Hi @AndyB, I actually want people to be able to see the Members Online Now widget at the sidebar. What I want to prevent is to allow them to view more details about other's activity which is available at /online/. It would be a good idea if you can include that functionality to your add-on or maybe take in consideration this idea for a further add-on.
Hello Andy. I am having an issue with your add-on "Remove Members Online Now 1.2". In my AdminCP User Group Permissions area, I have set the Administrators user group to "Allow" and all other user groups to "No", but the "Members Online Now" sidebar still shows to all user groups. Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

I have these add-ons, created by you, currently installed:

Sidebar Positions
Staff Online Now
Members Online Now
New Profile Posts
Share This Page

Whichever permissions I set it to it does nothing, no matter what it always shows the members online now tab. Any updates on this?

Edit: Fixed

I couldn't get it to work on 1.5.

Can I simply remove or comment out contents of the template that contains that info?

I use PE's stats on the bottom and want to remove stats and users from the sidebar to make room for different things.

If this helps anyone, I commented it out like this. My question is this - will it still cause DB queries when commented out like this? If so, how to eliminate those?

I did this on forum_list template.

        <xen:if is="{$canViewMemberList}">
            <xen:include template="sidebar_online_users" />
Addon is great, but for some reason it didn't work for me on 1.5.

@AndyB - Please update the "find" portion to the code above. I found that the template modification does not work in v1.5.2
