    Is there any way with this new set up, to see who is online? On the old site, the main forum page had everyone listed at the bottom, alphabetically, who was online. That way I could see who was online, and if there was someone I wanted to talk to. I dont see any way to do that now, other than open each sub-forum and see who's browsing each forum.

    I know I've seen it somewhere but now I'm not entirely sure. So the answer is "yes"! Also, a feature I really like is you can now see which other users are viewing the thread at the same time you are. Its on the right, if you scroll down under the reviews.

    When we were "in the sandbox" playing with the new features, there WAS a place to see who was online. I believe it was in the right column in our profile. However, it is not there anymore.

    It also has it's own page, https://www.backyardchickens.com/user.php?action=online

    At the bottom of this page, very top of the brown section, click the link were it says "1019 Active Users" and it brings up that page.

    A cool trick about that users online thing is that if you hover your cursor over a name you gets some options. Give it a try.

    Nothing happened when I put my cursor on a name. I thought maybe a 20 dollar bill would shoot out of my computer or something [​IMG]

    No, it shoots out of the computer of the person whose name you hover over. I've made $60 already today from BYC'ers hovering their mouse over my name. [​IMG]
