At my XOOPS site I use the default Who's Online block, however it only ever shows members who login, and never shows guests.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I may correct this thanks?

Make the who's online block visible for anonymous users (or it will never load and record how many visitors are online).

Hello,

i have done this, but now anonymous users can see that i'm logged in, click my name, and see my emailaddress. It links to userinfo.php?uid=xxx and that is not what i want.
I Only want members to see this kind of information.

Is it possible to let an anonymous user see how many people (users and guests) are online, but not the link with userinfo?

Grtz, Robbie

Agreed. To summarise what I think poehoes is saying, I also would appreciate having non-members seeing the number of members online, but not a link to the member user info without logging in.

Members can elect to hide their email address from public display poehoes under their profile. Hope this helps.

This is true (i tested the possibilities), but then members can't find each others' emailaddress any more! And thats very important.

Maybe this is a block that is only useful for members, and i should disable it again for anonymous users, but it would be nice when you're not logged in you can see that there are other members online. And that guests (which for us are potential members) can see that there is more...

When members can't email each other (and sometimes members prefer it that way for privacy / less spam reasons), I find my memberbase is happy to use Personal Messages (Inbox) to reach out and communicate.
