    Any chance of modifying the structure of the who's online, for large/busy sites you can be sifting through hundreds of pages because of the way it is layed out, is it possible to get a more 'tabled' like view?

    I have a feeling we will find out what a busy xf site looks like real soon, maybe tomorrow. Many will join this site. :)

    True, true, the site has already attracted many visitors and not even been live for 48 hours, should be very busy tomorrow :)

    I think a good idea here would be to surface the most important member IE developers, admins, mods, then anyone your following who is also following you, then whoever else you are following then whoever is following you... Finally everyone else up to a limit... Then a link to view everyone on a full page?

    Just my idea...

    I guess shortening the list would be better: It should list -let's say- 50 online users sorted by the last action timestamp in the descending order and after the list, it should say "and 102 others." just like Facebook. Clicking the 102 others should expand the list or list all of them in a modal window maybe.

    Edit: I've realized Like feature has this already. That way it can be easier to implement.

    Thats quite clever yeah, but primarily tabled :p
    I see what you mean though:
    Staff: See everyone on who's online, IP, location on site etc
    Regular Users: View users that they are following(and that user is also following back), + location on site

    On a platform like vBulletin (I still use vB 3.8) we had these options:

    - Select which data to show: Everything, Members, Guest, Searchbots
    - Sort on Username, Activity, Location

    Xenforo offers nice functionality like this for threads called [Thread Display Options] in a slidemenu. Since this kind of functionality is already implemented for thread overviews, maybe the same (with different options) can be used for the Current Visitors overview?

    As it stand now, the overview is not sortable or filterable in any way indeed.
