Where to block members/guests count

Easy, easy question where do I insert the "if admin code from the FAQ" to prevent users seeing how many others are online "as my board is just ramping up and don't want to advertise how few are online)

Members Online.png

I'm thinking this is the correct code to insert to just show to admins and Mods only?
<xen:if is="{$visitor.is_admin} OR {$visitor.is_moderator}">
This content will show to Administrators and Moderators

Brogan your such a genius with the programming. Someday I hope to know half as much as you. I've only been working with coding for the past few weeks. I found the block hours ago. I inserted the code above and just about every spot I can think to no avail thus the questions. I even got it to say "admin only etc" but it still shows to every unregistered Guest. I even tried the coding for registered user only.

lol.... it not show when I delete but that's not what I wanting.
