Suggestion (unless I'm doing something wrong)
This discussion is related to the Who’s Online addon.
edited October 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I noticed that it looks like this addon -- which is otherwise great by the way -- shows a user as being online even if that user has logged out. If there was a way to change this, that'd be great (and more intuitive in my opinion).
what is it set to?
e.g.. 180 seconds that is 3 minutes, until that time has elapsed
a user will be shown as online even if they have just logged out
live with it or adjust it, but not too short or your server will spend its time polling round searching for users rather than doing something more useful.
This could be solved by raising the rate of refresh, but the side effect of a higher rate of refresh is a user still being shown as logged on for a longer period of time after they've logged out.
Ideally, a user wouldn't be shown as being online after X seconds of inactivity (15 minutes would be my preference, probably), *and* they also wouldn't be shown as being online if they explicitly logged out.
The idle thing, is sort of possible by monitoring mouse events. But its not really practical and again would depend on the refresh rates.
This is possible using other technology such as node.js or other push based server software however is well beyond the scope of this plugin.
