At the end of the forum index, there is a section called Users Online. This is a list of users who have recently used the forum. This feature can be enabled or disabled, and the definition of "recent" changed from Features and Options in the admin panel.

This list is ordered by most recent activity. Members who belong to color-coded membergroups (such as administrator or global moderator) will be color-coded on this list. Administrators, are shown in red and global moderators are shown in blue. Regular users appear in the default color used by the forum theme.

To learn more about what users are doing, select the Users Online icon or the link below the heading to display the Who's Online page. This page is a list of everyone (guests, members, and hidden) currently browsing the forum along with the last thing they tried to do on the forum. For example, this is the Who's Online page for simplemachines.org.

In versions 2.0 and forward, any user can use a drop-down list to choose whether to view members only, guests only, or all users.

Only administrators can view the activity of hidden users.
