Sidebar change for Members Online listing


Well-known member
I searched here but the terms are a bit too vague.

What I'm looking to do is change the sidebar block where members online are displayed.

How it currently displays: there is a Members Online Now section, which is broken into three subsections: 1) People You Follow, 2) Members, 3) Online Now. Due to how the staff wants the members displayed, we are listing all of the member names of those who are online. Since we have few sections available for public viewing, the sidebar extends way down.

What I would like to do is this: create a block below the forum listing, duplicate the Members Online Now heading, but move subsection 2) Members to this block, leaving 1) and 3) where they are at in the sidebar.

I have tried it, but my few attempts managed to mangle the layout. It can't be that difficult can it? I'm wondering if anyone else may have done it and can give a few pointers.
