http://xenforo.com/community/threads/show-online-status.14176/#post-186836 BUUUUUUT!!!!!!!! this won't stop users to change itthey'll be able to send an post request, / change the code of http://xenforo.com/community/account/preferences and set them invisible you'll need also an addon which disables this, if you want to have it 100% secure!
I found this by using the search function: remove show online status
try this one
if you don't have tms installed, you'll need to change the templates (see readme.html)
the addon will:
1. set all users to visible while the installation
2. remove the checkbox from http://xenforo.com/community/account/preferences and the form from the visitor navigation
3. manipulate the input when the user saves his preferences and set the variable for the "visibility" always to true
if you change ONLY the template, some smart user would only need to include the missing checkbox or the variable via a hidden input field and he wouldn't be visible again
I did this by template modification. I think this is OK done BEFORE a forum goes live. If you have a live forum, the addon is best because it toggles the visibility to "always true". As a newcomer I suggest you install the TMS; it is great for keeping track of changes. As you learn more, you will get sucked into making changes because you'll always find something you want changed. You will wind up using the TMS for most everything, but you still need to create templates for some jobs, and you WILL get deep into styling properties at the very least.
XenForo = changes made just because you can
Oh this is a little toy that I'm going to enjoy
Is this plugin working for 1.2?
This should be core.
Try this one, which is marked as working in 1.2.
