How to Test OnlineNow for users

To test OnlineNow :

1.Open a browser and log in

2.Open another browser and log in as another user

3.Open another browser and log in as another user

4.Refresh the first browser and clear the cache

5.Make the other users you logged in as browse a thread then refresh the page.

The user needs to do something like browse a thread to register as online. If the User just gets online but does nothing it will take the time it takes to refresh to check again. If the User is on a mobile and the mobile enters sleep mode from inactivity, the user will appear to go offline.

Or ask your users to browse threads and clear the cache and refresh the page. To allow guests to see users online, change the settings in the dashboard.

The most important thing is to clear cache and refresh often.

    I have not tested this using 2.2 so I can't tell you what could be wrong in your setup.

    700+ downloads and only few complaints tells me it works for most people. It works for me and it works for peregrine. He also did the same thing as above to test for more users.

    At the moment as soon as I try to save any setting through the dashboard its not really saved permanently. I refresh the page and everything is unchecked and empty again. Nothing in the error log so far.
