    "Ghost" Anonymous User Link to this post

    Hi, I've got a forum set-up where I've set the forum(s) not to allow any un-authorized viewing or commenting... But I still get an "Anonymous user" in the footer where it says: Currently Online: Anonymous user, Jacob

    Any ideas on what could cause this??

    I've attached a screendump of my access settings on one of the forums...

    You don't actually happened to be logged in do you?. It will show anon if a member whos logged in doesn't have a Nickname and usually the admin member doesn't have a nickname by default.

    Hi,
    No, I've quit all browsers, and logged in via the frontend with my Forum user (nickname: Jacob), It now says: Currently Online: Jacob, Anonymous user

    Any ideas?

    Well it does check for members who have been logged in in the past 15mins rather then just now. You might want to play around with the INTERVAL code in forum/code/ForumHolder.php in the CurrentlyOnline function.

    Spot on!

    That did the trick!

    Thank you big time!

    Now I only need to style my forum as nice as this one, and take the time to translate it all to danish :-D ... But why not, then it's done and the danish silverstripe user can enjoy a great module too!
