Who's online

Postby Roboframer » Sun Mar 08, 2009 2:34 am

I click on 'who is online' now and again - you can see what people are doing/looking at, and you can also see what guests are viewing.

Tonight I saw a guest was 'viewing member profile' Is that right?

I don't mean did I see right, I mean can just anyone view a member's profile without registering?

Edit - just logged out and could not access the member list - so how come a guest could be shown as viewing a member's profile?

John ,( aka Roboframer )- I just checked who is on line and got this....

So does this mean that it only shows others on line, but doesn't count me?

A slight anomaly there, the the who's online part of the forum does not differentiate between 'attempting' to view a profile and actually viewing the data, it merely reporting that a user is in the 'viewing member profile' area.

When guests go to view a profile, they are presented with a login box while still remaining on the viewprofile page.

It's like Joe Bloggs walking into Fort Knox. Yes, it is true, and it could be reported that Joe is in Fort Knox, but only in the reception area. He's going no further.

The forum does not continuously monitor the users' activities. Instead it takes a snapshot at intervals. So what you are seeing Keith is the status that pertained at the last 'snapshot'.
