All true. However, you have to be in one of the forums sub topics to see the "who is on line" link. It is not shown on the forum home page. At least not on the forum skin I am using.


Using the "Shopsmith" skin, it appears at the bottom of the home page.

OK, I am using the Shopsmith1 skin and it is not there. Kind of strange that the forum software does not show the same options regardless of the skin you are using.

Thank you, Thank you. I knew that it wasn't working the way I thought I remembered. Clicking "Who Is Online" shows me what I thought had been removed (even in ProSilver which is what I use).

I am embarrassed. When on the web underlined text is often a button that when used will take you somewhere. On the home page "Who Is Online" is underlined. Click on it.

I am not sure I understand though. If you look, you will see that some of the guests are "Replying to a message in Maintenance and Repair" or "Downloading a file", etc.

I thought guests could only read. What I see now seems to indicate that that might be incorrect which would help explain why many guests never post. If they can harvest all the data they need, why should they?

Now I have to get to a computer where I can "login" as a guest and with an IP that is not mine. Hmmm, Might that be a mobile hotspot?
