    You always see yourself on the main forum page's list - it's forced in there rather than being fetched as part of the rest of the list.

    I'm using it several times per hour at the moment, so I can view particular threads without their posters jumping on me to ask why I haven't responded yet... joy! :)

    what is actually the stuff with "Kier is viewing an UNKNOWN page" ?
    It also showed on other peoples Set-Card saying "viewing unknown page".......

    Are you referring to when someone is not set to invisible? Kier addressed it:

    Even if I don't really use invisible mode very often this will sure make the life of admins much easier.

    Should this be what I tell my low tech users? Because I am unclear what this means.

    I was confirming that the 'unknown page' issue was for members who set their online status as visible. Set to invisible should not show where a member is browsing or what they are doing.
