Modules in Joomla: Banners – Who’s Online

This module displays information about users currently browsing the web site. It is a module of administrator type. So from the Administrator module type list in Module Manager, select the module with the title Logged-in Users. The module will open in edit mode, as shown in Figure 8-37.

The Count field determines the number of names to be displayed that are logged in. The default value is 5. The Name field is used to specify what is to be displayed, whether it is the name of the user or his/her username.

From the Position combo box, choose the toolbar option to display the module at the top in the administrator interface. From the Access combo box, choose the Special option to make the output of the module visible to only authorized persons of the site, not every viewer.

After the Save & Close button is clicked, the list of logged-in member names will appear as shown in Figure 8-38.
